post traumatic stress disorder
Brainspotting is a powerful treatment that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. It gives us a tool to locate, focus, process, and release experiences and symptoms that are typically out of reach of the conscious mind and language capacity.
ways to heal
EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes.
The Somatic Experiencing approach facilitates the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms. This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.
Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a way to help people with a broad variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing.
Problems helped by psychotherapy include difficulties in coping with daily life; the impact of trauma, medical illness or loss, like the death of a loved one; and specific mental disorders, like depression or anxiety. There are several different types of psychotherapy and some types may work better with certain problems or issues. Psychotherapy may be used in combination with medication or other therapies.
Patients gain relief from talking about issues they thought were impossible to discuss, in a private setting. Patients feel acceptance from their therapist about the thoughts and feelings being discussed. Since difficult issues can now be brought out into the open, new ways to think about the issues can be offered and discovered by both the patient and provider. This can bring a reduction in anxiety and depression.
