I am a Certified​ Brainspotting Practitioner and also a Certified Provider of TRE (Tension, Stress & Trauma Release Exercises). This means that I have completed a thorough training in both modalities and have been assessed as competent at practicing them by the professional training bodies representing them, I am included in the International Directories of both.

I am fully committed to providing a professional therapy practice, where people can feel safe and able to engage in their own unique therapeutic process, while being, seen, felt and heard by me as their therapist.  I work online and in person and my treatment room is situated in a beautiful peaceful and private setting, near Glastonbury town centre.

I have confidence in both TRE and Brainspotting Therapy to help people heal and recover from the symptoms of tension, stress and trauma in their minds, brains and bodies.  Below is an overview of how both modalities work

Brainspotting Therapy

Brainspotting Therapy evolved from EMDR (eye movement desensitisation re-processing) and was developed by Dr David Grand. It is described as a brain – body based treatment that goes beyond the thinking mind to gain direct access to the deep brain where unprocessed memory is stored.

“What’s in the brain is in the body and what’s in the body is in the brain” is one of the phrases used to encapsulate the mechanics of Brainspotting. For example, the eyes are connected to the brain and the brain connects to the nervous system and into the body.​ Everything is connected so when we are feeling in our bodies we are feeling in our brains and vice versa.

“Where you look affects how you feel”, is another phrase used to describe the process, when we look at different points in our visual field we feel different sensations in the body. In Brainspotting we find a brainspot located in the visual field that responds to a place of activated feeling in the body associated with an issue or situation playing out in life.

We then allow the brain and body to process memory and feeling. The client looks at a spot and listens to bilateral sound through headphones that help the brain process. The therapist holds an attuned space and follows the client’s lead and supports them in the unfolding of the process.

Brainspotting allows the deep brain to process trauma held in the brain, nervous system and body in a safe and supported environment enabled by the attunement between therapist and client. It allows the activation held in in the nervous system to be processed and released by the brain and the body, which then allows the client to experience a deeper state of grounding and calm in their lives.

TRE (Tension Stress and Trauma Release Exercises)

TRE (Tension , Stress & Trauma Release Exercises) were developed by David Bercelli (Phd), as a series of seven exercises that activate the natural therapeutic shaking mechanism within the human body. The tremors/ shaking assist in releasing chronic held muscular tension patterns to allow the nervous system to return to a state of balance.

Trauma can mean anything that overwhelms the nervous system, whether it be physical, emotional or psychological in nature. The primitive part of our brain takes over instinctively, when we face a traumatic situation or event and our muscles contract to protect the body from the perceived threat of danger.

When we don’t release the charge from our bodies after the dangerous threat has passed, our brain reads that it is still out there and we remain in a primed and anxious state. In the long term, the unreleased tension can create aches and pains, digestive problems, PTSD symptoms, depression, anxiety and a host of other chronic conditions.

TRE is designed to release the muscular tension held in the body in a safe, comfortable and sustainable way. As tension is released, the body and mind return to a more balanced and relaxed state, chronic conditions can get better and we develop stronger resiliency in our systems to meet life’s challenges.

TRE can help people who have experienced developmental trauma, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and anyone who experiences stress and tension in their everyday lives.

TRE® has helped many thousands of people all over the world return to a state of balance and wellbeing. TRE® is a safe and effective stress release process for most people. If you have a physical or psychological condition that requires strict regulation, or have fragile psychological defences, a complex history of trauma or restricting physical or medical limitations you should consult your medical practitioner or a Certified TRE Provider prior to performing these exercises.
