What is the Rewind Technique?

Let me guide you through this method to move towards a calm and confident birth

andWhat is the Rewind technique?

The way I will help you work past these feelings of birth trauma and fear is through a simple but effective technique called the Rewind Technique.

It has its roots in neuro-linguistic programming and uses the methodology of guided relaxation to enable you to eliminate your unwanted emotions and replace them with something much nicer.

It is a 3-step technique that goes through a process of:

    1. REFLECTION – reflect on the past memory (either by sharing your story or just talking about key unwanted emotions) in order to identify the key emotions that are unwanted and looking at the emotions that you would prefer to have.
    2. REWIND – going through the Rewind process through a guided relaxation in a way that enables you to feel at a safe distance from your memory and feelings.
    3. REFRAME THE FUTURE – establishing the positive things that will replace the unwanted feelings. 

How does it work?

As a practitioner of this technique, I will guide you in this process but it is not hypnosis or therapy and doesn’t change or alter your memory in any way.

Rather we enable our brain to re-process the memory and to detach the strong emotions that have been attached to the memory so that it can be stored in our memory banks in a neutral way – just like all our other memories.

What to expect?

The technique is be conducted over or 2 or 3 sessions that last between 60-90 minutes depending on your needs and goals. It can be done in a safe and familiar place or somewhere more neutral if you prefer.

Each session will start with some reflection about what the goals are for the process, and then we will move into a guided relaxation that lasts between 20-45 minutes depending on which session and what is being covered.

We wrap up with a short reflection on the relaxation.

How much does it cost?

As the sessions are tailored to your requirements, I offer a package that covers all sessions and any follow-ups or extra support required. We have 3 sessions of between 60-90 minutes and we can add additional sessions if needed.

How do I know if it will work for me?

Every person is unique and their thoughts and emotions are unique.

Rewind works best with if you have a strong unwanted emotion that is created and caused by a specific event or experience, that is having a negative impact on your present life. It can also be highly effective even if you can’t attribute the emotion clearly to an event or memory.

Why not get in touch and book a free Rewind assessment call with me and we can discuss your specific situation. Please note you do not have to share tour story with me if you don’t want to, Rewind can be practised without sharing anything at all.

I had an amazing rewind session with Eleanor, I was feeling very stuck on some negative feelings about a past job.

The rewind session really helped me to distance myself from these feelings and it was almost as if my brain was rewired.

I no longer have strong emotions about that issue and felt I could let it go and move on with my life.
