Brainspotting is a therapeutic approach that taps into the brain’s natural ability to heal from trauma, emotional pain, and other psychological issues. Developed by Dr. David Grand in 2003, it combines elements of mindfulness, body awareness, and eye movement techniques to access and process deep-seated emotions and memories. Each Brainspotting session is unique and tailored to the individual client’s needs. Typically, the therapist will begin by establishing a safe and comfortable environment and then guide the client through a series of eye positions while encouraging them to notice any physical sensations, emotions, or memories that arise. Brainspotting offers a powerful and effective way to access and process deep-seated emotions and trauma. By harnessing the brain’s natural healing abilities, it can help individuals find relief from a wide range of psychological issues and achieve greater emotional well-being.


How does brainspotting work?

During a Brainspotting session, the therapist guides the client’s attention to specific eye positions, known as “brainspots,” which correspond to areas of stored trauma or emotional activation in the brain. By focusing on these spots, the client can access and process unresolved emotions and experiences in a safe and supportive environment.

What sets Brainspotting apart from other therapies?

Unlike traditional talk therapy, Brainspotting bypasses the need for extensive verbal communication and instead relies on the body’s natural responses to access and release stored trauma. This makes it particularly effective for clients who struggle to articulate their feelings or who have experienced trauma that is difficult to verbalize.

Who can benefit from Brainspotting?

Brainspotting can be beneficial for individuals of all ages who are dealing with a wide range of issues, including trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, stress, and performance anxiety. It has also been used successfully to enhance creativity, performance, and personal growth.

How long does Brainspotting therapy take?

The length of Brainspotting therapy varies depending on the individual and the nature of their issues. Some clients may experience significant relief after just a few sessions, while others may require ongoing treatment to achieve their therapeutic goals. Your therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your specific needs and timeline.

Is Brainspotting safe?

Yes, Brainspotting is considered to be a safe and non-invasive therapeutic approach. However, it’s important to work with a qualified therapist who has been trained in Brainspotting techniques to ensure that you receive the best possible care.
