Havening Technique ®
I am currently in need of practice clients to complete my Havening Practitioners Certification. If you would like to have a free session use the BOOKING FORM BELOW
The Havening Technique® is a fast, smooth and very powerful psychosensory technique that assists your brain to rewire your emotional responses so that you can release:
*trauma (undigested or unprocessed life experience that still affects us, it is what happens inside of us as a result of an external event)
*build confidence and self-esteem
*assist with grief
*remove those emotions you continue to feel in your body
*remove situational and environmental triggers from traumatic events
*overcome limiting behaviours
Havening is especially helpful if you have had a specific traumatic or upsetting event e.g.
*a car accident
*a bad fall
*had an unexpected hospital visit/treatment
*an upsetting event in a relationship
Havening uses self or practitioner touch and other processes to gently and safely move you into a place of change, healing and freedom.
Havening is a neuroscience-based technique that has been shown to help issues such as trauma, stress, phobias, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), disturbing memories, anger responses, fears, emotional distress e.g. anxiety, frustration, grief, as well as a range of other issues.
This technique is designed to change the electrochemical status of the brain, by removing the stress response that gets generated when certain anxiety-related areas are accessed. Namely, it can de-traumatise specific memories, removing their negative effects on the body and psyche, hence the person retains the capacity to access those areas of the brain without experiencing the emotional distress they typically generate.
What happens during a Havening session?
During a Havening session, the client sits on a chair in person or engages by Zoom and is guided through specific mental exercises while either Fiona or the client performs the Havening touch (a specific soothing touch on the palms, upper arms and face/forehead, designed to induce delta brain waves and consequently change the chemical structure of the neurons affected by the trauma). Fiona may get you to apply a distraction (e.g. say the alphabet backwards) and use affirmations while Havening during the session to help shift the brain into a Delta state. A typical Havening session lasts between 30 min and 1 hour, and the effects are expected to be permanent.
Dr. Ronald Ruden is the creator of The Havening Techniques. Over the last three decades he has translated the recent advances in neuroscience into new methods of healing. In his first book, 'The Craving Brain' (1997), he explores the science behind addictive behaviors and proposes a way to inhibit relapse and to treat the symptoms arising from sobriety. It is a model that requires the individual to play an active role in maintaining abstinence.
