Brainspotting is an approach to trauma therapy that combines neuroscience, mindfulness, and somatic release. The client and therapist are guided by the higher intelligence of the mid-brain and limbic system to locate where trauma is stored. We do this by assessing automatic reflexes in the eyes, and then creating a mind body connection. Your eyes are connected to the part of your brain that stores trauma. When we discuss activated issues, we can trace eye movements to locate and release trauma in the body, emotions, and brain.
" 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. Over 13,000 therapists have been trained in BSP (52 internationally), in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa. 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. " - BRAINSPOTTING.COM
