RAFT Trauma Recovery

Through its Recovery/Reconnection and Floatation Therapy (RAFT) programme Hydro-ease practices an exclusive and revolutionary new approach to trauma recovery and emotional regulation by creating ‘person centred’ pathways to a better life. There is no other known service like it.

It can help with emotional and psychological trauma, anxiety, fears and phobias, depression, PTSD, grief, guilt and shame, anger and rage, insomnia and sleep issues, compulsions, addictions, self-esteem and confidence issues, craving and emotional eating as well as relief from chronic pain.

Otherwise known as Reconnection, Recovery and Floatation Therapy, this service is unique to Hydro-ease because it is built upon Vivian McKinnon’s personal life experiences of a traumatic childhood and the professional skills and qualifications she developed in later life.

This approaches uses the best elements of Havening Therapy, Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, SPECRTUM Coaching and a dedicated Smart Recovery programme to assist in overcoming addictive behaviours and trauma recovery.

It is carried out in unison with floatation therapy helping clients to construct pathways to a better life through restriction in external stimuli and latest approaches in neuroscience.

The first sixty minutes is spent one-to-one with Vivian, a highly qualified, skilled and experienced holistic change specialist. This is followed by an hour of floatation to consolidate the therapeutic value and learning of what has just taken place.

We also offer a free 30 minute consultation where you can have a chat with Vivian to find out what RAFT can do for you.

RAFT is different because it deals with the root cause of the unhelpful coping or avoidance strategies. It works with the electrical, magnetic and chemical circuits of the mind and body to remove and replace the emotion and physical drivers.

The first part of RAFT can be delivered ‘content free.’ This means that unlike traditional talking therapies, the client does not have to verbally repeat traumatic experiences or even to have to recall them.

It works by interrupting the neuro circuits that keep these responses active, re-routing the neuropathways and inviting the mind into delta wave activity which is associated with deep restful sleep.

Floatation follows therapeutic treatment where the client is afforded a zero gravity and restricted external stimulation experience enabling the mind and body to become fully relaxed promoting deep change and a shift in life realisations.

Sessions last two hours although clients are advised to schedule 2.5 hours out of their day.

Vivian believes the recovery and reconnection process is unique to every individual and has developed a ‘person centred’ approach to help clients ‘move away from pain and towards pleasure.’
