What is trauma
Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event such as sexual assault, domestic violence, death of a loved one, car accident, acts of war, bullying and natural disasters.
The event causes the individual to become overwhelmed and they may find themselves unable to cope, feel helpless and diminishes the ability to feel the full range of emotions.
Common Symptoms of Trauma
- sleep problems
- stomach problems
- changes to appetite
Other disorders may include:
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- Dissociative disorders
- Substance abuse
PTSD can develop immediately after experiencing a traumatic event or it can occur weeks, months or years later.
It is estimated that it affects 1 in every 3 people who have experienced trauma.
Someone with PTSD will often relive the traumatic event through flashbacks and nightmares. They may have trouble sleeping and find it difficult to concentrate. They may be hyper-vigilant and have an exaggerated startle response. They may also avoid certain places or situations that remind them of the incident.
Situations such as bullying, domestic violence, stalking, long term care of a relative, debt and grief can all lead to PTSD. Emergency workers and war veterans who are exposed to traumatic scenes as part of their jobs are also at risk of PTSD.
how we can help
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 per cent on their original ratings.
A four-year study carried out within NOVA (part of the Barnardo’s charity) showed similarly impressive results:
Study size: 47 people, 57% of whom treated with Rewind alone.
- 26 would have met the criteria for PTSD.
- After treatment none of the forty-seven 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 which 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.
