Brainspotting (BSP) locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. BSP makes use of this natural phenomenon through its use of relevant eye positions. With BSP, Luisa helps clients locate, focus, process and release a wide range of emotionally and bodily-based conditions. BSP is also a brain-based tool to support the therapy relationship. BSP taps into and harnesses the body’s natural self-scanning, self-healing ability.
Every couple experiences missteps concerning their relationship. Relationships start with an intense connection but, over time, the level of attentiveness to one another naturally drops off, creating a feeling that the connection has been damaged. If the couple fights can become standard, gain momentum, and they can take over, resulting in a devastating feeling of loneliness. EFT helps couples correct these negative interactions.
