Our Approach 

In our wider therapeutic work, Julie and I use a rich array of powerful and effective tools. For working with people suffering from past trauma, the main tools that we now use are Havening Techniques® and Neuro Linguistic Programming. 
 
You can learn more about Havening Techniques® at the official website of the originators' (Drs Ron and Steven Ruden) here. You will find profiles for myself (Tony Burgess) and my partner (Julie French) on that site in the list of Certified Practitioners.  
 
Please note that any therapist offering Havening Techniques that does not appear in the list of Practitioners on the originator's website has not yet completed the approved training and assessment programme required for them to become a Certified Havening Techniques Practitioner. We strongly suggest that you check on the originator's website that any therapist offering Havening Techniques is indeed a Certified Havening Techniques Practitioner before you book an appointment.  
 
'Havening Techniques' is a revolutionary approach being used to help people who are suffering from trauma, PTSD, phobias, anxieties, stress responses and many other issues. Here is a video clip that will guide you on how to clear the negative effects of more minor negative events for yourself.  
 
When Julie or I work with you, we'll always treat you as the totally unique, wonderful and resourceful human being that you are. Our approach is always to work to meet the specific needs of each and every client. 
 
Essentially our job is to help de-link specific mental and emotional connections within the encoding in your brain. It is this unhelpful encoding that is responsible for you ‘re-living’ or ‘re-triggering’ traumatic or troubling experiences from the past (recent or distant). This encoding needs to be changed so you can become free from the past and adopt much better responses in life. Most people don’t know how to do this for themselves. We know how to help you, effectively and usually surprisingly quickly, in a blend to suit your specific needs. 
 
We work to free you from your past trauma experience(s) as quickly as possible. You deserve that! If it's one very specific trauma experience that needs working on, the job can very often be completed in just one or two sessions. If there are many ‘strands’ or 'layers' to a person’s past trauma experiences it may sometimes take longer to de-link all of the connections completely. Many people also benefit from some positive, future-focused, personal growth work after the trauma(s) have been removed. This may be something for you to consider, especially if you have carried the effects of trauma around with you for many years. Carrying traumatic encoding around for many years can sometimes mean it has affected your sense of who you are and so some 'rebuilding' of your self-concept beyond the trauma-clearing may be required. Sessions can be held in Stafford (Staffordshire, UK) or can be done via video call (eg via skype) if distance makes this the most useful option. At certain times of the year we can also offer an option for you to join us in southern Spain for some intensive one-to-one work combined with a short break in a beautiful coastal environment.
