Review: Clive Girdham – Modified Rewind Online Training
When Clive first started posting about the Modified Rewind, it immediately caught the interest of everyone. How could one approach be so effective at helping so many people overcoming their fears, phobias, and PTSD? One of the things I will say about Sydney based hypnotherapist Clive Girdham is that this man can definitely walk the walk as well as talk the talk. Scratch beneath the surface and every claim Clive makes about his work is absolutely true.
For a few years, Clive offered a free online Mastermind series of presentations and, following that, produced a Stop Smoking online course that many consider being one of the best out there.
Having worked with Clive on a few in-person workshops, Clive also has the uncanny knack of being endlessly engaging. While some training may have you feeling a bit sleepy after lunch, there is something about the energy that Clive brings to his work that provokes curiosity and interest. Perhaps he is using his own Jedi mind tricks in his presentation style but when it is being used for the purposes of good, you have to be grateful for that.
Expanding the hypnotherapy toolkit
Clive’s most recent online offering is the Modified Rewind. Clive first introduced this with a series of workshops around Australia in 2019 and had a phenomenal response. For many of the people who attended the workshop, including myself, the Modified Rewind has become one of those go-to tools in the toolkit that has frequently been pulled out to work with people experiencing phobias, a fear of some future event, or signs of trauma.
Why is it called the Modified Rewind? Clive will be the first to tell you that this isn’t something he created, more something that has been evolved and refined over time with the countless clients he has seen. Based on the Fast Phobia Cure (NLP) and the Rewind (Human Givens), the Modified Rewind strips away the unnecessary and adds in newer aspects so that it becomes, as Clive himself states, “tailored for modern times”.
My own personal experience with this tool has seen me help people with a diverse range of phobia and fears covering everything from thunderstorms, public speaking, and dogs (amongst others). In each case, people who were reporting an anxiety level initially up around the 8-9 out of 10 had it reduced down to around 2/10 (or lower) and felt that they were now experiencing their old concern in a different way. That’s a pretty powerful tool!
What does the Modified Rewind Online Course Offer?
How does this sound for you? 8 modules of content.
The first module, over an hour of content in itself, looks at the history and application of the process before diving into the nuts and bolts of the process itself. Module two looks at simple and complex phobias while module three explores PTSD. Module four looks at what happens when both PTSD and phobias are combined. Module five is close to an hour and a quarter of content featuring live examples. Module six contains all the paperwork and checklists that you’re going to need in order to run the process smoothly each and every time. Module seven is dedicated to applying the process to children and the whole training is rounded out in module 8 with a focus on essential success points.
Which hypnotherapists will benefit from doing this training?
If you’re like me, you do a course and then you go out to the world and apply your learnings to your clients. At that point, you begin to find the questions that you wish you knew during the training start to evolve. I tend to find I need to DO before the questions come.
If that’s you too, then this course is an absolute blessing to act as a refresher on what the workshop offered last year. It’s a great opportunity to consider and reflect on what you’re doing and in what way things need to be tweaked and refined. It isn’t about a perfect replication of Clive’s style; you’ll want to ensure you’re developing how you do you, however, it is about making sure you’re not making some really obvious mistakes.
If you didn’t do the training last year, then this is the perfect opportunity to do it in the comfort of your home and to add a truly useful approach to your toolkit.
If you’re already aware of the Fast Phobia Cure or The Rewind, then you might be curious to explore how it has been modified and why so many people are absolutely singing praises for Clive’s approach.
