What Is Brainspotting?
Coaching is awesome for accountability, goal setting, goal achievement, recognizing and developing our strengths and being challenged to do the work to be great. Coaching is also helpful for gentle offering a different perspective and troubleshooting. There are times it is hard to accept and implement the things listed above when we have crippling Imposter Syndrome, anxiety, fear, self doubt, low self esteem, and low self confidence, to name a few. Brainspotting can help you to process those things so that they aren't barriers or challenges to your self-work and growth.
Discovered by Dr. David Grand Ph.D,
Brainspotting is a brain and body based
modality that accesses the part
of the brain that involves complex activities such
as memory, emotions, and pleasure.
This part of the brain is called
the subcortical brain.
By accessing this part of the brain,
brainspotting regulates the nervous system by
creating a state of stability.
Traditional coaching accesses the neocortex,
the part of the brain where cognition
and language is stored.
This part of the brain is already well developed.
However, our subcortical brain houses
the things that still need to be
sorted out such as doubts, fears, concerns, past
memories, emotions, and trauma.
Brainspotting is a great tool for
processing and releasing
symptoms that our conscious minds
cannot access through
cognition and language (the neocortex).
For this reason, Brainspotting
goes much deeper and faster
than traditional coaching.
Brainspotting is based on the idea
that "where you look
determines how you feel."
A typical session involves using a
pointer to find an eye position
to tap into what a person wants to work
on while listening to bilateral music
that creates balance between the right
and left hemispheres of the brain.
Brainspotting is a great tool to use to process, feelings of inadequacy, doubt, comparison,
emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation,
sports performance, processing decisions,
expanding the ability to tap into your
brain and body's own natural,
ability to regulate and more.
We know through neuroscience that
each of our pupils hold thousands of
So when we are using a modality
that works with the eyes we are
literally working in the brain.
No two Brainspotting sessions look the same.
During a session people can
experience a variety
of things including physical sensations,
emotions, memories, tiredness/sleepiness,
greater energy, and more. Through processing the brain
begins to heal itself. The result is being less impacted by the things that are holding us back.
The greatest part of Brainspotting
is as you process those complex traumas, feelings,
sensations and emotions, you are held and
wholly supported by your
Coach in every moment.
