"Working with Derek has been absolutely life-changing for both myself and my son. Havening has given us the most amazing avenue to heal on a level I was not aware of and I've been in the healing field for almost 30 years."

Derek Greenwood is a highly skilled, compassionate, and heart-based certified trainer and practitioner of Havening Techniques®

Utterly dedicated to helping his clients achieve the highest level of emotional and physical healing in the time they share, as well as a devoted mentor to his students who come to train in this powerful heart and client-centered technique.

Derek is a veteran of the British Army, serving a distinguished career for 17 years including 9 operational tours of duty before being medically discharged with PTSD & Somatisation.

He was soon to realise that there was no help once he’d walked through the gates for the last time, to that end he had to find his own way back, to take the voyage of rediscovery of self and reclaim his health, and life happiness if he was to survive.

Havening Techniques® as Derek will tell you has been the key determining factor in that process and a big part of why he loves and champions this powerful technique as he does.

He’s as you would say walked through the fires and made it through to the other side with a heart filled with love and compassion for those who are experiencing difficult times in their life and is there to walk that path of healing and recovery with you offering a safe nurturing environment where you can relax, heal, and grow knowing you are fully supported.

Testimonial: "life became more effortless and flowing"

I had 3 sessions of havening with Derek and the results were profound, this was a modality I had not tried but I found it easy, comforting, effortless and empowering.

Derek is an excellent and caring and empathic practitioner, he listens with no judgment and you feel safe in his presence to open up and allow the effects of the havening to occur. He is very intuitive and guides you into a space of what I call deep self-healing.

After the sessions, I had big shifts and my life and the external began to change, life became more effortless and flowing and things began to fall into place, even breakthroughs started to happen as I had cleared out the inner blocks with these havening sessions.

I can highly recommend Derek as a unique individual with a heart of gold who is dedicated to moving you forward into self-empowerment and a thriving life.

A feeling of joy radiating from me

I had no idea what Havening was when I booked the session, but I am pleased that I did. Talking to Dez I was relaxed and comfortable, the technique is easy, fun, and it worked incredibly well for me.
I felt that a load had been lifted from me and I was buzzing, a feeling of joy radiating from me and my eyes were sparkling, These feelings lasted a few days, I was very productive and made decisions that I had been pondering over, also some new opportunities were offered to me. Even on zoom meetings, people noticed a change in me and asked what had happened.
If I felt my mood slipping, Dez had suggested that I recall how I felt after the session and Haven on those feelings, I did this and it worked, I felt happy again, and this has been ongoing.
I am truly thankful that I booked this session with Dez to try the Havening technique, it is brilliant, and I can honestly recommend this to everyone.

Truly blown my mind!

I’ve had 2 havening sessions with Derek so far, and both times the results have well and truly blown my mind! I can not believe that something so gentle, and so simple can change your life in such a huge way.

I have been working on the fear of losing the people closest to me, due to the sudden death of my father in 2010, and I’ve been really struggling with this for a long time, and after just ONE session I was really shocked to find that this fear has now dissolved.

Derek has the most beautiful energy and is really easy to work with, he is kind, and sensitive to your needs during a session, and I felt really safe the whole time. I will definitely be booking in with him again, and I highly recommend that others do too! He can help with practically anything that you are struggling with!

Derek is a warm, caring person who is so passionate about his work and helping people, I really felt that throughout our sessions. I felt totally at ease within his presence and although I was a little sceptical at first to whether this therapy would work for me I can definitely say it did, I felt the benefits after the first session. I feel so much more relaxed and less anxious it feels almost like a Miracle. He has given me many tools to continue my work and feel equipped to face future trials and tribulations. Derek provided a service that went above and beyond what I expected.
