Deepen your understanding, practice and skills in TRE® by participating in TRE® clinical skills development. 

I offer both individual and group clinical supervision sessions, which can be done in person or via skype or zoom.

After certification our challenge as TRE® Providers is:

  • To commit to our own TRE® practice to support ongoing growth and learning
  • To continue to do quality work whilst recognizing that each client is unique and deserves to be looked at as an individual
  • To continually expand our knowledge and skills – TRE® is a new modality where new information is constantly sweeping in as the latest research comes to the fore – this helps us to maintain excellence in our practice.

What can you expect from TRE® clinical supervision?

Opportunities to:

  • Explore questions arising from your own and others’ TRE® practice
  • Receive support in dealing with difficult clients and challenging groups dynamics
  • Discuss TRE® readings – articles, chapters from books, blogs, discussions, video’s etc.
  • Practice, refine and increase your TRE® knowledge base and clinical and instructional skills
  • Explore ethical issues
  • Share TRE® resources (e.g. video’s, articles, books etc.)
