What people have said…Accreditations

“I’ve been carrying tension around in my body for years –
now it’s calmer and I feel a weight is off my shoulders.”

“It has given me my family back.”

“There are other people out there who go through this & they should be able to know about this treatment.”

It’s been a real eye opener to realize this type of help is available for trauma.

Thank you so so much. Without this I might not be here today…literally.

An excellent session – schools would be much better places if staff were offered more opportunities like these.

It was so good to have an opportunity to talk honestly and confidentially and be given such effective support. Thank you.

Claire used a variety of strategies and techniques to move me beyond traditional ‘talking’ methods to understand what motivates me professionally and personally. I particularly like the use of art techniques as a way of sharing ideas from my subconscious.

The pace of the session was excellent and gave plenty of time for reflection. Although there was a clear structure, I didn’t feel as if I was being led by someone else’s agenda. I felt really nurtured and ‘heard’ by Claire. I felt able to really express some of my underlying passions about work and what motivates me in life, without worrying that I would be judged professionally.

Best lecture so far!

You really engaged with me and have given me insight into something I knew nothing about before. Thank you!

Truly inspiring.

Just want to thank you for such a helpful session. I feel like I have learnt so much about how to deal with situations that happen…


Very powerful. Thought provoking.

What an inspiring session! Thank you for the opportunity to be part of it.

Excellent talk – thank you Claire.

Just wanted to say a huge thanks for your input over the past couple of weeks. I finally felt like someone ‘on the outside’ understood. You gave me the energy to revisit my practice with the case in question and also to plan support for the family for the future. I cannot thank you enough.


Thanks Claire for teaching me so carefully and tracking me through this journey – I can’t quite put into words the difference TRE is making.
Just sort of life changing and fab 😉
