After spending nearly a year contemplating whether to train in EMDR or Brainspotting, I’ve chosen the later. Already, I’m introducing it in client sessions and find that even newer clients, with whom I don’t have a more familiar rapport, can quickly get comfortable with, and benefit from it. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you are curious to try even a single session.
From the Brainspotting website: Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. Over 13,001 therapists have been trained in BSP (52 internationally), in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa. Dr. Grand discovered that “Where you look affects how you feel.” It is the brain activity, especially in the subcortical brain that organizes itself around that eye position.
