EMDR and Brainspotting: Sports Performance Therapy and Creative Enhancement
Athletes, musicians, performers, public speakers (academic, business or social settings) can all experience distress/trauma that inhibits the performance that can have a negative effect as they approach the next opportunity. Classic talk therapy often falls short in helping an athlete or performer rid themselves of these negative effects and reach their maximum potential.
EMDR and Brainspotting are brain/body based treatments, it allows clients to process the difficulty (inhibiting anxiety, injury, negative self image), or trauma (witness an injury or accident in a game or performance), while also untangling the thoughts and beliefs attached to the trauma. This leads to relief from the inhibiting distress/ trauma that creates negative effects and “blocks” the performer from reaching peak performance.
After successful treatment, the client can regain the sense of flow and mastery of performance that they desire.
