Whatever you’ve been through, we offer a safe space to talk about your worries and challenges with experienced, trauma-informed therapists who are trained to listen.
We know how important it is that you work with someone you can trust and feel safe with, to start your therapy journey.
At Your Wellbeing, we offer the Rewind Technique, which is used to alleviate post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, including flashbacks and traumatic memory triggers.
With trauma therapy, our counsellor will work with you to build relational safety through a compassionate therapeutic relationship. This will include using trauma-informed theory to help regulate your distressed nervous system.
The Rewind Technique differs from other current trauma therapies because you don’t reveal details of your trauma to your therapist. This approach is also sometimes known as ‘closure without disclosure’.
The Rewind Technique
The Rewind Technique, or Rewind Therapy, is also known as a visual-kinaesthetic dissociation technique. This means that you can review and revisit past events in a controlled and detached way. And you’ll expose yourself to memories without connecting to the emotional and mental impact they create.
It is a relatively quick therapy approach, often requiring no more than 3 treatment sessions.
The main benefit of non-disclosure therapy means there is a much lower risk of you being re-traumatised, as you won’t have to relive your trauma.
Other benefits include:
not having to disclose sensitive information (for example, deployment details, in the case of someone in the armed forces)
not having to disclose intimate details of the event to a stranger (for example, in the case of rape and sexual abuse survivors)
no lengthy therapy program (and, therefore, financial commitment)
the therapist not being exposed to the client’s trauma
How can the Rewind Technique help?
The Rewind Technique can help reduce, or in some cases remove, the following PTSD symptoms:
intrusive thoughts or images
intense distress at real or symbolic reminders of the trauma
physical sensations, such as pain, sweating, nausea, or trembling
Other benefits reported include:
a boost in confidence
being able to talk about the trauma without difficulty or becoming triggered
a more positive mood and reduction in fear
