It is an exciting time with recent developments in the understanding of the relationships between attachment, neurobiology and trauma.

Specialists including Bessel van der Kolk, Daniel Siegel, Alan Schore, Peter Levine and David Grand have contributed immensely to the evolving theory and the new indications towards treatment in psychotherapy, psychology, psychiatry and other healing modalities.

Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered and developed from 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. Now over 16,000 therapists have been trained in Brainspotting in the US, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Brainspotting provides therapists with powerful tools which enable their patients to quickly and effectively focus and process through many emotional, somatic and performance problems.

Brainspotting is a brain-body therapy treatment method that works by identifying and then processing brainspots. This uses the natural phenomenon of relevant eye positions to allow the therapist to locate, focus, process and release a wide range of the client’s emotional conditions. This process is believed to be operating a deeper sub-cortical level in the brain. Through the dual attunement model, the interpersonal relationship is central in processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of challenging symptoms.

Brainspotting can be used with people across the age range and with a wide-range of presentations. It is a therapeutic tool that can be integrated into many healing modalities. Brainspotting is used effectively to process (complex) trauma and other disturbances, strengthen resources, and to enhance high performance/creativity.
