Beautiful New Venue for 2024

For over 20 years this beautiful, iconic building on Lime Tree Walk lay derelict and unloved. An historic warehouse, right in the heart of Sevenoaks.  This is a unique venue with loads of natural light, high ceilings and striking architectural features.

We are delighted to be taking our workshops here.

Completing Module 1 of the TRE Training Programme was, quite simply, astonishing. Having lived for years and years in a high state of anxiety and stress, my nervous system was stuck in ‘I’m under attack mode’ and as such, my mind couldn’t function effectively. My life was so limited by the dissociative state that I was living in. I couldn’t make decisions, I was numb, I wasn’t living – just existing day to day. I felt hopeless and sad all the time. 

After just one TRE shaking session, the change in me was unbelievable. It was as if I could feel the tension leaving my body – to be replaced by the most delicious sense of calm. As an intravenous injection travels all around your system – this too could be felt slowly replacing the cortisol that had been dominant for so long.

Afterwards – as well as the feeling of physical calm – I also had such clarity of thought. This was something I hadn’t had for as long as I can remember – it was as if the inner calm in my body and regulation of my nervous system had allowed my mind the peace it needed to function as it should. 

The most wonderful, life-changing experience which must be felt to be believed.

Module 1 – Students Develop Personal TRE Practice

The focus of this first module to learn TRE Trauma Releasing Exercises (as developed by Dr David Berceli) 

To be a TRE Provider we as you to develop a strong personal TRE ‘shaking meditation’ practice.

  • Each student is invited to safely explore their neurogenic tremor mechanism with their own body each day

  • This is delivered as a group experience with the support of the Tutor Team

  • We will cover how TRE and embodiment can help us process old knee jerk neurophysiological patterns
  • We will explore fight, flight and freeze which create tension and trauma stories in the tissues and nervous system

  • There will be teaching about the latest science of trauma and toxic stress and how it affects the 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 & Embodiment

‘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!!’
TRE Module 1 with Kate, Feedback

My sleep, flexibility and self-regulation are all the better for Kate’s TRE Module 1 Training.

Kate was recommended to me by a new homoeopathy client and I had heard many positives about TRE from a yoga colleague who had trained and I was interested to find out more.  After decades of frustration, my client had experienced profound changes in her eczema condition and in her nervous system after just a few TRE treatments with Kate.

I could see the potential for healing from TRE as a movement therapy that I was keen to experience for myself, and with a view that it would complement my work as a yoga teacher and neurodevelopmental therapist.   

On meeting Kate she brought about hugely transformative changes for me too on an emotional and physical level. 

I was especially appreciative of the new range of movement in my shoulder and hip.  I hadn’t realised the extent I was still holding in these areas from long-standing injuries over challenging times.  

I have gone on to train with Kate because she has both an extensive understanding of the scientific research behind TRE and her unique way of holding a space for you, just where you’re at, whether you’re in a one to one session or a group.  

Kate’s teaching is fun, informative and full of memorable presentations interspersed with deeply grounding TRE experiences. 

Kate brings you back to the interconnectedness and wisdom in nature and in you.
