I believe in a holistic approach to healing and all areas of life where mind, body and spirit are all interconnected. Happiness is within everyone's reach. My approach means that beyond my technical skills, I'm largely assisted by my intuition and guides whilst working with clients. 

I'm passionate about helping people achieve their life purpose which brings peace, harmony and joy to their lives.

We all carry traumas from the past. It's called life..! Just being a human being... Some of these are relatively trivial. But some of the things that happen to us are absolutely devastating and can be crippling physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. If left untreated, they often tend to get worse with the passage of time. So it's not just the big "Traumas" that Havening addresses, it's the cumulative small taumas that really have a detrimental impact on people's general health and well-being. This is where Havening can have an enormous impact.


What is Havening?

Havening is a psychosensory therapy that is designed to alter the brain in order to de-traumatize a negative or distressing memory & remove it's negative effe ts from our body & psyche.

Havening is an all-emcompassing therapy typically swift that can really reach the heart of people's issues. For most it facilitates an instant shift, for others it trakes a little longer. The process is very powerful on various levels, triggering biological, neurological, psychological & physiological changes within the body.

The Science Bit...

The science behind Havening means that coupled with gentle distraction techniques & touch, delta waves produced in the brain can remove the receptors off the neurons in the amyglada, which means it switches off or delinks the emotional or physical distress within the person.

So any stimulus or causes that was activating that phobia, that panic attack or that stressor can't activate it anymore because these receptors are are now completely gone for good.

Basically at the core of this science is the ability to erase or remove the emotional component of a traumatically encoded event or stressor. We are basically altering the neurochemical pathway of the brain.

Thank you Alex..

Hi Alex, 26th November 2018
Thank you for the Havening sessions where you worked on my sore shoulder. I had a healthy amount of scepticism going into the session, I have sought various therapies in the past, for which I've had mixed results.

I found your friendly approach very settling and the healing process very interesting. I particularly like that you use your healing instincts to compliment the Havening process.

Since our sessions, my shoulder has been almost pain free! So, in my opinion, Havening is a great therapy and would certainly do it again.

Kind regards,

Personal Reference Alexandra Simoncini

To whom it may concern Monday, 26th November 2018

I have great pleasure, and no hesitation, in providing feedback on my experience of Alexandra Simoncini, both as a Therapist and indeed on a personal level beyond her role as a Havening Professional.

I have known Alex, since June 2016, and during that time I have found her to be an open, kind, calming and level headed individual who demonstrates great integrity, insight and empathy.

Alex has been a great source of support to myself and to my family during a testing time both medically and also through great change in our lives.

During my healing sessions with Alex she created a peaceful and calming therapeutic environment which placed me at ease immediately and enabled me to be more open and trusting regarding past and present trauma - including anxiety during childhood, post natal depression, marital separation as well as ongoing fears for my health due to a pancreatic tumour with major surgery approaching.

Whilst I am a great believer in Psychotherapy, principally Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I had never read about or experienced Havening Therapy previously. Alex took a good amount of time to explain the Havening process, likely emotional responses and how we would close the session which was incredibly helpful.

Alex reassured me throughout the sessions that we could stop at any time if I was uncomfortable and as such it has been clear that I am in a ‘safe pair of hands’.

Whilst the sessions stimulated an emotional response from me, they were cathartic and caring, and I experienced a sense of relief and reduction in anxiety as we completed the treatment.

Following the treatment, Alex asked if she may contact me later in the day to discuss any emotions or questions I may have the following the treatment, and she kindly made a point of dropping by my home.

Aside from therapy, Alex has provided ongoing emotional and practical support relating to both my recent abdominal surgery as well as my marital separation.

In summary I would recommend Alex as a therapist and friend who demonstrates the following attributes ;

Insightfulness and cautious with guidance
Integrity and humanity
Non judgemental listener
Emotional intelligence
Strong, and straight-forward in feedback
Supportive and caring

Please do not hesitate to contact if I can provide any further feedback on Alex.

With kind regards,

I am very grateful for the wonderful work you do...

Dear Alex 22nd November 2018

I wanted to let you know how well my leg has been doing since our Havening session.

As you know I broke my leg and ruptured the tendons in my right knee in November 2016. I had to undergo an operation to reconstruct the tendons and after that had had constant pain. It was affecting my daily life and I was living on pain medication and been woken by the pain at night. I was not able to walk very far and stairs were a no-go. This despite constant physio and hydrotherapy. It just seemed to not be getting any better, and I had resolved myself to the fact that I may always been in pain.

But after our Havening sessions the constant pain in my knee seemed to resolve within a few days. Within a week I was off all pain medication and I no longer was being woken in pain. My leg has since gotten stronger and I have been able to build the strength as I was not in so much pain.

I am now able to walk and far distances and have started taking the stairs at work on a daily basis. I have also been able to buy a bike and enjoy cycling with my 3 kids.

I am very grateful for the wonderful work you did on my leg and hope you can offer others healing with your gift of Havening.

Kind regards
Dr. Lauren Davies
