Help with processing trauma
WHAT EXACTLY IS BRAINSPOTTING?
Brainspotting is a therapeutic technique that focuses on a much deeper level of brain processing. Instead of staying in the logical, rational parts of the brain, like we normally do with talk therapy, brainspotting addresses the deep emotional experiences that are held in the midbrain. Brainspotting has been shown to help people move past trauma or upsetting situations, improve anxiety, cope with grief and much more. It’s one of those things that’s hard to explain until you experience it!
It’s based on the understanding that where you look affects how you feel. Brainspotting may involve looking at a pointer or gazing at a spot in the room while listening to music—all of which has been found to help people access, process, and work through emotions and memories stored in the midbrain and in the body. Don’t worry; you don’t have to know exactly what to do. Your therapist will guide you in getting started and will be right there with you through the process.
