WHAT IS Brain Spotting?

Brain Spotting

What would it feel like to experience or remember a traumatic event such as the abuse you endured from a narcissist but to no longer be ruled by the emotion of it?

Unresolved trauma such as narcissistic abuse can leave you feeling drained, exhausted, or in a hyper-vigilant state as you stay in the trauma responses of fight, flight, or freeze. This releases the stress hormone, cortisol, which negatively impacts mood, memory, sleep, focus, digestion, and your immune system. Unlike traditional talk therapy, Brainspotting Therapy bypasses the thinking brain (neocortex) and accesses the reactive brain (subcortex), allowing you to resolve trauma responses in a comfortable, controlled setting.

Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered by David Grand, Ph.D. in 2003. Dr. Grand believes that where people look affects how they feel. He realized that people can access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain where brain activity organises itself around their eye position.

This process of bilateral stimulation down-regulates the amygdala (our fear centre) because the eye position accesses somatic capsules in the subcortical brain where this trapped trauma is stuck. Brainspotting Therapy reveals, disrupts, and releases negative thoughts associated with memories and changes them to positive ones. BSP therapy includes somatic work, neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, and the polyvagal theory.

During treatment, you will be guided to look in a certain direction, guided by a pointer. Together, we will find the spots that are triggering a response in your body.

If a particular spot activates a negative memory, we will have found a brain spot, where trauma is stored. Working together in a safe and attuned environment using bio lateral music, the trauma can then be processed effectively. The past can’t be changed but your continued emotional reaction can be brought back into regulation within your everyday life.

Brainspotting is an effective treatment for anyone suffering with the following:

  • PTSD/Complex PTSD
  • Trauma
  • Flashbacks – Recurring traumatic memories that interrupt your life
  • Relationship Problems and Wounds such as narcissistic abuse
  • Being Stuck in Grief and Loss
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Crippled by Fears and Phobias
  • Fear of Flying
  • Performance Anxiety and Overcoming Blocks
  • Stress, Panic, and Anxiety
  • Sexual Trauma and Abuse
  • Anger Management
  • Chronic Pain that is not the direct result of a physical injury
  • Addiction and Compulsive Behaviours
  • Negative Self Beliefs and Criticism
  • Depression
  • Nightmares and sleep disorders

Brainspotting is a powerful and deeply transformative therapy and allows for the brains’ natural healing processes to give you the freedom that you want from the triggers that are stopping you living the life you deserve.
