We use an integrative psychotherapy model which allows for a better adaptation of the therapy to each person (to their affective, behavioral, cognitive, and physiological levels of functioning, and spiritual beliefs) and it is in line with the recent guidelines by the American Psychological Association on what constitutes Evidence-Based Practice (American Psychological Association, 2006).
Counselling can help you cope, adapt and build skills to reduce distress or come to better understand patterns in your life in order to find and build newer healthier methods of coping.
Psychotherapy is a deeper process than counseling for clients that want to make significant changes by uncovering early history; becoming conscious of parts of the self; improving self-awareness, interrupt old neural pathways, and learn to redirect emotions, thoughts and behaviors and create new neural pathways.
By using neuro-plasticity based treatment and brain body based relational therapies, like Brainspotting (BSP) and Somatic Experiencing (SE) , our interventions support the client in identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of symptoms like anxiety, phobias, addictions, depression, and somatic pain.
Brainspotting™ – a neuroscience-informed therapy which targets the brain’s natural healing capacity can allow clients to move quickly through processing of traumatic experiences in a contained way. By using specific points in the client’s visual field to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain, clients experience both rapid relief of distress and profound insights.
Brainspotting is a form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with BioLateral sound, which is deep, direct, powerful yet focused and containing. The sound moves back and forth between right and left ears, balances activation of the right and left brain hemispheres and activates the parasympathetic, or calming, part of the nervous system. As the processing occurs mostly in the subcortical brain, this may involve less talking than in traditional talk therapy.
