Hi, I am Amanda Looker,
A little about my journey to find the best therapy for YOU.
I first studied holistic therapies, in the 1990’s quickly adding Sports Therapies to my list, and then 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 in 2010.
Still, l felt there was a missing link. That link 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 I had felt 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 first few to train with the developer of The Havening Techniques®, Neuroscientist Dr. Ron Ruden MD, fellow developer Dr. Steven Ruden, along with
Paul McKenna Ph.D. and Kevin Laye. Becoming one of only a few licensed practitioners in the world able to offer this groundbreaking 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 bad back (slip disc), and shoulder injury (rotator cuff). 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. My back was a slightly slower process, I realised how much my back had improved when l was trying to locate something under the bed, something l would never have even tried to previously do.
Having been a Sports Therapist this blew me away, so often l saw people with chronic pain, and although l helped them, their pain invariably returned, mine gives me a slight warning very occasionally if l overdo something. Though that is probably more to do with age.
My training with the developer Steven Blake in OldPain2Go®. now enables me to help those who are living with Chronic Pain, using a therapy that doesn’t require contact, I am now able to help people online, turn their pain down or even be pain-free.
I now focus on using my knowledge and skills, helping people who have been through traumatic and stressful experiences, and those who are suffering Chronic Pain enabling people to lead their best life possible.
What is Havening?
Havening is a psychosensory technique, that uses sensory stimuli, (sound, touch, sight taste, and smell) to affect psychological, and emotional wellbeing. A very powerful group of techniques that can be used to treat the consequences of encoded traumatic or stressful memories.
Havening & Paul McKenna PhD
“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 psychosensory techniques, TFT, EMDR, etc. Whilst they are very good, Havening is light years ahead.”
