In this episode, Prof Grant Schofield speaks with Dr Robin Youngson, a Trauma Therapist, Certified Havening Practitioner and retired Anesthesiologist.
Grant and Robin discuss Robin’s journey initially as an engineer and then into medicine as an anesthesiologist and his disillusionment and drive for change at a really high level in the medical system. Robin has since become a central figure in the field of trauma therapy and is bringing about real change with tools such as the Havening technique as part of his approach to use the latest science to treat psychological ill-health.
“I’m talking about really serious major trauma and extremely disordered lives and whatever is presenting I start to work with and it’s like archeology, we gradually dig down the layers and get down to the older and older stuff and it just emerges out of the subconscious bit by bit… we just quietly and patiently work our way and you see the client gradually build more and more resilience, letting go of trauma, losing symptoms ad physical health improving bit by bit.” – Dr Robin Youngson
This season we’re talking mental health. We’ve become really concerned about the lack of translation of what science knows into what medicine does.
