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- You are exhausted, cycle between angry eruptions and withdrawn depression.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?
Let me treat your PTSD or phobia comfortably and quickly.
The Rewind Technique is a tried-and-tested approach to treating PTSD and phobias.
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.
Research results for the Rewind Technique
Although research into the Rewind Technique is still in its infancy, one study carried out by the Human Givens Institute in the UK showed the following results:
Study size: 30 people
- 40% of clients rated rewind as extremely successful.
- 53% rated it as successful
- 7% rated it as acceptable
No one rated the Rewind Technique poor or as a failure.
- Prior to rewind, on average clients rated their well-being as 12 out of 50.
- Seven to 10 days after treatment, the average score was 30.3 out of 50.
- Three to six months later, the average score was 32.2
This represents an improvement of 167.4% on their original ratings.
A four-year study carried out within NOVA (Part of Barnardo’s charity) showed similarly impressive results:
Study size: 47 people, 57% of home treated with Rewind alone.
- 26 would have met the criteria for PTSD.
- After treatment, none of the 47 people treated met the criteria for PTSD.
- There was also a significant reduction of all sub symptoms associated with PTSD, five categories had zero reports after treatment.

Rewind does not need you to go over the traumatic incident(s) again
Many people with trauma or phobias have been treated using approaches that 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.
If you suffer from PTSD or phobias, I think I can help, so please give me a call at 604.727.6608 and I can answer any questions you may have, or book you in for a consultation.
