Imagine yourself as a local GP, with a busy practice and only having ten minutes with each patient. And for the next week you could not prescribe antibiotics. Not at all! I imagine that it would be devastating for the GP. A great deal of confidence would drain away, as you would know that a vital means of quickly helping many of your patients would no longer be available. Like going naked into the conference room?
Well, if you told me that over the next week I could not use my normal trance methods and in particular could not use the Rewind method to clear trauma – meaning the emotion around powerful memories from their past, I would be similarly drained.
I clear trauma in around 75% of cases
Because I want to let you into a little secret – it is that around 75% of the clients I see, whether it for help with depression, anxieties of all kinds, addictions, diagnoses of personality disorder and so on or just having issues that need dealing with, will require me to clear trauma of some kind lurking somewhere in their past.
And so the knowledge that I can use Rewind to clear trauma (or traumas) and that Rewind “works” nearly every time – well I think that is pretty amazing. OK I am experienced with Rewind now and can deal with ab-reactions and complications and also if my client does not have a very good visual memory. But knowing that this tool is there if I need it and that it will play a part in the recovery of up to three quarters of my clients (and I would guess for other Human Givens practitioners too) – well, that is an enormous comfort.
This leads me onto another point that links directly with how Human Givens sees mental illness. It is that most mental problems arise from a coping strategy that does not work. For example, we know that excessive and unproductive worrying will lead into depression. So imagine what it would be to live with trauma memories – with emotions, nightmares and avoidance etc. that arise without any means of control. It is clear that that could so easily unravel to makes one’s life even worse.
It would be enough to make you “mentally ill”
It also makes you wonder how therapists who purport to help with the mental problems of their clients manage to do so in the absence of any means to detraumatise – which of course is the situation for most counsellors, Cognitive Behavioural Therapists and psychiatrists. Probably like doctors before the discovery of antibiotics – i.e not very well.
Suffering from trauma – then do contact me.
