Personal transformation

The training involves a shift in consciousness, which means seeking the body's natural healing process. TRE is for physical experience, not for analysis or interpretation by the mind. The goal of TRE is to allow the body's wisdom to guide the experience. This needs to be felt and understood from your own TRE experience so that you can successfully communicate it to others.

We will prepare you to guide people through the TRE process, which includes learning to ground yourself. As a person who has decided to teach others TRE, it is important that you are prepared and able to deal with the personal issues that may come up when guiding people through the process. You need to be fully present in the present moment, comfortable and aware of your physical sensations and emotions in order to create a safe space for clients.

About TRE® for

  • Usually, people who are overwhelmed by emotions and have high nervous system activation or dissociation are not able to go deeply into the psychotherapeutic process. TRE is able to gently release anxiety and restore connection with oneself. Some psychotherapists and psychologists call TRE the "missing piece". TRE provides you with an effective somatic practice for working with people recovering from chronic stress, anxiety, or trauma.
    • - TRE® is a valuable somatic practice to support your clients' therapy process. Most of them will be able to use TRE® on their own to support the work they are doing with you.
    • - TRE® is a holistic approach to healing that engages the body, mind and emotions.
    • - TRE can reduce the client's need to "tell the story".
    • - TRE® has become a highly valued complementary practice to traditional talking therapies because it supports healing at the deepest levels of physiology where traumatic reactions originate.
    • - TRE allows clients to understand that their reactions to stress are normal and helps them to cope with stress.
    • - TRE can help you develop your own grounding and reduce burnout from working with clients. TRE teaches you to manage your own resources and energy more effectively.

  • TRE® for teachers of yoga and somatic practices

    This programme is the perfect complement for yoga instructors and other bodywork practitioners who wish to incorporate deep tension and trauma work into their classes. TRE provides important knowledge and understanding of the nervous system and trauma recovery for your work with individual clients and groups.
    • - TRE allows you to combine physical and breathing exercises with the body's natural response to tremors.
    • - TRE helps to relax the lumbar and abdominal muscles.
    • - TRE releases physical and emotional stress and tension.
    • - TRE teaches clients to be more skilful in regulating the load so that they do not go into dissociation and activation, and it promotes greater presence in the body during exercise or meditation.
    • - In addition, TRE can be used as a complement to one's own self-regulation and stress relief.
  • TRE® for body therapists: Biodynamics, CST, osteopathy

    If emotional experiences come up during your sessions, TRE will enable you to guide clients through the experience in a way that is appropriate for them, so that they don't close down and go too deeply into the experience. Living the experience properly will allow them to not hold it in their body as tension. This method will also help you develop a deeper understanding of the interaction between the body and the nervous system, which can enhance your skills as a therapist.
    • - Using TRE will allow you to deepen your knowledge and skills in working with the tremor response, using it as an effective therapeutic component of your work with clients.
    • - TRE supports emotional healing without the need to engage in "talk therapy".
    • - TRE allows for positive and permanent changes to be made to ingrained patterns that perpetuate tension.
    • - With TRE, therapists can address the physical level of stress and trauma that is stored in the client's body.
    • - TRE helps to relieve muscle hypertonicity and increase the level of responsibility for one's body and well-being.
    • - TRE can also be used as an adjunctive tool in the treatment of depression and anxiety, helping to reduce physical and emotional symptoms.
  • TRE® for yourself and your loved ones

    You can also train and become certified if you are not a mental health or medical professional. Our training will help you to competently and safely teach TRE to friends, family members, colleagues and/or clients.
    • Certified providers can include mothers, community organisers working with homeless and at-risk youth, as well as firefighters, rescue workers, military personnel and volunteers.
    • The TRE certification training programme is designed to prepare you to competently and safely teach TRE as a stress reduction technique.
