What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting (BSP) uses a somatic mind/body approach to access memories, traumas, and disorganized associations stored deep within the brain and body. Based off of Dr. Grand’s philosophy of “Where you look affects how you feel”, BSP is an effective approach that taps into the brain and body’s self-healing capabilities.

How it Works?

BSP locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain, and enables the client to reorganize unprocessed trauma and memories in a meaningful way. BSP is a non-invasive approach that uses a pointer to locate an eye position (or brainspot) where the emotion, connected to the distressing memory, is most felt in the body. Once the brainspot is located, the therapist will hold that position and the client processes the memories and traumas.
