Brainspotting Training UK

Please note that due to Covid-19, all 2021 BSPUK trainings will now be online. Trainings cover both traditional in-person, as well as online Brainspotting Therapy. See below for more details.

Brainspotting (BSP) is a powerful, focused treatment method that identifies, processes and releases core neurophysiological sources of emotional or body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of challenging symptoms. Discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D, over 20,000 therapists now have completed training worldwide.

Why become a Brainspotting Therapist?

Complimenting your prior training and approaches to therapy, Brainspotting can take you and your clients to another level. Brainspotting liberates the therapist from restrictions which too often compromise the all-important relational attunement. The interpersonal dynamic is the key to working with brainspots, a powerful tool in identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional or body pain.

Although BSPUK is established and based in the UK, our Brainspotting trainings are global and we are delighted to have a rich and diverse international community. Mark has taught in a number of countries and we welcome all those that wish to train with us and be part of the ever expanding international Brainspotting community. With increased online provision we are very excited to extend the opportunity to meet and connect with you without any geographical restrictions.

Train in Brainspotting Online in 2021

If you’re looking to train in Brainspotting (BSP) this year we have good news. The forthcoming Phase 1 and 2 Brainspotting Trainings will take place online, plus the June 2021 Phase 2 training is currently available in person in London as well as online. Brainspotting is both an in person and effective online therapeutic modality/psychotherapy and these trainings will incorporate not only the key principles of Brainspotting but also experiential embodied practice of working with others online using BSP techniques and the core principles of dual attunement.

With the recent developments of social distancing, as therapists we will be, or have already, moved to working with clients online. This is can be a new experience and and unfamiliar way of working for many of us. The trainings have been designed to acknowledge this and support you in delivering quality online therapy to our clients.

In light of the current conditions we are offering 25% off Phase 1 in March 2021. For those of you who have already completed a Phase 2 training we are offering a 50% discount for the forthcoming Phase 2 in June. In light of the current situation the training will have additional focus on the resource model and working with clients online, as well as covering all the latest theory and techniques of a Phase 2 training. We hope that some of you can join us. It’s an opportunity to come together as a community and continue with the momentum of our work in challenging times.

Brainspotting has enabled me to do some extraordinarily deep work. Very powerful, simple, quiet and gentle. I’ve been deeply touched by what I’ve experienced.”

“It’s been a real privilege to have been able to join. It feels like the team has a very warm open relaxed connection and I feel really sort of carried along the way. Thank you so much. This method is awesome and the resonance and warmth of heart just jumps straight from the screen”
