Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neuro-physiological sources of emotional and physical pain, and unhealthy coping mechanisms associated with PTSD and trauma. It allows clients to process and transform debilitating traumatic memories and the negative beliefs they feel in relation to the incidents. It was developed from EMDR by Dr. David Grand, who worked with thousands of people in NY impacted by 9/11.
BSFF (Be Set Free Fast™)
Be Set Free Fast stands for “Behavioral and Emotional Symptom Elimination Training for Resolving Excess Emotion: Fear, Anger, Sadness, and Trauma.” This is a quick, simple, and gentle technique designed to eliminate the emotional roots and self-limiting belief systems embedded in the subconscious mind that lead to dysfunctional thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. BSFF is very useful as a stress reduction and emotional self-regulation technique and can be used anywhere, anytime.
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
Neuro Emotional Technique is a mind-body stress reduction technique that uses principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to identify and release negative emotional patterns stuck in the body. Research and case studies show that when these blocks are cleared, energy flows freely, the body is better able to heal itself, and people are no longer triggered by unresolved stressful or traumatic events from the past. Clients often experience an increased sense of vitality and well-being, and the positive effects experienced in one area tend to generalize to other areas of life.
Access Consciousness® comprises a set of simple tools (including verbal processing and hands-on energy work) designed to clear limiting points of view, raise consciousness, and empower people to help themselves. Access Consciousness is based on the idea that you're not wrong, that you know, and that consciousness can shift anything. One of the greatest tools of Access is The Bars. These are 32 bars of energy on the head that store the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, judgments, and beliefs that people have. Having one’s Bars run (i.e., lightly touching each bar) allows a person to discharge all of that energy and brings a feeling of calm and relaxation. This energy work greatly supports and enhances the trauma processing, and those who receive Bars sessions often find that they are able to change their lives with far greater ease.
