Rewind Trauma Therapy

Rewind therapy is an internationally recognised technique for treating symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder.  It can provide closure, without disclosure.  This means that you do not need to provide me with a narrative of the events you have experienced.  This can be really important for trauma survivors.  Sharing the trauma can feel at best painful, and at worst, impossible.  And the sharing, can itself be retraumatising.

With rewind therapy, I will not ask you the details of your trauma.

I am a certified Rewind Therapy practitioner, and trained with the IARTT (International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy).  The training is approved by the British Psychological Society


Rewind Therapy Non Disclosure Benefits:

  • The technique reduces the risk of retraumatising the client.
  • Individuals working in specific sectors, eg medics, and police, do not have to worry about disclosing highly sensitive or confidential information.  Confidentiality is not a barrier to treatment.
  • For survivors of sexual or domestic violence, or childhood abuse, there is no need to share intensely painful details, which often have strong emotions attached.


More about Rewind Therapy:

Rewind therapy practitioners use this treatment for PTSD in Prisons, NHS services, Charities and Mental Health Services.  It has been used to treat survivors of genocide, through group treatment.  It is also a recognised treatment for war veterans experiencing PTSD.    There are currently randomised controlled trials underway to support a move for Rewind Therapy to be included in the NICE guidelines for PTSD.  The technique is easily learned, and is an appropriate transcultural approach.  It differs from other imaginal exposure therapies, in that no disclosures are needed from the client.  Hence rewind therapy is commonly known as the "closure without disclosure treatment".  It has an 85-90% success rate for treating PTSD symptoms.

Rewind therapy has also been demonstrated to effectively reduce symptoms associated with extreme anxiety and phobias.


How long does treatment for PTSD symptoms take?

Single incident traumas usually require no more than two sessions.  Traumas which involve multiple events, can be treated in two different ways, depending on how the symptoms are presenting.  Each event can be treated individually, or can be grouped together.
