I’ve been practising TRE 2-3 times a week for 6 months now. Even after 3 months I noticed a marked change in my anxiety levels before and during giving presentations at work. I feel more in control of my nerves, which is something I’ve been trying to work on, without much success, for years. The other benefit I’ve noticed is that my IBS is so much better, which is fantastic. I really enjoy doing TRE and feel very grounded after each session. I’m really grateful to Katherine for sharing this practice with me. My body seemed to respond very positively right from the start. And I love the fact that it is quick to do and only needs to be done a few times a week, unlike some other daily practices which are not always possible to fit into our busy lives.

To be honest I didn’t really know what I was signing up for when I booked the TRE workshop but it turned out to be a really wonderful experience. Learning the technique helped me become more in touch with how my body needs to move and respond to stress and I have since continued with a home practice. I can honestly say that a single session with Katherine was a transformative experience and I’m grateful to have learnt a really valuable tool for releasing tension moving forward.

After some stressful periods in my life, I signed up for a TRE session with Katherine. She is an amazing and inspiring instructor. TRE is extraordinary but she made it all seem comfortably normal. She calmly guided me through the exercises, showing me how to get the maximum benefit, and I came away from the session feeling energised and motivated to start practising at home. The benefits were almost instant. I have been practising for 2 months and I feel more relaxed and in control of my life.
I recently attended a TRE Taster Class, more out of curiosity than anything else. What an amazing experience. I felt fantastic afterwards. The instructor was brilliant, I felt really comfortable and safe in her hands. Would thoroughly recommend giving this a go.

I attended two TRE classes with Katherine at The WOW Clinic. Wonderful experience that touched really deep places. Will definitely be taking more sessions.

I just love the calming effect of TRE. It really does help after a stressful day. I’m so pleased you introduced this technique to me.

I am a Royal Marine who was diagnosed with acute Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder some 18 months ago.
Although traditional psychotherapy has helped to order my memories and calm some of my more aggressive symptoms, my body has remained chronically hyper-aroused – stuck in a perpetual fight-or-flight response. This has prevented the holistic mind and body recovery that is necessary for effectively treating PTSD.
This is why learning TRE with Katherine has been so significant for me. Katherine’s approach has greatly complemented my psychiatric therapy, helping to reset my physiology and bring order to my inner chaos. In stark contrast to yoga or mindfulness meditation, where the benefits have been fleeting at best, with the TRE techniques that Katherine has taught me – my whole body relaxes and can now remain calm for days at a time.
As well, the pain in my abdomen, back, shoulders, head, and a mild skin condition, all of which were a consequence of chronic trauma, has eased or disappeared altogether. I can breath more freely, and have – for the first time in many years – realised what it feels like to be relaxed, happy, and at ease with myself.
TRE has also improved my self-awareness – so that when I get particularly anxious I can feel the neurogenic TRE tremors beginning on their own, just below the surface. In the past this was a deeply disconcerting and worrying sensation, but since working with Katherine – I now understand what is going on, and those sensations and feelings have become a source of reassurance and comfort.
Overall, learning TRE with Katherine has greatly assisted my recovery from PTSD, helping me to feel more relaxed, embodied, and in control of myself.
