Presentation: Havening Power Circle

An opportunity to explore the practical use of Havening Techniques

Join this workshop and learn how to use Havening to empower yourself and others in practical, effective and comfortable ways. Our focus will be on exploring how we can change our perspective and emotional responses more easily and pleasantly than we might imagine; and in increasing our wellbeing, through accessing pleasant memories, sharing our experiences and utilising Havening Touch and several Havening Techniques.

About Havening: a better way of living through neuroscience

Through research and development, Drs Ronald and Steven Ruden were able to share a new system grounded in neuroscience and clinical observation. They called this system ‘Havening’, meaning ‘to put one in a safe place’, a safe haven.People who have experienced the techniques say that they are ‘effective’ and ‘easy and pleasant to use’. A study at King’s College London showed that after just one session of Havening nearly all of the participants were able to concentrate better, let go of disturbing thoughts and eliminate worry, and were able to boost their self-esteem. The results also showed that most of the participants were still benefiting from those changes two months after the single session of Havening.

Presentation: Learn About The Havening Techniques®

Learn about the Havening Techniques® with one of the first certified practitioners and trainers in the world, Carol Robertson PhD.

Gain an understanding of how these gentle and seemingly simple processes work biologically, via our electrical and chemical systems. And find out how the change in our neurology alters our emotional and physical responses and facilitates our ability to relax, sleep or learn.

Take the opportunity to experiment with Havening Touch® and find out more about some of the many techniques.

Ever increasing numbers of professionals are becoming certified Havening Techniques Practitioners. These include therapists, mental health practitioners, specialists in trauma recovery, bodyworkers, teachers, first-responders, self-development facilitators, hypnotherapists, TFT and EFT practitioners, NLP practitioners, reiki practitioners, acupuncturists, and sports and performance coaches.

Through the work of these practitioners we are learning that there are many uses for the techniques, and huge potential. Practitioners are engaging with people from birth to end of life; helping people suffering with symptoms from traumatisation such as PTSD; rage; chronic pain; anxiety; loss; phobias; and suicidal ideation.

They are empowering those who are carers, parents, or teachers, and helping people improve sports performance or with challenges such as presenting, acting and creating art. They are supporting people on autistic spectrum with sensory issues; or assisting people, families, businesses or groups seeking improvement, wanting to be effective, eat healthily and be fit. The system itself offers enormous creativity to practitioners and individuals can learn to use Havening themselves, which is massively empowering.

Quotes from individuals (age 8 to 90 years) describe their experience of Havening using words such as ‘gentle’, ‘easy-to-do’, ‘enabling’, ‘kind’, ‘lovely’, ‘amazing’, ‘that was fast’, ‘wow it really worked’, ‘makes sense’, ‘was comfortable’, ‘not what I expected therapy to be like’, ‘liked it best’, ‘took me to a safe place’ and ‘love that Havening is ours to use’.
