Strengthen Your Hypnosis Practice with Brainspotting: Help clients get to the underlying cause

Are some of your clients unable to sustain change after multiple hypnosis sessions? Get to the underlying cause and make change permanent by using Brainspotting, a modality identifying a visual spot that accesses the location  where incidents, memories and traumas are held in the unconscious mind.  Processing the incident de-activates the physiological responses and gets to the underlying cause of the issue.  Following a Brainspotting session with hypnosis provides lasting change and a strong state of hypnosis very quickly.  During the session, clients use bi-lateral music to stimulate the right and left sides of the brain to allow for faster processing.  Dual attunement, being in the moment and holding the frame are all keys to an effective session.
You will be able to:
  •     Explain  the differences and similarities between hypnosis and Brainspotting
  •     Observe and compare a live demo of Brainspotting to a  hypnosis session to follow
  •     Analyze the clients experience and how their clients  would benefit
  •     Describe the benefits of this modality to their practice

Looking to add another modality to your hypnosis practice that provides you with the ability to de-activate an underlying cause for the reason they are seeking hypnosis? Or perhaps, is confidence holding you back from building your practice? Want to strengthen the suggestions to your clients? Have you turned a client away, or had them decide hypnosis wasn’t their thing? If you answered, “yes” to any of these, adding the modality of Brainspotting is just what your business needs.

Brainspotting is a technique utilizing visual locations correlating to access points in the mind where unprocessed traumas, emotions or events lay. Brainspotting is a form of self-processing to deactivate the physiological responses of our body by unprocessed events and brings a client from dysregulation to regulation. Closing a Brainspotting session with hypnosis sends the client home with an even deeper immediate feeling closure and progress.

This is not a course on learning how to become a Brainspotting practitioner, as a matter of fact, it’s much like hypnosis where you will need to take classes and practicums to get the basics. However, you will leave the class with what Brainspotting is, the science behind it and why Brainspotting has a place in a hypnosis practice and the benefits. I will share how and why I chose to add this to my practice and the value. Students will participate in a few short exercises that provide a foundational understanding of the modality.

Those interested in watching a Brainspotting session, will have the opportunity in a 2-hour session that will include the above information followed by a demonstration in which a volunteer (see the instructor prior to the start of class if you are interested in being the client) will get to experience the process in front of the class. The session will include a short debrief and questions to the client.
