TRE Intro Days are a fun and safe way to learn about your body. No need to talk about difficult things. No need to confront painful experiences. No need to get lost in overwhelming emotions. Learn the simple power of shaking to help you release tension and feel more connected. Here is some feedback from yesterday’s workshop: ‘I loved it!! I felt very safe. There was an appropriate level of science, physiology and time for questions.’ – Anthonissa Moger, Midwife ‘Great course that provided theory and ritual to enable our bodies to safely release and manage ourselves. Really enjoyed myself. Beautifully done’ – Keekz, Nurse ‘I liked everything! The explanations, the exercises, the...

Can we trauma-proof our brains?

In our modern day world, you don’t have to look too far to find a source of stress. A noisy neighbour, a traffic jam or an argument with your partner can take you down the same fear pathway as being chased by a tiger. It’s no wonder many of us feel chronically tense. I believe we all need to learn to be a bit more ‘mammal’. And in doing so, we can actually ‘trauma-proof’ our brains. Time to be more ‘mammal’… When an antelope escapes the jaws of a predator, it picks itself up, has a good shake and then carries on munching grass like nothing happened. Very quickly, the...

TRE® in 100 words

Posted on18 Mar 2019

‘TRE®, Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises, are a simple set of exercises that trigger a natural tremor reflex in the body. Shaking can release long-held tension patterns and promote new feelings of connection and ease. Shaking is a novel stimulus to the central nervous system. New stimuli, approached with safety and curiosity, can support learning and growth. The psychology of trauma is complex, the physiology is relatively simple. In trauma old parts of the brain are fixed in defence cascades of ‘fight-or-flight’ or ‘freeze’. TRE® is a safe, natural process to re-boot overprotective reflexes.’ Got asked to describe TRE® for a magazine today. Fingers crossed it gets printed.

Constructed Emotions – A history of emotion research

Posted on19 Nov 2018

Here is great article on the history of research into emotion by Lisa Feldman-Barrett: ‘Construction theories of emotion are an ambassador for an entirely different view of human nature. Your mind cannot be a battleground between animalistic emotions and rational thoughts, because the brain has no separate systems for emotion and cognition.’ The classical view of emotion ‘says that you are an animal at the core, at the mercy of automatic emotions that you regulate by that most human of abilities, rational thought. This view of human nature is deeply embedded in society. It’s in the legal system, which distinguishes between calculated crimes, such as first-degree murder, and crimes of...

‘I found the process to be very accessible and immediately effective – I was shaking well before I finished the exercises, and enjoyed the sensation of release.’ Here is great review of a ‘TRE Intro Day’ from Susie Gerke, yoga teacher and blogger via http://omdepartment.com  Friday Featuring … The Shakes Or, more officially, Tension, Stress and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE). Intrigued by the idea that inducing involuntary tremors might be another way of tackling deep tension and chronic pain, in August of this year I went along to a day-long workshop run by Steve Haines to learn about shaking as a form of self-regulating the nervous system. I booked this workshop...

To heal trauma we do not need to remember

Posted on24 Sep 2018

Memory is a complex perception How does memory work? Why does it get confused in trauma? When trying to recover from overwhelming experiences it can be helpful to understand how memory works, particularly how memories are related to feelings in the body. There are folklore phrases such as ‘muscle memory’ and ‘cellular memory’ that can be very useful but need to be applied carefully. They speak to the importance of information stored in the body. However it is essential to understand that for the information to be available to our awareness, our brain needs to be involved in processing the patterns of information flow happening in the body. Where the...
