Brainspotting therapy is a relatively new therapeutic approach developed by David Grand in 2003, which focuses on accessing and processing deep-seated emotional and physiological experiences stored in the brain.

Unlike traditional talk therapies, Brainspotting uses the client's visual field and bodily sensations to identify and target specific "brainspots" where trauma or distress is held. These spots are identified as eye positions that correlate with the activation of trauma or emotional processing in the brain. The therapist helps the client maintain focused attention on these brainspots while exploring associated thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations. This process aims to access and release stored trauma, reduce emotional and physical distress, and promote healing and integration.

Brainspotting is particularly noted for its ability to reach areas of the brain and nervous system that are not easily accessed by conventional talk therapy, making it effective for treating trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and other psychological challenges.
