What is Brainspotting

Brainspotting (BSP) is a transformative therapy treatment, that focuses on identifying, processing, and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional or body pain, trauma, dissociation, and a variety of challenging symptoms.

Founded and developed from 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D, over 25,000 therapists now have completed training worldwide.

Brainspotting is different from other psychotherapies and healing modalities in a variety of ways. It strategically utilises enhanced relational attunement and the client’s visual field to access their brain’s self-scanning and self-healing capabilities.

Brainspotting therapy training will give you advanced Brainspotting techniques, trauma resolution training, therapy grounded in the latest neurobiological developments, and Brainspotting techniques for emotional regulation using focussed mindfulness.

Do you feel that despite your energy, dedication and best intentions, something was restricting the potential that could be unlocked in your clients, supervisees, or your students?

Brainspotting is highly developed relational and technical approach, with philosophical and physiological underpinnings. It is an open, inclusive, integrative, model that invites the therapist to make use of their prior study, experience, and practice wisdom. It is designed to be adapted into other clinical approach and therapeutic style.

The goal of Brainspotting to access and harness the body’s natural self-scanning self-healing ability. Brainspotting emphasises the importance of present awareness in the enhanced therapeutic relationship to process issues and parts that are looking to heal.

Testimonials from Our Trained Brainspotting Therapist

Victoria Cumberlege

Transformational Therapist specialising in anxiety, depression, Complex-PTSD

Hampshire

“Brainspotting training has enabled me to help so many clients with differing issues. It is a truly fantastic tool to have in your toolbox! The training is extremely thorough, and you are ready to work with clients immediately. I am a Narcissistic Abuse Specialist and work with many people who have experienced a lot of trauma and who suffer from C-PTSD. I also work with people who have anxiety. Brainspotting enables me to really start the healing process, freeing clients of trapped emotions and helping them start to process their traumas etc. It is an integral part of the therapy that I undertake, and I absolutely love this modality!”

Kerry McWilliams

Therapeutic Coach, Brainspotting Therapist & EFT Master practitioner

Northern Ireland

“Brainspotting training involves much more than cognitive skills and knowledge: The experience of training with Mark has been deeply healing on a personal level and has transformed my professional practice in ways I could never have foreseen. The opportunity to practice skills and live demonstration allowed me to feel confident to begin to use the technique with clients immediately, and I haven't looked back!”

“The training was very helpful. It was well structured, full of helpful content that was easy to follow and had a good mix of teaching with plenty of opportunities to practise. Mark created lots of space for both practical and ‘geeky’ questions! In fact, the course was so good that I have already recommended it to at least 10 of my colleagues!”

Sarah Bashford

Registered Psychotherapist specializing in anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD and trauma

East Sussex

“I have been working as a UKCP registered psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer for over 35 years. My experience has often involved dealing with trauma including first responder work. In 2020 I trained in BrainSpotting with Dr Mark Grixti which has since transformed the way I work with most of my clients. It has changed my views about talking therapies and accessing inner processes without the need for a lot of dialogue. In order to reach this conclusion and as part of my training, I have also received BrainSpotting as a client and have found the work to be invaluable. Mark and his team are highly trained, experienced, and caring.”

“What an inspiring course! From the first meditation, through theory training, live sessions and then time trying out the techniques, the course was held with sensitivity and compassion. It was such a positive learning space - and I'm so pleased to use Brainspotting to help my clients heal.”

“Without a doubt, the best training I’ve ever done. It’s thought-provoking, engaging and informative. I’ve been a therapist for years, but this training has lifted my skills to another level which benefits both me and my clients. I’m loving my Brainspotting journey.”

Philip Carr

South Yorkshire

“The Brainspotting training was so rewarding and exciting, I learned to trust the healing power of the human brain and it helped me to develop a new layer of presence that is so essential in trauma work. Sharing these experiences with others and getting in lots of practice, really developed my confidence.”

Clare Dash

Trauma-informed Therapist and Visual Artist

Kent

“Before I began learning about Brainspotting, I felt entrenched in the medical model, I was trying to free myself from the constraints of linear thinking about therapy. I no longer wanted to fit my clients into neat diagnostic boxes. Four Brainspotting trainings and supervision with BSPUK have liberated me into wholeheartedly trusting my clients. I have a framework to deeply attune, to be with uncertainty and constant evidence of the healing process of Brainspotting. I was not expecting the fulfilment from this radical change nor was I expecting my own healing.”

Dawn Plimmer

Trauma Informed Positive Psychology Coach, Somatic practices Stress Anxiety and PTSD

East Sussex

“I am thrilled to share my experience with the course I attended. It was an absolutely transformative journey that has had a profound impact on both my personal and professional life. Since completing the course, I have incorporated Brainspotting into my therapeutic practice, and the results have been astounding. The facilitators were incredibly knowledgeable, compassionate, and dedicated to creating a safe space for learning and growth. wholeheartedly recommend the course to anyone interested in expanding their therapeutic skills or seeking personal healing.”
