The Havening Techniques are healing modalities designed to help individuals overcome problems that are the consequence of traumatic or stressful life experiences. Viva Excellence is a premier provider of Havening Techniques Trainings for Licensed Mental Health Practitioners across the Nation and abroad.

New insights in the world of Neuroscience have led to the development of revolutionary techniques for treating Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex PTSD and other stress-based disorders such as anxiety, depression, panic disorder, and phobias.  Viva Excellence is proud to offer a suite of training tools and programs designed to empower individuals, practitioners, and organizations in Living their Excellence.

We now have the tools to gently and effectively heal the past whilst strengthening the ability to create a new empowered future. 

The Havening Techniques® are healing modalities designed to help individuals overcome problems that are the consequence of a traumatic or stressful life experience. Through the depotentiation, or deactivation, of the neurons in the brain that encoded the traumatic experience, you can now free your clients from their traumatic past. Viva Excellence is a premier provider of Havening Techniques Trainings and Advanced Topics Seminars designed specifically for Licensed Mental Health Practitioners.

The Fear Reprocessing and Cognitive Reframing Techniques (F.R.C.R.T.)  present an advanced model for the treatment of Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) as well as the effects of chronic depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, insomnia, addiction, eating disorders and other painful and life impacting struggles.  Viva Excellence is proud to introduce a suite of powerful tools incorporating elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dr. Kristin Neff's Self-Compassion work, Cognitive Processing Therapy, the Trauma Resiliency Model, Mindfulness Techniques, Neurolinguistic Programming, amongst others. Come learn how to transform your practice with techniques that honor your client's unique brain development across their life span - our cognitions may be top-down but our senses are bottom-up. It's time to treat the whole system!

The Resilient Brain Model allows for individual empowerment and healing. Imagine a world where you, your family, coworkers, employees, students and others are empowered to heal themselves. Imagine a workplace that is free from the activating stressors that derail projects and get in the way of healthy interpersonal relationships. The Resilient Brain Model lays the foundation for such an experience.  We now have powerful tools designed to support the brain in finding, and maintaining, greater balance leading to greater clarity of thought, lower stress, and better overall well-being. Empower yourself, empower your colleagues, empower your employees. It's time to rebalance the brain and find your excellence.​​

F.R.C.R.T. is a suite of therapeutic tools and techniques brought together to effectively and efficiently create healing whilst enhancing treatment outcomes.
