Traumatic Incident Reduction is a simple technique which has proven to be effective in addressing, reducing and/or resolving most of the symptoms of 'Post Traumatic Stress Disorder' (PTSD) and other unwanted after-effects of trauma. TIR involves re-experiencing past traumas in a completely safe environment

When something happens that is emotionally painful, one has basically two options - either confronting it fully and feeling the pain, or trying in some way to block one's awareness of it. Blocking is a self-protective impulse but only 'works' to a certain extent. Unexamined, unresolved past events more likely tie up one's energy and intention. Traumatic Incident Reduction provides a safe space and the means to fully examine that which had been blocked and the past incident loses its ability to hurt one. 

  • Basic 'Traumatic Incident Reduction'(TIR) is used to address incidents we knows have happened to us:- a car accident, the painful end of a relationship, a medical procedure, the loss of a loved one etc.  Work on a past incident until all the force, pain and resistance is gone and an end point is reached.
  • Thematic 'Traumatic Incident Reduction'(TIR) Sometimes unwanted feelings, emotions, sensations, attitudes or pains are experienced without necessarily being aware of what incidents underlie them. Thematic TIR addresses these unwanted feelings, using the common theme or feeling to trace down through a number of incidents until the force and resistance is reduced from all of them and an end point occurs.
