Havening Techniques™ What Are They? Havening Techniques™ for Trauma?

Havening TechniquesTM Researched, developed and created by Neuroscientist, Dr Ron Ruden, Havening opens the field of Psychosensory Therapy and offers people suffering from fear, panic, stress, anxiety/nerves and other traumas, a fast and effective tool for permanent removal of the emotion.

Scientists have found that the Havening Touch, which is a firm, slow movement on your arms, palms and face, causes a change in brain chemistry and permanently removes the emotion from the memory, craving or distressing thought.  It appears to be a very simple process, but years of research show how this process creates a powerful biological change in the brain.   The memory or distressing thought is recalled and by distracting the memory whilst you are visualising (such as walking on the beach) at the same time as doing something auditory (such as counting from one to twenty or humming a tune), we ‘unstick’ the emotion with the Havening Touch.

The Havening TechniqueTM, or its scientific name, ‘Amygdala Depotentiation Technique’ (ADT), is powerful at a neurochemical level for reducing and removing:

  • Panic Attacks
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Trauma (such as natural disasters, serious accidents, viscious animal attacks, sudden loss etc)
  • Stress
  • PTSD
  • Compulsions
  • Chronic Pain
  • Anxiety / Nervousness
  • Bereavement
  • Guilt, Shame, Embarrassment, Humiliation etc
  • Distressing Memories


Why See A Havening Practitioner?

A Havening ADT Practitioner is skilled at working with clients at an advanced level and is able to find out the core elements of where the stress/trauma lies and is able to manage any possible abreactions.  If you are uncomfortable with the Havening Touch by a practitioner, you can Self-Haven during the Havening session. You will probably find many Havening videos on the internet and whilst some of these will be demonstrated correctly, many are not.   Self-Havening can be very effective, however, if you are unsure what to do or aren’t getting the results you want, it is recommended that you see a qualified Havening Practitioner.

Because Havening doesn’t require the client to discuss the content of the issues, trauma or distressing memory, the client feels more comfortable.


Is Havening The Same As TFT or EFT?

The Havening Technique is not to be confused with EFT or TFT which are based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and use tapping on various meridian points.  Havening is a powerful biologically engineered therapy and produces more rapid response and less distress for the client.  There is no tapping involved.  Most clients do not believe that Havening will work and are astonished when it does.


What Happens After Havening?

After successful Havening, your block, trauma, stuck emotion, nervousness or distressing memory will no longer be there or no longer be emotional.  Instead it will seem a distant thing in the past, fuzzy, blurry or further away so that you feel detached, safe, calmer, more in control and happier, and you will never be able to feel the same distress about that memory, experience or feeling ever again as the biological structure of the brain has been permanently altered.

Having already used Havening on many of our clients with great success, we are on a mission along with Dr Ron Ruden, Paul McKenna, Deborah Tom and our fellow practitioners to get this into and accepted by the NHS as a first point of treatment for stress, PTSD, traumas, fears, compulsions, panic attacks and more.
