Do you feel that you are carrying past trauma and can’t move forward? Is this impacting your life?
Havening Techniques® is a psycho-sensory technique using touch (and can be self touch so you can have a session with me wherever you live) to change the way a painful and traumatic memory is stored.
It works by using touch, distraction and eye movements. You recall an event, memory or limiting belief that you would like to work on. The touch produces delta waves in the brain, relaxes you and makes you feel safe (supported also by my trauma informed training)
The touch stimulates the skin’s receptors and increases neurochemicals in the brain. During this process the memory is delinked from the fight-flight-freeze response meaning you can look back on the memory and it doesn’t have the same emotional charge to it.
The consequences of traumatic encoding and stressful life events can be both physical and psychological however it is important to remember that you don’t have to carry these around with you forever.
Havening is quick and easy and can create permanent change. It is suitable for people of all ages, including children.
