The Havening Techniques ® are an extremely quick and effective method for treating PTSD, phobias, panic attacks, grief, and other intense emotional states brought about by traumatic and distressing events. Havening is a psycho-sensory modality that helps people overcome the effects of these events by changing the way that the brain stores the memory of them. The Havening Techniques are used both to heal distressing emotional states and to develop positive ones. They enable liberation from patterns caused by fear and aversion so that clients are more free to live the life they want.
