Many types of therapy exist for trauma patients. One of the techniques we feature, if the client desires, is a new model called Brainspotting. It is the latest off-shoot of E.M.D.R., which is well known for it's success in healing trauma.
What is Brainspotting?
Brainspotting, as described by it’s founder, David Grand, Ph.D.:
“Where we look affects how we feel”. BSP makes use of this natural phenomenon through its use of relevant eye positions. This helps the BSP therapist to locate, focus, process and release a wide range of emotionally and bodily-based conditions. BSP is also a brain-based tool to support the therapy relationship. We believe that BSP taps into and harnesses the body’s natural self-scanning, self-healing ability. When a Brainspot is stimulated, the deep brain appears to reflexively signal the therapist that the source of the problem has been found. BSP can also be used to find and strengthen our natural resources and resilience.”
