First Responders, military personnel and elite athletes share a similar performance orientation. Understanding that PTSD drastically undermines the ability of such people to utilise their performance related attributes, e.g., fear management. We worked with elite endurance athletes, first responders and military personnel to develop a solution which used their core skills and characteristics as a means of helping them recover.

As a means of self identification, below you’ll find a psychological profile of the first responder, military personnel and elite athlete. On the basis that you can relate – we’ll provide you with an overview of our 6-10 hour DTech program. (Initial trials showing that traumatic shock and trauma can be eradicated within 6-10 hours).
You find it unacceptable to back down to the fear of failure.
Overcoming fear through taking action is a process which positively challenges you.
There’s a mental, emotional and physical aspect to your pursuit of self mastery, it goes something like this…
Success in this field is of paramount importance to you, failure isn’t an option because your positive purpose/ your reason for being is at stake. The purpose you have in your life defines who you are, it drives what you do, how and why you do it, e.g. The example you set for your children, the success or safety of those you care for… or the reputation you have with yourself – it matters.
From a performance perspective you’ve trained yourself to focus on the process and not the outcome.
“Do you call yourself free? It is your ruling thought that I would hear” – Friedrich Nietzsche
“He who suffers for some future event or thing suffers unnecessarily” – a stoic perspective, one you don’t necessarily agree with… more likely saying, “fail to prepare, prepare to fail”. Yet what we have here (I suggest) is a perfect juxtaposition – given the correct context each is highly applicable and desirable.
As a conscientious person, the commitments you’ve made socially are commitments you keep, consistency marks you out as a person who can be relied upon and trusted – no matter what.
One of the challenges you face in caring for yourself is getting locked inside your own head. The amount of cognitive work it requires to manage any and all of the above often leads to a dampening of one’s emotions… as does managing the tremendous load you put on your body.
If we understand you in the way that you understand yourself, and if you have PTSD or know someone who does, we may be able to help. DTech is a 6-10 hours training for treatment model which has been shown to enable service men and women to effectively recover from shock and trauma.
The training for treatment approach has been developed by one of the world’s most prominent endurance athletes in cooperation with first responders and military personnel in Canada and North America. We understand that you’re not looking for therapy, rather you’re looking for a solution.
