Brainspotting – BSP
Brainspotting (BSP) therapy is a type of alternative therapy that helps to process past trauma by using spots in a person’s visual field. This therapy method will access trauma stored in the subcortical brain – the area of the brain responsible for motion, consciousness, emotions, vision and hearing, learning, and sleep. Brainspotting works by focusing on the midbrain which has control over parts of the bodies central nervous system.
The Brainspotting brain-body technique and is an effective and advanced form of psychotherapy. This method is used for treating a variety of emotional issues such as PTSD, unprocessed past traumas, anxiety and depression, and other forms of difficult psychological distress.
When someone has experienced trauma, related feelings can become trapped in the body, leading to problems both physical and mentally. The subcortical part of the brain typically goes into freeze mode to conserve resources for the body to be in defence mode.
EMDR is a therapeutic approach that helps people to heal from the emotional distress, traumatic events, and disturbing instances that have created physical and emotional issues that can become stuck in a person’s brain.
This therapy method aims to reprocess memories of traumatic events and make the emotional impact of these memories less intense.
EMDR therapy works in a comparable way to natural Rapid Eye Movement (REM) during sleep. REM sleep causes your eyes to move one side to another as they process events that have occurred in the day. By offering the brain ‘something else’ to do whilst the events are processed can help to make them less vivid. This allows the person to healthily distance themselves from it and promote a calmer state of mind.
All of our team have been through a rigorous assessment process and are registered to the BCAP and UKCP with the relevant established professional bodies/organisations.
