I use Havening at some stage with all of my clients. I thought long and hard before attempting this Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) demonstration. I knew I would only have about five minutes, which is much less time than I would ordinarily require. I decided to take a deep breath and just trust the flow to go with me. I am pleased that I did.
This is just another tribute to the power of Havening. To be honest I was stunned too. I was confident I could bring about some change, but to move from her stress level of 10 to 1 or even less in six minutes was quite remarkable by any standards.
I am pleased that my whole presentation was filmed because otherwise we might wonder whether we were all victims of mass hallucination.
A psychiatrist came to talk to me after I finished. She said, “You have done in five minutes what I cannot do in five years, if at all. Why is this technique not used by psychiatrists?”
This was a good question and I do not know the answer to it. All I can say is that any psychiatrist who wants to talk to me will be welcome.
As an update I can report that Ashley attended my recent meetup group in London. There has been no change since I last saw her, and she is very much happier to be able to get on with the rest of her life now. Her husband asks her every day how she feels, because he cannot believe that he is living with a new person, or rather the person he knew before this dreadful incident happened.
If you know someone with PTSD please feel free to share this post with them.
