Havening helped dissociate the pain with the past traumatic event

Ruth was very relaxing and put me at ease by explaining the techniques involved in the coaching session. I loved that it's a simple technique. It didn't feel like a difficult session - I'd set my self up with a lot of tissues, just incase I got upset, but I didn't need them. It is a really positive experience and helps to dissociate the pain with the event. It's now just something that happened rather than what is constantly being lived through.
