Learn how to Release from Grief in Hampshire

The news in the last week reminds us that our Princes William and Harry suffered trauma in their lives as a result of losing their mother, their Mental Health has suffered as a result. They encourage us all to heal from grief.  You can learn how to do this in our TRE Workshop in Hampshire on the 29th April 2017. 

An extremely traumatic experience it must have been for the princes at the loss of their mother Princess Diana and then having to walk in a parade with the coffin followed by the eyes of millions around the world. Of course, they would have to have been extremely brave and very hard for the young princes. Prince Harry has now said that he has had counselling and feels much better for dealing with it. He took his time as he resisted for nearly 20 years he said.

Losing a loved one at some point impacts us all.  Whether a parent, child, partner or friend passes away they would not want us to suffer for the rest of our lives. The princes are encouraging us to take on our grief in that we should actively do something about it.

Unfortunately, counselling is not something that all can or want to use to help them through.   There is another way to can take control of grief with a ‘no talking’ physical practice.

In our Workshop in Hampshire on the 29th April you can learn how to release your symptoms from grief.  You will be guided through the process of activating your body’s own release mechanism helping you get over the physical, mental and emotional pain from your loss so that you can start living your life again.

The Total Release Experience is a powerful solution that helps you to heal.

By joining the TRE UK Workshop in Hampshire you will learn to activate your body’s own ability to release.  Once you have learned how to activate your own body’s release mechanism you will be able to carry on the practice in the comfort of your own home.

We provide you in a one day workshop an in-depth understanding, guidance, and support on how your body can heal itself from your loss,  trauma, stress, anxiety or heal from PTSD and build resilience so that you can deal better with whatever life brings to your table.

We run workshops around the country we are in Awbridge, Hamsphire on the 28th April 2017. Find out how learning the Total Release Experience with TRE UK has helped many others in our shared stories

Don’t suffer for twenty years.

The Zebra Meets a Terrorist

The Zebra Meets a Terrorist

The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines “terror” as a state of intense fear. The problem with experiencing terrorist attacks such as today’s on Westminster Bridge and the Houses of Parliament is the lasting physical effect of that stressful event. After experiencing fear, whether as somebody involved in the incident, witnessing it directly, or watching it on the news, we move into a state of anxiety – and this perpetual state of fear lasts longer and causes chronic stress.

The problem is that our bodies respond to fear by activating it for the “fight-or-flight” response. The ability to act quickly in a threatening situation is essential in circumstances such as a terrorist attack. It allows police, for example, to handle the situation quickly and efficiently.

However, when we do not use the body’s mobilized energy for to fight or run, we store that energy inside. And every time we watch the news, we are reminded of the tragic event and our bodies respond with stress. Every time we see more pictures on social media, our bodies instinctively react to the threat and, again, go into stress.

One cannot escape terrific news unless one turns off the telly. One cannot really avoid the anxiety from watching the news. But one can manage the stress with which our bodies automatically respond by releasing it through our innate ability to shake it off. Just like animals do in the wild after a chase through the Serengeti, we can discharge the stress energy that has us all pumped up with nowhere to go.

Granted, we cannot be completely like the zebra – the British do not take to the African heat too well, and neither do we want be oblivious to world news. Yet especially when the terrible news is close to home and heart, we need to activate the zebra part in us and learn to shake off the remnants of stress and fear that we generate every time we look at Facebook. Only then can we enjoy the good news among the bad. By returning to a balanced state, the zebra (in us) can calmly face the terror. (Dr R Vieth)

Children and Mental Health

For whatever reason, we are living in challenging times.  It is not just adults who suffer mental health problems and PTSD but also children.  We are hearing on our news tonight how 1 in 10 children have a diagnosed mental health problem.

Did you know for all the children suffering, the Total Release Experience can take them back to some normality in their life?  How do I know this?  Because we work with children.  When a 12-year-old says after one practice that she feels less angry, has not self-harmed in a week and feels happier, then there has to be something in it.  TRE UK  now teach the Total Release Experience in schools.  Schools that are bold enough to take a look at what can help their students through the issues that face them.

Peer pressure, hormonal issues, parental pressure, exam pressure, sibling rivalry, bullying, abuse mental or physical and a whole host of other issues that face them.  If children get the chance to learn this powerful, self-help practice which they love, we would take the pressure of our health services and save young people from taking their own lives.   In 2015 that was 231 young people.  It is heartbreaking.

If children can learn to release their stress on tap – what a different generation of adults we will have in the future and how many lives would be saved?

Stress Relief

Stress Relief for all.

