Today I’m welcoming Michele Paradise to the podcast!
We’re digging into havening and how this technique can help us on the fertility journey.
Michele Paradise; lives between London and LA, a working mother of two grown children and a former international model, muse to Philip Treacy and Zandra Rhodes, with over twenty years experience on the runway in Milan, Paris, London and New York.
In 2000, Michele left the fashion industry and trained in several methodologies in human behavior. She is an expert in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Clinical Hypnotherapist personally trained by the co-creator of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler, and Paul McKenna. Over the last 10 years, Michele assisted Dr. Bandler and Paul McKenna, training 1000s of people in NLP and communication skills for business and personal growth. One of her specialties is presenting workshops for NLP Life Training in presentation skills and public speaking.
In 2014 Michele trained and qualified in Havening Techniques, which is a psychosensory therapy to reduce stress and anxiety caused by trauma in childhood and adulthood.
In 2015 Deepak Chopra invited her to become his personal development coach on his digital wellness platform Jiyo, where she has her own channel The Healing Haven, and has over 30 videos demonstrating Havening for all levels of trauma and anxiety.
In 2019, Michele was accepted into the certification program with Dr. Gabor Maté, entitled Compassionate Inquiry, where she was taught by Dr. Maté himself how to treat addiction, childhood trauma, and other issues that impact her client’s life.
As you may know, our goal is to help reduce the physical and mental/emotional stressors on the body so that you can achieve pregnancy success.
And while meditation, yoga, or breathwork may work for some of us what if you haven’t found a modality that actually helps you to de-stress and reduce anxiety?
Have you heard of havening? I first heard of the technique about 6 months ago. I then started to see it everywhere. Celebrities such as Justin and Hailey Bieber, the Kardashians, and more were using havening to reduce anxiety and overwhelm.
So how can havening help us on the fertility journey?
In this episode you’ll learn:
1) What is havening and how can it helps us on the fertility journey
2) How does the technique help with stress, anxiety, and PTSD
3) What is affirmational havening and how can we use this to visualize a positive pregnancy?
4) Plus you’ll experience a havening demonstration that you follow along with so that you can experience a calming state of mind.
