Brainspotting & EMDR

Both Brainspotting and EMDR therapies have the goal to reprocess negative events and retrain emotional reactions. EMDR, while older and has had more research, Brainspotting has been reported to have had less immediate residual effects.

Brainspotting has been primarily used in trauma therapy and for the treatment of PTSD. However, it has shown to assist with chronic pain and inattention, stress, and low motivation. Trauma has often been connected to not only somatic issues, but to have an impact in overall mental health including: anger, procrastination, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty sleeping. Therefore, Brainspotting could be highly effective for individuals who would like to address one or several areas of concern.
