Brainspotting (BSP) is relatively newer type of psychological treatment developed to help people with stress, anxiety and trauma. In many people, standard talking therapies are not effective, perhaps because their logical and emotional brains are overwhelmed by the stress and trauma. In brainspotting, the target is the survival (‘subcortical’) brain, with the use of focused mindfulness and specific eye movements. This allows painful, distressing memories to be processed so that they are no longer distressing, allowing people to heal from past traumatic experiences.
