Who am I?
My name is Joanne Morgan and I am a Qualified teacher B.Ed , Havening practitioner, PSYCH-K Master Facilitator and Reiki Master teacher. I have been teaching now for over ten years and in that time I’ve seen the effect trauma has had on our youth and my teaching career has allowed me to explore this path for the last few years as a Nurture Teacher. It has been an incredible journey getting to work with children who are living in or who have lived through trauma. It has taught me an incredible amount about the impact that trauma can have on our body, mind and soul from this young age. I have been on my own healing journey throughout the past few years and as a result & I found some very powerful healing modalities that have helped me to become the best version of myself, my authentic self. The me without the trauma, the pain, programming, conditioning and all the learned behaviour I'd picked up along the way. My healing journey was majorly impacted by three different healing tools- they work in different ways and support healing on many levels including reprogramming limiting beliefs, clearing trauma within the mind, body and soul on a deep cellular level and facilitating growth towards becoming the best version of yourself. Firstly, I found Reiki which I am grateful for as it aided my healing on so many different levels, although I found that the physical pain still resided in my body on a cellular level and that's where Havening came in. Havening helped me to rewire my nervous system and to deal with the activation which had built up over the years leading to dis-ease in my body. Havening helped me to completely turn my life around as it freed me up from the anxiety and panic attacks that were being triggered through the trauma which was still very much alive in my body. When I seen first hand, the amazing results that Havening had, I knew that I wanted to pursue this calling to help others in the way it had helped me to get my life back. Lastly I gravitated towards PSYCH-K to help me programme into my subconscious new empowering beliefs to replace all the limiting ones I held within my subconscious. In using these techniques it has helped me move from a victim consciousness to one of empowerment and deliberate creator. I know I am now able to live life as the confident, joyful and peaceful person I truly am. The me I was before life threw it's many challenges and adversities my way but now I see this was my greatest gift, so that I could go on this healing journey and bring these techniques to others so they too can heal and live their best life.
The Havening Techniques
What is Havening and how can it be used in healing?
The Havening technique is a psychosensory therapy that uses sensory input or touch to change the brain. As this touch creates delta brain waves that have a positive effect on regions of the brain that are involved in creating emotionally charged memories and trauma. One of these brain regions is the amygdala, which plays a major role in recording the emotions of our experiences. When it comes to traumatic experiences, the amygdala encodes emotions in a different way, and they become what neuroscientists call “potentiated.” This means they get hard-wired into your brain where they stick like super glue. It is our hard-wiring for survival that means we can become triggered or emotional, depending on if our brain perceives these similar experiences in our reality. Over time we can become super sensitive to various stimuli resembling the perceived danger for example it could be compared to becoming so sensitive to external stimuli that it equates to the touch of a feather dropping on top of a car and setting off the alarm system! Havening allows us to get that alarm system desensitized and rewire it to go back to its original state!
There are different Havening techniques, such as; Event Havening. This form of havening is often used for people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or where there are very distressing memories plaguing the client. It has been found to help eliminate the intrusive thoughts, nightmares, and flashbacks associated with.

What is PSYCH-K?
a non-invasive, interactive process of change with a proven record of success for over 30 years!
a simple, yet powerful process to change subconscious beliefs that are self-limiting and self-sabotaging
a unique blend of various tools for change, some contemporary and some ancient, derived from contemporary neuroscience research, as well as ancient mind/body wisdom
a groundbreaking approach to facilitating change at the subconscious level where at least 95% of our consciousness operates.
a process that transcends the standard methods of visualization, affirmations, will power, and positive thinking especially effective in the areas of behavioural/habit change, wellness and stress reduction
Who can benefit from PSYCH-K®?
The fact is that PSYCH-K® can function differently for different people. It is truly a multi-functional, multi-disciplinary process to aid individuals in achieving their goals in life.
In the hands of an individual it can serve to help transform limiting subconscious beliefs that often block the expression of one’s full potential in life.
In the hands of a professional mental health practitioner, it becomes an effective adjunct to traditional insight-based talk therapies.
For people who have physical health challenges, it is a way to compliment standard medical treatment by helping to activate the body’s natural self-healing properties.
In the hands of a spiritual seeker, it is a tool to reduce stress by eliciting a Whole-Brain State. This is a special state of consciousness that activates both hemispheres of the brain simultaneously and thus helps to “clear the signal” to your inner spiritual guidance, thereby creating a gateway to higher consciousness. In other words, PSYCH-K® can dramatically assist you in accelerating your own spiritual evolution!
The application of the PSYCH-K® principles, philosophy, and methodology, is applicable to achieving a wide variety of goals, depending on one’s personal desires and/or professional skill-sets.
Overall, PSYCH-K® helps individuals to consciously and subconsciously re-perceive themselves, their circumstances, and their personal potential, in order to lead a happier and more satisfying life.

"For a long time I was searching for something to help me overcome my anxiety and childhood trauma when I came across Joanne. I started havening with Joanne and instantly felt like this is the right support for me. Joanne offers a calm and safe space to deal with my trauma and is very professional and knowledgeable. I immediately began to see the positive impact havening was having on my life. Joanne is the most warmest and gentle soul and brings such a positive energy for healing to every session and Havening has allowed me to work on healing my anxiety, work through my childhood trauma in a safe and supported manner and to recognise my triggers and learn to be present in the moment. I am grateful for all the work Joanne and I have been doing through Havening and would recommend Joanne and Havening to anyone needing support and guidance to deal with any challenging situations. It's a decision im so glad I made."
"I have attended therapy for about 5 years on and off. For me, I was getting to that stage where my self care wasn't my priority. I started a job, attending college and on top of that I', running a house and being a mum of four wee men. So, because I wasn't sorting my own mental wellbeing, I was becoming overwhelmed and my triggers were unmanageable. A lovely lady suggested Joanne. As someone who has experienced extreme ACE's (Adverse childhood experiences), I felt a bit fearful for what might happen or come up. Joanne put me at complete ease from the moment I walked through the door. Her sense of softness and essence of kindness was welcoming. I've had a few sessions with Joanne and I can't express enough how helpful, beneficial her sessions are towards my daily life. I've managed to safely process extremely difficult memories that I haven't even talked about with past therapists. I feel this is because I am in control within the safety of her kindness and attentiveness. The ability to be vulnerable without judgement is extremely difficult for someone who has experienced childhood trauma so to have meet my needs so softly and naturally has helped me to gain control of my triggers but also change how I approach and tackle healthy habits that were unconsciously effecting my life. Thank you Joanne, I look forward to many more sessions.
"This is a Testimonial. Let your customers tell the world how great you are."
I cannot describe just how transformative one PSYCH-K session with Joanne has been! I had so much anxiety around covid and also travelling. I had a trip booked and had a session we worked on my beliefs of feeling unsafe always believing something bad would happen- around fear of flying, not only did I have an amazing carefree joyous time away I noticed 3 days into my holiday I had completely stopped picking my thumb (a nervous habit I've had for as long as I can remember I've picked it until it bled constantly) It's been almost two weeks and I haven't touched it or even thought about it! It's like I never did i! It's absolutely blown my mind and I am so grateful and thankful to Joanne for this amazing transformation. I cannot recommend PSYCH-K enough- totally life changing
