Brainspotting

“Where you look affects how you feel. ” - David Grand, PhD

WHAT IT IS

Brainspotting (BSP) is a tool Stillpoint uses in therapy to help you heal from traumatic experiences. We believe for healing to occur, the brain, mind and body must be integrated. BSP supports your brain and body's natural ability to scan and heal itself. Using a brain spot allows you to integrate the neural pathways, or information highways, of the brain along with the emotional and physical experiences that are triggered when certain topics or issues are engaged.

WHEN BSP IS USED

Trauma occurs when you are overwhelmed by something outside of your control. Trauma damages neural pathways in your brain and leaves behind trauma capsules that interrupt your ability to function.

BSP allows us to use your visual field to access the damaged neural pathways. By processing through the physical, emotional, and mental stuckness, we can release the trauma capsules in the subconscious part of your brain.

UNDERSTANDING OUR BRAIN

BSP is a physiological approach that can impact mental, physical and emotional processing in a healing way. To understand how BSP can help, together, we need to understand the basics of how the brain functions.

BSP WITH KIDS AND TEENS

At Stillpoint, we recognize how overwhelming and activating school, relationships, mental and emotional struggles, and even their age and stage of development can create significant issues for the individual and their family.

Within the brainspotting community, there are two professionals, Rev. Dr. Martha Jacobi and Mag. Monika Baumann, who developed an international training on using BSP with kids and teens. To learn more about Martha and Moni, check out their website (below link). In the fall of 2019, Jenna Corcoran completed this training and has been using brainspotting with kids, teens and members of their family unit to support their growth and healing. If you are wondering how this process works and want to learn more please contact us!
