Karen DeKleva Rebottini Therapy
Brain spotting is a theraputic tool that releases the neuro-physiological component supporting psychological difficulties with Brainspotting. Brainspotting was developed in 2002 by David Grand, Ph.D., an internationally recognized trauma expert.
Brain Spotting as a treatment method, identifies, processes, and releases core neurophysiologic sources underlying emotional issues, physical problems and an array of challenging symptoms.
Research supports the fact that what one thinks and feels is held and expressed in the body. The body carries the problem, bares the burden. We all have felt anxiety in the body such as butterflies in the stomach, and who hasn’t experienced a headache from stress and tension. Brainspotting is a technique that identifies eye positions, designated as brainspots, associated with a particular physical sensation such as the butterflies in the stomach. Once identified the eye position is held until the patient reports the negative physical sensation as dissipated. The physiologic component of a mental and emotional problem is released.
Brainspots are observed from either the client's felt sense or the client’s reflexive responses noted by the therapist.
Brainspotting is integrated within your ongoing treatment, adaptable to almost all types of difficult symptoms from free floating anxiety, phobias, physical illness, depression, traumatic experiences, to building personal competency, extending feelings of relaxation and increasing intuitive skills.
