HOW MANY SESSIONS AND HOW LONG ARE THEY

The first session normally takes one and a half hours, the following normally one hour. As regards how many sessions, that does depend on the therapy.   With Havening I now only work with people who committee to three sessions.

Reflexology.

A once of session is so incredible relaxing and a treat, but generally people committee to four sessions and then once a month.   But that is totally up to you.

EFT tapping, one session is very effective but I recommend two or three.

HOW ARE YOUR RESULTS SO RAPID?

Having discovered Havening, that method along with my 20 years experience allows me to select what I believe are profoundly effective and rapid tools to release trauma. Havening is based in evolutionary biology and offers you the opportunity to live a healthier, hopefully happier and more productive life. To Western eyes, to watch pain instantly disappear, long standing problems resolve and disturbing memories fade into the irretrievable past is nothing short of astonishing.
We call this method Havening. Havening, the transitive verb of the word haven, means to put into a safe place. While some forms of this approach have been around for decades, many mental health professionals remain skeptical given that it involves no medication, talking or prolonged exposure.

Havening has the unique ability to be just an effective online as it is in person. If you are feeling stressed or have particular issues you would additional support with remember that our global community of practitioners are available - just one wi fi or cellular connection away.
