The Testimonial from a Carer
‘It was a strange and difficult time, and the TRE was as beneficial to me as it was to my daughter Sally! The whole experience was extremely calming and filled me with the hope that the body/mind could heal itself. Caroline has created a lovely positive, unchallenging and supportive space in the centre.
I felt very vulnerable about Sally’s recovery and future, but Caroline’s quiet support and acceptance of her condition made me feel brave and hopeful. Thank you for that, Caroline! It meant the world to me. It felt like an oasis of sanity in a chaotic, frantic and upsetting time. Caring for someone experiencing acute psychosis is a scary and bewildering undertaking. I had always felt uncomfortable with medication as the solution but was told by the professionals there was nothing else they were aware of that would help.
Talking therapies would have been useless as Sally had delusions and could not express herself clearly (although if you knew her, you would recognise themes and concerns in her rhymes and metaphors). The TRE, however, was perfect because it does not need words or concentration or focus. It just happens……amazing! I know it helped us both so much.
