Fast Phobia Cure
(V/K Dissociation or Rewind Technique)

called the V-K Dissociation process, as the process removes the Kinaesthetic (feeling) from the (usually) Visual stimulus that triggers the unconscious phobic response.

Useful for phobias, panic attacks and PTSD events where imagining the phobia reconnects the phobic kinesthetic experience

The fast phobia cure is a quick and effective cure for dealing with phobias. The key strategy is based around disassociating the visual stimuli which triggers the phobic response from the emotions that it activates. This means that the person can access the memories without triggering the emotional reponse of the phobia by imagining the experience of being outside their body and looking from a remote observer position at the event

Lift your head and eyes upward

Breath high and shallow in your chest

Imagine you are watching a movie of yourself in a cinema, seeing yourself in the movie
(do not experience it from your own perspective through your own eyes)
Step out of your body and move further away from the cinema screen - looking at yourself looking at yourself

Make the visual modalities of the movie smaller, dim, colourless, blurred, grainey with a frame around it

Verbalise the disassociation using 3rd person language

Create two place or if necessary a three place disassociation (watching yourself watching yourself)

Create an image of the scene prior to the event which created the phobia

Run the movie of the event from the beginning to the end

Freeze a still image after the movie of the phobia event has completed which is safe to focus on.You will see yourself in the image.

Project yourself into the image of you and become associated again

Now rewind the film backwards as quickly as you can. Run sound backwards as well.

Imagery will run backwards just as you would see whilst rewinding a video

Go back to the beginning till you are in the safe initial frozen image

jump out of yourself at the beginning

go forward to the end still image (no need to rerun the film)

climb back in to the image of yourself and rewind back to the beginning.

Jump out and go to the end still image and rewind the movie back to the beginning.......this should allow you to speedily erase the phobia pattern in your head if you do this, getting quicker each rewind (6 time should be enough)

Clients have been known to laugh as they rewind their movie.

For extreme phobias rewind up to 20 times.



Personal history change/Timeline techniques can also be utilised to take new knowledge and learnings back to the traumatic event or incident by anchoring new resources to these memories. This allows the clients perceptions and responses to the phobic event to change by reliving the experience as if they actually had those new resources

Final stage is to future pace the client by getting them to imagine a future situation in order to explore the outcome and long term effects of the process
