Brain/body based therapy
Brain based therapy, or brain/body based therapies work holistically with you, and your nervous system.
In your brain you have about one hundred billion neurotransmitters (think of wires), and about over 100 trillion synapses (think of a plug in a socket). These neurotransmitters are sending signals all the time, and new neurons are being formed, even well into adulthood..
How do I work with this approach?
Well, your eyes are wired (by one million fibres) to your midbrain, (the part of your brain that deals with emotion, feeling and memory), so there is a corresponding eye position to where you are feeling what you are feeling.
The eyes are like a transmitter directly into your brain/body/mind.. I use eye positions, and sometimes eye movements to process difficult emotion, feeling, and memory - by getting to the core of where the difficulty is. This method bypasses the Neocortex somewhat (the thinking and aware part of the brain), to allow deep processing and healing.
The therapies I use are called Brainspotting (founder: Dr. David Grand) & Eye Movement Integration (founder: Danie Beaulieu).
What can BSP & EMI be helpful for?
These therapies are an approach in themselves, so can be used for anything. I usually use them for addictions, anxiety, trauma and deeper rooted problems when talking cannot reach the depths of the issue. They are great for targeting addiction, anxiety, and trauma inc. PTS(d).
