What if there was a safe, gentle and effective way to support parents recovery from birth trauma?


TBR 3 Step Rewind Open For Enrollment

We know that left untreated trauma symptoms can manifest into more entrenched mental health problems.

We know that many parents who have had no prior history of mental health problems are often desperate for a brief intervention that can gently restore them to their prior health.

We know that whilst some parents require more in depth psychological support from therapeutic professionals, many parents simply want to feel better, quickly.

The truth is .....

  • Many parents and professionals choose to use TBR 3 Step Rewind because it's safe, gentle and effective. 
  • Many parents  prefer being supported by their trusted doula, antenatal teacher or midwife when it choosing TBR 3 Step Rewind to recover.
  • This easy to learn process allows parents to go towards their own goals for recovery and then get on with their life. 
  • Sadly perinatal trauma is too common an incidence for there to not be more skilled professionals available for parents who need support.

'Without a doubt, this and TBR 3 Step Rewind are the most useful and transformative courses that I have undertaken for perinatal mental health support. I use these techniques all the time. The feedback I have had from women has been unilaterally positive and so valued by them!'

Sarah Kelly


‘What an excellent course. Validating all that I thought was correct and supporting the idea that any listening or debrief service is so valuable to women and professionals. There are so many lessons to be learnt not only from the course but in the way we listen to women and their families about how they have been traumatised.’ 

Jillian Ireland

PMA Midwife

‘‘I have found the training to be very useful in my work as a midwife. I have used TBR 3 Step Rewind to help colleagues with the effects of vicarious trauma. I have completed several forms of therapy training and felt that with Alex the value was very high. Ongoing support and supervision is excellent. Alex has created a community.’

Now is the time to develop your skills and grow you business

‘I am a Former Midwife and have had my own Birth Biz for 6 years, teaching
Hypnobirthing and working as a Doula.

Working on reducing the likelihood of birth trauma is something that I very much do in my Hypnobirthing and Doula roles but I needed something else, a technique, skill that could help me to assist those who sadly have already experienced trauma and are living with the effects every day!

Ideally I was hoping to do the face to face course but time and
circumstances wouldn't allow, so I chose to do the online course.

I have to admit I was a bit concerned that I would a bit or not feel as
connected to the support available. I was wrong! The online course was
fantastic, the videos Alex included and the written material were wonderful
and kept me engaged, I literally couldn't put it down!

So this is now another element to my Birth work, offering the amazing 3 Step Rewind Technique. I had
may first client earlier this month, I have to admit I felt pressured, this lovely lady was extremely traumatised, I couldn't get my head around how such a simple to do technique delivered in just two sessions could make such a huge difference. It literally was like waving a magic wand, the change in the lady was tangible!
Something lifted and released and it was beyond wonderful to be a part of. I have already received so much interest in the sessions and feel privileged to be able to offer this amazing technique. The support I have received from Alex herself and the online community has been wonderful, you feel very supported.

I really can't thanks Alex enough, this course and technique
are game changers for me, women, partners, babies and I am so pleased to be a part of it x’
