How Brainspotting Therapy Works

At Susan Rivieccio, LMFT I’m here to provide Brainspotting therapy. When there has been trauma in your life, this form of therapy allows you to take the lead.

Brainspotting therapy allows me to follow your lead. I’ll pick up the clues that you’re giving in order to help you find out where to look to tap into where you’re hurting. This can streamline things for you to get the relief you need.

Where you look matters… imagine your eyes looking upward as you “search” in the “file cabinets” of your mind as you are recalling something to share with a friend.  This is the same process that’s happening when you find a Brainspot.  I can help you tap into one of these “file cabinets” that is storing trapped traumatic experiences.   Brainspotting identifies an eye position that triggers and releases these emotions.  Brainspotting promotes both mental and physical healing by regulating the brain’s control of the body. It is in this way the brain can be stimulated to heal itself from the inside.  Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of therapist with the client, finding a somatic clue and extinguishing it by down-regulating the amygdala.

There’s no reason to go through grief and trauma alone.

I have worked with many clients who appreciate the fact that you can talk or say nothing at all during the process.  It most often gives immediate symptom relief and often brings new insights.   Call now to schedule an appointment with me.