When it comes to dealing with stress, we are none of us very good at acknowledging it.   However, the symptoms – even if we mask them from others – are real and can be debilitating.  Our body has a remarkable ability to heal itself.  This self-empowering stress relief technique that gives a ‘Total Release Experience’ has helped many let go of their stress to enjoy a more fulfilling life.

Following a recent Workshop, a client wrote this to share: “READ THIS….trust me it’s worth it. As you all know I’ve recently started my own business and as much as I’m loving every minute, being constantly on the go does take it out of you. So I decided to invest my limited spare time into something that I can honestly say is going to help me for life.

On Sunday I attended a stress relief  workshop run by a wellbeing and personal development business called TRE UK™.   It was  run by a lovely lady called Caroline Purvey  at the Eclipse Yoga Centre in Dover.  So I’ve got to ask you. Do you or have you suffered from STRESS? TENSION? ANXIETY? TRAUMA & POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER? If the answer is yes to any of the above, then I would highly recommend you get in touch with Caroline.

What Caroline and her team teach you is life changing. She teaches you the tools to help your body naturally release from the stresses of life. No pills, no potions, no medical treatments. Just a way to help your body do what it should, when it has been subjected to everyday stresses and strains. And once you know the method, it’s something you can do from home, how good is that? Something that can fit around your busy life! Want to know more?  Get in touch with TRE UK™. Take it from me, it’s 100% worth learning…

ADDICTIONS & STRESS

Addictions & stress are a serious problem.

 Many people come to us for TRE in the UK and from abroad via Skype as they seek help and support,  desperately looking for release from symptoms of stress and anxiety.  What is coming through is how addictions become another problem when seeking a coping mechanism to deal with the physical mental and emotional symptoms of stress and anxiety.  Alcohol and smoking are the most common.  Other coping strategies can include drugs, food, exercise, gambling and spending money.  All these addictions only bring short term comfort but also start to impact the mind and body as the anxiety levels increase further worrying about the effects of the addiction.  When addictions take a hold they impact not just on the individual but also their loved ones, friends and those around in the workplace or community. Addictions become a serious problem.

TRE can help to release the need for addictions.  Clients have shared how TRE has helped them with their addictions

I just wanted to let you know today for me is one year without gambling.  I finally made it!  I’ve just got 12 weeks to go and I will be debt free too.  I guess what I’ve learnt over the past year is how important it is for me to feel safe and that includes financial safety as well and physical and emotional safety.  It is hard to comprehend that a year ago I would have been sitting in front of this laptop destroying and throwing away every last penny I’d worked for and more.  Thank you for your support in helping me get to this point.’

 ‘I have lost half a stone since starting the course.’

  ‘This time last year I was taking 33 pills a day!(mainly consisting of  painkillers) sleeping through most of the day due to chronic fatigue.  As symptoms I suffered are way to numerous to list and I won’t claim

all have disappeared but I am now on only 8 pills a day’

‘Since doing TRE I no longer turn to drink – for me this is the biggest impact’  

‘Six sessions and completely finished with alcohol.  The biggest thing for me was when my sister arrived with a box of wine – I told her to put it straight back in the car’ 

Stress and anxiety are debilitating enough without the effects of addictions draining more from us.  TRE UK™ delivers Courses and Workshops in the UK sharing a  the technique that releases deep held tensions from the body that cause illness and fuel addictions.  TRE is the body’s own natural source of healing and once learnt can bring about a real sense of well being made all the more satisfying as the need for addictions fall away too. 

The hardest thing of course is to recognise that we have the addiction, and then of course it’s about seeking help.  The great thing about TRE is that there is ‘no talking’ involved.  A life changing physical practice that breaks down our wall of wounding and helps us to become the person we are meant to be – happier and with a purpose.

Unpredictable Stress

Unpredictable stress was again in the news  last week, as we read of the demise for the BHS workers.  Learning the company they have worked for, in some cases many years, is coming to an abrupt or unpredictable end.  Even if one tries to stay positive, for many that would be a challenge.  Before too long one is fighting the impact of stress and therein lies the challenge.  The symptoms are often not noticed as being stress  Symptoms may  be a lack of concentration or mood changes.  Other symptoms include sleeplessness, over eating or drinking more.  Before too long one thing leads to another. The thoughts of an unpredictable future start to play over in the mind.  The anticipation of what might happen is a trigger, leading to deeper anxiety.  Anxiety leads to panic then depression, then more anxiety, more panic, more depression.  It is not difficult for the symptoms of stress and anxiety to take over.  Just to get out of bed in the morning becomes a problem.

Life is always going to throw challenges at us.  We may unpredictably find ourselves in stressful situations such as the BHS workers.  What is important is we are aware of stress symptoms.  Whether from stress or anxiety we take positive action before the hold becomes so great our life goes out of control.  When out of control one thing leads to another and before we know it we may well make irrational decisions that can have long and lasting consequences.

