I am so glad I have incorporated this technique into my practice
Rewind works so efficiently and effectively. Such a lot of evidence to validate it as an extremely beneficial therapy for trauma. I am so glad I have incorporated this technique into my practice and so pleased for all the clients that have benefited. Kind Regards

Brilliant really!
 The things that is really surprising is how quickly people forget that they had the flashbacks, (almost like a toothache, once it is gone it is forgotten about). In the reviews people only then remember that they haven't been triggered or have thought about it. Brilliant really.
Thanks again David

Rewind zaps in one
I have helped many of my college clients and private clients using Rewind. Many have tried EMDR and had limited success, then Rewind zaps it in one.

I use Rewind between 5-15 times a week ...
I work as a Psychosexual/Trauma therapist using an Integrative model.  I am employed as a therapist and also run a private practice in Bedford. 

I use Rewind between 5-15 times a week
 and have found it very effective with many of my clients, including those suffering with anxiety, panic, sudden deaths, road traffic collisions, and childhood sexual abuse.  Upon completing the training I was initially nervous about putting into practice the new technique and also whether or not it would be effective, from the first client it has been successful.  The only clients who I have felt it did not help them were those unwilling to let go, did not add in the worst parts or did not want to stop being angry.  I have found other ways of working with these clients however they are in the minority. I have used Rewind for single and multiple traumas, working slowly and carefully with each one and have watched people transform from the trauma controlling them into them being in control.

This technique is so life changing
I currently work at Basildon Mind as a volunteer. I attended your training day on the Rewind Technique in November last year. I have used the technique on my eldest daughter whom suffered as a result of my long-term violent relationship with her Father. I was not aware how this trauma had been impacting her life until I met you. It then became apparent that she was suffering from PTSD. The IES was completed and repeated two weeks later to which demonstrated a significant drop. The most interesting part about this rewind was that I appeared in it. My daughter described to me afterwards what I was doing in the rewind and we established that her fear actually came from my fear. We both learned an extreme amount about ourselves in this process and my daughter seems to be cured. She no longer feels angry towards her Father and no longer feels anxious about the event. She can recall the event now and discuss her father in a calm and relaxed way and feels that it is because of the Rewind Technique. It is amazing how this technique is so life changing and I thank you wholeheartedly for coming in to my life when you did. I have also used the technique on a client which showed significant change. I will attach the results of the two rewinds I have completed, as Mary informed me this morning the register is going to closing and I would have liked to have been on the register if at all possible. I have another rewind booked for two weeks time. Please could you let me know your thoughts. Once again David I am eternally grateful and I hope our paths cross again.

Service Evaluation by Independent Psychologist
Purpose
The purpose of this service evaluation was to look at the effectiveness of the Rewind treatment in a Victim Support Counselling Service. 

Method
All the people treated by the Victim Support Counselling Services in a 3/6 month period in 994 were included. The counsellors were newly trained. Each person treated was given the Impact of Events Scale (IES) before and two weeks after treatment. 

Demographics
A total of 18 people were treated during this period. Their age range was 16-50. 
The type of trauma was recorded. There were 6 (33%) rapes, 5 (28%) assaults, 3 (17%) sexual assaults, 2 (11%) robberies, and 2 (11%) child abuse traumas were treated. 
Regarding chronicity, 8 (44%) were acute (less than 6 months), 7 (39%) were 6-24 months post-trauma, and only 3 (17%) were chronic (over 5 years). 

Results
Prior to treatment, all people treated were above the IES cut off of 27 and above. The mean pre-treatment scores was 56.4 (SD = 7.19).
After treatment, the mean post-treatment score was 14.72 (SD = 9.34). The average improvement was 42.67 (SD = 6.60).
Two people (11%) were still above the cut-off of 27 after treatment, but had both still improved by a score of 17, indicating a statistical reliable improvement.

Summary

The Rewind treatment was successful in treating people referred to this Victim Support Counselling Service. The majority of people treated had acute trauma of less than 6 months, and a significant proportion were less than two years since the trauma, indicating that this treatment was effective for acute trauma. The mean pre-treatment IES score was 56.4, indicating severe trauma symptoms were successfully treated. Only 11% were considered to not be successfully treated, but even these two people had statistically reliable improvement. These results indicate that newly trained counsellors can be successful in treating severe trauma using this technique.
Beck charity in awe of results achieved with the Rewind Technique
I am a psychotherapist working mainly with children & young people but I am currently offering free emotional well being assessments & counselling to parents in East Leeds through a local charity (The Beck).  I recently asked Sue Sutton - who trained with you -  to offer Rewind to a client who had experienced a number of severe & traumatic domestic violence incidents. The change for this client is immense and the many professionals  involved with the family are suprised and a little in awe of the technique! The charity is intent on finding funding to continue to offer free counselling to some of the most vulnerable parents in the city. This will be a task in the current climate !! My query is as to whether you would consider offering a training day in Leeds to qualified counsellors/psychotherapists who would then be asked to offer this at low cost to no (or very low) income parents who have experienced trauma. If this would be something you could consider I was wondering how much it would cost the charity - how many participants you would need and what sort of qualifications you would expect participants to have.
Thank you

"Very effective"
Hi David Since the training I have used Rewind almost daily and am due to do a follow up at 9.00 am today.  I have found it to be very effective in my treatment of trauma and have used it here with the police and in private practice.  I think on the IES I had one lady first time at 65 and second down to 8.  She was back in work and functioning something she didn’t think would happen. I am so pleased that I came along and did the training and have talked about it since.

I’m finding Rewind such a very useful tool to have. Thank you so much, David, for your excellent training.

I work with victims of serious crime and I usually offer a session of Rewind. The feedback I have received is all very positive especially in reducing flashbacks and general feelings of anxiety. Some clients have reported that they feel empowered following the session and one said that she felt as if she had been “rebooted”. Caroline Zanussi, zanugem@hotmail.com;

It has been really positive to observe how this client has been able to benefit in a number of ways (psychologically, emotionally and socially), since engaging with this treatment / technique for PTSD. Lisa Walters, lisawalters888@gmail.com

I have also used it on a colleague yesterday
 whose life has been affected by a childhood trauma. He tells me it has made a difference overnight. He is going to attend one of your workshops. Regards Kath Moore, www.kath@kmcounselling.co.uk 


Client was astounded and was really pleased with the effect after 2 weeks. Meryl Hargreaves, kingfishercounselling@yahoo.com 

It is just thrilling. Three weeks on and this client is still sleeping well and has stated that he feels fully in control of his traumatic thoughts, Carol Hosford, carolhosford@yahoo.co.uk

Those who have used this technique have found some of the results amazing. It really is a useful tool to have. Other volunteers lack confidence in using this technique as they feel they would require more training. Best Wishes, Peterborough Rape Crisis

I am priveleged to have this tool in my professional toolbox and continue to be astounded at the effective and efficient resolution of traumatic distress. Frances Masters, frances.masters@btinternet.com 

I have used RT iwith 7 of my clients so far, and there are lots of questions floating in my head!  Most of them found it very easy and helpful right away. One of them did not find it helpful, but then they were not able to detach from the PTSD event to do it properly. I have one who went back to her first sexual trauma at age 3, and another who processed a two week old murder of his best friend. One client has a long history and a series of the same type of abuse having occurred multilpe times over his lifetime, each with traumas associated with it.
