Brainspotting offers people the opportunity to receive immediate and long lasting relief from trauma, PTSD, accidents, anxiety, depression, sports performance challenges, chronic illness, OCD, grief, as well as relationship issues and beliefs which have a negative impact on their lives. It simultaneously helps them connect to internal resources, talents and life skills.

Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releaseing core neuro-physiological sources of emitonal and physical pain, and unhealthy coping mechanisms associated with distressing events and beliefs. It allows the client to channel the healthy "head" knowledge they possess to transform debilitating traumatic memories and the negative beliefs they feel in relations to the incident.
