Rewind trauma therapy

Experiencing very stressful or traumatic events can leave us feeling distressed, overwhelmed, anxious and helpless long after any threat or danger has passed. Traumatic experiences leave an imprint in the memory which persists in the present and you may be struggling with depression or experiencing flashbacks that leave you feeling confused and out of control. Alternatively, you may feel numb, disconnected from your emotions and unable to feel safe again. You may be avoiding situations, people or specific places or you may feel as if you are constantly on guard and losing interest in activities which you once enjoyed. People often come to therapy because they want to move beyond surviving, but sometimes we need a helping hand to help us heal. It is possible to move beyond difficult experiences and to build a path of recovery.


Things can change. You can heal and move on.

The Rewind Therapy (RT) or ‘Rewind Technique’, was founded and developed by Dr David Muss in 1991. It has become internationally recognised as indispensable to treat traumatic memories and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is suitable for clients with PTSD, flashbacks, anxiety and unwanted or intrusive thoughts. The traumatic event has not become a memory under your control. The memory of the trauma becomes involuntary and so is re-lived over and over again. The Rewind offers a way of permanently stopping the involuntary recall by filing the traumatic event so it comes under control. Current research indicates successful treatment and positive outcomes for clients in 85% of cases and results are usually rapid. It can also be of help with many phobias. 

I am a professionally trained practitioner of the Rewind Technique and work closely with emergency services, charities and war veterans. The technique usually requires no more than two to three sessions to bring about closure for single traumas. The results are enduring - a follow up of two years showed no relapses in that period of time, and it works with any trauma such as abuse, bullying or PTSD which results in unwanted thoughts and flashbacks. It works well for both survivors and onlookers, which makes it an ideal treatment for veterans and emergency services personnel such as fireman, police and ambulance.
