Brainspotting

The New Brain-Based Therapy for Rapid and Effective Change

Brainspotting (BSP) is a powerful focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms.

BSP makes use of the natural phenomenon of where you look affects how you feel through its use of relevant eye positions. Together the therapist and client pair a fixed eye position and body sensation to an unresolved issue. This rapid, highly effective mind/body centered therapy technique appears to go beyond the cognitive awareness and connects one to their body’s innate wisdom to heal.

 

What if I don’t have trauma?

We all have experienced trauma in some capacity, whether it b e from distressing events, adverse childhood events, adverse childhood experiences, unmet emotional needs, or abuse and neglect.

 

Could it help me?

BSP is a therapeutic tool for everyone with a variety of issues. If you are new to therapy and are looking for a way to change patterns of behavior, BSP can help resolve the emotional and physical pain that keeps you stuck in those patterns. If you have been in therapy before, but have the sense that your work could go deeper, BSP can take therapy to another level of healing. If you are uncomfortable with talking about your past traumatic experiences, this modality will enable you to heal without having to tell or retell your story. Lastly, BSP can be used to enhance performance, creativity, and create regulation in your brain and body.
