    Brainspotting Therapy

    You’ve been struggling for too long, but it’s time to make a change.

    You have so many goals for yourself, and you’re motivated to achieve them. But your anxiety, depression, or past trauma is holding you back. Maybe you’ve achieved your goals but you feel as if you’re a fraud. Or, your perfectionism is so severe that it affects your thinking about the future or you have difficulty completing tasks.Photo of a woman sitting on a couch looking anxious with her hand on her forehead. This photo represents how brainspotting therapy in California can help you overcome your anxiety symptoms and live a happier life.

    Perhaps, you are having conflicts with your parents over cultural differences and their expectations which has led to feelings of shame or guilt. Maybe you’re wanting to work on your self-confidence and communication skills to remedy this but your inner critic is holding you back. You just know that you’re capable of more but want to feel better about yourself first. 

    What is Brainspotting Therapy?

    Brainspotting is a type of psychotherapy that can help you work on unresolved trauma, anxiety, challenging life events, and stress. It does this by helping you identify and process your thoughts and emotions around these topics.  In brainspotting therapy, where you look can affect the way you feel. This is why there will be a therapist who will help you position your eyes in ways that help you to spot the sources of your negative feelings. With the help of a pointer, the therapist will guide your eyes to find the “brain spot”.

    For example,  if you’re feeling a lot of anxiety around a certain event such as driving or family gatherings, the therapist will help you find the “brain spot” for that anxiety. Once the brain spot is identified, you and the therapist will help you to identify the thoughts and emotions that are causing this anxiety. Once you’ve identified these, you can work on processing them and resolving the issue.

    How Can Brainspotting at Sweet Mango Therapy Group Help?

    Brainspotting is beneficial to help you process trauma and other emotions that you may have been struggling to deal with on your own. This way you will have the support you need to process these emotions and start working through them so you can live the life you want.

    Brainspotting can also help with:

    • Lessening the hold that these events have on your life
    • Improving your self-esteem and confidence
    • Helping you communicate more effectively
    • Working through difficult emotions

    However, it’s important to remember each person is different, and so is each situation. The number of sessions you will need depends on the severity and type of issue you want to address.
