Brainspotting (BSP)

Brainspotting: Healing Trauma Through the Mind's Eye

If you previously participated in therapy and did not see results you were looking for, it is important to know the field of counseling is always advancing. One new form of therapy is called brainspotting or BSP. BSP is designed to help people work through experiences of trauma. At the core of BSP is a belief that the direction a person looks or gazes will affect the way they feel. BSP believes the therapist can help people position their eyes in certain ways that will allow them to directly target any sources of negative emotion for a cathartic expression of that emotion. BSP believes a person's eye movements and the direction they look will play a big part in determining their mood. Essentially, where you look affects your feelings. The term brainspot is used to represent the correlation between eye position and the part of the brain that holds some negative memory.
