TO RELIEVE ADDICTION, TRAUMA, DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
Where you look affects how you feel
Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the brain. Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. . Dr. Grand discovered that “Where you look affects how you feel.” It is the brain activity, especially in the subcortical brain that organizes itself around that eye position.
With focus and precision, using bilateral stimulation, a certified brainspotting therapist can identify the brainspots, where you are holding the trauma, the anxiety, the depression, the relational problems, allowing the brain to process the problems, from the inside-out, from the bottom up.
BRAINSPOTTING THERAPY FOR SEX ADDICTION TREATMENT
One of main causes of sex and porn addiction is a lack of emotional attunement and connection due to traumatic experiences, usually in childhood.
Identifying and mindfully attuning to these memories and events will allow you to begin healing faster than you could have imagined possible.
Brainspotting can also provide benefits for co-occurring issues that often occur with sex addiction, such as:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): By utilizing Brainspotting, you can begin work through the triggering events and soothe the anxiety, so you don’t continue to respond immediately without considering the consequences of your actions.
- Impulsivity: Through BSP sessions, you can discover where past core beliefs are stored in your body and mind and break the link between the irrational belief and acting impulsively.
- Depression: Brainspotting can help you become aware of the connections between where you look and how you feel. By reimagining trauma and stress, resentments and anger, you will gain control over your thoughts, leading you to feel more balanced, less angry and happier.
- Anxiety: Once you’ve identified and explained what you fear about the future, a mindfulness exercise like Brainspotting will help you feel more connected with the present moment.
