When I discovered TRE, my intention was to learn the process so that I could establish my own self- practice. After practising a few times I was so impressed with the benefits that I felt in both mind and body, that I decided train to be a TRE provider. I have trained with both TRE Scotland and TRE College, where the main trainer is Steve Haines.
I have an eclectic working background, having worked in the fields of the Arts, Youth Work, Holistic Therapy and Hospitality. I also have had a varied education and training where I have gained the following qualifications.
TRE Provider Certification/ TRE College London.
City & Guilds certificate in Teaching Adult Learners
IIHHT Diploma in Body Massage/ Strode College
Esoteric Soul Healing, Professional Healer Certification/ Isle of Avalon Foundation
BA (hons) Visual Performance & Arts Management / Dartington College of Arts.
Perhaps the most important training for me, in my life, has been my commitment to self healing and researching and exploring various therapeutic methods and tools. I can honestly say that TRE has been key for me in releasing the chronic held tension patterns in my body related to developmental trauma.
As a result I feel ever more grounded in my body and I am able to enjoy living in the present moment, allowing life to unfold naturally without the need to control it from a space of fear and protection. I offer individual sessions, group shakes and monthly workshops in a beautiful studio space in Glastonbury, five minutes from the town centre.

I first studied Counselling and Hypnotherapy and while I greatly appreciated benefits of both of those approaches and still use both in my current therapeutic practise, when I discovered the work of Peter Levine (In an Unspoken Voice, 2010) I discovered a whole new perspective on how the body holds experience of the past, how to tune into what I was experiencing in the body in the present and began to learn that what is held and experienced can also be released.
As this journey into rediscovering my body unfolded I discovered TRE and, living in Scotland at that time began to train as a TRE provider
The journey since then has been surprising. During the 3 day TRE workshop I did notice some significant change and originally I chose to continue and do the full training because I felt this was a way of ensuring that I continue practising and deepening my understanding. I feel this was one of the better decisions in my life because it has indeed been life changing and over time I have been able to be in and experience my body in a way I was simply unable to do before and as time goes by the consequences of this deepening process result in changes in the way I experience myself, everything around me and my ability to access and realise my potential. The TRE training has taken a lot longer than I thought, partly because it is demanding in ways I hadn't anticipated but also because through the practise of TRE I have processed more and more trauma and this has resulted in making a lot of changes in my life.
The biggest change during this time has been to step into being a therapist and as well as continuing my training in TRE I have completed all phases of training in Brainspotting and also completed the basic training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
I also completed an 18 month training in Tantra with Jan Day.
