Trauma & Brainspottng

Trauma can trap us in the past. It can result in reliving painful memories as if they are still happening, dwelling on experiences that still haunt us, or avoiding people and places that cause us distress and anxiety. Brainspotting is a way to process our emotions and memories in a way that is not achievable through talk therapy alone.


Brainspotting Therapy

Brainspotting began as a variation of the more common Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EDMR). It was originally used by clinicians as an intervention for symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. However, Brainspotting is now recognized for its wide range of therapeutic treatment benefits.

Grounded in the growing scientific understanding of how the brain stores trauma, Brainspotting therapy is an evidence-based alternative to EDMR. Specific spots in our field of vision activate the connection between our optic nerve and the places in our brains where certain memories are stored. Through using eye-guided movement, clinicians identify the "brainspot" that activates a direct connection to a traumatic memory. From there, the clinician can help their client explore and release the intense emotions associated with that memory.
