Trauma

Are you experiencing intrusive thoughts or flashbacks? Do you repeat the same theme of thought despite different situations?

Traumatic events can have a long-lasting impact, whether an individual has a history of multiple traumas, or a single event. Individuals that have experienced traumatic events often complain of symptoms that manifest into self-blame, indecisiveness, depression, anxiety, insomnia, feelings of insecurity, physical pain, low self-worth, lack of trust, poor memory and relationship issues.
Brainspotting
Some individuals complain of feeling “stuck” in the past. Talking about traumatic event(s) is the individual’s choice and is not necessary in order to receive help. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Attachment-Focused EMDR may be utilized to address the individual’s symptoms, and to work towards promoting healthier perceptions for creating balance in life.

Brainspotting is another therapy tool to address symptoms related to trauma. Brainspotting is a neurophysiological therapeutic technique which targets the “accumulated frozen traumas held in the [person’s] brain and body. Brainspotting, works by finding an eye position that coordinates with where the trauma is held in the brain. By gazing at a pointer in this eye position, the brain and body process and release the trauma, sometimes with remarkable speed”.

According to Dr. Grand, approximately 15,000 therapists are trained world-wide in Brainspotting Therapy.
