“BSP is a 21st Century, relational, highly attuned therapy, which is one of the increasing number of brain-based therapies, that go beyond the mind, to gain direct access to the subcortical brain…… Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. “David Grand is one of the most important and effective psychological trauma therapists now practicing, and his development of Brainspotting is a very important leap forward in helping people resolve trauma…” – Dr Norman Doidge
Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of the [practitioner] with the [client], finding a somatic cue and extinguishing it by down-regulating the amygdala. It isn’t just PNS (Parasympathetic Nervous System) activation that is facilitated, it is homeostasis. — Robert Scaer, MD, “The Trauma Spectrum”
