Rediscover how liberating it is to be – and live from – your authentic centre with this 8 week course.

About TRE and Positive Psychology Coaching

As stand-alone modalities, both TRE (Stress and Tension releasing exercises) and Positive Psychology Coaching are very powerful. As a combined modality it shifts up a notch as both the vital centres in the brain that are used for change, are activated.

 TRE activates the limbic, or primitive brain area, where automatic functions emanate such as breathing, digestion and very specifically, the message to release adrenalin and cortisol when stress is experienced. By doing 6 gentle exercises, we activate neurogenic tremors to shake off the unreleased and incomplete stress cycles in the body. As the tremors emanate from the limbic brain, we do not reassociate into the original trauma or stress.

 For lasting change while loosening old patterns, we need to create new neural pathways, which is the domain of the neo-cortex in the brain. And that is where Positive Psychology Coaching is so useful. It is not traditional psychotherapy – it is a breakthrough methodology using specific coaching techniques and interventions to create lasting change by rediscovering what is going right in our lives, and building on that.
