“No matter where we sit along the lifespan, life happens and inevitably changes the way we see the world and respond to it. Increasingly my work has been with people carrying the burden of chronic disease and diminishing hope, including those (even at a very young age) who find the impact of trauma in their lives prevents them from being able to contribute to society and feel the fulfilment of purpose in their lives. I have witnessed the profound effect of Havening as therapy in a wide variety of situations now, with life changing outcomes.”


Experience the Power of Havening Therapy

Havening Techniques® create new neural pathways in the brain to help reduce distressing symptoms related to negative memories and experiences. This is through the use of specific soothing touch along with knowledge of how the brain encodes trauma through electro-chemical changes.

Research, based on latest neuroscience breakthroughs, has shown that Havening seems to resolve issues quickly and permanently. The word Havening was chosen to describe the aim of the process, to reach a place of safety and security.

Havening can help with: trauma (including childbirth related), PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), phobias, stress, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, anger, chronic pain, relationship issues.

"Wow I am truly amazed at how fast my first ever Havening healing session with Penny healed me. I had been carrying old trauma within my body & consciousness for many years. Which meant I was living in fear & anxiety, it had been effecting how I lived my life. Now after one session I feel I am free & I will be able to live a life with less fear. Which has opened up so many possibilities for me. Thank you Penny!"

“The birth of my son was extremely traumatic. The following weeks and then months I struggled to process it all and found myself in a constantly overwhelmed and anxious state. I felt as If I would need many therapy sessions to unpack my experience and help me move forward. I went into my Havening therapy session with no expectations and came out truly amazed by the result. I could look back at the initial trauma and feel that everything was okay and that most importantly I was going to be okay. I highly recommend this therapy to everyone, there is nothing to lose.”

“Memories that I was fiixated on, were no longer bothering me and I was able to put my day to day life back into perspective again.  It’s hard to explain how it feels, but how I felt after my first session was an incredible feeling of release and relief. Havening is such a gentle therapy technique that I highly recommend.”
