Brainspotting Consultation: 

So you completed Phase 1 and you're wondering how to apply Brainspotting in your current practice.  In individual consultation you will develop your brainspotting knowledge and accrue hours toward certification  Check the Brainspotting International website for certification criteria and use this form to enroll in consultation. 

Brainspotting Supportive Practice:  Many new Brainspotters freeze up because they feel overwhelmed by trying to keep in mind everything they learned (hold the pointer like this, not this.  Which set up do I use? Was that a reflex?  I think I forgot a step.  Oh no—I drifted! I’m not in the tail of the comet.  WAIT. WAIT. WAIT. How long do I wait? ).  You and your client will experience more success if we simplify things.  Let’s focus on one goal, of your choice, for 1 session, and then let’s see what your client gets from that experience.  Contact me to learn when the next practice group will for.

About your consultant:

Caroline Artley was a Brainspotting skeptic at first.  After completing Phase 1, she followed the advice of trainers and experienced brainspotting clinicians who encouraged her to trust the inherent wisdom of her clients' brains and stay in the tail of the comet.  What resulted was a conversion of sorts into becoming a Brainspotting Believer, snowballing into a desire to jump into any brainspotting webinar and training she could and to share brainspotting with just about everyone she encountered.  As an approved consultant, she is excited to journey with you into curiosity and uncertainty as you discover the breadth of healing that dual attunement, eye position, and focused mindfulness can bring to your clients and yourself.  Whether you are starting out feeling unsure of what you're learning or experiencing in training, or you are already hungry for more and eager to use Brainspotting whenever possible (like she is!), Caroline will be honored to be part of your growth.

Caroline Artley studied Phase 1 with Sue Pinco, Phase 2 with Cynthia Schwartzburg, Phase 3 with David Grand, mini-Master Class with David Grand and received certification consultation and CIT training with Deb Antinori.  Once the pandemic brought trainings online, she was honored to assist with several phase 1 and 2 virtual trainings.  This provided the opportunity to re-learn the material from various trainers, observing their technique and brainspotting style, and adopting various concepts and practices from each.  Caroline attends as many specialty trainings and brown bag webinars in brainspotting as she possibly can, and proudly serves on the High Acuity Care training team. She believes in the collective power of learning in community which is why she hosts group case consultation and allows a discount to the group for individual certification consultees.
