What is it?
Life has become so unpredictable and many unexpected incidents are capturing our minds with challenging images. Whether the image is from the news, family disasters or personal relationships, our brain and body often get stuck in a visual thought and can’t get a picture out of our head. This training will give you a BrainSpotting tool to help your client shift from the repeated vision and thoughts. (Previously presented as MovieSpotting)
What Brainspotters are saying:
ImageSpotting is a powerfully effective way to support clients as they move through challenging images they can’t stop thinking about. It can also help reduce the profound suffering from dreams, memories, negative thoughts and pain. Cynthia is a Senior Brainspotting Trainer whom I have known since before the inception of Brainspotting. She has years of experience working with the brain and body connection. I highly recommend you experience her teaching.

ImageSpot set up is beneficial for clients who experience intense anxiety about walking into a situation where they may see someone from their past, issues that seem to return, and images that get stuck. I use this to help clients with anticipatory anxiety about an upcoming event (i.e., exam, presentation, meeting someone new, interviewing, being in the same space as an ex-partner, etc.). Its effects are quick and are long-lasting. Wonderful addition to the Brainspotting family!
