Jenny is supported in her training by Paula Briody who acts as student wellbeing support and assistant teacher. Paula is Matron of a labour ward and qualified in BTR therapy.
BTR Therapy was developed in response to the growing need for an effective, fast and safe treatment for birth trauma and PTSD. According to the Birth Trauma Association 10,000 women a year are diagnosed with birth trauma and PTSD - just the tip of the iceberg.
The screening system in the UK focuses primarily on PND so birth trauma is not being recognised / diagnosed by birth professionals and woman and their partners are not being offered appropriate treatment.
BTR therapy is a unique programme of learning designed to offer birth professionals, including midwives, obstetricians, GP's, health visitors, doulas, hypnobirthing practitioners the necessary screening systems and effective tools and techniques to treat birth trauma and the associated symptoms quickly, safely and effectively.
Jenny is passionate about training highly qualified birth professionals to the highest standard to be able to offer patient led care.
Practitioners are taught to deactivate the trauma template using the Human Givens Rewind Technique that has been adapted to fit the needs of birth trauma patients. This helps the patient to turn a trauma memory into a normal memory, helping them to resume normal day to day functioning and engagement with life.
BTR therapy has been carefully designed to offer practitioners other highly effective tools and techniques to support the body's own natural grieving process in the case of still birth, miscarriages, termination, failed rounds of IVF etc. Techniques are taught and employed to help clients deal with other feelings such as shame, guilt, blame, anger, loss of confidence to offer a well rounded and complete treatment plan.
BTR therapy practitioners are also given tools and skills to treat staff suffering from vicarious trauma and work place trauma.
BTR therapy places a huge amount of value on the treatment of staff who are placed in situations where they may also suffer from birth related trauma.
