“It is my pleasure to endorse Cynthia as a gifted, dedicated therapist. From when we first met in 2001, prior to my developing Brainspotting, I could clearly perceive her strength, insight and wisdom as a clinician. She is an excellent listener, deeply attuned and non-judgmental. Cynthia synthesizes a variety of modalities in her Brainspotting work. Her use of the mind/body connection is a key ingredient in effective Brainspotting therapy. Cynthia is a creatively gifted therapist who is continually growing both personally and professionally”.
-Dr. David Grand, Founder Brainspotting Therapy
What is it? Brainspotting is based on “Where you look affects how you feel.” It is a powerful mind/body therapy that has rapid effects. We see with our eyes and our brains. Brainspotting helps the client work with deep focused mindfulness and fixed eye positions to process and release an emotionally and bodily-based condition such as PTSD, phobia, trauma, relationship issues. It is also helpful for expanding the body reservoir of vitality and opening to new awareness for enhancing life and improving performance.
We seek therapy when we are out of balance and can’t resolve things on our own. In a supportive therapeutic setting, the Brainspotting tool is used to allow your body’s innate wisdom to come back to homeostasis.
Effective Results: My clients find the cause of their conflicts and turn them into growth opportunities.
Could it help me? Brainspotting is a useful technique for you if you have worked on yourself for a while and feel you still can’t shift something that is holding you stuck.
When we go through a trauma in life, we naturally react with fight, flight or freeze. When we freeze –a connection of the feelings we had at the time of trauma and a feeling in our body occurs. That stuck-frozen feeling becomes formatted within us and re-occurs when we encounter similar situations with new challenges. Often to create a new way of approaching life more harmoniously—we need to complete the movement that did not happen in the original trauma.
Brainspotting allows your body to release the stress that it learned in the past. This focused attention on a situation seems to trigger deep in our brain the area that contains unprocessed memory and feeling. It appears to tap into our own body’s innate wisdom to heal. It has the potential to unlock the circular thinking, negative thoughts, self-protective patterns and limited beliefs we continuously act from even when we don’t want to.
