Last October I attended a workshop on a new therapy called “Havening” that just totally amazed me. I started using it immediately with clients and have gotten some spectacular results with it.
It is called “Havening” because, as I understand it, its first application was in the treatment of Trauma. According to the creator of Havening, Dr. Ron Ruden, one of the criteria for an experience to be classified in our minds as a trauma is it has to include a feeling of inescapability. The person feels that there is no “safe haven” where he or she can go to escape. The process of Havening, then, helps to create a sense of having such a refuge.
Here’s what author Paul McKenna has to say about it:
“Havening, also known as Amygdala Depotentiation Therapy (ADT) is going to change the face of therapy across the world.
What used to take months to cure can now be done in minutes in most cases: PTSD, trauma, pain, depression and many more disorders. The initial study recently completed by King’s College London shows the remarkable effectiveness of this extraordinary set of processes.
This is not to be confused with other psycho-sensory techniques, TFT, EMDR, etc. Whilst they are very good, Havening is light years ahead. If you want to be an excellent therapist, you can’t afford not to learn this breakthrough approach.”
I’m currently completing the process of getting certified in Havening because I’ve found it to be such an invaluable tool to make some very deep and lasting changes with my clients.
