BRAINSPOTTING THERAPY FOR DEEPER HEALING
90% of survivors of emotional abuse have some form of trauma like symptoms and 50-75% of survivors have full-blown PTSD or C-PTSD.
This is not a normal break- up
Cognitive dissonance caused from the trauma- bonding, in the love-bombing stage, is the #1 reported symptom and the most difficult to heal. Talk therapy alone will not help this.
Many therapists do not understand the trauma of narcissistic abuse because the survivor’s symptoms are “ atypical” and different than the more typical symptoms of PTSD.
Some examples of atypical symptoms caused by the impact of abuse on the brain
- flashbacks of the positive events which cause pain and longing in the remembering
- back and forth thinking of both the good and bad memories
- constant rumination of the positive events and the betrayal
- rumination of trying to make sense of it all
- distorted feelings of guilt or blame, “ what’s wrong with me”
- dysregulated emotional state
- problems with thinking, sleeping, or functioning due to hyper-aroused flight or fight system
Long-term exposure to a psychologically disordered person affects the brain, the emotional body and eventually wears down the physical body and can make you sick.
The brain and body hold stored and frozen energy deep within the sub-cortical brain. Brainspotting allows the old “files” to gently open and release. The process will settle your nervous system, create calm again, clear your heart and mind and return you to a state of confidence and health. This is done in conjunction with psychotherapy and grief work.
It is a powerful and gentle process all done in a safe space where you can begin to return to freedom and walk in the light again with dignity.
