ABOUT TRAUMATIC INCIDENT REDUCTION 

AND 

LIFE STRESS REDUCTION

Both Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) and Life Stress Reduction (LSR) are person centred methods of reducing the effects of Trauma, and Life Stress. Some psychologists refer to it as debriefing.

 

Unlike traditional counselling where you are allocated a 1 hour session, which may only last 50 minutes, TIR and LSR gives you all the time you need.  I have run sessions that have lasted as short a time as 30 minutes, or as long as over 3 hours.

 

I have resolved a wide range of cases that traditional counselling had not.

 

During a session we will view and you will describe any traumatic incident or event and I will help you process this until the event or incident has little or no effect on you.  A good way to describe this, is to keep putting a match to some spilled petrol. Every time you do this there is a flash, once there is no fuel left there is nothing to burn.

 

When was the last time you talked about something that troubles you, answering specific questions without interuption or any type of judgement?

 

I was suffering from PTSD and one 5 hour session of TIR, 5 years after I was diagnosed, cured me. Traditional counselling had failed, and my doctor's answer was to try and prescribe anti-depressants.

 

I am trained to offer the same for you.

 

You don't have to do anything in preparation except: 

  • be well fed
  • well hydrated 
  • well rested 
  • preferably drug and alcohol free for 24 hours prior to a session (prescribed medications are acceptable).
  • ensure you have time to complete the session

 

We will spend the first session carrying out an intake interview where we discuss your issues and what is causing you the most distress.

 

I will not judge you or advise you. I will make you feel a lot better about yourself and your problem, no matter how big or small you think it is, to you it is a big problem.


My wish for you is that once you are done with my services that you are not a victim or a survivor, but a renewed and enhanced you.

 

I can come to you or you can visit me, wherever you feel most comfortable.
