What is Brainspotting?

What is the fastest way to treat anxiety and trauma in Birmingham, AL? 

Brainspotting is a revolutionary new trauma processing tool. It is based on the latest neuroscience available and is one of the newer treatments for PTSD. Trauma activates our bodies making us feel, angry or scared before we can intellectually understand why.  Brainspotting allows patients release the physical symptoms of anxiety and trauma that effect their thoughts and behaviors.  

 

In a Brainspotting session a therapist holds a pointer that and looks for an eye position that a patient's brain associates with a part of a traumatic event. Often this is the eye position where a patient was looking during a traumatic event. Brainspotting works faster and processes the effect of trauma, especially somatic reactions to trauma more deeply. Brainspotting does this by activating the deepest part of our fight or flight and emotional center.
