What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting (BSP) is a new psychological treatment approach which considers the field of vision and position of the eyes to correlate with inner neural and emotional experience. 

BSP is essentially an open, intuitive and inclusive way of working which encourages therapist and client to make use of their inner knowledge and practical wisdom.


What is Brainspotting?

BSP utilizes psychotherapy, focused activation and focused mindfulness as its mechanisms of operation.

Brainspotting (BSP) has its origins in Eye Movement Desensitization and can lead to profound resolution of issues, which could be held deeply in the non-verbal and non-cognitive aspects of the
brain.

What happens in a session?

Eye positions are located in the therapy session and are held with a mindful gaze.

In order to determine these eye positions, the client is guided to be in a state of “focused activation” which is usually in response to activation of underlying problems. The process aims at a full, comprehensive discharge of activation held in the brain and body. Often bilateral sounds are also used alongside the mindful way of looking with the eyes.
