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.

REDA JACOBS – Advanced TRE® Provider and Mentor
Advanced Mental Health Practitioner (Psychiatric Nursing)
Body Stress Release Practitioner
Phone: 083 652 3416
Polokwane Limpopo Province

I have been working as a registered nurse and midwife for many years in the primary health care setting. I furthered my studies and qualified as an advanced psychiatric nurse. My interest in the body-mind modalities and the holistic approach to well-being lead me to TRE in 2011 when Dr David Berceli presented TRE® in South Africa and I qualified as a TRE provider in 2012.

I became involved with mentoring and supervision of new practitioners that were trained by Dr Erika Coertzen in Limpopo and Mpumalanga while pursuing my own healing process during a demanding time in my career. In 2019 I chose to resign from my work to study Body Stress Release full-time and qualified as BSR practitioner. I am investing in taking TRE to an advanced level both personally and professionally. TRE complements BSR as an invaluable self-help tool. I am studying mindfulness at the University of Stellenbosch and will soon qualify as a MBSR practitioner.

In my experience mindful awareness of body sensations, thoughts and feelings is a fundamental principle for self-healing through TRE.

I am a high school educator and some of my learners come from dysfunctional households. One is forced to be a ‘Psychologist, Nurse, Social Worker, Police Officer, and parent’ due to the nature of problems presented by the learners.
Some of their problems leave one emotionally traumatized. Dr Erica Coertzen exposed me to TRE and supported me throughout the whole process. It has been the most fulfilling journey and want to spread my wings to help learners, educators and the community at large to relieve stress and tension.

TRE is a powerful practical modality to improve wellness across many physical and emotional traumas. As a Practitioner I believe it is a tool that everyone should be taught to assist the body’s innate ability to heal itself. TRE does not cease to amaze me as a Practitioner in terms of the individual, personal and enduring outcomes it achieves.

The wonders of TRE constantly amaze me.  Trauma can be physical or psychological and the body will react the same to both.  The autonomic nervous system will react through increased breathing and heart rate, tense muscles, cold sweat, etc.  This is where TRE comes in: it not only taps into the body’s ability of self-healing but also release deep seated stress and help restore the body to a natural balanced state.

TRE helped me through my journey of self-discovery and gave me a wonderful tool. Through TRE I was able to harvest my body’s unique power of self-healing resulting in a much calmer and focussed state of being. I would love to help others in their journey of self-discovery and healing.

TRE provider and NLP Life Coach

Area: Ermelo, Mpumalanga

TRE is a body modality to release stress and tension physically. Here we can manage “life” and also release a life time of tension and stress. 

NLP Life Coaching is a talk therapy where we learn to understand our own neuro-linguistics – the brain language – how we think and self-talk. Here is where we can make changes.

New perspectives bring hope to our life in general but especially relating to childhood trauma/loss/relationships/marriage.

I came across TRE® after traveling on my own healing journey. I have always felt that stress and trauma that hasn’t been dealt with can cause disease in the body and I immediately resonated with TRE®.

There is no guess work, assumption, or diagnosis needed as in so many other healing modalities.

The body knows best what stress or trauma needs to be released without having to relive the traumatic event all over again. I am very excited and passionate about this work. I love that when people have learned how to do TRE®, they are equipped with a tool to manage stress and trauma for the rest of their life without having to rely on seeing a practitioner. I have seen many benefits in my own tremoring process and love to teach TRE®
