"You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending."
Our lives are a journey and I began mine working with children in a nursery. None of that experience prepared me for the huge learning curve that I embarked upon when I first began working with children who had experienced trauma within the Lincolnshire Fostering Service.
My name is Claire and Havening Therapy has opened up another realm of possibilities for healing from trauma. I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Parenting, a level one in Theraplay, a level 2 in Counselling Skills and my life goal since beginning to work in fostering 15 years ago is to help children to heal from their trauma and stop the cycle of abuse from repeating with their children. I support Foster carers, kinship carers and the children in their care to heal from their Developmental Trauma and move forwards in their lives to achieve their full potential.
Throughout my life, I have been interested in alternative forms of healing and I am a Reiki Master and can do spiritual readings with cards. This definitely opened up my life to explore all the possibilities it offers and I genuinely believe that we never stop learning and developing.
Through my Havening practise, I endeavour to treat each client as a unique individual who has their own life experiences. They are encouraged to explore their own histories, removing any traumatic memories along the way. The hope is that through healing they will be able to reach their full potential and prevent their subconscious issues from passing through the generations.
"Making sense of a past that made no sense is opening to the sensations of the past and putting them together now to see how they impacted you then, and how you can free yourself to live the life you want now."
