An Oxford Graduate Deborah is qualified as a Group Facilitator, Lomi Lomi Massage therapist, Children’s Yoga Teacher and advanced Reiki practitioner. She started her journey of looking at healing and trauma at the age of 27, when she was medically retired from a 7-year career in the Royal Navy due to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, related to stress, depression, and anxiety. As well as having a thriving Naval Career, she was also a fitness and martial arts instructor but at that point, her life completely ground to a halt.
At that time not so much was known about trauma, and the symptoms she presented to doctors and began looking for answers herself. Deborah now knows, thanks to the study of trauma, that she had chronic trauma symptoms.
Deborah discovered the benefits of yoga and in 2006 also became a children’s yoga teacher. However, she was still locked into a very stressful pattern in her body and started to look at other therapies such as psychosomatic group work, cranial osteopathy and as well as one to one therapy deriving much help from them.
In Jan 2015 Deborah met Caroline (TRE UK’s CEO and lead practitioner) at a Workshop in Llandudno and discovered for herself the benefits of TRE. Deborah felt that in TRE, she had found the missing piece of the jigsaw in her own healing journey. She will never forget the astonishing first TRE sessions at Caroline’s workshop, as her body unblocked areas that had been stuck all her life. It was remarkable and she knew she had come across a very simple, but powerful tool.
Steadily, with home practice, her body released the stuck energy that had kept her trapped in fight/flight/freeze every day. Sometimes the detox was uncomfortable but she kept with the process and this combined with other support, has restored her to a place she never thought possible. Now being able to enjoy life, feel alive, and of knowing how to move the blocked energy when she is not in that place.
Deborah is passionate about passing on this valuable, empowering and affordable self-help tool to others. Deborah say’s ‘I feel honoured to be able to facilitate others during TRE sessions; I am very grateful to be able to work with people in this way and I am proud to be a part of a caring and supportive organisation like TRE UK®’
