3 Step Rewind in Birth Trauma

Birth trauma can come from one event or a combination of factors that may have taken place during pregnancy, birth or postnatally. This trauma can lead you to feeling unheard, out of control and fearful. The 3 step rewind technique aims to help you by going back to that traumatic event and using deep relaxation to help you move forward from that trauma.

What Support I Offer

The 3-step rewind process was developed from a Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) technique known as the 'fast phobia cure'. This involves a trauma resolution process, which includes debriefing, relaxation, looking into outcomes and how to use use those for the furture in order to make changes and reduce anxiety around the traumatic memory.

3 step rewind can all be done without the practitioner needing to know the clients story in order to achieve the desired outcome.
SESSION 1: Involves the me engaging with you and then you choosing whether or not to talk about your memory. This period helps to build a rapport and trust between you and I. The practitioner aims to help you find a goal and ends the session with a relaxation script.

SESSION 2: This Involves the rewind technique. Again you will be taken through a relaxation script. In addition to this, you will be asked to visualise a large screen, where the you will play your memory forwards and backwards from 3 different perspectives. There is then an opportunity for you to remove that memory from this visulisation.

SESSION 3: The last session looks to see if the rewind technique has had the desired outcome, to which we rescale the symptoms. We can re-run the rewind process again if necessary. If not, a relaxation script is used to strengthen their feeling of a positive and more confident future.

Why It Is Important

Within our maternity system birth trauma has increased. Sometimes a birth can be seen to be perfect but in reality we can't always tell how that individual is feeling. It is important to note that trauma can also be experienced antentally and postnatally. The Birth Trauma Association have written that 25%-34% of birthing people and their partners have considered their birth to have been traumatic- this is massive! The 3 step rewind process aims to helps those individuals find a way to combat and move forward from their traumatic event.
