Life-changing! A great weight has been lifted off my shoulders.Nurse (Previously traumatised by a car accident)
Before attending this course you must complete our Guided Imagery and Visualisation workshop. This is to ensure that you have the necessary skills for practising the rewind technique safely and effectively. You would also find it useful to attend the Therapeutic Power of Language workshop beforehand if you can. All 3 workshops count towards Part 1 of the HG Diploma.
Why take this course
Even the most severe phobic and post-traumatic stress (PTSD) symptoms can be successfully removed using the version of the Rewind Technique you will learn on this 2-day course.
Easy to learn – under the careful guidance of an expert tutor – this is one of the most important skills you need to be able to work successfully with any anxiety disorder and an essential therapeutic technique to have in your ‘toolkit’.
Using the rewind technique you can, in often as little as one or two sessions, detraumatise bad memories, stop flashbacks and other PTSD symptoms, cure phobias, banish nightmares and reduce anxiety so you can help the victims of abuse, rape, violence, car accidents, fire, terrorism and panic attacks, heart attacks and other life-threatening experiences.
It is also invaluable for helping people who have suffered persistent physical or sexual abuse, and people with OCD. People suffering from other conditions, such as depression, addictions or uncontrollable anger, may have experienced a traumatic event, which needs to be successfully detraumatised in order for them to move on with their lives.
A huge benefit of this technique is that it is non-intrusive – there is no need for individuals to go into the specific details of the events that have traumatised them. This helps avoid embedding the trauma further and also helps protect therapists and counsellors from being indirectly traumatised themselves.
Those who have done this course have already brought relief to thousands of people. (case history)

Good to know
This is a powerful technique, which needs to be implemented with care – we recommend you learn it in person with a skilled and highly experienced tutor who can guide you through the important steps involved, oversee you as you practice them and give you crucial direct feedback. (It is not a good idea to learn or practice the rewind technique using a pre-written script.)
Who is this course suitable for?
Anyone working with distressed, phobic or traumatised people, who has already taken our Guided Imagery and Visualisation workshop (and ideally the Therapeutic Power of Language workshop too) as these skills are essential components of the rewind technique.
If you help traumatised people (including children) or people suffering from any form of phobia or anxiety disorder – this includes: psychotherapists, counsellors, mental health nurses, OTs, health visitors, social workers, psychiatrists, GPs, clinical psychologists, midwives, welfare officers, youth workers, hypnotherapists and those working with traumatised members of public services, such as: firefighters, police, paramedics and military personnel – you will find the rewind technique and associated skills hugely helpful.
This intense 2-day training proceeds through a blend of talks, live demonstrations, skill-developing exercises, practice sessions (under careful guidance) and deconstruction of filmed examples of the technique being used, including one with a severely traumatised young woman. There is also plenty of opportunity for networking and discussion during the breaks.
This technique should be more widely known and much more readily available to people. It could relieve so much unnecessary suffering, let alone save the NHS money.General Practitioner
