TRE® Certification Trainer
Dr Salmon has relocated to live in Spain. She is and will always be the ‘Mother of TRE®’ in South Africa and without her TRE® would not have been such a success in South Africa.
Thank you Melanie.

Dr Salmon brought Dr David Berceli to South Africa to present TRE® in 2010 and train Providers in 2011 and 2012. The Provider Training in South Africa was the first formal training in the world at the time. Between 2012 and 2017 Dr Salmon facilitated several TRE® Pilot Projects ( Helderberg Rape Crisis Centre, SOS Children’s Village , Chrysalis Academy and in 2016 took TRE® into the Cape Flats and into the SA Parliament.

Under Dr Salmons watch and considerable input TRE has continued to grow exponentially year on year and slowly becomes a tool of choice, negating endless & expensive therapy sessions to deal with ones stress, tension or trauma. In the world that we currently find ourselves in, we are faced with the day to day unfolding of trauma & violence.

I grew up knowing that my career and life purpose would be deeply connected. My interest and passion in helping and teaching did not translate into the traditional pathway of teacher or nurse, but instead I have journeyed a 25 year career in the training and personal development field and since 2011 has integrated deeper process facilitation and healing practices into my own life and approach in my work. I am a skilled and experienced facilitator, creating and holding spaces for learning, healing, growth and development of individuals and groups ranging from local government, to corporate and the NGO sectors.

I am a TRE® Certification Trainer and works full time in TRE® Practice since early 2015, using my skills and experience in TRE® along with Basic Gestalt Counselling practice and  Quantum Energy Coaching (QEC) to offer an integrative approach to releasing and healing tension, stress and trauma. I am an active member in the TRE® community, assisting in the training and supervision of TRE® Providers and I serve on the board of the TRE® for Africa Foundation, a Non-Profit Trust, established to create awareness of and introducing TRE® to communities in South Africa.

I also contribute to the gender reconciliation work of an NPO, called GenderWorks, as a Gender Reconciliation process facilitator and as well in an operational capacity, promoting and supporting the work of the organisation. I also serve on the GenderWorks Council.

“Being strongly grounded in my purpose of facilitating healing and empowerment within communities, I especially love working with women and youth. With a strong connection to and belief in the power of doing service, I volunteer some of my time and skills weekly to contribute meaningfully to women’s groups and youth organisations.”

Having the honor and pleasure of attending all of Dr David Berceli’s trainings in South Africa, I am now a very privileged TRE® trainer and advanced provider. This amazing body-based process has totally transformed my life and my passion now is to work with anyone who is “sick and tired of being sick and tired” of their own behaviors, overwhelming emotions and issues and for anyone who feels numb and disconnected.

Do you want to live in a healthy, happier and more fulfilled way? Come for some sessions so I can teach you how to do this for yourself and for your own well-being or come and train and be of service to others after a mere eight months of training.

Information on Haley Ritzlmayr’s TRE® Provider Training via THIS LINK

I attended the first TRE® training in South Africa in 2010 with Dr David Berceli and within 8 sessions my back pain was gone. Living without pain and fear has been a life changing experience for me. I am also a Cranio-Sacral Therapist and work with facilitating the body to release its OWN tension. TRE® is the ultimate form of this kind of release and the two work effectively together. TRE® is truly a process of not only release but true recovery from past experiences that change who you were meant to be.

If you thought there was no chance of improving your life or physical condition, you may just be wrong. TRE® is about resolving past tension and trauma, providing you with an essential tension discharge tool – just for you.

I specialise in physical pain, working with children and ADD related anxiety and fear.

TRE® has made a huge difference in my life. I am doing what I do because I love the work. I trained with Dr David Berceli in 2011/12 and am a Certification Trainer since 2016. I am on the board of TRE® for Africa Foundation, responsible for this website and active on social media sharing information about TRE®.

I have found TRE® to be a truly empowering practice, enabling people to do something for themselves, relying on their own experience and making TRE® their own. The motivation springs up from the changes they see in themselves and, by living them, in their relationships and choices. It is not just another method that affects an aspect of physical and mental health but can lead to a true integration of the past into the present life.

The provider training is experiential and takes the participant on a self-development journey. It is highly recommended for everyone who works in a therapeutic context.
Safety and connection, emotional self-regulation and understanding of protective and defensive responses in both, oneself and others are of great importance in every helping profession. As you gain in presence and confidence, so will your understanding empower others.
