Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological (brain and body-based) sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms.
Brainspotting works with the deep brain and the body through its direct access to the autonomic and limbic systems within the body’s central nervous system. Brainspotting is accordingly a physiological tool/treatment which has profound psychological, emotional, and physical consequences.
Brainspotting reduces intensity or strength of symptoms (anxiety, depression, panic, etc.) and the length of time these episodes last, and aids in quicker recovery time after episodes of challenge and stress. This is done through aiding the nervous system in regulating and processing stress or troublesome memories. Through regulating the nervous system people are more able to feel calm and grounded, and have these feelings last longer and experience them more often. Clients report increases in spontaneity, self confidence, and ability to deal with life’s stresses.
