Brainspotting and EMDR

After realising that my memory from childhood had been preventing me from getting the most of my life, I approached SCC and Angie for help. Angie recommended me to try out the therapeutic approaches of Brainspotting and EMDR.

Every session, we would work on a piece of unpleasant memory from my childhood. During the sessions, Angie would work on my visual field, and I would focus on sensations of my body. Surprisingly, the emotions induced could sometimes be rather strong, to the extent that I burst into tears a couple of times throughout our sessions. I often felt much lighter after the Brainspotting and EMDR session, not only due to relishing the unpleasant emotions but more importantly, rewiring the memories. I vividly remember that after one session, the initially grey and gloomy images of a piece of my memory were transformed into colourful and blissful ones. I also managed to remember more joyful details which I initially thought were nonexistent.

These changes have greatly helped me to re-examine my relationship with my family of origin, to send love to the younger Me, and to move on in my life with more self-love and confidence. I sincerely thank Angie for being such a knowledgeable teacher, a strong source of support and a trustworthy partner in my journey of self-transformation.

[Testimonial] Brainspotting & EMDR

I have had positive responses with brainspotting and EMDR as part of my therapy. The first time I tried EMDR was to deal with the episodes of intense anxiety after a breakup. During the session, I could feel the anxiety leaving my body. After the first session, I could feel that my anxiety level has significantly reduced and it was a lot easy to cope.

During the sessions, she introduced me to EMDR/ Brainspotting Therapies. The exercises got me to assess the emotions and feelings that I have not been able to let out before. As I tap into these deep-seated emotions, I get to address issues in the past that I haven't had the chance to before

[Testimonial] Overcoming Infidelity in Marriage

Being humans, we are never perfect, and we are either too arrogant or ignorant to realise our blind spots. Seeking the help from a marriage counsellor, helped us discover those blind spots and find a way to fix them together as a couple. This episode is probably the most painful and important lesson that me and my husband have learnt in our lives.
