How it works

The Amygdala and Hippocampus in your brain act like a filing system and store all your experiences/memories, attaching emotions to them. This is important in new situations, as your brain searches these files for guidance on how to act and feel. 

When you experience a situation that you perceive as stressful or traumatic, your Amygdala acts like an alarm system, ceasing all other brain processing systems. This is vital for survival and known as the fight or flight response, which triggers extreme emotions. An over-exaggerated and often uncomfortable emotion is then attached to this memory in your brain.

Quite important in the past when faced with a bear or sabre-toothed tiger, not so much now! This is why you are left with unwanted and often extremely uncomfortable, emotions.

It’s important to understand you are in control of the files in your brain and the emotions you have attached to them. Think about the last time someone made you feel sad…. often when you tell someone they made you feel that way, they are apologetic as it was not their intention. The truth is they did not make you feel sad, you chose to experience that sad emotion based on a file you accessed in your brain and an emotion you had previously attached to it.

This is how this course can help you, I will teach you how to change your unwanted emotions and empower you to heal yourself. You can then choose the emotions you would rather feel when accessing memories or experiencing similar events in your future.

The details

My passion is to improve the experiences and outcomes for parents and parents-to-be. NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) advise against one-off sessions for traumatic birth experiences, currently known as debriefing. Debriefing is currently the only tool available in NHS maternity units, for women who have experienced traumatic births. 

The 3 Step Rewind course is a soothing but powerful process, neutralising negative emotions to enable a happier future. All clients to date, have experienced an incredible change of emotions improving their lives.
