Brainspotting at Resilient Child Therapy

“Where you look affects how you feel.”

We are now offering Brainspotting as a psychotherapy intervention at Resilient Child Therapy Institute. This past year, our CEO, Kristian Owens, was personally trained by Dr. David Grand, the founder/developer of Brainspotting. Kristian is the first therapist to offer this intervention in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting is a gentle, brain-body approach that works by identifying, processing, and releasing stored negative and traumatic experiences from the brain to help individuals heal from within.

Below is an informative video about Brainspotting and how it’s used in session.

Who can participation Brainspotting and what issues does it address?

Brainspotting can be used with children, adolescents, and adults within psychotherapy treatment. Brainspotting can assist with most clinical difficulties, including mood disorders, post-traumatic stress/trauma, ADHD and disruptive behaviors, performance issues, and many more!

Check out this video of clients sharing their experience with Brainspotting.

Brainspotting has the ability to tap into the “felt sense” of an experience that talk therapy does not have the ability to do. Just like play therapy and expressive art therapies, Brainspotting addresses the deeply stored emotional experience of trauma that is governed by the subconscious brain.

Difference Between Brainspotting and Talk Therapy

Many of our clients have felt empowered by Brainspotting because it allows them to be in the “drivers seat” of their healing process. The therapist provides a mindful presence while holding space for optimal healing.
