What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting (BSP) is a neurobiological tool used to locate, target, process, and release experiences and symptoms held in your brain and body.  David Grand (2013)

Who can it help?

BSP can be used with children, adolescents, and adults.  BSP is an adaptable brain-body therapy that can help with most issues, including but not limited to trauma, addictions, depression & anxiety and sports performance.

How does it work and

how can it help?

BSP uses the visual and auditory fields to access the deeper sub-cortical brain to help you process and release unresolved issues, psychologically and physiologically.  It allows you to detach from memories and experiences, symptoms and conditions.  Watch the video to the right for further explanation.
