An Extraordinary Way To Heal Your Brain

Brainspotting For Healing

Brainspotting therapist working with a client in Matthews, NC. Brainspotting for trauma is a common therapy that clients are looking for. The client is listening to bio-lateral music during a brainspotting session. Brainspotting therapy sessions are offered in North Carolina and South Carolina.

What is a Brainspotting Session Like?

During the initial intake, you and your therapist will discuss any relevant personal history, current concerns, and goals. During a brainspotting session, your therapist will walk you through the steps to prepare. Ideally during a Telehealth session, prepare to meet on a computer (or a larger screen), have with you your headphones/earbuds, a phone (or device to play music), and a scarf/bandana (something to cover one eye).
The session will start with your therapist asking what you would like to focus on for the session. You may be instructed to turn on the bio-lateral music and listen at a soft volume through your headphones/earbuds. From there, your therapist will help guide you into finding your brainspot. You may be looking at the tip of a pointer and asked to notice any differences in your body. The experience is highly individualized and unique. You may notice a dream like sequence playing out in your mind, various sensation in your body, or thoughts that could be connected or completely unrelated to your initial area of focus. Your therapist will be right there with you to guide you through every moment of the process.
