Take The Hero's Journey
This Journey is for professionals who have completed a live or online course in Brainspotting Phase 1. It will be available for a 30 day period for viewing and course completion.
In this brand new Hero’s Journey process, we use the power of Narrative therapy, with a Brainspotting MultiFocal Set Up, to move our client’s (and ourselves) into Post Traumatic Growth. The Hero’s Journey process provides meaning from the adversity the client has been through. It also reframes their addiction (or other issue) in a way that removes shame, and provides a new view of themselves and what skills and qualities they learned/earned, that they can now use moving forward in their lives, and perhaps also to share with others.

Based on the Work of Joseph Campbell
Joseph Campbell was an American professor of literature at Sarah Lawrence College who worked in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work covers many aspects of the human experience. Campbell's best-known work is his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), in which he discusses his theory of the journey of the archetypal hero shared by world mythologies, termed the monomyth.
Since the publication of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell's theories have been applied by a wide variety of modern writers and artists. His philosophy has been summarized by his own often repeated phrase: "Follow your bliss."[ He gained recognition in Hollywood when George Lucas credited Campbell's work as influencing his Star Wars saga.[
Campbell's approach to folklore topics such as myth and his influence on popular culture has been the subject of criticism, including from folklorists, academics in folklore studies.
