What is Brainspotting?

Developed by Dr. David Grand in 2003, brainspotting is based on the premise that where we look affects how we feel. Brainspotting is a powerful form of therapy that taps into the brain's natural ability to heal itself. Unlike traditional talk therapy, brainspotting bypasses the cognitive mind and accesses the deeper layers of the brain where unresolved trauma and emotional pain are stored.

How Does Brainspotting Work?

During a brainspotting session, the therapist helps you identify specific "brainspots" in your field of vision that correlate with unresolved issues or traumas. These spots are linked to activated emotional and physiological responses in the body.

 

By focusing on these brainspots while accessing your internal experiences, the therapist guides you through a process of releasing trapped emotions and integrating past traumas.
