Event Type

The focus of this first module to learn TRE Trauma Releasing Exercises (as developed by Dr David Berceli) is to develop a strong personal TRE ‘shaking meditation’ practice.

My classes are small, friendly and welcoming based in the beautiful Weald of Kent. I prefer to teach smaller groups in-person, and all ages, body shapes, and sizes are welcome. TRE is designed to be accessible for everyone.

For the 2024 intake I currently have two space left.

To become a certified TRE Provider there are two further modules & supervision to complete over 12-18 months. For more information please contact me at to discuss or take a look HERE Or HERE for full training & certification info. To book please click HERE

  • There will be teaching about the latest science of trauma and how it affects the body
  • We will cover how TRE and embodiment can help us process old knee jerk neurophysiological patterns (fight, flight and freeze) which create tension and trauma stories in the tissues and nervous system
  • There will be plenty of time to explore, ask questions, and drop into your own TRE tremors
  • The first step with learning TRE is to meet your body in this new way
  • Questions and learning about trauma and the body will be fully explored during the workshop
  • This module is open to anyone interested in learning more about TRE

Core teaching elements are:

  • Containment
  • Grounding
  • Co-regulation
  • Self-regulation
  • Developmental trauma
  • Attachment theory in relation to TRE

This also includes learning how to apply the theory behind TRE including:

  • Trauma and the body
  • Fascia
  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Polyvagal theory
  • Neurology of the stress response – fight, flight, freeze
  • Dissociation in relation to TRE

A recent training testimonial:

Everyone on the course reacted differently and Kate was incredibly empathetic in how she supported each person, without being intrusive.

I was worried about people watching the ‘shaking’ but everyone is so caught up in their own experience that I did not once feel self-conscious. I found it absolutely fascinating to learn about the body’s natural shaking reflex and how modern human societies have repressed this way of releasing adrenaline, leading to chronic stress held in the body. It was amazing how the body started off tentatively but then began to ‘re-learn’ how to shake. 

After each shaking session, I felt so refreshed and calm.

I have been on a lifelong journey to recover from childhood trauma (CPTSD) and came across TRE whilst researching body based and neuroscience based trauma healing approaches. I have spent a lot of time in talking therapies over the years and gained essential insights, but some issues remain stubborn and hard to shift. Bessel Van Der Kolk’s book – ‘The Body Keeps the Score’ really opened my eyes to the way trauma is held in the body, so when I read about TRE I was intrigued to try it. 

The refreshing thing about TRE is that you do not need to talk about your traumas – you just let your body discharge tensions as it needs to.

My next step is to develop a regular practice that I can easily fit into my life as I am convinced of the cumulative benefits of TRE, having experienced these and heard the stories of others!!’
