Trauma therapy is like emotional first aid for the mind and heart to address the psychological and emotional aftermath of traumatic experiences. It's a type of counseling that helps people who have been through really difficult times in their life, like accidents, childhood trauma, natural disasters, domestic violence, sudden loss of a loved one, or experiences of sexual or physical abuse.
Brainspotting (see below) is a profoundly great technique to aimed to help individuals regain a sense of safety, manage distressing symptoms, and gradually integrate their traumatic memories into a more adaptive narrative.
Healing takes courage. It asks us to confront the most tender and hurt parts of ourselves, all in the pursuit of self- liberation and growth. Sessions may not always be easy, but my intention is to hold a safe, supportive, compassionate and non-judgmental environment for you, so that you can heal from those traumatic experiences and get back to feeling like yourself again.
The human brain, body, and psyche possess a remarkable innate capacity for self-healing. At its core, Brainspotting is a therapeutic approach that taps into the brain's own innate ability to heal. It's like a GPS for your emotions, helping you navigate through life's challenges. Discovered by Dr. David Grand, Brainspotting is founded on the fundamental principle that "where you looks affects how you feel." Brainspotting identifies specific Brainspots within a client's visual field to access unresolved and unprocessed trauma residing in the subcortical regions of the brain.
Brainspotting can be used on its own or alongside traditional talk therapy. It's an effective way to access the subcortical regions of the brain and promote healing through various challenges, including (but not limited to) trauma, grief, anxiety, fears, performance issues, creative barriers, anger management, addiction, negative self-perceptions, depression, and chronic pain.
During a Brainspotting session, we will work together to identify specific "brainspots", these are focal points in your visual field connected to your emotional and neural experiences. By focusing on these spots, your brain begins to process and release deep-seated, un-resolved emotions and traumas, leading to relief from anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.
