Whether you want to reach the unreachable, influence the affluent, or even heal the hurting in a big way, you can’t afford to be the world’s best-kept secret. You must take massive amounts of action and put in the work that will eventually win over the hearts and heads of every audience. - From the Foreword by David T. Fagan, Former CEO of Guerilla Marketing
Therapists and counsellors, in training and practice, will welcome this concise and practical introduction to the TIR approach for helping clients with PTSD and other human traumas. The book is application-based, providing a step-by-step guide from initial assessment to the last counselling session, illustrated with many examples from actual sessions. TIR is a person-centred, structured approach which can
- achieve symptom resolution in a brief course of counselling (often about 20 hours)
- respect and value the client's experience and needs
- work alongside a variety of therapy methods in a holistic way
- minimise the risk of re-traumatization
The authors provide a review of the major theories of stress and trauma, and of other methods of working with clients that are most useful alongside the TIR approach, an approach that is useful for a wide range of 'normal life' traumas, not just PTSD.

This book is made up of education about the skills, examples and plans to learn the skills complete with exercises. Why are skills so important? The a person lack skills they are set up to experience difficult situations throughout their lives. I have dedicated a chunk to the results gaslighting because this abusive behaviour robs people of some of the most essential skills, sets them up for emotional abuse, intimate partner violence, rape, sexual violence and physical abuse/assault later in life. These skills make it possible for us to integrate well with others, keep a solid sense of self, self-worth and have relationships that bring all parties joy.
It is full of BDSM, fetish and power exchange (authority transfer) dynamics. The lines between my erotica and my lived reality are easy to blur. I hope that this book will excite, inspire and open doors. There is light no matter how long you have been in the darkness. It is a matter of learning how to kindle the flame and light the torch. We are all works in progress, can learn from our patterns and our histories and develop new skills no matter what stage we are at in life. It remains my mission to take sex and conversations about sex from the shadows to the light.
