What Other Therapists Say About Stephen’s Training:

The 2 day training was excellent and his teaching of the professional applications of Havening allowed me to see changes and progress in clients I have worked with for a long time who were stuck.

I’ve been practicing 31 years and am certified in EMDR, level 1,2,3 trained in BrainSpotting, certified in ART, and advanced trained in EMDR and the Flash Technique.

Bar none, Havening has been the most effective and most tolerated and appreciated by clients and myself.

Thanks so much for being an excellent trainer and equipping me for this excellent trauma resource.

Highly recommend!        

Karen Jarvis, Psychotherapist, EMDR, Brainspotting

What a valuable training Havening Techniques is and Stephen is a outstanding trainer. If you get the chance, I recommend working with him.

He is accessible, positive and very knowledgeable.

I’m glad I got to learn Havening from the best.

The results I get with Havening are amazing! 

Jantine Stam, Psychologist, EMDR, Brainspotting

I attended Stephen’s Havening training in October, 2022 and was so excited by his presentation and the modality itself that I decided to complete the certification process. I am an advanced level practitioner in EMDR, Brainspotting and CRM and I have achieved really good results with these therapies in the past.

I can honestly report that I am using Havening almost exclusively now because it is easier and faster for my clients! I am getting amazing results with anxiety and trauma based issues/disorders.

I would like to thank Stephen so much for his excellent training, mentorship and support. His knowledge and skill as a trainer and Havening practitioner are truly inspirational. Thank you Stephen!

The initial study recently completed by King’s College London shows the remarkable effectiveness of this extraordinary set of processes.

This is not to be confused with other psycho-sensory techniques, TFT, EMDR, etc.

Whilst they are very good, Havening is light years ahead!

If you want to be an excellent therapist you can’t afford not to learn this breakthrough approach.”  Paul McKenna
