Alun Parry is a psychotherapist, speaker, author and podcaster who specialises in helping adults get rid of childhood trauma.
Alun is the Director of The Liverpool Psychotherapy Practice in England.
He became frustrated with therapy approaches that expected people to "manage" their trauma or do exercises daily to keep it at bay.
He didn't like the therapy model that had people attend therapy for the rest of their lives. He wanted people to feel good as quickly as possible.
"Why must people put so much energy into their trauma? Why can't we find a way to just get rid of it, so they can live as easily as those who never suffered it?"
His search led him to study bodily responses to trauma and ultimately to a brain mechanism called memory reconsolidation. A new discovery in neuroscience, it showed that trauma could indeed be removed completely.
Alun's therapeutic approach is geared to using this transformational brain mechanism for permanent, effortless change.

Alun founded FRESHTherapists.com to train other psychotherapists about the power of memory reconsolidation based therapy.
