Brainspotting

Brain…what?

Brainspotting is a fairly new but powerful technique in which a pointer is used to find eye positions (or “Brainspots”) that connect with and activate a traumatic memory or strong emotion. Practitioners of this technique believe it allows access to emotions on a deeper level and target the physical effects of trauma.

What is Brainspotting effective for?

  • Trauma
  • Emotional and somatic conditions
  • Artists – unblocking creativity, overcoming stage fright and performance expansion
  • Athletes – enhancing performance

How is this different from regular counseling?

Talk therapy engages our conscious, thinking brain. The goal of Brainspotting is to bypass conscious thinking to access the deeper, subcortical emotional and body-based parts of the brain. Typically there is less talking in a Brainspotting session and more focussing on what’s going on in your body.
