Rewind Technique

Of a wide number of strategies that can be chosen to resolve anxiety and worry, one of the most remarkable is the ‘Rewind Technique’.

This is a simple and effective way of disconnecting the fearful feeling of an overwhelmingly experience from the memory of the event.

It draws on the brains ability to ‘mix and match’ its way of remembering things. In so doing the experience is moved from the part of the brain it is stuck in (Limbic) to the part it can be safely filed away (upper brain function).

The result is that a past bad experience is no longer recalled with the unpleasant feeling when the memory is triggered.

This technique is also invaluable for rehearsing a future challenge.
