Ruth Netherwood (MBACP Reg.) Counselling & Psychotherapy & REWIND Trauma Therapy
Prospect House Clinic
177 Bradford Road
About Our Work Together
I specialise in trauma, anxiety, depression, bereavement and relationships and am a qualified practitioner of the REWIND technique for trauma and PTSD. (www.iartt.com).
We will work professionally and creatively with whatever you need to focus on. You will have the space to just talk about what is on your mind, explore what this means to you and resolve, gently.
Every person and experience in your life will have an impact on you and you will respond and react in ways which may no longer work, but are normal. Distressing thoughts, feelings and sensations may change, may linger or may lay hidden away. Our work together will unravel and witness which is which to clear the way for change.
We will identify patterns and themes in your experiences, recognise triggers and explore their meaning to you.
My approach is integrative, using various ways to suit you, including relaxation, body awareness, healthy coping strategies and relationship development.
Perhaps you want to cry but don't know why
or can't because you don't know how
or shouldn't, because you were told it was wrong
and never did, because you had to be strong
and mustn't, because it is all your fault.
It's not your fault.
REWIND TRAUMA THERAPY 'Closure without Disclosure'.
The REWIND is a non invasive, fast treatment for PTSD, Trauma and Phobias. My training was at Birmingham University with its founder Dr David Muss of the International Association of Rewind Trauma Therapy www.iartt.com
(RT) was first introduced into the literature of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by Dr.David Muss (founder of this association) back in 1991; ** "A new technique for treating Posttraumatic Stress Disorder". British Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1991, 30,91-92. 19 policeman with PTSD were treated with the Rewind and followed for two years. All reported being well, returned to work and there wasn't a single relapse.
The Rewind is different from other imaginal exposure therapies because no details are disclosed to the therapist. Hence the treatment is known as "closure without disclosure"
The benefits of non disclosure include:
Minimizing the risk of the client being re-traumatized.
There is no fear of disclosing sensitive information e.g. In the case of servicemen, for example, about deployment.
For survivors of rape and sexual abuse the benefit of not having to disclose details of the event to a stranger is self-evident
Minimizing the risk to the counsellor of developing compassion fatigue, particularly for those therapists involved with heavy workloads.
The Rewind offers a way of permanently stopping the involuntary recall by filing the traumatic event so it comes under control..Voluntary recall remains.
What differs is the focus on the relationship between the two of you and how to take that relationship forwards, in equality and with a joint purpose. No bias or siding with one or the other exists. Both of you, as individuals, have a right to be heard and as a couple, a right to find stability without oppression, blame, fault or hurt.
Confidence building is at the core of my work with young people. Empowering healthy control and communication, concentration and social interaction, for a happier experience whether at school, home or with peer groups.
About me. I am a qualified practitioner of the REWIND therapy technique for trauma and PTSD. Also Bereavement Counsellor at Sue Ryder Hospice and Relate trained couples counsellor and provider of EAP counselling.
'The REWIND completely transformed mine and my family's life. I cannot begin to explain how I could begin again. Thank you'.
'For me a key part to enable me to address the negative and self destructive thought patterns, has been to just be in a safe relationship with another person, to understand the reasons and to really demonstrate to myself that I love and accept myself'.
'I blamed my husband all these years. I now see why and how we can build a better future together, in our own family, on our own terms'.
'Since the first REWIND session I am no longer on medication for sex as the memories don't enter my brain during the activity.'
'Ruth I’d just like to say thanks for all that you’ve done for me. I found you very professional, welcoming and approachable which made me very comfortable during our sessions, which is ultimately why I think I had such a positive experience. I’d not hesitate to recommend you to others'.
