What is Brainspotting?
Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. Over 13,000 therapists have been trained in BSP (52 internationally), in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa.
Dr. Grand discovered that “Where you look affects how you feel.”
Brainspotting (Bsp) is designed as a therapeutic tool that integrates well into other healing modalities. Bsp is even more powerful when combined with bi-lateral sound, that is method I use.
Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. It is the brain activity, especially in the subcortical brain that organizes itself around that eye position, along with bilateral sound that processes and integrates stuck unprocessed trauma. That natural phenomena of relevant eye position helps the bps therapist locate, focus, process, and release a wide range of emotional and body based conditions. Bsp is also a brain based tool to support deeper subcortical therapy. Bsp believes that it taps into and harnesses the body’s natural self-scanning self-healing ability.
When a brain spot is stimulated the deep brain appears to reflexively signal the therapist that the source of the problem has been found. This enables the therapist to work cooperatively with clients at their pace to locate and integrate unprocessed information that would free up space in the brain for processing needed to excel in the present moment. It also helps calm the nervous system to be less reactive and more peaceful.
Increasing resiliency and increasing natural resources is a great way to end a session on a positive note.
Clients share that this method organically clears stuck thoughts, feelings, emotions from the deeper mind in a gentle non-evasive way that leaves them feeling lighter, clearer and with more positive resources.
