My experience with TIR has been an extraordinary journey. All of my conditioned behaviors weighed my spirit down, and by working through major life events, I have been able to reshape my present mind. I feel like the various techniques give me supported time and space to unravel my mental and emotional past. I am thankful for the structure because it has given me a whole new way to process the world around me. I believe the commitment to the exercises make the reward immeasurable. L.
I want to share my experience because I think it might be helpful. I have told my friends and family about my successes; some are interested enough to embark upon this amazing adventure. Some still accept the stigma that if you are becoming more aware or working with someone else in the field of the mind, that something must be wrong with you. I understand that this seems true initially; why would a person seek solutions or help if everything is working well and going fine? It is a valid question. To begin, one would have to have a desire for help, improvement or believe that a change could be good for them. I respect that right of each person to decide for themselves. I just cannot help but want to share the news when I am pleased with my successes: better understanding of myself, others and how life works and situations "just working out" more than before I started viewing. My awareness has increased: sometimes that makes life seem harder because I have to DO something to change it for my betterment and that of those who are in my sphere of influence. It really feels great to have such accomplishments; it is worthwhile... W
I always hoped that I would change these disruptive behaviors before it was too late or before I hit "Rock Bottom". I want to thank you for working with me and guiding me to realizations and insights I would not have discovered without your help. Thanks to you I feel healthier than ever. G
The service I received from Mike was compassionate, non-judgmental, and beneficial. I was referred by a friend when I was at a very low period in my life. I had no employment, had recently moved back into a relationship with my ex-husband and was looking at major surgery as the only way to heal a degenerative neck problem. I was having difficulty managing my time, finances, and relationships. Mike took me through a series of exercises, listened, provided skills, and guided me through helping myself to manage my life. He never expressed judgement when I ran late or couldn’t get it together to get through an appointment. He always listened with grace and understanding and suggested a next step to perhaps help me on my way. I would recommend Mike to anyone that needs guidance toward a more enriched life. His insight helped me to grow and his practice of taking tiny steps toward betterment has helped me have perception and passion for where I am today. D
I cannot say enough positive things about TIR and the impact it has had on my life.
I had no idea what TIR was when I began, and I had never tried memory scanning. At first it was awkward, and I felt a little silly… but I stuck with it and TIR quickly became the single most powerful transformational healing mechanism in my life.
With other modalities I had identified traumatic events from my past but that had not generated much healing or change for me. I seemed stuck in the past. With TIR I was able to see how and why I replicated the pattern again and again…continuing the cycle of trauma and self-destruction in my later years. Simultaneously I un-charged the traumatic memories so I could think or talk about them with ease.
I had several sessions where lifelong patterns of feelings or behaviors were lifted permanently. I could not believe the consistency, generosity and professionalism of my facilitator. His commitment to me and my ability to live a healthy, happy future was next level and produced RESULTS.
I feel I am finally able to make decisions freely, without a long slew of ineffective belief systems running my life.
If you are considering trying TIR I highly encourage you to begin immediately and stay with it until you get the same results. Be courageous, release your past and unlock your future... E
The techniques used were new to me but extremely effective in eliminating the memories of traumatic incidents from the past. I have spent many years believing that if I just thought about my trauma or told enough people about my incidents that they would somehow resolve themselves. This was not true, thinking about or sharing these incidents just kept them in my mind and effected my life decisions in a very negative way. Tisha used various techniques to draw out the incidents and through repetition and [my] viewing from different angles and developing new thought patterns, she was able to guide me along a path that resulted in the complete elimination of the power of the incidents over my life. I have not only lost all desire to remember the past [incidents], it is as if they never happened. I am no longer burdened by these specters at all. She also helped me to develop some thought patterns that have been extremely helpful in dealing with present situations. I find myself using these "catch phrases" many times and they bring me back to the place where I can be myself and feel good about it. I very highly recommend TIR for anyone who is burdened by traumatic events of the past and I highly recommend Tisha. She is kind, caring, professional and a real joy to work with.
A special thank you to you Tisha, you have changed my life for the better... T.
The word facilitator is new for me in this context; it has opened up my eyes. It is a journey of self-discovery that I will continue to grow with for the rest of my days. It began as a look at things that troubled me or hurt me in the past and still bothered me because my attention was stuck in those times; even though my body was here in the present. I have experienced relief from the past and look on the future with much more enthusiasm. T.
This training has helped me in so many ways I am not sure how to explain it. I started not thinking it was anything more than head games. Well if it is, it's the best ones ever. It has helped me in ways I would not have believed if you told me it would help such as with pain control, stress and much more.
When my back or leg starts to hurt I ask myself questions how does this make my body feel. What does my body want me to do. Well for the first time in 20 years the answer is not to take a pain pill. It's now look at what I am doing; am I comfortable, am I stressed? Take a deep breath and figure it out don't take the easy way and pop a pill. I have went from taking pain pills twice a day to once or twice a week, if that.
If I am driving my car, instead of getting irritated I take a breath and tell myself "everyone in traffic is trying to get some place, it's not just me, relax and slow down" inside my head. I do not have to scream, or honk the horn (it really never helps anyway). I love being able to talk to myself in a helpful manner and know that I am not going to stress out which makes my body hurt, makes me want to explode etc.
I am looking forward to my next session very much. I hope everyone will try this. It is a wonderful gift to yourself. V.
I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know how much you helped me on my journey. I couldn't have done anything or be anywhere close to where I am without your help... Again I just wanted to thank you so much for being there for me. G.
"I’ve had two TIR sessions. TIR is accredited, created by Frank Gerbode MD. Obviously, 2 sessions doth not an expert make, but all the same, it’s excellent counseling*. I found it to be a bit more streamlined than [another modality]**. Suited me just fine. I made some emotional breakthroughs. C.
(*TIR is not counseling, but instead "Integrative Education", delivered by a Facilitator) (** We prefer to not juxtopose ourselves to other helping modalities)
