TRE® (Tension and Trauma Release Exercises)

TRE® is a simple, body oriented technique that when applied skilfully can result in a profound inner change that will ripple through your personal, professional and social life. Developed by Dr David Berceli, TRE® has helped bring relief from stress, tension and trauma to people all over the world - to those involved in wars, natural disasters, those in the helping professions, and to those dealing with everyday stresses and strains. The TRE® process helps to calm the nervous system, to bring us out of states of activation and dissociation, becoming less reactive, and increasing our capacity to be present to our experience.

At TRE Centre, we pride ourselves in teaching these skills safely and with integrity.

  • Professional Trainings across the UK.

  • Advanced workshops, ongoing supervision and CPD for TRE Providers

The Primary Purpose of TRE   - Cheda Mikic January 2019




The primary purpose of TRE is to allow as much movement, embodiment and presence as possible in any given moment.

In the TRE process, the release of tension, stress and trauma follow as an inevitable result of that primary purpose.

From a neutral attention and listening, from allowing an open space for movement and presence, resolutions will emerge.

The focus of the work is to facilitate a non-judgmental space and the freedom for a person to be seen and heard; to express who they are and what they feel.

Lacking this, we moved away from who we are and took up defence mechanisms in order to feel less pain, less restraint, less isolation.

These ways of adapting may have served us initially, but not any more.  

Given appropriate and timely presence, space and engagement, authentic movement and stillness can once again be re-established.

The aim of TRE is to provide that re-connection.
