Brainspotting is a gentle yet effective way of moving through negative or traumatic past experiences where people find themselves stuck. Brainspotting reduces the likeliness of being re-traumatized in the way that traditional talk therapies can. People use Brainspotting when they are experiencing a lot of anxiety, pain or trauma.
Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD is classified as an anxiety disorder. PTSD occurs after you experience a traumatic event. Those events may have caused intense fear, powerlessness, or horror. Traumatic events may include abuse, rape, natural disaster, war, or accidents. PTSD can also be caused by witnessing a traumatic event such as domestic violence. If you experience a traumatic event it is typical for it to linger with you. It's common to feel some anxiety or depression after one of these events. However, if the lingering feelings of anxiety stick with you longer than a month and you are having a harder time functioning as well as you were before the event, then you may have developed PTSD. PTSD symptoms can sometimes occur months and even years after the event.EMDR and Brainspotting are two methods to treat PTSD. They are both brain-based therapies that let your brain process trauma to stay centered and grounded during the anxiety.
