The Founder of
Reverse Speech


David John Oates discovered Reverse Speech in 1987. Since then, he has dedicated his life to research and promoting it across the globe through lectures, training shows and media appearances. He also uses it in his private therapy practice to help people breakthrough their emotional challenges.

What is Reverse Speech?

Reverse speech is another form of human communication that is automatically generated by the brain as we speak. It occurs backwards in speech and can be heard if human speech is recorded and played backwards. Mixed amongst the gibberish at regular intervals can be heard quite clear grammatically correct sentences that detail what is happening in the unconscious mind of the speaker. If a person is lying in forward speech, their reverse speech may reveal the truth. At deeper levels reverse speech can reveal psychological causes for current issues, whether they be mental emotional or physical.
