What is Brainspotting?
Brainspotting is a powerful treatment method, which works by identifying, processing and releasing sources of emotional or physical pain, trauma, issues around feeling “stuck” and a variety of other challenges. Sometimes brainspotting is enhanced with Biolateral sound, making the approach deep, precise, and powerful yet focused and controlled.
Brainspotting serves as a “neurobiological” tool, which facilitates the therapeutic relationship. There is no replacement for a well-trained and attuned therapeutic alliance of a clinician who has the ability to witness another human’s suffering. Everyone deserves the safety of a trusting relationship where they can feel heard, accepted, and understood.
Brainspotting provides a one-of-a-kind tool to “neurobiologically locate, focus, process, and release experiences and symptoms that are typically out of reach of the conscious mind and its cognitive and language capacity”. It taps into the deep brain while accessing the body and allowing for the individual to connect to the autonomic and limbic systems within the central nervous system. Due to the unique nature of brainspotting it is a physiological tool, which has significant psychosomatic and emotional benefits.
