As your certified Havening Techniques practitioner, I always strive to provide an empathetic, judgment-free, nurturing and safe healing space where together we work to increase your resilience and well-being, reduce suffering caused by distressful emotions, past traumas, unhelpful self-talk and self-doubt, so that you can achieve your goals and bring forth your best self

      I bring skills and experiences that are informed by the mind-body science of not only havening, but also resilience, posiive psychology, the value and function of all compassion, and all emotions. Allow me to guide you toward your goals and empower you in your own mind/body health-improvement, distress relief, self-care and personal growth. I work primarily online, with clients throughout North America, even Westeren Europe. So far, I have helped dozens of people address a variety of concerns with Havening, from improving educational and work performance to addressing traumatic event-originated fear, distress, pain and phobias, to building/rekindling a sense of play, to fostering hope, courage, confidence, motivation/energy and other positive, resilience-building emotions.

"In my session, we focused on my fear about speaking up in meetings.  Elisa was very warm and sincere, and I felt in safe hands. I loved the visual distractions she used during. She helped me delve deeper into the issue, uncovering my 'people pleasing' tendency, which was spot on! Afterwards, I felt very calm and focused, and we had a helpful final discussion. Elisa is a fantastic Havening practitioner; I highly recommend her."                    --Jackie, Scotland

"Elisa used vivid imagery and other techniques to help me address some childhood trauma. I was impressed at how fast we could dive into powerful emotions and then quickly shift them. I felt validated, understood, and much better after. I recommend Havening Techniques®, and Elisa in particular. Working with her was a beautiful, helpful experience."          --Roman, USA

I had a powerful Havening experience with Elisa! We were part of the same Havening Techniques® training course, and one time Elisa offered to do a session with me. All I can say is, “Wow!” She was extremely warm, yet very professional. I knew from the start that I was in capable hands. We addressed a work-related concern: I run multiday trainings, and one was coming up. The havening process was soothing, comforting, and had a real impact. I clearly saw and felt the benefit the very next day when I began facilitating my training and felt clear, calm and centered—exactly what I’d havened about feeling as we’d wrapped up our session. I’m so grateful to Elisa for helping me be my best self so I can continue to help others."            --Gwen, USA

"I love working with Elisabeth. She is full of compassion, empathy, very supportive, a good, attentive listener, and a wonderful person. We worked on my fears of elevators and highway driving, with Havening touch always the foundation. Although English is not my first language, I felt we connected deeply. We uncovered the deep origins of my phobias over a total of 3 sessions. Elisabeth even facilitated a session related to my deceased father, which played a big part in solving these fears. Since then, I continue to use havening on my own to calm my mind whenever needed. I have used elevators successfully, and even driven in big cities! I feel Elisa’s supportive energy and imagination as I recall our sessions and continue using the method in many ways on my own."            --Mara, Germany
