The Revolutionary New Therapy for Rapid and Effective Change
Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field to access unprocessed disturbances in the subcortical brain.
Since Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D., over 13,000 therapists have been trained in BSP, in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa.
While working with high performance athletes, Dr. Grand discovered that:
“Where you look affects how you feel.”
Unlike talk therapies, BSP addresses preverbal and unconscious patterning through brain activity, particularly in the subcortical brain.
BSP allows the non-thinking parts of the brain and body to reorganize around eye positions that correlate with emotional upsets, inner conflicts, confusion, disorganization, disorientation, chaos, rigidity, repetitive behaviors, feeling stuck and a host of other uncomfortable and undesirable side effects of unresolved experiences.
During BSP, bilateral music keeps the client in a parasympathetic state so that processing remains within the client’s window of tolerance.
“BSP resolves inner difficulties at the core.”
Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of the practitioner with the client, finding a somatic cue and extinguishing it by down-regulating the amygdala. It isn’t just PNS (Parasympathetic Nervous System) activation that is facilitated, it is homeostasis.
