What is Rewind Trauma Therapy?

Rewind Trauma Therapy is a way of treating the symptoms of PTSD.  

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:

  • Minimising the risk of being re-traumatised.   

  • 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

The Rewind offers a way of permanently stopping the involuntary recall by filing the traumatic event so it comes under control. Voluntary recall remains.


For single event traumas, two to three sessions at most are required.

For multiple event traumas, such as: combat, sexual abuse; domestic violence; etc. each traumatic event can be dealt with separately over separate sessions but, depending on the way the involuntary recall represents, can also be dealt with in one session.