Releasing from unpredictable Stress

Instead of holding the symptoms of stress and anxiety in the body we can take up any number of activities that encourage positive thinking and mindfulness.  But instant release is not always possible.  The Total Release Experience allows our bodies to naturally let go of the symptoms rapidly bringing about a positive release making any challenge easier to deal with.

Mental Health Problems – One Solution?

The  BBC this week has covered many reports on the biggest concern the UK has alongside whether to stay in the European Union – Mental Health.  Adults, children, teenagers, any age or gender – no discrepancy.  1 in 4 people will experience mental health issues in the next year according to WHO.   There are many underlying reasons from day to day stresses to deep and complex traumas.

Why is the problem of helping individuals suffering anxiety, depression, IBS and many other symptoms proving so hard to solve?  Could be something to do with the fact that despite all the different treatments and therapies available, the one that really helps has yet to be applied.

 

Every time we are in fight/flight the body contracts, muscles flinch and that included the psoas muscle.  That little known hidden treasure that is a storehouse of blocked emotions and feelings of all life’s experiences.  Like a memory book of our life story and all stored as blocked energy.  Did you know we can get rid of that energy and feel a whole lot better with very little effort?

 

The Total Release Experience teaches you how to activate your tremor mechanism and release the blocked energy that is causing many of your health problems.  Just like animals – we can survive the worst things in life by letting go through a simple practice that is incredibly powerful.  It is cheap, it is natural, no talking and no drug taking.  Visit WWW.TREUK.com  and find out how you can save yourself or a loved one from further mental and physical decline.

“Good Bye My Lover, Goodbye my Friend“

Such moving words by James Blunt that capture feelings after a break up of a relationship.    When so emotionally attached to somebody, it is hard to let go.   This was shared with me by  a close friend.

The words of the song “Did I disappoint you?  Should I be feeling guilty? Or let the Judges frown?”  may play through their mind.   Doubt and loss of self -esteem can be painful and it takes time to recover and some never do.   ‘I can’t sleep or thinks straight’, my friend shared.  ‘I have tried talking to my mum which changes none of the dreadful feelings I have inside and I am drinking way too much but I realise I am just bottling up and supressing my negative feelings.

Listening to her reminded me of my own past heartbreaks.  So one heartache after another we collect more and more pain over time, preventing us being ourselves as we carry the negative emotions into the next relationship.

Our body remembers the pain, stress and anxiety we hold.  Add that to all the other setbacks and traumas that life can throw at us and we start to notice our body’s reaction as it kicks back.  No wonder my friend is feeling so low.  Lack of sleep, feeling helpless, drinking too much as well as symptoms of IBS and emotional all the time, her body was holding blocked energy.

After explaining what was happening to my friend I taught her to activate her body’s natural ability to release this blocked energy and hence release the symptoms of her stress.

Just as she did we can bounce back from a heartache and let go of bad experiences not just in love relationships but any traumatic event.   Releasing negative energy will make you feel more attractive, loving and happier so that your future or current partner can experience you for who you really are without the baggage of the past.

TREUK™ teaches many like my friend the Total Release Experience process so it becomes a lifelong practice.  They are then able to manage their own healing from disappointment; frustration and pain moving onto become a greater lover, friend and partner in their relationships.

The Impact of Trauma

I’m sure many of you have heard about the earthquake that has just happened in Nepal. I am shocked and saddened to see what has happened as the death toll rises in the thousands and nearly eight million people have been affected,

When a tragedy like this happens, the effects go far beyond just physical damage. As the people wait for aid and workers start to clear up the rubble, those in Nepal and also around the world watching are without doubt suffering from the after effects.  It is absolutely normal to feel shock, anger and grief when your house and your livelihood have been ripped apart or you have lost loved ones. It’s also very human to feel those feelings as you watch the disaster on the news – I know that I have felt fear, shock and sadness as I watched the stress and anxiety of others in reports on TV.

If you check in to see how you feel when you hear of such things or see them on media reports, it’s not uncommon to start to feel stress and tension in your body. You may find yourself short of breath, easily irritated and anxious. You can start to worry about those close to you, what would happen if a disaster like that happened in the UK and how you would cope.

This is also known as “Secondary Traumatic Stress” which can happen when an individual hears about the first hand trauma experiences of another.  Its symptoms mimic those of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). People may find themselves re-experiencing personal trauma or notice an increase in arousal and avoidance reactions related to the indirect trauma exposure.

Using TRE in these experiences can be incredibly useful to release the tension and help bring equilibrium to the body and mind. I work with people in emergency services and have seen incredible results using the very simple technique.
