TRE®

Please see https://www.tresouthdevon.com for more info about TRE and TRE sessions with me.

“David Berceli’s Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises TRE® are an amazing tool for helping the body let go of deep, chronic patterns (physical and emotional).

Once you have learnt the exercises, and can feel and allow the tremors, you just let the body do its own healing and clearing out of overwhelming experiences.”

(From http://www.trecollege.com)

* Release tension, stress and trauma from your system by tapping into the body’s natural tremoring mechanism

* Calm your adrenaline fueled ‘fight-flight-freeze’ response

* Find out if TRE can help you to address symptoms that can be linked to a stressed nervous system: digestive issues, headaches, tiredness, sleep issues, feeling irritable, low mood, anxiety….

* Learn a technique that you can then do on your own at home for free

* There’s no need to talk about difficult things from the past

*If you’ve been doing TRE for a while and feel a bit stuck then I can help you spread the tremors throughout more of your body

Many people report that TRE helps them feel safer in the world and more connected to themselves and others. Why don’t you come and see what TRE can do for you?

TRE is believed to help re-calibrate our nervous system, and helps reduce the issues that are linked to a stressed nervous system, including anxiety, angry outbursts, sleep difficulties, ADHD, depression, poor emotional regulation and bed wetting.

To read more about how TRE may help children please read this article

I’m offer TRE to children and adults. Children usually need to be 6-7 years old before they are willing to follow the exercises necessary to initiate the tremoring process, but please do call me if your child is under 6 and you wish to try TRE with them.

Once the exercises are learnt and you/your child can tremor and feel comfortable doing TRE then you can practice it home- no more need to pay someone to help you heal!

I’m particularly keen to support parents/foster carers to do TRE with their children, as well as schools, as a way of helping their child with emotional and/or behavioural difficulties.

TRE is a great way to help your child (and yourself) become more emotionally regulated, please watch this video from http://www.parentingforbrain.com
