Relationship between Adverse Childhood Experiences and Adult Well-Being

Relationship between Adverse Childhood Experiences and Adult Well-Being

Adverse Childhood Experiences are those traumatic events that lead to negative and long-lasting effects on the health and well-being of an individual. They can be anything ranging from sexual abuse, losing a close loved one due to a traumatic incident to the divorce of your parents. Such experiences not only increase the odds of struggle but have an adverse effect on the health and behaviour of individuals when they grow up.

There are many short and long-term impacts of cumulative childhood trauma with most commonly reported cases relating to substance abuse and household physical abuse. According to studies, some adults have experienced at least one instance of household dysfunction or childhood abuse before the age of 18.

You can not underestimate the importance of a child’s relationship with the caregiver. It’s through these relationships that children learn to trust one another, interact with one another and regulate their emotions. When these relationships become unstable, it gives them the feeling that they cannot rely on anyone else for help. They start to see the world through a different lens and have a more pessimistic approach towards the things in life as they believe nothing good ever lasts.

Most of the abused or neglected children have trouble building strong healthy relationships with others. They are more vulnerable to stress and may react inappropriately or violently to normal situations. Children who have a history of complex trauma may also face issues with their romantic relationships, authority figures, and friends.

Childhood experiences greatly affect who we become as adults and if not dealt with carefully in the beginning, can lead to serious mental health issues.

There is a strong relationship between adult well-being and childhood trauma. In such cases, mental health strategies should be incorporated to prevent the impacts at the early stages of life such as counseling.

Much of our work is supporting adults wanting to heal from the scars of childhood trauma.  The body has a wonderful way of letting go of the past with the most natural healing practice of the Total Release Experience®  No talking, or interventions and so easy to learn with our support.  A one day Workshop and you can live a different life –with hope.  See what others have said

Self-Care at last

January 30, 2018 in blog

We are told now that instead of queuing up and clogging up the Drs Surgeries we must look to self-care.  What are the options?  Expensive treatment? Talking? Self-medication? Now there is the Total Release Experience® (the TRE)  a liberating “no-talking” practice for everyone and can help to release, even eradicate symptoms of stress, tension, pain, anxiety, and trauma, leaving you more resilient in mind and body.

Some of us can find ourselves on a downward spiral. Perhaps caused by work stress, grief due to the loss of a loved one, perhaps traumatic events, abuse on a mental, physical or sexual level and the cumulative effects of all that we have experienced in our life, since birth. There is no escape from the pressures of life.

As a result, we can suffer symptoms from stress, anxiety, depression and other mental health problems, panic attacks, IBS, PTSD, CPTSD, at worst cancer, obesity, suicidal tendencies, stroke, heart attack or diabetes. Take a closer look at the Total Release Experience®.  We can all can now take charge of our mental, emotional and physical health by allowing our body to heal itself using its own natural release mechanism, as many others have discovered.

It is not just our own life experiences that affect our health and especially our mental health but those of others that we deal with. This may be colleagues or our opposites in work and life. Which is, of course, extreme for those in the Military also still for the Veterans, Prison service, Police, Fire service, Medical professions and Carers. Teachers too have very stressful jobs.  We often see and hear how celebrities, politicians and some members of our Royal Family face mental health issues from life traumas and stressful experiences.

Stress affects everyone, and we all need to regularly release in order to stay healthy and happy.  Investing in a Total Release Experience® course or Workshop will give you a stress release tool that you can use for the rest of your life. Cost-effective and you feel the difference straight away. Start to break the downward spiral and turn it around.  Once down the only way is up!  Maybe it is time for a rethink when it comes to self-care.

Everyday Dealings of the Service Sector and Their Mental Health

December 21, 2017 in blog

The topic mental health is an extremely popular one. It is talked about frequently. Those suffering from mental illnesses like stress, anxiety, PTSD, and tension are encouraged to come out and be open about their emotions.  They all seek help so that there are no long-term implications. This allows the healing process to be successful.

However, people who are forgotten when talking about the impact of bad mental health are the ones that include all first responders.  Firemen, paramedics, and policemen require mental health assistance the most.  They deal with traumatic incidents and cases on duty on a daily basis.   Not least at this time of year.

Not every firefighting incident is completely successful. Some accidents leave vehicles too damaged to save anyone riding inside. The same way there are robberies and kidnappings that go wrong.  All of these adversely impact the mental health of firemen, police officers and paramedics significantly. Learning to deal with anxiety and tension attached to the jobs of these people is something that is vital and cannot be ignored.

Coping with the daily emotional struggles is a problem.  As one becomes attached to their career, most first respondents end up distancing themselves from such situations.  They desensitize themselves so that they can do their jobs properly.  However, the occurrences still have a negative effect on their mental health which builds up over time and eventually becomes too much to handle for some people.  The high tension and anxiety levels lead to addiction to drugs and alcohol and in some extreme cases to suicide.

The jobs of firefighters, paramedics and policemen entail high pressure and require a great deal of involvement. While some cases may be easier to move past, some incidents stay with the first respondents and haunt them for a long time.  This impacts their work, personal lives and that of those around them.  Worst of all their mental health.

Having mandatory rehab sessions and programs for all first respondents should be a top priority of the authorities if they want efficient and healthy people working to save the lives of others.  The good mental health of these people is essential for the safety of others and their own.  Dealing with mental health issues that come with the stress, anxiety, trauma, and tensions attached to these jobs is crucial.  The Total Release Experience® is a  most cost-effective powerful practice for all service sector heroes.  We have had great results with those we have worked with.  No talking, no medicines, and self-help. Let’s think of them all this Christmas.

Incorporate Organic Fruits and Vegetables in Your Diet

Many health problems are linked to a high level of acidity in the body. The acidity causes inflammation which in turn leads to numerous diseases and illnesses. In order to have a better health, it’s important to alkalize your body as much you can by eating fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds that are the optimal food items for the human body. What’s even better is making these organic foods yourself in order to avoid harmful toxins. By eating the right meal you can help to improve your physical and mental health.

Get a Massage

Getting a massage is a great way to relax and release toxins. They are bound to make you feel stress-free and release the build-up of toxins and tension in your body. The comfort and soothing effect you feel in your body after a massage aids your body’s healing system in the long run. Consider it a treat to yourself and an opportunity to give your mind and body a boost.

Drink Sufficient Water

You need to make sure that your body is properly hydrated otherwise dehydration can lead to fatigue, headaches and create numerous other discomforts in your body. Water is needed to perform all of the functions of the body, especially when it comes to the digestive system. By increasing your water intake to a sufficient level, you can significantly improve your body’s natural detoxification process.


Exercise is free, a brisk walk on a clear day. A run or jog keeps the limbs moving and the joints from creaking.  You may want to join a class maybe Pilates or Yoga may swim so you keep the body moving.  There are lots of other physical ways to keep your body mobile and flexible as much as you can.

Get proper sleep

A lack of sleep can be detrimental to your health and body. Your body needs time to restore, detox and heal itself. One of the best times for your body to do so is when you are sleeping. If you don’t get enough hours of sleep, you are likely to have health issues and anxiety you wouldn’t normally experience. The cells in our body heal when sleep restfully. Therefore, it is imperative to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep at night.

Using these and other natural remedies you can find lasting solutions at home and save yourself from developing further mental and health issues.

Learn how to Release from Grief in Hampshire

April 24, 2017 in blog, Mental Health

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

March 22, 2017 in blog

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

January 13, 2017 in blog, 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 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

May 2, 2016 in blog

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.
