Whilst as we as humans would undoubtedly like to live in a world that was free from bad things, and emotional pain, reality dictates that at some point in our lives we are liable to experience something which has the potential to overwhelm our natural coping mechanisms.
We use a highly effective specialism called ‘Traumatic Incident Reduction’ (TIR) to support individuals in crisis or distress.
TIR is a non-clinical system of social-support enabling individuals to explore and process areas of psychological/emotional concern or distress.
TIR is a person centred, one-to-one based approach, during which a Facilitator guides an individual (the ‘Viewer’) to explore and inspect their own mental environment.
Sessions take place in a safe environment, free from interruption, and in comfort.
The aim of the process, is to achieve a resolution and/or a greater sense of well-being for the Viewer, as their distressing event becomes a source of experiential learning and development, rather than one which causes emotional pain.
We commonly refer to this stage of the process, as an ‘End Point’ – the point at which emotional pain associated with an event or situation falls away, and the residual memory simply becomes more factual than ‘traumatic’.
In order to help you achieve this, our TIR facilitators will:
TIR in Focus
TIR is highly effective in elimination the negative effects of past traumatic reactions.
It is especially useful when:
TIR has been in use since 1984, although its current format is the result of research, refinement and adjustment since its first use. Our facilitators are skilled and experienced, and have supported numerous individuals using TIR.
In the majority of cases, TIR results in the complete and permanent elimination of most PTSD symptoms. It also provides valuable insights, which an individual arrives at quite spontaneously without any prompting from the facilitator.
TIR is contra-indicated for use with individuals who:
Since TIR technique is entirely person-centred and non-forceful, individuals will simply discontinue to protect themselves if they find the process too difficult to continue, hence, there are no harmful effects associated with TIR.
A cardinal rule of TIR facilitation, is never to force the individual and to always follow their interest, and our team follow a strict code of ethics in order to ensure you get the best from TIR.
