Brainspotting (BSP) is a unique, gentle technique based on cutting edge neuroscience to address trauma. BSP is very similar to EMDR in that it addresses the physical manifestations of trauma in the brain and accelerates the healing process. Brainspotting is valuable because it accelerates healing and can release traumatic memory without the client having to "re-live" the memory and risk re-traumatization.
Brainspotting is deep, direct, and powerful, yet more contained than other modalities. It is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment in which we use bilateral sound and eye positioning to neurobiologically locate, focus, process, and release traumatic experiences from the brain. Through BSP we can locate and release trauma in areas of the brain not normally accessed through the conscious mind and language. It is theorized that Brainspotting taps into the body's innate, self-scanning, and healing capacities. Consequently, Brainspotting can result in physical healing and pain reduction as well as providing freedom from emotional suffering.
