Has recent stress and or an event left you struggling?

Anxiety is common and can get better.
You are a successful and driven professional who often feels like an imposter. You just need help working through some things that were really stressful. You might have felt this undercurrent of nervousness for as long as you can remember, or perhaps you’ve had recent difficulty in a relationship, work stress or family conflict that has been on your mind and you haven’t felt the same since then. The reality is that the intense experiences you’ve had can cloud all parts of your life.
Anxiety often looks like:
- Overthinking situations
- Having a hard time staying focused
- Trouble sleeping
- Avoiding people, places or situations
- Feeling panicky
- Knowing what you’re thinking may not be rational
- Easing the intense feelings with drugs, alcohol or other unhealthy ways
- Being more dependent than you’d like to on someone
- Feeling like you’re world is closing in on you
You may feel afraid to reflect or talk about painful things from the past because you fear they will overwhelm you. You fear you are too much for someone. You’ve thought, why bother opening up to someone; the past should stay in the past! You feel ashamed that it’s been this way for so long. You feel like you should have dealt with this already – but those feelings just won’t go away. It’s hard to admit this to anyone, even those you love and trust. You feel like they won’t really get it. You want to feel calm, connected and capable, but you don’t know how to get there. There’s nothing wrong with needing help. You’re only human after all.

Brainspotting is an effective brain-body therapy that uses the body’s natural capacity to heal itself Brainspotting is a technique that systematically helps us focus on specific anxieties and events that feel charged and cause discomfort for you. We will work together to design experiences that will generate a sense of calmness, connection and capacity in your whole being. Much like the body knows what to do when you get a wound, the psyche is no different. For the wound to heal, one needs to clean it and give it time to heal. The psyche has that capacity as well – it just needs to be provided with the conditions to heal. Brainspotting helps to provide those optimal conditions.

Anxiety from bad experiences can make us feel like we’re not in control of our own life, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Give yourself the time and space to exhale; to unload all that you carry around on a daily basis. Feel more in control of the craziness in your life right now. Finally, you’ll be armed with better skills and a knowing sense to handle what life throws at you. You can find clarity and peace.
