Hi, I am Amanda Looker,
I first studied holistic therapies in the 1990’s quickly adding Sports Therapies, progressing to qualify as a trainer and an assessor.
I loved the holistic approach and my passion to explore the mind body connection lead me to study Hypnotherapy, Coaching, NLP and CBT.
Yet, there was still a link missing. That part of the puzzle came when a colleague invited me to experience a phenomenal new therapy. The Havening Techniques® (Amygdala Deportation Therapy).
As soon as l experienced the effect and power of The Havening Techniques®. I understood what had been missing the link between the mind and the body. I enrolled on the first course available, and was privileged to be one of the few to train with the developer of The Havening Techniques®, Neuroscientist Dr Ron Ruden MD. Along with Paul McKenna and Kevin Laye. Becoming one of only a few licensed practitioners in the world able to offer this ground- breaking therapy and the 1st Licensed Practitioner in West Sussex, UK.
As l moved away from the physical side of therapies, due to stiff joints, especially in my hands, a back (slip disc) and shoulder injury. I was recommended to try another very new therapy. ‘OldPain2Go’ the success of that treatment, l walked in, only to be able to raise my arm, painfully l might add to 45 degrees. l left raising it straight up without pain. Having been a sports therapist this blew me away, so often l saw people with old injuries and although l helped them, sometimes they would return.
l then trained with the developer Steven Blake in OldPain2Go®. Enabling me to help others with Chronic Pain.
I now focus on using my knowledge to help people who have been through traumatic and stressful experiences, and those who are suffering chronic pain enabling people to lead the best life possible.
What is Havening?
With over 25 years experience within the complementary and holistic health area & having the privilege of training with the creator and Co creator, Dr Ronald Ruden and Dr Steven Ruden, of the breakthrough Havening Techniques® alongside Mr Paul Mckenna, I became one of the first licensed practitioners in the world able to offer this ground- breaking therapy. I can help you overcome emotional traumas such as PSTD, childhood/life traumas, bullying, victim of a crime, phobias, relationship issues, physical/psychological abuse or even guilt and anger. I recognise that, some issues may be difficult or painful to discuss, this is the amazing part with ‘The Havening Technique®’ That painful issues doesn’t need to be brought up again and again, in fact if the pain is not possible to be verbalised then I can still work with you. Helping you to move on, spending less of your valuable time reflecting or acting on the past, and enabling you to move forward to focus on a more positive future.
Havening & Paul McKenna
“Havening, also known as Amygdala Depotentiation Therapy (ADT), is going to change the face of therapy across the world. What used to take months to cure can now be achieved in minutes in most cases… PTSD, trauma, pain, depression and many more disorders. The initial study recently completed by Kings College London shows the remarkable effectiveness of this extraordinary set of processes. This is not to be confused with other psycho sensory techniques, TFT, EMDR, etc. Whilst they are very good, Havening is light years ahead.”
