Brainspotting is an advanced brain-body therapy that focuses on identifying, processing, and releasing imbalances, trauma, and residual emotional stress. It is based on the premise that ‘where you look affects how you feel’ and finds that eye positions correlate with unconscious, emotional experiences. It reaches parts of the brain that are not generally accessed through traditional talk therapy approaches.
It has roots in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and similarly supports the reprocessing of negative experiences and retrains emotional reactions. Brainspotting can be used on its own or in addition to other therapies.
Brainspotting has been proven to be highly effective in a wide range of settings and issues, including:
- PTSD and Complex Trauma
- Developmental Trauma
- Negative Emotions
- Creative Blocks
- Self-sabotage and unhealthy patterns
- Chronic Stress
- Performance anxiety
- And many other issues…
