3 Step Rewind for Traumatic Birth or Pregnancy Recovery (For more information go to http://www.elliethedoula.com/trauma-recovery/):

This service is available online through zoom.

  • Initial session where we get to know one another and discuss your goals and what you would like the rewind to do for you (you do not need to reveal any details about your traumatic experience, unless you feel you would like to.)
  • In the second session we will do a relaxation script and approach the rewind process. This can take up to an hour. We can talk afterwards if you want to.
  • I aim to check in with you a week later, to see how you are feeling and discuss the process. Often this is enough but if we need to, we can book in another rewind session if appropriate.

Price: £125 for 3 step rewind process (2-3 sessions). 

Online one to one coaching and mentoring sessions; Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond.
