Surprised by the results

I was initially skeptical of Havening being that it was coming from a different perspective then I was used to, but I was pleasantly surprised by the results. I received a lot of freedom. Initially I tried some on my own, but working directly with Sofia was far more effective. She is a very knowledgeable, experienced person that truly cares and wants to help. I’d highly recommend anyone to her. ~ Jack, Scotland

Positive Change

Sofia has a firm and compassionate way of creating safety in the therapeutic relationship. I had a clear understanding of the neuroscience of Havening and possible outcomes of this form of practice. 
Personally I recommend Sofia as a safe clinician and found that in our brief session it has become a catalyst of positive change.
Thank you Sofia ~ Natalie, Perth, Western Australia.

Painful Memories

Wow, this is AMAAAAAZING! In my first session of Havening, I presented 2 painful memories - the first only a 4 or 5 on the pain scale, the second a 9 or 10. One hour later and all the pain attached to those memories seems to have gone, and with it a whole load of emotional baggage. Without going into the science behind it, it should free me up to live life in a very different way, and I am excited!
I highly recommend Sofia if you're interested in this technique. Thank you so much Sofia! ~ Hilary, Spain

Brain Fog

I came to the session with brain fog, known to some people as brain fatigue. For me brain fog is the opposite of feeling calm, optimistic, motivated and levelheaded.  As I started the session I was aware of a lack of focus, of reduced mental acuity, of high levels of irritability with a background buzzing with anxiety. This was an all too familiar feeling.

I had been told that brain fog is rooted in a lifestyle that promotes inflammation and hormonal imbalances and is exacerbated by stress. I had read Jeanne D. Andrus book Think Again! where she talks about the positive impact that Havening has on reversing brain fog and I was keen to see for myself.

It was great to meet Sofia who immediately made me feel at ease. Her thorough assessment was carried out with kindness and humour. She explained Havening theory, how the session would work and that I was in the driving seat.  I felt completely safe and taken care of and as soon as we began the session I knew Sofia was a skilled and competent practitioner.  By the end of the session my brain fog had gone.  Not only that I had been able to come out of the session with an action plan to help me move forward.

I cannot recommend Sofia and Havening highly enough. What a joy to have my brain back and be headache free. ~ Kirsty, England

Heights and Spiders

In my session with Sofia, we were focusing on my fear of heights and spiders that has been with me from a young age. Straight away Sofia made me feel comfortable and I wasn't reluctant in any way to share my fears and stories with her. The Havening was very relaxing and I felt that I could open up and be honest with Sofia throughout the whole session. Even after one session with Sofia, I feel a lot less worried about heights and spiders and have been able to deal with both of them in a more relaxed and calm way. Thank you for a great session and for making me feel so relaxed and welcome ~ Tracey, Scotland
