Brainspotting is a neurobiological technique that can be used to support and enhance the therapeutic process. Basically, Brainspotting helps the brain to process emotion. It aims at a full, comprehensive discharge of activation held in the brain and body.
David Grand, the developer of this therapy, explains: “Brainspotting is a neurobiological therapeutic technique that uses eye positions locate and process physiological subsystems holding emotional experience, including trauma, in memory form. A Brainspot is the eye position which is related to the energetic/emotional activation of a traumatic/emotionally charged issue within the brain. A Brainspot can be accessed and stimulated by holding the client’s eye position while the client is focused on the somatic/sensory experience of the symptom or problem being addressed in the therapy”
