We are delighted to welcome Andrew Thomas to introduce his trauma work using the Rainbow Map.
Andrew Thomas (BSc, MSc, MA) MBACP Accred
I work chiefly through a modality I call Trigger Based Therapy from which the Rainbow Map is a spin off tool. I integrate the Rainbow Map in my client work if it appears that trauma/PTSD related affects such as anger, anxiety and/or depression are having an unwanted impact on their life. Trigger Based Therapy is an integration of a number of mainstream threapeutic modalities and my own R&D work.
The guiding values both sections of my career have centered on are sharing knowledge, expertise, and power in a collaborative way with clients. Central to this approach has been the use of everyday language in my work and finding ways to make complex theory and practice transparent and accessible. The Rainbow Map was inspired by that approach and its development has been guided by those values.
The support, encouragement and feedback from fellow therapists have motivated and influenced my work and probably explains why the Rainbow Map and CPD resonates so strongly with therapists practicing in virtually all mainstream modalities.
