Brainspotting - A New Approach to Trauma
Brainspotting is discovered by Dr. David Grand in 2003. Brainspotting is a powerful, personal, & focused method that assists to identify, process, & release core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, & blocks that may be hindering a person’s daily function. The method also allows to bring in calm, enhance intuition, and expand the synaptic brain connections. With Brainspotting, it is possible to emerge into new states of being & consciousness.
Brainspotting utilizes the visual system to find relevant eye positions which are seen as access points to locate the necessary information to be released or focused upon.
During a session, a client is guided to hone in on a brainspot through the ocular to the subcortex. The areas deep in the brain that hold the maladaptive brain connections. Based on the idea that “where you look affects how you feel,” Brainspotting can release unconscious beliefs about yourself that may be holding you back.
As a Psychotherapist trained in Brainspotting, I am finding my clients are healing in ways I have not been able to provide in past sessions.
