Do you feel like you live life on the edge, just one tiny spark away from exploding – or rather, imploding?
Even though you really want to be the glass-half-full person, does life sometimes just feel tiring, overwhelming and quite simply, more than you can manage?
Do you feel like you really are Chicken Little, constantly on the lookout for the sky falling on your head?
We’re so used to living in a non-stop state of heightened anxiety that we often don’t even notice just how
sub-par our lives have become. We’re busy, for sure, doing things and striving for things and achieving
seemingly important goals but actually, on the inside, we feel far more like blithering wreck than the
superhuman we project.
TRE is for those who want to be well. It will help you release tension, manage stress, relieve anxiety and reduce pain. Regular practice will help you learn how to take better care of you and help keep you physically, mentally and emotionally well.
Living in a permanently ‘on-guard’ state has damaging consequences for our bodies, our relationships, our performance at work and home and our overall health and wellbeing. TRE is a simple but powerful self-care tool you can use anytime you need to restore calm, peace and balance.
Learning TRE could be one of the best investments you make in your mental and physical wellness.
Coach Brenda Wille
Type Individual / group TRE sessions and coaching
Place Waimauku, Auckland or online using Skype, Zoom or FaceTime
Suitable For People who want to manage stress, relieve anxiety, reduce pain or release tension
After each of the 3 TRE sessions I had with Brenda, I noticed a subtle shift in my energy which lasted a few days after the session. After my first session, I had the best night’s sleep I have had in years! And after the following two sessions, I definitely felt a sense of balance and calm, physically and emotionally, which lasted for at least 2 days afterwards.
Having your guidance through each exercise helped me to relax and trust the process.
I would definitely recommend TRE to others, especially to those who are holding onto past trauma or anxiety.
You were an excellent coach, aware of each individual, watching them closely and giving immediate assistance to any discomfort, adjusting exercise positions and giving good reminders to breathe!
TRE uses a series of gentle exercises that stretch and fatigue various muscles and help the body release patterns of stress and deep muscular tension. The exercises induce natural tremors and help the body shake off stress and release and unwind muscle tension. This natural shaking mechanism calms the nervous system and assists the body to return to a state of balance. Learn more about TRE.
I offer a range of classes and programmes to help you learn TRE:
This 3-day experiential workshop is perfect if you want to learn about and practice a technique you can use for your own health, healing and self-care.
A regular TRE practice can leave you feeling more energised, more in control, less stressed, mentally stronger, able to cope better under pressure and more patient with your children, family or at work.
TRE can also be used by professionals whose work supports those affected by stress, tension, anxiety and trauma and who want to add a body-based, self-empowering technIque to their existing services. This workshop is the first step in the TRE Global Certification Training Programme (GCTP) for those who want to learn how to use TRE in a therapeutic or healing context with their own clients.
A TRE Taster session is perfect for those who want to try TRE. In the class, you’ll get an overview of what TRE is, how it developed and how it can help you manage stress, relieve anxiety, reduce pain and release tension.
In experiencing TRE for yourself, you’ll get to connect with your body so you feel re-energised, revitalised and refreshed.
A TRE Foundation Package is perfect for those who want to master the basics of TRE. Classes can be conducted in private 1 on 1 sessions or as part a group. In four sessions, I’ll help you understand more about TRE so you start developing the confidence to do TRE on your own, anywhere, any time.
The TRE Foundation Package will help you learn TRE and experience self regulation in a safe environment. We’ll have time to discuss whatever questions arise as you learn this unique self-care method and build a strong foundation for your own home practice.
This 12 session programme will be completely customised for you. We’ll start with a thorough assessment of what’s not working in your life and what you’d like to change. Once we know what the end goal is, we’ll map a path together to the life you want. We’ll use a combination of TRE, mind-body, personal development and life management skills and tools to help you build a rich, full and meaningful life.
Always exploring with gentle curiosity, we’ll put together a plan that helps you manage stress, relieve anxiety, reduce pain and release tension so you improve your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing. You’ll practice tools and techniques that help you develop the skills and confidence you need to navigate challenging life events with intention, vitality and passion.
Flexible and practical, The Deep Shake will give us time to look at the long-standing patterns in your life from a fresh perspective and come up with solutions that are right for you.
Learning TRE as part of a group can add an exciting dimension to your TRE experience. There’s something about the energy of a group that’s quite magical.

TRE ‘Drop In’ Refresher Groups
I also run regular Refresher Groups for those who’ve completed a TRE Foundation programme or have had prior experience of TRE. These groups are for those who have learned TRE, want to build a consistent practice and explore more of what TRE has to offer in a supportive and encouraging group environment. Drop in Groups cost $30 and last for 90 minutes. Classes can be bought individually, although I am offering a concession card for $135 (10% discount) if you buy 5 classes at a time.
More information is available about Refresher Groups here.
Groups are always limited in size to ensure all participants receive the time and attention they need.
If you have a group of family members, friends or colleagues who want to learn TRE together, I’d be happy to put together a customised programme for you. Get in touch and we can create an experience that’s perfect for you.
TRE can also be used by professionals whose work supports those affected by stress, tension, anxiety and trauma and who want to add a body-based, self-empowering technIque to their existing services.
This includes therapists, counsellors, social workers, occupational therapists, osteopaths, physiotherapists, doctors, chiropractors, cranio-sacral therapists, bodyworkers, coaches, parents, teachers, fitness instructors and others in alternative health fields.
Those who wish to teach TRE to others or use it as a therapeutic technique will need to certify as TRE Providers. This requires completion of the full TRE Global Certification Training Programme (GCTP). Supportive and collaborative, the process is designed to ensure trainees develop a range of skills and competencies to ensure they can share TRE with individuals and groups confidently and competently. The certification process takes about 12 months to complete from the start of Module 1, depending on each trainee’s progress.
Plans for the next GCTP in New Zealand are currently under review. Full GCTP details are available on request – please contact me at email@example.com.
