Brainspotting was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, PhD. https://brainspotting.pro/ Where we look determines how we feel, and how we feel also determines where we look. Brainspotting uses the attunement of the therapist to the client to access those parts in the sub-cortex and mid-brain that are impacted by trauma or negative life experiences. “Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of the therapist with the patient, 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”
