Brainspotting

“Where you look affects how you feel”.

Dr. David Grand

Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. Dr. Grand discovered that “Where you look affects how you feel.” It is the brain activity, especially in the subcortical brain that organizes itself around that eye position.

I have been trained in Brainspotting during the pandemic and I have found it to be an incredible intervention for my clients suffering from Trauma, but also for general anxiety and depression. It’s a moderately new way to access a part of the brain that is difficult to reach in traditional talk therapy.
