Brainspotting is a treatment method, and derivative of EMDR, that works by identifying, processing, and releasing neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation, and a variety of other challenging symptoms. It is enhanced with biolateral sound. During brainspotting, therapists help people position their eyes to target negative emotion.
What can it do?
