Start now, and enjoy learning at your own speed and developing new skills on a course designed for you by me, Carol. I was one of the first five Havening practitioners and trainers, and I love how practitioners use the concepts and techniques in many disciplines. I recognise that it's helpful for you to be able to ask questions that relate to your particular field, and working one-to-one makes this possible. People tell me that 'I make complex information simple to understand and useful for practice'. You may want to work quickly, or you may want to use the full course length of ten months to fulfil the various stages towards being recommended for certification from Havening HQ. You can start studying and join our group of Havening enthusiasts straight away (the starting dates given here are simply to honour this form format). Paymusefulent for this training can be made in instalments or a single payment, it's your choice.

The Havening Techniques® are psychosensory methods that use the sensory input of touch, imagination, and attention to facilitate learning and create change. Developed from the most modern neuroscience, Havening is being used to increase creativity, calm, and resilience. Practitioners also share Havening to help people become free of unwanted memories, fears and emotional and chronic pain. The breadth of application is wide.

It's fascinating to learn how Havening works and consider the mechanics of neuroplasticity, how we learn, how we respond to risk, our survival system and how fast change occurs. And to learn about how concepts like CASE and EMLI are helpful for practice. Find out about 'best practice', experience Havening (through swapping sessions with other Haveners) and learn to use the techniques elegantly, creatively and safely. Gain knowledge and build your skills as you complete the science review, reflect on and discuss your experiences and case studies, and film yourself working. This training is tailor-made, and the sequence of your course will be structured to reflect this. 

Live video calls with Carol covering the science and use of the various techniques and related skills. I enjoy making the science accessible, skill-related and valuable for the practice of Havening. On the course, there are opportunities to practice self-Havening, explore and become skilled at using the many Havening Techniques with other students before working with your clients. Our informal group is active every day, you can ask questions, and meet others, and I often share related learning aids, articles, papers and ideas. Access the educational portals at www.havening.org and www.psychosensoryacademy.com, read the Primer, and watch videos of sessions, workshops and practice groups. Read posts, ask questions and engage with Dr Ronald and Steven Ruden, other trainers, practitioners and students on the Havening Facebook forum. There are also practice groups, meet-ups, conferences (annual and recorded material) and advanced courses as well as an international session swap thread.

Havening HQ provides practice group sessions to help support you on your path to certification.
