TRAUMATIC INCIDENT REDUCTION
The majority of, if not all, presenting issues that lead individuals to seek counselling have traumatic underpinnings (whether the client is aware of them or not). Common concerns include, but are not limited to:
history of physical, sexual, emotional abuse
post-traumatic stress disorder
obsessive compulsive disorder
unwanted persistent feelings, emotions, sensations, or pains (FESAPs)
challenging or unfulfilled relationships
These are just a few of the many personal struggles that Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) can help with. TIR is a highly effective technique in which the therapist (facilitator) guides the client (viewer) through a series of questions until the client arrives at his/her own conclusions/resolution.
What makes TIR different from other modalities/techniques?
Unlike other traditional therapeutic modalities, TIR goes beyond offering clients coping strategies to help "manage" their symptoms, and instead provides resolution & relief which allow individuals to truly "let go" of their suffering.
TIR is highly directive, yet non-interpretive and non-evaluative.
TIR is 100% person-centered & client-driven.
TIR sessions have no fixed length, the sessions end when the client reaches an appropriate "end point". This ensures that the client is not left in a triggered state.
TIR uses repetition as a powerful tool to reduce emotional charge once it has been located.
