|Brainspotting is another powerful method that produces quick results by using bilateral sounds while focusing, identifying, re-processing and finally releasing the core neurophysiological causes of negative emotional, mental, physical symptoms. It is successful on a variety of issues because it is deep, direct, very focused and is based on the profound attunement I establish with my client. We find a somatic cue then release it by decreasing the amygdala’s influence, activating the parasympathetic nervous system and creating homeostasis. It is similar to EMDR and was developed by Dr. David Grand who trained extensively with Francine Shapiro. I started training with him and his associate, Lisa Swartz in 2003. Brainspotting begins to integrate the two sides of the brain until the issue has been resolved, removed, or integrated and my client will feel free of the issue, relieved, and uplifted.
One of my clients had suffered a very abusive childhood and while working on these issues using the Brainspotting technique she commented that while we worked on one side of her brain she felt like Dr. Jekyll and while working on the other side she felt like Mr. Hyde. Near the end of the session she said she felt the two sides had integrated and she didn’t have the negative feelings when she thought about all the abuses she had experienced. Instead she knew what had happened in her childhood wasn’t right but now she was experiencing feeling really good about herself. She was empowered to make positive changes in her life, which she has done and become very successful.
