Birth Trauma and other postnatal support

Birth Trauma

Are you someone who as a result of your birth expereince, or indeed a partner, who has witnessed an event, that has left you feeling traumatised, unable to let go of strong, adverse emotions that resurface whenever you recall what happened? Or perhaps the first few days and weeks have been difficult to get through, perhaps it was was the feeding experience that led to unhelpful emotions that just won’t go away. Perhaps it occurred some time ago and is still affecting you on a day to day basis? It is normal to react adversely to stress and this can make us feel rubbish but what isn’t normal is when these negative feelings remain.

I studied with Alex Heath, from Traumatic Birth Recovery and offer the TBR 3-step Rewind and as I am now the Assessor for the training, reading and commenting on case-study after case-study, I can absolutely say hand on heart this is a really helpful technique. The aim of the approach, a well-proven NLP technique, is to remove the connection between the memry of the troubling event and the unhelpful emotions that are constantly replayed.

The treatment consists of 3 sessions, the first up to 90 minutes, in which you experience a lovely relaxation which you can then take away and listen to in between. You can share your story if you wish, but it is not essential. You will have the opportunity to explore how you would like to feel in the future. The second session is usually a week later, consisting of the Rewind itself, and again finishing on a positive note,  and the third two weeks after that when we get together to review how you are feeling and you have the opportunity to experience a final positive relaxation / visualisation that will leave you feeling calm, confident and able to respond differently. You will be able to process any traumatic memories in a way that will leave you able to recall them in the future, without feeling the original unhelpful emotional response.

If you have previously enjoyed positive emotional health but are feeling stuck and unable to move on then do get in touch. Please note this is not appropriate for those who were already experiencing/being treated for previous mental and emotional health issues.

Feedback from a recent client says it all:

For the birth, I successfully had the VBAC, and was totally able to keep out my mind the previous experience of panic and worry I’d had. So a massive thank you for your help and advice. It has made me look back on my second delivery in a much better light than if I had not had our sessions. I felt a lot more in control and prepared for what to expect.”                                                                             

The fee for the three sessions £195.00. Some clients may wish to book additional sessions to explore other issues such as anxiety or feelings of depression.
