Brainspotting is an advanced psychotherapeutic approach that accesses deep levels of the subcortical brain to help clients process traumatic events. The subcortical brain is responsible for primitive functions, such as emotions, consciousness, and social operations. Brainspotting involves identifying a “brainspot” in a client’s visual field where intense physiological and psychological feeling is held. This alternative therapeutic style was developed by Dr. David Grand in 2003. Dr. Grand is a contributor to the field of psychology, with special recognition to EMDR. Brainspotting theory is based on the notion that trauma can become trapped in the body. Brainspotting is an attuned, brain-based approach that aims to release the physical stress trapped within the body, which in turns, releases emotional stress in the body. Brainspotting can help with anxiety, trauma, PTSD, depression, and attachment. Check out this YouTube on Brainspotting to further understand Brainspotting.
Sand tray therapy is a creative outlet for children, teens, and adults to work through cognitive and emotional distress. Sand tray was developed by Dr. Margaret Lowenfeld in the 1920s. It is a nonverbal intervention that allows clients to express and explore thoughts, feelings, and situations. It involves sand, water, figurines, and miniatures. Sand tray enables clients to construct their own world through the play of sand. Sand tray is a wonderful tool to empower, inspire, and heal the mental and physical psyche.
IFS is a transformative tool that conceives every human being as a system of protective and wounded inner parts lead by a core Self. We believe the mind is naturally multiple and that is a good thing. Just like members of a family, inner parts are forced from their valuable states into extreme roles within us. Self is in everyone. It can’t be damaged. It knows how to heal.
IFS is frequently used as an evidence-based psychotherapy, helping people heal by accessing and healing their protective and wounded inner parts. IFS creates inner and outer connectedness by helping people first access their Self and, from that core, come to understand and heal their parts.
