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 www.traumaprevention.com. 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.

TRE® SESSIONS & GROUPS
“Wendy Scurr is a qualified educator who has spent 25 wonderful years working within primary and secondary education, teaching learners of all ages. Her passion for struggling learners took a new turn when she started using Tension Release Exercise (TRE®) as a tool to assist these learners. The results were phenomenal and long lasting, and TRE® soon became her tool of choice. Her keen interest in assisting the body and mind to heal led Wendy to qualify as a Quantum Energy Coach (QEC) in 2013. She has recently been appointed as the South African supervisor for QEC practitioners.
Wendy offers both TRE and QEC sessions ONLINE and is able to combine her skills to devise the best treatment plan for each client, attending to their individual and unique needs. TRE® and QEC complement each other in a wonderfully holistic way – assisting clients along the road to renewed health and wellness.”
LESLEY CHORN – TRE® Provider – ONLINE / IN PERSON
Registered Counselling Psychologist in Cape Town
Phone: 083 631 6952
I am a Body-Based Psychotherapist, registered as a Counselling Psychologist in South Africa. Other modalities that I use in my online practice, besides general counselling, are Somatic Experiencing, EMDR and Brainspotting.
Frances Ward is a registered counsellor (PRC 0013668), specialising in addiction and trauma treatment. She has more than a decade experience in this field.
She has been offering online TRE® sporadically for years as many of her clients who are attending South African rehabs would return to their country of origin. This extension of face to face TRE® often assisted them with the transition to doing TRE® in their homes by themselves.
Frances is also offering ONLINE TRE® GROUPS
Monday 1715 – 1830 open to the public who’ve done TRE® before.
Thursday 1715 – 1830 for health care providers who’ve done TRE® before. Booking required for both groups, please contact her.
If you can gather a group together Frances will run closed groups too. Clients feedback their appreciation of tremoring at home whilst being held virtually.
CHRISTINE SMITH – TRE® Provider
Reflexology, Kinesiology, Active Isolated Stretching, Mindfulness Coach
Phone: 82 3775877
I discovered TRE® and was thrilled to watch the beautiful dance between body and mind and the delicate unknown and especially the incredible wisdom of the body to be able to regulate exactly what the individual is ready to release. There is nothing I love more than to provide a safe space for a client to mindfully connect with and integrate the healthy and wounded parts of his being in order to become the whole, wonderful living soul he / she was destined to be.
I am offering TRE® ONLINE – Gently release old and recent tensions in the comfort of your home
I am a qualified counsellor working with addiction, depression and anxiety. I’ve been a TRE provider for the past seven years and love that way that it supports healing by increasing resilience and a sense of vitality.
After an initial assessment, either in person, or online, I will guide you in having online TRE sessions in your home. The benefit of doing this online, is integrating it into your home life.

TRE® has expanded my perception and my ability to do my work and to live my life more fully.
I am passionate about this work because the gifts of all people, in the unique expression of who they are, are absolutely essential to create the changes we need to see in the world – and not everyone is aware of the precious gifts they are endowed with.
Some feel stuck, some just want to move forward but aren’t sure where or how and just need some support and encouragement, a talking partner, a cheer leader, a new perspective, reframing to see themselves and to see the next step to their own destiny and greatness. For some, stress and trauma experienced in childhood, adolescence or adulthood, can lead to illness, depression or simply to getting stuck and not finding the way out of a difficult life situation.
TRE® provides a way forward as our bodies shake off and release deep seated – or more recent – stress and trauma. When TRE® is combined with the presence of a present, compassionate and supportive provider, the experience is multiplied!
Leadership for life coaching and TRE contribute to a person’s living a life of personal integrity and to a world where we live together in mutual acceptance of our differences.
I work ONLINE in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Norwegian, face-to-face or online, individually or in small groups.
My passion for people and teaching stems from many years as an educator. After being introduced to TRE®, and through my own personal journey, I realised what a powerful, life changing tool it can be. The desire to share this knowledge motivated further study to qualify as an Advanced TRE® Provider and I continue to interact and share new knowledge about TRE with colleagues both locally and internationally.
In the spirit of ‘giving back’ to the community, I have worked on community-based projects in Somerset West (including Rape Crisis, Patch, Hospice, Child Welfare, Compassionate Friends). The focus was to assist ‘front-liners’ who are confronted daily with people in crisis and who, because of the stressful nature of this work, are often impacted by their own vicarious trauma.
TRE® sessions are offered either face-face or online to individuals, couples and groups. During one-on-one TRE® sessions the pace is adapted to the needs the individual and I feel privileged to be part of each client’s healing journey.
Another option which some people prefer is to join a 6-week Introductory TRE® course, which I periodically offer for small groups of 3-5 people. This course builds confidence and an understanding of the basic concepts as well as emphasising self-regulation so that clients can successfully incorporate and use TRE® to cope with the stressful demands of their day-to-day life.
Over the years that I have taught and facilitated TRE®, I have been constantly amazed and excited by the incredible shifts and changes that my clients have experienced, usually within a short period of time. As witness to similar positive changes in many clients, I remain motivated to continue sharing this hugely empowering technique.
In 2014, I was introduced to TRE® and subsequently trained as a practitioner, a decision that has indelibly changed my life while providing me with another powerful method to assist myself and others using a noncognitive, effective mind-body and natural modality that produces astounding results.
I am also the co-founder of a growing digital personal growth and wellness brand, Eneegma Unlocked. Working with people from all walks of life and assisting them to develop their strengths and achieve overall well-being brings me great satisfaction.”

“As a life coach specialising in the field of recovery from addiction, I soon noticed that with many people entering recovery, there is past trauma. In fact, the very nature of a substance using lifestyle is traumatic. This trauma was getting in the way of change.
To recover requires being open to learning new life skills and practicing these, and when the body mind is in a state of tension/trauma, new learning is virtually impossible. That’s where TRE® comes in, in that the process gradually brings people out of the survival response into the thrive response, and real change has a chance of taking hold.
Recovery is sustained by creating a life worth staying clean for, and in this respect I encourage an approach informed by Integral theory, positive psychology, as well as more traditional approaches. All of which become more easily available once the nervous system gentles down through TRE® practice.”
