New technique helps curing anxieties and phobias By Julia Czerwonatis

Frances Lamb is New Zealand’s only certified practitioner to use a new technique that helps people with anxieties and phobias. Havening is a method designed to change the brain to de-traumatise the memory and remove its negative effects from both our psyche and body. Frances’s journey to becoming a life coach and havening practitioner started after she broke her leg during a skiing accident in Australia. Being immobile and recovering from her injuries, Frances began to study. “I studied NLP, which is short for neuro-linguistic programming,” Frances explains. “NLP is looking at how language can change the brain. I qualified as a master coach for NLP while I also trained in hypnosis.” During her research, Frances stumbles across the work of Ron Ruden, a US-American neuroscientist who, after 10 years of study, came out with a new therapy to help

people with anxieties. Ron had released a book, a manual for his technique called havening which Frances bought out of interest. “So one day I had a client who was afraid of flying,” the Island Bay resident recalls. “I didn’t know the havening science nor had I ever tried doing it. I suggested it to the client and they agreed to try so we simply followed the handbook.” A few weeks later Frances received messages from her client while they were on holiday. “It blew my mind. They went on the plane and none of her anxieties were triggered. They used to be terrified of flying, and now this very simple application had this profound impact on their life.” Frances instantly signed up for a training course to become a certified havening techniques practitioner. “Havening delinks the emotional response from the traumatic memory using delta waves which our brain produces in deep, non-REM sleep,” Frances explains. Through stroking motions applied on the face, arms or palms, delta waves can be produced while the person is awake. “It’s a breakthrough in the field of trauma therapy,” Frances says. Havening practitioners around the world are specialists in different fields and use the method to improve therapy results with patients and clients.  Frances will organise a two-day workshop with her mentor Tony Burgess in mid-August for people who are interested in becoming havening practitioners.
