Why take this course
Even the most severe phobic and post-traumatic stress (PTSD) symptoms can be successfully addressed using the version of the Rewind Technique you will learn on this 2-day course.
It’s easy to learn – under the careful guidance of our expert tutor – and an essential therapeutic technique to have in your ‘toolkit’. The rewind technique is one of the most important skills you need to be able to work successfully with any anxiety disorder or condition which may have developed as a result of unresolved trauma.
Using the rewind technique you can, often surprisingly rapidly, detraumatise bad memories, stop flashbacks and other PTSD symptoms, cure phobias, banish nightmares and reduce anxiety so you can help the victims of abuse, rape, violence, car accidents, fire, terrorism and panic attacks, heart attacks and other life-threatening experiences.
Another big benefit of this technique is that it is non-intrusive – there is no need for individuals to repeatedly revisit or recount specific details of the events that have traumatised them. This helps avoid embedding the trauma further and making the situation worse – as can sometimes inadvertently happen in other therapeutic approaches.
It is also invaluable when working with people who have suffered persistent physical or sexual abuse, and people with OCD. People suffering from other conditions, such as depression, addictions or uncontrollable anger, may have experienced a traumatic event, which needs to be successfully de-traumatised in order for them to move on with their lives.
