What is Brainspotting?

" Where you look affects how you feel..."

What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. Since this discovery, 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." It is the brain activity, especially in the subcortical brain that organizes itself around that eye position.

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

Why I chose Brainspotting as a therapeutic tool...

I started my journey of learning Brainspotting thinking I could use a new tool in my toolbox, then I actually attended my first training.  It was a transformative experience for me, both learning it and allowing myself to have the experience of brainspotting in practice, working through some of my own personal history and present day concerns.  Since that first training, I have worked toward bettering my experiences as a practitioner and attended further training, consultation and eventually getting  fully certified. 

I feel passionately about the work that I do with my clients, and rather than just one more tool in my toolbox, brainspotting has given me the opportunity to support my clients in a different way, to follow their lead for what they need and to see positive and permanent change.  Brainspotting is about attunement between body and mind, therapist and client.  I have used brainspotting to help clients explore and process traumatic events, overcome creative blocks, reduce obsessive thoughts, change personal habits and find an expansive goal and so much more. 

I am always learning and exploring how it can benefit my clients, my practice and my personal growth.  I am excited to share and provide any information you might want to know about the process and how it will help you in therapy.
