Rewind Technique (for PTSD)

The Rewind Technique is originally an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) technique, which was further developed by Dr David Muss as a non-invasive and highly successful treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful, frightening or distressing events. Someone with PTSD often relives the traumatic event through nightmares and involuntary flashbacks, and may experience feelings of isolation, irritability and guilt.

It is known as the Rewind Technique, because it requires the client to rewind the traumatic event in their mind’s eye. It is thought that the process enables the pre-frontal cortex to re-categorise the traumatic memory as non-threatening, so the pattern-match which causes the anxiety and panic no longer gets triggered. The technique does not delete the memory of the event, rather it ‘files’ it away and creates a ‘key’ which allows the client to voluntarily access the memory at will.

What is hugely beneficial about this technique, is that it does not require the client to communicate any of the details of the traumatic event to the practitioner. This is why the Rewind Technique is often described as being safer and less intrusive than other trauma therapies.

Treatment consists of an initial assessment to gauge your suitability for the Rewind Technique, then the therapy itself usually takes half an hour. A follow-up appointment is necessary two weeks later in order to assess whether treatment has been successful. If the treatment is successful, then results are usually noticed immediately. It is important to note that no therapy can claim to have a 100% success rate, however, the Rewind Technique is the “only treatment – available and demonstrated – that has achieved an 85% success rate after a single group session.”

Susy was trained by Dr. David Muss in 2016, and has facilitated successful and life-changing results for her clients with this technique. She is also a certified Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

The cost of treatment and follow up assessment is £180.

What people say…

“I went to Susy with PTSD and an eating disorder. I found her to be extremely personable yet professional and as a result of her work my life has turned around. The Rewind Technique seemed daunting but with Susy’s guidance after one attempt it was completely effective. I am extremely grateful to her and would recommend her services to anyone.”
“I contacted Susy after witnessing a near miss accident on the motorway, this triggered clearly unresolved issues about an 8 vehicle accident I had had a year before. I could not drive on specific parts of motorways and had to give up my job. I was extremely concerned that my level of anxiety would lead me to stop driving completely. I was also highly anxious,  unable to sleep, and re-lived the accident in flashbacks constantly. Life was becoming extremely difficult and my world was retreating inwards. Susy held a rewind therapy session with me. Going in I was sceptical, however, within an hour of leaving I felt enormous relief. It was like a weight was lifted. My anxiety around driving left me completely within a week. The flashbacks went immediately and my body, after so much anxiety and adrenalin for so long, started to repair. I can not thank her enough. I don’t know how rewind works….but I am testament that it does. Thank you Susie… you reopened my life again.”
