Benefits you can Expect from Havening Techniques Training

We have seen incredible results with Havening Techniques in client work.

As Havening enables us to work directly with the traumatic base of presenting symptoms in a safe and effective manner, issues that would otherwise take a long time to process or would be impossible to get to the root of are resolved in a short space of time.

Havening is also a fantastic tool for building resilience and confidence into the future, and coaches in particular will be interested in that side of the modality.

Havening offers:

  • Protection from vicarious traumatization for those therapists working with trauma. Trauma will always affect the practitioner somewhat but this is much reduced with the use of Havening.

  • A flexible tool box that will blend in seamlessly with whatever other therapy modalities or coaching stream you are already using in your practice.
  • Imagine getting reliable and consistent results in your client work.
  • Imagine being able to achieve these amazing results in a short space of time.
  • Clear and simple treatment protocols so that you will always know what to do.
  • Havening enables you to work with your clients online- delivering the same great results as face to face.
  • Be surrounded by a supportive community to help you develop and grow as a  Havening Practitioner.

What you can Expect from Havening Training

  • Havening Training is a content packed experience.
  • The learning environment is supportive, welcoming and friendly.
  • Expect to learn about the neuroscience behind Havening as well as learn and practice the techniques involved.
  • You will receive video recordings of the Havening training which you can review at your convenience later.
  • While the training teaches all the Havening techniques, we highly recommend going through the certification process, too for extra teaching content, more in-depth learning and understanding of HT processes. 
  • See what participants from my previous Havening trainings say about their experience.

Why Certification Matters

After taking the basic Havening training you can use the techniques to work with your clients.

You are not  permitted to advertise "Havening" being part of your practice in any of your promotional materials, however, and you cannot call yourself a "Havening practitioner". 

To be able to call yourself a Certified Havening Practitioner and use the term "Havening" in your promotion, you will have to go through the certification process and qualify as a "Certified Havening Practitioner".

What you can Expect from the Certification Process

  • The initial training will teach you the basic techniques.
  • During the certification process, you will complete 32 case studies including two on video, a science exam, and if you are based in the US- an ethics exam (which is charged for separately by Havening HQ).
  • The case studies and the detailed feedback you will receive on those will help you learn the techniques in-depth and integrate them into your practice to your and your client's best advantage.
  • For those going through certification with me, I will provide extra support via Zoom. (Not every trainer provides this extra support).
  • These extra sessions will focus on practice of the techniques,  a space for Q&A, case discussions and some extra curricular tuition as well as an opportunity to meet other students to exchange sessions with for your own personal development.
  • Upon completion of certification, you can call yourself a "Certified Havening Practitioner", (which is renewable annually at a fee of $99 which also gives you a practitioner listing on the official Havening.org website). You get access to promotional materials and can use the term "Havening" in your promotional materials.

Who is Havening Trainings Suitable for?

If you are already a  people practitioner, you can benefit from HT training in most roles where you either come in contact with either trauma, toxic emotions or chronic pain- or want to build resilience with your clients and prepare them for their ideal future.

The Havening community already has practitioners from the following professional groups who are all making active use of HT in their work:

  • Doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists, psychiatrists
  • Psychotherapists, counselors and psychologists
  • First responders such as paramedics and fire brigade and those supporting first responders
  • Social workers and foster parents, social care workers working with the homeless or vulnerable groups such as refugees
  • Hypnotherapists, NLP practitioners, alternative health practitioners of all persuasions
  • Coaches, such as life coaches, transformational coaches, trauma coaches, also performance and executive coaches
  • Teachers, child care workers and others working in the education space

At the moment, Havening Training is open to anyone with an interest in learning the modality.

The training weekend alone won't make you a therapist, but can provide you with a first stepping stone to becoming one.

Havening Training Online

I continue to provide Havening Training online.

You can expect the following benefits from training online:

  • Work from the comfort of your own home.
  • Learn experientially how to practice with clients online, opening up a whole new way of doing therapy. (I do all my therapeutic work online.)
  • Savings on travel expenses and accommodation cost.
  • You can fit the training into your life easily.
  • No need for cumbersome and costly PCR tests and mask wearing.
  • Stay 100 percent safe.
  • Your training will be recorded so that you can review the recording later.

About Me

If we haven't met yet, I am Susanna Sweeney, MSc, MBACP. My background is in a 25 year career in the trauma field.

I took my first Havening Training in April 2018 with Dr. Steven Ruden. I became certified the following month and since then have been working hard on mastering the techniques involved and integrating them with my existing skill set in psychotherapeutic trauma work.

Since qualifying as a Certified Havening Practitioner I have facilitated on five Havening Technique trainings, three with the founders of Havening, Dr. Ronald and Dr. Steven Ruden, and twice with Tony Burgess and Julie French. Assisting on these trainings has further enabled me to hone my skills.

I am super excited and proud to be able to now offer Havening training and share my passion for this amazing toolbox grounded in neuroscience!

Book an upcoming Havening Training today, watch your practice take off and never look back!

I look forward to accompanying you on this exciting journey.
