Dr Robin Youngson, Certified Havening Techniques Trainer and Anaesthetic Specialist.

Havening Techniques is a novel, neuroscience-based practice for rapidly deleting traumatic memories and treating a wide range of conditions including anxiety disorders, PTSD, phobias, depression, relationship problems, functional disorders and chronic pain. A detailed molecular mechanism explains how traumatic encoding in the amygdala can be precisely targeted and then rapidly erased by removing receptors from the postsynaptic membrane.1

A randomized, controlled trial has shown that Havening can reverse Type D personality trait (negative affect and social inhibition - chronic illness prone) and substantially reduce cortisol and blood pressure one month after a single session of Havening.2 When chronic pain is encoded as part of emotional trauma, deleting the traumatic memory can rapidly cure chronic pain.

This intensive, weekend training lays the foundations of science and practical techniques. The combination of hands-on training and experiential learning has been described as life-changing by many participants. Those who wish to become a Certified Havening Practitioner will need to complete a period of supervised practice and pass a science exam.

The presenter, Dr Robin Youngson, is a full-time trauma therapist and trainer, after a 35-year career as an anaesthetist and healthcare leader. Robin is internationally renowned for his work on compassionate healthcare and was given the Chair’s Award by the New Zealand Medical Association in 2016, for outstanding contribution to the health of NZ.
