EMDR and Brainspotting

Trauma persists – even after therapy.

You feel hopeless.

It seems like you’ve tried everything to heal this trauma, but it keeps cycling back, reminding you once again what happened.

You’ve even tried therapy in the past to stop those thoughts from replaying over and over. But you felt like it made things worse.

You want something different – something that goes deeper and is more effective.

EMDR offers an alternative approach.

EMDR is a therapy technique that uses bilateral eye movement (like what your eyes do when sleeping).

While you are processing information, both sides of your brain receive stimulation simultaneously. This stimulation allows you to process trauma or other negative thoughts while also promoting positive feelings.

Developed initially as a treatment for trauma, EMDR also helps treat various other issues, including anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and any other “blockages” you find yourself experiencing.

Brainspotting developed out of EMDR.

Brainspotting emerged out of EMDR. Rather than bilateral eye movement, Brainspotting uses a set eye position in your visual field to target unprocessed trauma or other issues.

You will focus on beliefs and bodily sensations to fully tune in to the process.

Brainspotting sessions can be quite different from traditional therapy sessions, as you can talk as much or as little as you need during your processing.

There is no right or wrong. Your brain guides the healing.

Find a different path for dealing with trauma.

Both Brainspotting and EMDR target a deeper part of the brain than traditional talk therapy.

These techniques rewire pathways in the brain leading to sustained change and improvement in symptoms and beliefs.

Most of our clients agree that to grasp Brainspotting and EMDR fully requires experiencing them for yourself.
