Brainspotting

Brainspotting will help you reach deep levels of the unconscious brain which aids the process of treatment.

Brainspotting was discovered by Dr David Grand in 2003 whilst using EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) to treat his clients.  Dr Grand has used it to successfully treat people who have been through natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina, those who survived the attacks on the World Trade Center, and also veterans who served in combat. However it teats much more than trauma alone. It is effective in treating anxiety, depression, phobia, anger, long term health conditions.  It is also used to help athletes overcome ailments that are preventing them from performing their best, whether due to a physical injury or mental distress.

brainspot describes an eye position that correlates with the part of the brain that is holding a negative memory. The negative memory is not processed correctly and instead becomes stuck in the unconsciousness in an attempt to prevent it from causing us issues in the current day. The brain has good intentions, but the reality is that by only storing these negative memories the brain is doing more harm than good.

There are many similarities between Brainspotting and EMDR, however Brainspotting uses fixed point focus identified by the therapist in collaboration with the client rather than eye-movement. Many clients report that Brainspotting feels less intrusive and distressing than EMDR.  It is not unusual for people to put off seeking help due to their fear of talking about their traumatic event or problems.  During Brainspotting therapy, there is no need to talk about these things, the processing will be just as effective even without talking about the event.

As a Brainspotting therapist I can help you access those negative memories or traumas and help you release them from the sub cortex area of the brain, allowing your  mind and your body to heal quickly.
