Overwhelming Panic Response to Family Illness
Shortly after the birth of our second child I awoke at 5am to my partner having a prolonged tonic-clonic seizure. The experience affected me such that in the ensuing months as we struggled to cope with more seizures on top of everything that goes with having a second child I became a nervous wreck. The slightest delay in her speech or hearing a bump when she was upstairs would instantly make me feel physically sick. My normal rational thought process was being hijacked and it was affecting how I dealt with life in general (work, kids, etc.).
A friend had recently seen Louise and he recommend I try a session. Louise very deftly moved from our initial introductions into the havening session proper and before I knew it I was right back at the moment of the first seizure, something I hadn’t been able to think about since it occurred nine months earlier.
In what seemed like no time at all (but was I think at least an hour) I was able to think about and talk about the seizure without any hesitation.
As I write this it has been over a month and I have had no further physical reactions to anything. I feel normal again. I still don’t get the science of it but my partner and I (and the kids no doubt) are very glad to have the old me back.
Thank you Louise. CG Surrey September 2017
Stress / Confidence
I went to see Louise Carmi about a year ago when I was undergoing family changes which were extremely stressful. I found the sessions helpful in significantly reducing my stress and anxiety, which prior to our initial meeting were unbearable. They also increased my confidence, so that I was able to deal with the situations that arose and the constant fear of threat. Her work enabled me to realise that we have a choice about the life we lead and gave me the opportunity to say 'no' when negative thoughts and actions attempt to dominate day to day life. I am so thankful for the support she gave me. I am certain that my circumstances would have spiralled out of control had Louise not taught me how to regain my inner strength, voice and empowerment.

I know this may sound strange. I had a severe frog phobia for about 50 years. This has affected me to such an extent that I was hypervigilant when going out into anywhere I may see a frog and especially in my huge garden. If was not only outside the house : if I was watching a TV programme and a stream or pond appeared, I had to immediately change channels or switch off , in fear of seeing a frog.
I had one session of Havening with Louise Carmi in November 2013 and I could not believe how something so simple could work so quickly. My fear of frogs has gone.
In May 2014 I moved to my dream house, which has a stream running through the garden. I saw a big fat frog in a nearby road this week, and I did not run away screaming !
Thank you Louise.

I went to see Louise for Havening, primarily to help with c pain, and it soon became apparent that I would not only benefit in this area , but would gain so much more from the sessions. My Rheumatologist diagnosed Psoriatic Arthritis which began about 10 years ago. Within only 3 sessions of Havening I found I suddenly had tools to help with managing the pain, which led to me halving my pain medication and sometimes being pain and medication free.
The Havening created a wonderful sense of relaxation and calm. Additionally it made a significant difference to stress and anxiety levels, helping with confidence and crucially allowing me to move forward many areas of my life. I would like to say Thank you so much to Louise for the Havening treatments, help, support and advice. I am very grateful for how this has helped me so far and I'm sure it will continue to do so in the future, thank you.

Grief / Distress
I first met Louise 21 years ago when my baby died of cot death syndrome and had a lot of support from her. In the past 2 years I have faced difficult personal situations that have resulted in me re-living some of the previous traumatic events in my life. I asked Louise for help. I had one afternoon session of Havening and found it amazing that I could let go of the turmoil in my head. It helped me feel much more calm and able to cope. It is hard to explain how it works – it just does!

I first saw Louise for NLP sessions in 2012. She helped me cope with a very stressful situation at home in which I was having panic attacks and I felt I couldn't cope any more!!
The treatment gave me strength and I was able to deal with my life.
I've had a few follow up sessions using NLP and Havening in the past year and feel like a new person who sees life through a different perspective.
I have become very interested in Havening and NLP myself since being treated. It has changed my life . I have recently attended an NLP seminar with Paul McKenna and Richard Bandler.

Once again, thank you so much for helping me change life's course to a better, emotionally healthier and happier direction.
Havening has made a huge impact on my life- from a lost girl with dreams but without the means to get there, hampered with self doubt, negativity and much lack of confidence, Havening has given me the tools to achieve a positive, happier state of being with total self belief, enabling new opportunities to be seized and acted upon. In such little time my life has changed dramatically. This is the most important and significant positive transformation of my life. Thank you again so very, very much.

Emetophobia (causing absence from university)
I'm not scared of being sick anymore! Well, I haven't felt sick since we met, but I'm not bringing it upon myself anymore, which was the main thing! I've also not been feeling so anxious, which is another positive! In our session I remember you saying that 'they were just thoughts', which really stuck, as my thoughts are just thoughts and are not reality, so the negative ones I might as well ignore. I have also been doing some of the self-havening, since it seems to relax me almost instantaneously. We have had a problem with mice on my floor the past week as well, and a few of the girls who had mice in their room were scared to go back in (which is understandable). I showed them the self-havening leaflet and we all did it together, which was very funny but it was also very beneficial, and we were all laughing about how weird it actually was! Thank you again!
