What is Brainspotting (BSP)?
Brainspotting is a psychotherapy technique that uses eye positions to access and process traumatic memories, emotions, and bodily sensations. It is based on the premise that “where you look affects how you feel.” By finding the specific eye position or “brain spot” that connects with a psychological issue, the counselor can help the client release and heal from it. BSP can be used for various conditions, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, phobias, and chronic pain. It can also enhance performance and creativity in sports, arts, and other domains.
What is Solution Focused Therapy?
Solution-focused brief therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the client’s strengths and resources rather than their problems and deficits. It helps the client to identify and amplify their preferred outcomes and to build on their existing skills and abilities to achieve them. Solution-focused brief therapy is based on the assumption that the client is the expert in their own lives and that they can create positive change. When we work from solution-focused therapy, we focus on the here and now and what we need to do to reach our goals. Moreover, we work together to find solutions instead of exploring and reinforcing our problems. This approach is convenient and can help clients find their answers quickly. Suppose you have been in therapy before and are used to telling your story repeatedly and relieving these problematic experiences. In that case, this will feel very different and uncomfortable. This intervention aims not to focus on your problems; instead, we focus on your solutions to these problems.

The Counseling Process
The counseling process is a collaborative effort between the counselor and the client. It involves the following stages: establishing a trusting relationship, exploring the client’s issues and goals, developing a treatment plan, implementing interventions, and evaluating progress. Ethical principles and professional standards guide the counseling process.
