Benefits of Havening Techniques Training

Results you can expect for your practice:

I 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.

  • Protection from vicarious traumatization for those therapists working with trauma. Trauma will always affect the practitioner 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 treatment protocols for whatever the issue is you are working with.
  • Imagine being able 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 to Expect from Havening Training

Havening Training is a content packed but yet fun filled experience over either- 2 days, or 4 modules spread over four days. The learning environment is supportive and friendly.

Expect to learn about the neuroscience behind Havening as well as learn and practice the techniques involved.

You may receive home study modules in the run-up to your training with videos and articles to read. I recommend you use these, but if you cannot make the time in the run-up to the training, you can watch and read afterwards, so don't worry too much! 

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.

Become a Certified Havening Techniques Practitioner through the Certification Process 

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

The initial training will teach the basic techniques. The certification process teaches more about how to master these techniques and integrate them into your practice.

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).

For those going through certification with me, I will provide regular support via Zoom for practice of the techniques (so that you have some case studies ready to go from these practice sessions alone), a space for Q&A and extra tuition. 

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).

About Me

If we haven't met yet, I am Susanna Sweeney. I took my first Havening Training in April 2018 with Dr. Steven Ruden. I became certified the following month and since then have worked 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!

Who are Havening Trainings Suitable for?

At the moment, Havening Trainings are 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.

If you are already a  people practitioner, you could benefit from HT training in most roles where you either come in contact with trauma, or want to build resilience with your clients. The Havening community already has the following professional groups represented 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
  • Social workers and foster parents, social care workers working with the homeless or vulnerable 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

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.
