" 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 the 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 issues and concerns. Since that first training, I have worked toward bettering my experiences as a practitioner and attended further training, consultation and eventually will be 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.
