TBT – Trauma Buster Technique
What is TBT and how does it work?
The Trauma Buster Technique is a technique with which the automatically occurring secondary symptoms of a trauma or a shock can be eliminated in a fast and safe way. Post-traumatic stress is permanently relieved and the inner experience is changed.
This is done by means of a standardized process comprising four steps, using techniques from EFT knock-acupressure and neurolinguistic programming. These steps interrupt the trauma pattern in the brain. The traumatic memory is alienated and fragmented so that the associated trigger for the involuntary triggering of stressful symptoms is eliminated.
If one remembers the trauma again, this no longer triggers any physical symptoms or emotionally stressful reactions.
On the neurophysiological level, the previous connections between the stress situation and the associated emotional and physiological reactions are interrupted and successfully deleted in the long term.
This creates a basis for any further therapeutic accompaniment and treatment of treatment-resistant diseases, chronic pain and addictions that may be necessary. Furthermore, TBT can accelerate or optimise healing after an accident or a severe diagnosis.
Maya de Vries, my TBT trainer, summarizes the TBT process as follows:
With TBT one ‘cracks’ the encryption of a stressful life experience by searching for the shock point in it and then fragments and alienates it on the primary perception channel. This changes the emotional and physical experience of this memory.
- Powerful, highly effective and persistent
- Brings back freedom and quality of life
- The relieving effect is immediately noticeable
The TBT process is very gentle and safe and shows no negative side effects according to previous knowledge.
The worldwide experience with the Trauma Buster Technique so far is very promising.
Who developed TBT?
The Trauma Buster Technique (TBT) was developed in over ten years by Australian Rehana Webster (EFT and NLP Master).
She achieved impressive results with juvenile offenders and war veterans with long-term post-traumatic stress disorders such as flashbacks, hypervigilance and dissociation, with torture victims and war refugees before she went public with it.
We cannot change the actual experience of something that happened in the past. But we are able to change how the experience is structured and consequently how the experience is remembered.
For many years, Rehana Webster has volunteered to travel to crisis areas where she helps adults and children free themselves from trauma sequel symptoms. She works regularly in Pakistan, Jordan and Lebanon.
Today TBT is used very successfully worldwide to dissolve shock traumas.
The following 30 minute documentary „After the bombs“by Robert Albert Ernest offers an insight into the work of Rehana Webster and the effects of TBT.
The film shows how the committed Australian woman and her team help Syrian refugees in Lebanon to resolve their post-traumatic stress and what enormous possibilities the Trauma Buster Technique has.
When and with whom can TBT be used?
TBT is suitable for both adults and children – from all cultural and religious backgrounds.
TBT is used to protect people working in highly stressful professions (policemen, firefighters, carers, social workers) from traumatisation or post-traumatic stress disorder.
TBT is not analytical and is therefore also suitable for working with people who have little desire to talk about feelings.
It is irrelevant how long the experience goes back in time. Only a conscious memory of it must be present.
The technique can be applied to all stressful memories that evoke a moment of shock or shock:
- after an accident
- sexual assaults
- experience of physical or mental violence
- a burglary
- a difficult diagnosis
Contact with death (suicide, attempted suicide, accidental death, violent death)
- separations, divorce
- job loss
- Childhood events
- war experiences
- secondary traumatizations
- or other stressful experiences (a visit to the dentist, a scene at work, an observation)
