The Rewind technique
By: Keith Travis
There is a technique I use called the Rewind. It is one of the most valuable things I ever learned.
I have been using it for about 5 years and it is amazingly versatile
I have used it to help with phobias, post traumatic stress disorder, fears, addictions bad habits, confidence
issues and many other problems.
Many times it takes just one session to relieve people of the problem.
I have used it to help people from age 7 to people in their seventies.
I remember a seven year old girl came to see me with her mum because the little girl was terrified of bees
after being stung a couple of times. She even ran off as they arrived at my office, because she thought I may
have some bees.
After the session using the Rewind she went off happy.
The next day, her granny phoned me and told me, that when the girl went home that night she went out into the
garden with her granddad to look for snails. While they were searching, a bee came buzzing by and the little
girl looked up and said “Look granddad a bee “and then she carried on calmly looking for the snails.
Since then she has been stung again by a bee but still does not have a bee phobia like she used to have before
I have also used the rewind to help rape and sexual abuse victims and again it works amazingly well. It is a
very gentle method of relieving trauma because the victim does not have to relive the event as they do in many
other therapies. In fact, I do not even have to know what the trauma memory is to help them.
When we have had a bad experience in our past it is quite often filed away incorrectly in our memories. What
the Rewind does is it re-files the memory away so that it doesn’t have the same response as before.
As an example of how things are filed away incorrectly. Imagine a little boy walking down the path and a dog
runs out and barks at him. This experience makes him jump and frightened. His mind then stores this experience
away. The next time he sees a dog his subconscious reminds him of the frightening experience and he starts to
feel anxious. After a few times like this he starts to avoid dogs or any where there may be a dog and the bad
memory is strengthened. He may then start to feel anxious just looking at a picture of a dog and he develops a
dog phobia. Because the subconscious is always trying to protect us it tells him that all dogs are bad, based
on the first frightening experience. This is what I mean by memories filed away incorrectly.
Another little boy walking along the path and a dog jumped out, may have just laughed at the dog and made a
barking noise back at it. Within a few minutes he would have forgotten the incident.
So if you have a phobia, traumatic memory, something that haunts you and stops you from being who you want to
be, or doing what you want to do, The Rewind technique could help you. If you are not sure, just contact me for
