TRE FOR CREATIVE FLOW (NEW 4 week course)
(3 spaces remaining)
For beginners or those wanting to refresh their practice
In this new 4-week course you will learn how to use Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises to increase creativity and self-expression. The course will focus on using TRE to calm the nervous system, tone the vagus nerve (which creates the perfect state for creativity), and gently release tension from the jaw, eyes and throat – areas which can become ‘blocked’ and inhibit our self-expression. Suitable for writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and anyone who wants to express themselves more authentically in the world – whether socially, or for a creative hobby or career!
Numbers will be limited to 4 people – so the group is small, informal and friendly, and you will receive plenty of 1:1 support and guidance. There will be email support available between the weekly classes, and material to take away to support your home practice.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
In the first 2 weeks of the course we will focus on learning TRE and surrendering to the movements. In the second part of the course we will focus on gently releasing tension from the face and throat during our practice.

This course focuses on creative flow and tension release rather than trauma release. Most people will have experienced some form of trauma in their life – whether it’s from a physical injury or a challenging childhood. However, the TRE for Creative Flow class is not suitable if you have any major medical or mental health conditions, or a history of complex/severe trauma or PTSD. If you have any concerns about this, please consult your medical practitioner and contact me for a chat before booking. (If necessary I can refer you to a Certified TRE® Provider with specific training from this list of UK TRE Providers.)
TRE® is not suitable if any of the following currently apply to you:
- Recent injuries or physical limitations (i.e. broken bones)
- Acute concussion / whiplash
- Hypo / Hyperglycemia
- Irregular blood pressure / heart conditions
- Surgeries healed less than six months
“The Course was so helpful and just brilliant. I am definitely experiencing less anxiety when I wake in the mornings; a time when, usually and for many years now, my head has always been racing.”
“I first came across TRE quite a few years ago and bought the book. I loved the concept and tried the exercises on my own, but without support and encouragement, I failed to make TRE a habit and it faded from my life. However, Katherine provides plenty of both, while also holding the space beautifully during the course. I am now regularly practising TRE and feel very grateful. Although not a quick fix, this healing modality can, with regular practise, be really transformative over time. Katherine is living proof of this (I’ll let her tell you her story – you’ll be amazed!) and I highly recommend her and her course!”
