Brainspotting is an advanced brain-body-mindfulness-based therapeutic approach, which focuses on the parts of the brain where memory and emotion are stored and the parts of the brain involved with regulation, so you address the emotions and memories impacting you from a part of the brain that can help you feel better and feel more regulated.
Brainspotting helps us go to the source for a much more efficient and powerful experience.
Brainspotting is a powerful tool for therapy to help process traumas, negative cognitions, difficult emotions, and upsetting events by focusing your visual field on a spot that stimulates processing.

“Where you look affects how you feel”
Dr. David Grand
Brainspotting is a remarkable, sophisticated, flexible addition to the therapeutic toolkit of any psychotherapist. I know because I use it regularly, and find that, combined with the psychoanalytic approaches I normally practice, the results are astonishingly helpful.

I have personally experienced the benefit of Brainspotting. Just with one session, I was able to relax the grip of a burdensome perspective and its associated emotions, both of which I had carried for a long time.
Dr. Robert Scaer
Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of the therapist with the patient, finding a somatic cue and extinguishing it by down-regulating the amygdala. It isn’t just PNS (Parasympathetic Nervous System) activation that is facilitated, it is homeostasis.
