"We don't have to do all of it alone. We were never meant to."
― Brené Brown
Brainspotting is a relatively new form of treatment that taps into the body’s innate ability to heal in order to reduce and eliminate the impact of unresolved trauma, negative beliefs, and emotional distress. It accomplishes this by using a unique and powerful combination of specific eye positioning and bilateral auditory stimulation. Developed by Dr. David Grand just over a decade ago, Brainspotting is based upon the idea that what’s going on inside our brain is directly related to where we focus our eyes.
I am trained as a Brainspotting practitioner, although it is not something that I use with all of my clients. I view it as another tool available to aid in the healing process and discuss with my individual clients ahead of time if I think it could be helpful for them. I have included some videos below that explains what Brainspotting is, who it works with and why people have found it as an effective form of treatment.
