What is Brainspotting

The revolutionary new therapy for rapid and effective transformation

Brainspotting was developed by David Grand in 2003, a renowned therapist based in New York.

The only part of our brain that is external to us are our eyes. So in brainspotting we use eye positions to work and access deep processes. Where we consciously look as we work with an issue, lets our brain-body system know what we are working with.

Our computer (brain) can then go off and bring all the associations in the subcortical, emotional, auditory and body-based parts of the brain, linked to the issue up and start processing it.

Our brain makes associations when overwhelmed and under stress, these associations may not always be helpful to us. Through Brainspotting, we give our system the space to process and make healthier associations, which are helpful.

We are no longer hijacked when faced with similar situations and decisions, we become more flexible and can access new information as well as create healthier associations.

We gain freedom and expand into new possibilities.

The Brain-body system always wants to heal, and perform optimally. We can use Brainspotting for Trauma, Limiting Beliefs, Money Blocks, Creation of Resources as well as to expand possibilities. 

Sometimes the Brain-Body system gets stuck, or the conditions aren't optimal, and needs the time, space and conditions to complete its healing and expand. Brainspotting allows that. It is a deeply honouring process of the individuals specific internal system and growth journey,

It is used to bring clarity, wholeness, new possibilities into the clients frame.

We can also use it to enhance performance (at work, in sports, business or in life), creativity, resources, connect to a future you as you create your projects, and work through the blocks which are in the way of achieving that.

We also use it for transgenerational trauma and accessing wisdom.

Below are some videos: What is a Brainspot by David Grand. And a video by me for a course I did (I look a bit orange!) which talks to a little of the science and the different areas we can use it in.
