Trauma

What is trauma?

Life is going along normally for you and then something happens that shifts the way you see life, the way you think or the way you feel. A trauma does not need to be the result of her horrific abuse, a plane crash or an earthquake it can be something simple that shifts the direction of your life.

Trauma can also be the result of an abusive situation, a frightening incident, a car accident or any other unexpected event. It might have happened recently or happened a long time ago when you were little.

When an incident happens at a time when you are highly emotionally charged it is like your brain takes a photograph of that moment in time and becomes stuck there emotionally. Even though time has passed from the event it might feel like it just happened yesterday. The emotions connected to it that come up are intense.

  •  You may find that your sleep is interrupted.
  •  Your dreams are scary.
  •  You are exhausted, cycle between angry eruptions and withdrawn depression.
  •  Your relationships suffer.
  •  Your world shrinks.

You may compensate for these feelings with distracting behaviours like eating too much, drinking too much, medicating too much, shopping too much etc.

Let me help you resolve this comfortably and quickly.

 

Do you suffer from PTSD or a phobia?

For many years severe anxiety based conditions like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and phobias were considered treatable only with long, drawn out, uncomfortable exposure therapy, and in some cases they were considered not treatable at all.

Now we have effective options with mind/body work such as the Rewind Technique. I use this method to provide a comfortable, effective treatment that can greatly reduce and even remove traumatic or phobic symptoms quickly.

Research results for the Rewind Technique:

The research into the Rewind Technique is still in its infancy. One study carried out by the Human Givens institutes in the UK show the following results:

  • 40% of clients rated rewind is extremely successful.
  • 53% rated it as successful.
  • 7% rated it as acceptable.

(Study size, 30 people)

No one rated the rewind technique poor or as a failure.

Prior to Rewind, average clients rated their well-being as 12 out of 50. 7. 10 days after treatment, the average score was 30.3 out of 50, and 3 to 6 months later, the average score was 32.2.  This represents an improvement of 167.4% on their original rating.

A four-year study carried out with Novi showed similarly impressive results:

Study size: 47 people, 57% of whom were treated with rewind alone.

  •  26 would’ve met the criteria for PTSD
  •  After treatment none of the 47 people treated met the criteria for PTSD.

(Human Givens journal Volume 14, No 4-2007)

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 techniques that I use and I do not in fact even need to know the details of what happened to you.

 So if you suffer from PTSD or phobias I would love to help you. Please give me a call at 604.727.6608 for any more information, or to book an appointment.
