Brainspotting is a recently discovered, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releasing emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation, and a variety of other difficult symptoms that are currently dealt with on a daily basis. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, adding Biolateral sound (created by David Grand, Ph.D.), which is deep, direct, and powerful yet focused and containing.
Brainspotting functions as a neurobiological tool to aid in the recovery of the individual as well as healing the mind-body connection. There is no replacement for a mature, nurturing therapeutic presence and the ability to help another suffering human in a therapeutic alliance where they feel heard, accepted, and validated.
Brainspotting gives us a tool, within this therapeutic alliance, to locate, focus, process, and release experiences and symptoms that are beyond the bounds of talk therapy that can be reached in a possibly faster method.
Brainspotting works with the deep brain and the body through its direct access to the autonomic and limbic systems within the body’s central nervous system. Brainspotting is accordingly a physiological tool/treatment which has profound psychological, emotional, and physical consequences. [excerpts from brainspotting.com]
