External conflict comes to an end with the dawn of internal peace. (David Berceli, PhD)

For your safety and comfort you should only receive TRE® guidance from certified individuals. Please do not receive TRE®  guidance from anyone who is not certified and listed on this website or on Although the exercises evoke tremors easily, the ability to understand and safely guide a person through a successful completion of a session is more complex. The goal of providing you with certified TRE® Providers is to ensure you have a safe, pleasant and positive experience.

A certified TRE® Provider is qualified to take both individuals and groups through the TRE Process. A TRE® Certification Trainer will offer individual and group TRE® as well as TRE® Provider Training.

Having experienced profound liberation and joy in my own TRE® process, I have made this work my main focus. I sometimes use TRE® alongside with Wisdom Coaching and Fascia Release Therapy for a truly holistic approach. I attended training with David Berceli in 2011/12 in South Africa and am now leading the TRE® Provider Training in KwaZulu Natal. I am founding member of TRE for AFRICA Foundation and the webmaster for this website. Born in Germany, I speak German fluently.

I have always loved working with people and when I was introduced to TRE in February 2010, I felt that I had finally ‘come home’; and I have never looked back! The learning continues and each client or group I facilitate provides new insights for me, as I observe them change their stories through TRE.  As TRE Providers, we are there to witness and support people to connect with their own innate ability to heal and be healthy. TRE is a body centred method, which we can use as a pressure-release valve, which enables one to release deep rooted chronic tension, as well as facilitate recovery from traumatic events. As a qualified Nutritional Consultant, I incorporate nutrition into my TRE work with clients. I believe that healing starts with the body and through TRE and Nutrition, empowers people to make better choices to heal themselves in a more holistic way.

I run regular TRE group workshops in Westville and I also see clients individually. I usually work with a client for a few sessions to teach self-regulation and to ensure optimal results are achieved through facilitation.

Another passion of mine is working with children to overcome learning difficulties using Dominance Profiling and Brain Balancing/Training. What I notice in many children who are struggling at school is that there is often a history of trauma. This brought me to work with children using TRE, and I saw 16 children through a series of 4 TRE sessions in Durban in 2013.

Hazel has worked with all ages – teaching TRE to emergency responders, businessmen and women, school children (including a remedial class), school staff and principal, office staff, accident victims, hi-jack and break-in victims, frail care residents, and members of the public from all walks of life. Even people who have not suffered a major trauma, or are not under much stress, who simply want to feel more grounded in themselves and more present in the moment, come and learn this wonderful tool for life.

Hazel’s vision is….
to empower others to manage their own health by giving them the tools needed to heal themselves; to facilitate improvement in mobility through TRE for accident injuries and after surgery and to help relieve stress, tension and anxiety in the workplace, home, and in the community, bringing peace and harmony to all.

Science is proving that stress, tension and trauma can have serious consequences for our bodies, manifesting in cancer, chronic heart and lung disease, depression etc. TRE is a wonderful way of allowing our bodies to do the healing work, enabling us to release deep-seated stress and trauma without having to talk about it.
Combining my 20 years of teaching experience with TRE, I specialise in working with children experiencing  ADD and other anxiety related fears that may hinder academic progress.
I also work with individuals who have experienced emotional or sexual abuse, as well as assisting in the release of stress experienced through divorce.
Sessions can be done individually or in groups.
