Brainspotting is a powerful trauma healing modality that helps individuals to find and release deep rooted trauma. The therapist helps to locate points in the client’s vision that connect directly to the area in the brain that stores unprocessed trauma. The creator of Brainspotting, David Grand, realized that where we look stimulates the brain in different ways. Where we look actually impacts how we feel. Certain points in our vision are the gateway to connecting to our deeply stored trauma.
Through this process, the therapist’s attunement with the client creates a safe and nurturing environment that helps the client to feel emotionally held through this profoundly healing process.
