Brainspotting therapy helps people process and overcome traumatic experiences, as well as, help “smooth” life’s every day static and stress.
It involves identifying a “brain spot,” a particular location in the brain where psychological trauma is held, and then uses eye movement techniques to activate the brain’s self-healing mechanisms. Brainspotting is believed to be effective because it taps into the brain’s ability to rewire itself, helping the individual to process and release negative emotions and memories. Brainspotting is often used in conjunction with other forms of therapy, such as CBT, ACT or talk therapy, and has been shown to be especially effective for individuals who have experienced trauma or are dealing with PTSD.
If you’re dealing with trauma or emotional pain, Brainspotting can help you to process and release the underlying issues that are contributing to your distress. By activating specific points in your brain that are connected to your emotional pain, your counselor can help you to release the trauma and move forward in a positive and healthy way.
