What is Brainspotting?

Home » Treatment Therapies » Brainspotting

Brainspotting is a newer method of therapy developed by David Grand where trained therapists use “brainspots” to activate specific memories that might carry trauma or emotional pain.

During a session of Brainspotting, your therapist uses a pointer to guide your eyes around your field of vision, stopping in spots that might allow your brain to connect to traumatic memories or incidents that bring emotional distress. These connections allow you and your therapist to work more fully through these incidents or memories.

Brainspotting is relatively flexible, meaning your therapist can adapt the experience to your individual needs.

Since it is a relatively newer form of therapy, there isn’t much literature supporting the ability for therapeutic change through Brainspotting. Although, some studies show it can affect Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other forms of trauma.
