Level 1 workshops are open to all members of the public.

All members of the public are able to attend the  Level 1 trainings in order to deepen their experience and understanding of TRE or to learn how to safely lead family and friends through the exercises.

Those seeking Level 1 certification to teach TRE to others on a professional basis  are required to attend a three day Level 1 workshop. They will also  have additional requirements on top of the 3 days of Level 1 training including journalling, reading, supervision and application fees. For full details of the additional requirements for Level 1 Certification, please visit ‘certification training’.

Attending local workshop as first day of level 1 training

As a 1 day public workshop is the essentially the first day of  3 days of  Level 1 training, it is possible to have attended the first day elsewhere and attend the last two days of the of  Level 1 training. Please contact Steph for further information about this.

Precautions to performing TRE/attending workshops

Please contact Stephanie at if you have any concerns about your suitability to perform the TRE exercises in a workshop setting, such as severe physical  injury or health conditions, mental health conditions requiring medication or if you are concerned about the way you may respond to the trauma release process.

Please note (as a precautionary measure only), pregnant women are not advised to perform the exercises but are suggested to attend in order to observe others and learn TRE so they can be used as soon as possible after birth.

What to bring to the workshops

Participants are required to bring a water bottle, wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a thick yoga mat and blankets to all workshops to comfortably lie on a wooden floor for up to 50 minutes. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided with BYO lunch or cafes/shops available nearby.


Privately sponsored workshops for groups and organisations:

Introductory workshops for groups and organisations are available to learn the TRE process as a stress and trauma self management tool. These workshops can be fully sponsored or organised on a per person basis with a minimum number requirement.

If you are interested in hosting a 3 hour workshop for your group, clients or organisation, please contact Stephanie here

Through your warmth, friendliness and openness, and the clarity and professionalism of your facilitation, you created a very safe environment in which we could allow ourselves to fully experience the exercises and tremors.  Afterwards, I felt calm, relaxed, centred, grounded and my mind was still and peaceful (something that happens rarely!)”

Leigh Ford, Counsellor
