⭐ I have recently trained with @traumatic_birth_recovery in the TBR 3 step rewind technique aimed to help alleviate the symptoms of perinatal trauma. This technique incorporates relaxation and visualisation techniques. The aim of this technique is to allow you to remember the event without the strong emotions which may be currently attached to it.
⭐ Events which bring about feelings of trauma may include:
❗ miscarriage, birth trauma (either physical or emotional), baby loss, poor postnatal care or breastfeeding trauma.
❗ The traumatic event or period will have taken place in the past (preferably more than 8 weeks ago) but you will still be suffering from symptoms. These symptoms will be affecting you by causing distress and difficulties in carrying out daily activities and routines.
Some examples of symptoms (this is not a finite list):
❗ Unwanted recurrent memories/nightmares/flashbacks
❗ Avoidance of anything relating to the event
❗ Negative mood or strong negative emotions relating to the event
❗ Feeling irritable/anxiety/feeling numb
!! Prior to the event you were enjoying good emotional and mental health and wellbeing (this is an important one)
⭐ The TBR 3 step rewind will take place over 3 sessions:
Session 1 (90 minutes) - talking through your story, should you wish to tell it, understanding how it is affecting you daily, solution focused questioning and relaxation. People often feel a sense of relief after this first session through the solution focused questioning as it will allow you to imagine what your future self may be like. This relaxation will be recorded to listen to between sessions. This will help to condition a relaxation response.
Session 2 (60 minutes) will take place roughly one week later - I will explain the TBR 3 Step rewind technique before we do it.
Session 3 (30 minutes) roughly 10 days - 2 weeks later - Follow up to discuss positive changes and you will be given the opportunity to repeat the positive relaxation together
❗ For these sessions to be successful, you must be free from interruption so please make sure if you have children that they are not home during your sessions
