This podcast is the narrated version of my article 3 Reasons I Never Have My Clients Relive Their Traumatic Experiences.

Here are three reasons why I never get a client with PTSD to relive their traumatic experiences.

In this episode I talk about:

  • ‘Help’ can sometimes harm
  • Reason One: You can reactivate the pattern and embed it deeper
  • Reason Two: Someone who desperately needs help may be put off ever seeking it
  • Reason Three: It’s a waste of valuable time
  • Rocking the boat?
