I discovered Brainspotting Therapy several years ago when a colleague introduced it to me. I thought it sounded interesting, but never found time to take a training to learn more. Fast forward several years and I had the opportunity to take a 3-day training. Within the first twenty minutes I was hooked and amazed at how effective and transformative it could be for clients.
By the end of the third day of the training, I felt empowered to use the training with my clients and immediately saw results. In one session, I saw results that would have taken months to achieve with some more traditional therapy methods. My clients and I noticed anxiety and depression symptoms rapidly reduce and subside. Intrusive thoughts were reduced. PTSD flashbacks and symptoms were reduced. Encouraged by the results that I saw in my clients, I continued my training in Brainspotting and eventually went on to complete the requirements to become a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner.
I offer Brainspotting therapy to all of my clients and many enjoy utilizing it. While some prefer traditional talk therapy, I am happy to incorporate what the client feels is best for their goals. In addition to Brainspotting, I also use traditional and effective therapy methods such as Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solutions Focused Therapy and various other effective forms of therapy.
