It is good to read of this, as from my therapits viewpoint, I have always known it. I use a trance technique called Rewind to clear trauma and it “works” 90% of the time. and I use it somewhere or another in the majority of my clients. nd rather than waste time with diagnoses you realise that how people cope or not cope with past trauma explains so much. And that if you can clear the trauma then you are well on the way to recovery. Incidentally trauma needs to be defined broadly to include not just one off experiences but extended periods and so on. I can’t imagine how therapists heal mentally distressed clients without have an effective means to detraumatize. Maybe it is like a doctor not able to use antibiotics.
