The Trauma Resiliency Protocol & Emotions Management Process: Moving from Fight-or-Flight into Rest



The Trauma Resiliency Protocol (TR-P) and Emotions Management Process (EMP) are non-therapeutic methods that help you heal from traumatic events and life hurts that negatively impact your life. With advancements in neuroscience, we’ve learned that PTSD, Panic Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, and Depressive Disorders are not psychological; they are neurological conditions that link emotions to events or circumstances. We view them as injuries, and injuries can heal. Emotions can become attached to a traumatic event or a significant emotional event. Our goal with TR-P and EMP is to detach the emotion tied to the memory so that you can be set free and move on with your life.


The Trauma Resiliency Protocol (TR-P) and Emotions Management Process (EMP) are brain-based methods used to develop subconscious resiliency skills and create new neural pathways in the brain. TR-P and EMP, at their root, are simplified forms of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). The TR-P technique involves a process we call sight, a sensory separation that will separate the emotions from memory visually and kinesthetically through a dissociation process. TR-P allows the amygdala of the brain to remove the trauma’s stored response. From there, the memory is moved and stored in the hippocampus, where it belongs. Once you clear the incident’s emotions, it becomes just another long-term memory without the visceral feeling. Many individuals report an exponential decrease in their symptoms associated with trauma.


With the Trauma Resiliency Protocol (TR-P) and the Emotions Management Process (EMP), neurological connections can be severed relatively quickly and painlessly. The process allows the brain to make changes on a subconscious level without feeling the enormity of the emotions. The emotions associated with traumatic memories such as anger, sadness, fear, terror, helplessness, shame, hurt, grief, abandonment, or any emotion perceived as negative can be identified at the root cause, reframed, and let go of. This process will help your nervous system get out of the disease-driving sympathetic state of “fight or flight,” where stress chemicals are on a constant fire, and into the healing parasympathetic state of rest. This is where true healing happens!



What to Expect at Your TRP & EMP Session


I will give you a couple of forms to fill out prior to your appointment and then work with you using guided visualizations to sever the emotions tied to any traumatic or hurtful memories. The TR-P and EMP intervention will rewire the brain and create new neural pathways. During the session, you may feel tired as your nervous system shifts out of “fight or flight” and into a “rest” state.


You may schedule a virtual video appointment for your sessions. Expect your first session to last about two hours—follow-up sessions are one hour. Most individuals have so much improvement after just 2-4 sessions that I don’t see them again. Some individuals may make periodic appointments as different emotions surface over time. The goal is to help you heal so that you don’t need me anymore. The best part of this process is that you do not have to talk about what happened, and it has a 98% success rate!



What if I Don’t Remember Any Trauma?


Even if you do not have PTSD or sub-clinical trauma, the Emotions Management Process can be highly beneficial in clearing negative emotions and beliefs tied to memories that impact you and keep you from being the best version of yourself. The things we are told as children are carried with us whether we realize it or not. It could have been a negative comment made to you by a parent, teacher, family member, or another child that, without you knowing, is limiting your potential to this very day. We may not see these incidents as trauma, but we are still affected. Every living person can benefit from the Emotions Management Process.



What is Trauma: Fight, Flight, Freeze, or Fawn


Trauma results from exposure to an incident or series of events that are emotionally disturbing or life-threatening with lasting adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being. Experiences like physical, sexual, and emotional abuse; loss of a loved one, illness, childhood neglect, racism, discrimination, witnessing a traumatic event, poverty, etc., cause brain injury and leave the body in a perpetual sympathetic state of “fight or flight” even after the event is over. This is where stress chemicals in the body are on a constant misfire. This continuous onslaught of stress chemicals can eventually lead to ill health.


Trauma can occur at any age but has debilitating long-term effects on a child’s developing brain. These can be referred to as adverse childhood experiences, also known as ACEs. The more a child is exposed to stressful and potentially traumatic experiences, the greater his or her risk for chronic health conditions and health-risk behaviors. Traumatic events can have deleterious effects on health at any age.


While it’s commonly referred to as a “fight or flight” response, we now know those aren’t the only reactions that kick in, “freeze or fawn” are also responses in the sympathetic state. Individuals with PTSD or sub-clinical trauma are stuck in time. While some therapies can be helpful, the key is disconnecting the emotion from the traumatic memory so that the body can move into the healing parasympathetic state.


A vital step to improving overall health is getting out of a sympathetic response and moving into a parasympathetic (rest) state. The first step is fixing the brain/emotion connection with TR-P and EMP. This will calm your nervous system and get your body to stop releasing stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline constantly.
