Brainspotting (BSP) is an exciting Brain/body based therapy approach developed in 2003 by David Grand.
The therapist's deep relational attunement and neurobiological attunement are at the core of BSP, creating a powerful frame that enhances healing. BSP works on easing emotional and physical lock down by locating, accessing, processing, and releasing neurophysiological sources of pain/trauma held deep in the subcortical brain.
BSP works by identifying a relevant eye position in the client’s field of vision while focusing on an emotionally charged issue. This invites processing from the bottom up and from the inside out. As attention is given to the issue, The source of pain/trauma moves in the direction of discharge and healing.
It really is true...“Where we look affects how we feel”. It is believed that Brainspotting taps into the body’s natural self-scanning, self-healing ability.
Brainspotting can be used with any kind of performance issue such as sports or speaking and it can also be used in behavior changes, addictions and as creativity enhancement.
