What is Brainspotting Therapy?

Brainspotting is a new form of therapy that aims to help clients process difficult emotions or traumatic experiences. In brainspotting different eye positions are used to help identify “brainspots” linked to certain experiences, emotions, or sources of distress. Once identified brainspotting therapists use mindfulness techniques to help the client access experiences and process through the thoughts and feelings stored in this brainspot.

Researchers don’t fully understand exactly why or how brainspotting can help people heal from trauma quickly, but they do have some theories. The developer of brainspotting believes that eye position and movement correlate to certain places or ‘spots’ in the brain that store traumatic memories. “Where you look affects how you feel.” Each person’s brainspot may be different, so the therapist needs to first identify the spot by using a set of eye movement exercises with each client. The goal is to help people access, process, and overcome trauma, negative emotions, and pain. This is done by bypassing the brain's conscious thinking, which is addressed in talk therapy. It is often used to treat conditions like trauma, depression, anxiety, attachment issues, mood disorders, and addiction.
