Havening Techniques®

Havening Techniques®  is a relatively new, innovative, neuroscience-based therapy that is a gentle and effective treatment for past emotional traumas, anxiety, fears and phobias, that may be holding you back ,from being free to live the life you desire or being the person you want to be.

Havening Techniques® are otherwise known as Delta Wave Techniques, is a practice that uses simple touch to create delta waves in the brain. 

It specifically works on the amygdala of the brain, de-traumatising the memory and releasing the emotional connection that is causing the distress. This, in turn, helps to permanently eliminate and release unwanted feelings and emotions from both the body and mind.
It is also a highly effective tool and technique for the enhancement of resilience and general wellbeing.  Increases resilience by enhancing  confidence and self-esteem, encouraging personal and professional growth.

Havening Technique® FAQ

Are the Havening Techniques just a distraction method?
No, but distraction plays a role in The Havening Techniques. Each distraction component has a biological correlate. This means there is a purpose to each action. Our experience is that most clients do not believe it will work and are astonished when it does. The strangeness of the method and its effects on their mind makes them ask the following questions.
Are the results of a session of The Havening Techniques permanent?
While the Havening Techniques is a relatively new healing approach and has yet to be fully researched, we've observed that after successfully applying The Havening Techniques, it appears to be permanent in most cases. This is because The Havening Techniques are designed to alter the biological structure of the brain. The occasional return of symptoms implies either the traumatic core has not yet been found or the problem has been encoded in a different way. In particular, addictive and obsessive/compulsive behaviours, certain pain syndromes, and vasovagal (e.g., fainting) issues often need reinforcement or cannot be treated at the present time. No healing method or therapy works for all problems.
Are the Havening Techniques a form of hypnosis?
No. The Havening Techniques do not involve a hypnotic trance. The client is always aware of their feelings, thoughts, and surroundings and participates fully in the process.
Exactly how do the Havening Techniques work?
We believe the consequences of trauma and stressful life events are stored in the brain and are activated by conscious or inadvertent recall. Once this recall occurs, symptoms are generated. This activation also makes the pathway that generates these feelings subject to disruption (see Primer for details). The Havening Techniques are designed to disrupt this pathway through a process called synaptic depotentiation; literally, it is as if we darken a room by pulling a plug on a lit lamp. Although we can't provide any guarantees, the emotions and sometimes even the ability to recall the memory can be extinguished after performing The Havening Techniques.
What if my client or I feel uncomfortable about touching?
Havening Touch involves a simple touch of the hands, upper arm, and face. Even though a trusted practitioner will be performing Havening Touch, it is essential as part of the informed consent process that permission be obtained for this aspect of the session. There are certain circumstances where the practitioner or the client may not wish to touch or be touched. This is not a problem, as the client can self-apply Havening Touch. These techniques are demonstrated in the videos.
How are the Havening Techniques different from TFT, EFT, and EMDR?
Even though these approaches look similar, the Havening Technique appears to produce a more rapid response and cause less distress for the client than TFT, EFT, and EMDR. In large part, we believe this is due to the comprehensive understanding of the underlying neurobiology for the Havening Techniques. In addition, the Havening Techniques have different modalities that make it possible to accelerate healing. In short, the Havening Techniques have been designed as a powerful, biologically engineered healing method. EFT and TFT are innovative energy oriented therapy, coaching, and self-help techniques based on the newly emerging field of energy psychology. Energy psychology methods are designed to assess where the body's energies are blocked or not in harmony and then correct and balance the flow of these energies, thereby aligning the body's natural energies. They use the ancient Chinese meridian system with a gentle tapping procedure, which stimulates designated end points on the face and body, while saying specific phrases and focusing on issues of emotional intensity in order to release the intensity and re-frame the issues.
Are the Havening Techniques dangerous?
Every healing method has side effects, and it is possible to experience negative side effects with the Havening Techniques. Therefore, if you have experienced a serious trauma or have a psychological disorder, we recommend using the Havening Techniques only with a professional mental health care provider who has been fully trained and certified in the Havening Techniques. Potential risks with using the Havening Techniques include in-session abreactions (crying, anger, physical movements), post-havening light headedness, and rarely, a worsening of symptoms or emotional numbing. These last two effects can be a consequence of bringing to awareness long since forgotten but biologically active memories. These should be treated by a qualified mental health care practitioner. In addition, highly traumatized individuals who use anger as a defence may become agitated by the premature removal of their protective anger and may increase their distress. If you choose to use the Havening Techniques as a self-help tool, it is possible to experience some emotional distress and/or physical discomfort, and additional unresolved memories may surface during or after using the Havening Techniques that can be perceived as negative. Emotional material may continue to surface after using the Havening Techniques, indicating other issues may need to be addressed. If you inadvertently experience any distressing reactions or negative side effects, you are strongly advised to stop using the Havening Techniques and seek appropriate professional help
