Milena has personal experience using Havening® while working on some traumatic experiences. This made her a strong believer in it, so she studied to become a Havening® practitioner to help others. 

Milena is a Certified Havening Techniques® practitioner. Milena is a Certified Hypnotherapist (completed training in Neo-Eriksonian Hypnotherapy), a Certified Brain Working Recursive Techiques® (BWRT) practitioner, a Certified NLP practitioner, a Certified Time Line® practitioner and a Certified Heart Math® practitioner. Milena is Certified in Somatic Embodiment and Regulation Strategies. Milena is a Trainer in Emotions Education.

I have been studying trauma and focusing in Trauma education programs. I am Certified in Somatic Embodiment and Regulation Strategies, having completed the 3 levels of training. I became a Trainer in Emotions Education, based on AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy developer Diana Fosha PhD), trained with Hilary Jacobs and Heather Stanford. I studied Somatic Experience with Dr. Peter Levine and Dr. Diane Poole. I trained in Neurobiology with Heart (through Academy of Therapy Wisdom) with Juliane Shore. I am studying the Traumatic Stress Studies program with Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk (through the Trauma Research Foundation). I am training in Nurturing the Heart with Brain in Mind with Bonnie Badenoch PhD (through PCPSI Academy), a heart-based training in relational neuroscience for healing trauma. I have been studying the Advanced Master Program on the Treatment of Trauma (NICABM). As a trained Trauma informed facilitator, I use all learned tools to help people heal and recover.

For years, I have been studying the pioneers of trauma treatment – Dr. Peter Levine, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, Diane Poole, Dr. Paul Gilbert – and applying the science of trauma in my work. I bring to my work the compassionate mind approach to recovering from trauma.

My approach to healing is based on the whole of mind and body. I have helped people deal with trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety, phobias, going into a major surgery, during recovery from major surgery, during recovery from physical injuries, helped people with car accidents, with life stress reduction using Guided imagery with Havening® and Hypnosis, people going through life changes by creating a personalized approach to address their situations, and creating a safe and trusted environment for them to move through their difficulties.

I am passionate about using Havening® in my work combined with all my other skills helping people improve their lives and live a better life. I believe that by getting in touch with the subconscious mind you can heal, transform, and uncover your true self to live a better and fulfilled life.

Before beginning my wellness career, I worked as a telecom engineer for more than a decade, using my Master’s Degree in telecom engineering. Then I went to teach math; I loved connecting with my students and building trusted relationships so they would learn at their highest potential.

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! ?I had a session with Milena last week after a very long day at work via Zoom. Holy cow does this technique work!! ? This is something that anyone at any age and any situation can very easily use. It is a huge helper in stress relief during this crazy time. Thank you Milena for bringing Havening into our lives. Your calm voice and clear narrative truly makes a difference to help center and ground my overactive and stress filled mind. Highly recommend..

Havening Experience

I've had several Havening sessions with Milena. Some were general sessions with positive affirmations and two sessions were in person 1-on-1 with Milena. Those were the most interesting and rewarding as the Havening technique can explore "old" personal events in one's life that needs healing. One event I had I hadn't realized how much it was impacting my life...thought I'd moved on. But Milena gently but effectively helped work through it to a different perspective that really made a difference!!

Havening helps

I have had numerous sessions with Milena. With social distancing, the Zoom sessions are very helpful for anxiety. Learning to self sooth with Milena's Havening techniques are something I very much look forward to. Her trauma informed individual sessions are effective in helping to understand areas where we may be "stuck," and gain insight as to how to look et go and move beyond these points. Definitely an effective resource to add to our self care toolbox! Milena and her Havening sessions are highly recommended.

Skilled Professional with Compassion

I would like to thank Milena Wilbur for three Havening sessions that We had recently. Milena answered my plea for help promptly and with compassion. She helped me respond to a phobic episode that was causing me great distress.
I don’t know what I would have done without her guidance. Once again Havening has proven to be a miracle treatment in the hands of a skilled professional.

Working with Milena made such a Big Difference

I have been working with Milena for several months and her support has made a big difference! Milena began to work with me at a time when I was injured and dealing with physical pain. My work with Milena helped me manage the pain.
When the pain persisted, doctors determined that there was another reason physically causing the pain and I required surgery. Milena worked with me to help me manage the anxiety before the surgery and gave me tools for the day of the surgery. Her support was extremely helpful.
After the surgery Milena worked with me during the recovery with sessions of Havening and Hypnosis. Her support helped me manage the pain after surgery. In fact, I believe her sessions sped up my recovery by helping me relax and boosting my spirit.
I am now fully recovered. I continue to work with Milena. I find that her Hypnosis and Havening sessions are wonderful for deep relaxation and recharging, I would recommend it to anyone.

Working with Milena made a Major impact on my Well being

Working with Milena made a Major impact on my Well being

I have taken sessions with Milena's in Havening and BWRT recently. It is an interesting experience in that a relatively simple procedure has had such a major impact on my emotional (and physical) well being. So, the disturbing ruminations I used to have are now shortened or stopped all together. Other factors may have contributed, like meditation, I believe Milena's work has significantly helped and made a difference! Thank you!

Havening with Guided Imagery make Wonders

Milena has given me Havening with Hypnosis since April 2020. I have weekly sessions with her online mostly for being able to get to a state of deep relaxation and to recover from the daily stress of life. Her voice is very soothing and the guided imagery visualizations she does put me in a deep meditative state. I find it extremely relaxing! It’s an opportunity to get away from the day’s commitments and completely relax. After her Havening with Hypnosis session, I am calm and clear-headed, rejuvenated and ready to proceed with the day’s priorities without stress.

Thank you Milena!
