The Rewind Technique

Let me treat your PTSD, trauma or phobia comfortably and quickly

The Rewind Technique is a tried-and-tested approach to treating
PTSD Phobias and Trauma

For many years, severe anxiety-based conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder or phobias were considered treatable only through long, painful exposure therapy, and in some cases, not at all. Now, thankfully, we have access to a comfortable, effective treatment that can greatly reduce, and even remove, traumatic or phobic symptoms quickly. Rewind does not need you to go over the traumatic incident(s) again. Many people with trauma or phobias have been treated using approaches which drag them back through the experience again; a highly unpleasant thing to have to do.

This does not happen with the Rewind, and I do not in fact even need to know the details of what happened to you, for it to work.

Treating Trauma and Abuse

The Rewind is effective in the treatment of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. These traumatic experiences can affect every area of your life, including self esteem, self worth, and the ability to forge trusting and intimate relationships, with yourself and others. Abuse can lead to feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, isolation, depression and addictions. With the Rewind, once the memories are released, there is no longer the emotional hook keeping the memories ‘current and alive.’

How your memories are made

When you are living a relatively stress-free life, every day memories are filed as instantaneous impressions in the brain, and then organized in a logical way in the hippocampus, and ultimately stored in the neo-cortex in ‘long term memory’. This procedure makes a remembered event nothing more than a story, something that you look back at and it feels like it is very much in the past, there is no uncomfortable emotional attachment, no nightmares, flashbacks or sensory triggers.

However, when people are traumatized this process can get blocked, and the traumatic memory may never get turned into a past story. The memory has been relegated to the ‘fight or flight’ part of the brain, the amygdala, instead of the hippocampus. It stays lodged in this part of the brain as a survival mechanism, ready to spring into action if a related situation should arise. That is why you can feel on hyper-alert, constantly anxious, unsafe, tense and afraid. It may feel like you can never relax and let go, as your body responds to the constant stress of existing in this ‘fight or flight’ state of being. The past trauma can feel like it occurred yesterday or last week, as all your most awful memories feel as if they are still happening now.

So if you suffer from PTSD, trauma or phobias I think I can help, so please give me a call and I can tell you anything else you need to know.
