Before the session I was sent some pre session questions and was asked to journal when I experienced the phobias. This went over about two weeks before the session. During this time I started to get really aware of what I was doing. I sent the pre session notes before the session. On meeting James I felt completely at ease and had an open mind as to the session as I’d not done this before.
I felt very buzzy straight after the session – very energised and with some nervous energy. I felt I had experienced the release of the past phobia and was just really excited about getting back in the car and no longer feeling apprehensive about journey’s, panic when cars were driving behind me and being able to use an escalator on my own.
At the end of the session we even went to the nearest tube station and James travelled behind me as I went down the escalator on my own not holding on to anyone. There was no hesitation I stepped on. Then I did the next one and then went up two on my own, again with James travelling behind me.
It was a few days before I would test being out in my car, and when I did I felt like the cars were much further away from me in my rear view mirror. The pressure of traffic behind me had gone. I also found myself smiling and feeling very happy as I was driving, which I’d visualised during the technique.
I didn’t know much about Havening before meeting James, however was interested and wanted to experience a new treatment for the two very limiting life phobias I’d had for a long time. The process was extremely fast and a little strange in a good way, and then when James explained it all after, it completely made sense.
I would say the technique has worked in that I can now step on and use an escalator and I no longer panic when a vehicle is on the road behind me. I felt at first I needed to test this process and do the two things I’d avoided so much, however in reality it’s more just about accepting and getting on, so I’d say this technique while it gives a fast release it’s not necessarily just about instant results, and you are taught how to use the process to do it for yourself in future events. It was a great pleasure to work with James, very professional, easy to understand and his office in London was easy to get to from main railway stations into London.
