Get in touch to join us Deadline to apply is Sunday 19th September.
A somatic method of inquiry into how the your past shows up in your present interactions, Gabor Mate's Compassionate Inquiry (CI) is a marvellous way to examine attitudes, problems and stuck situations and emotions.
I will be running a 6 week online group with guest CI practitioners, and a few other somatic facilitators. which will allow you to take that deeper look at what may be troubling you and what needs healing.
This will be an experiential series, and participants are asked to attend all 6 x 1.5 hour group therapy sessions. In the groups, we will use various techniques to look at trauma and work towards resolvement and healing. As it is our second time running this, we are working with a suggested donation participation in the group.
For some information on CI please take a look here, and if you are keen, please fill in the details below and I will send through more about the group.
There are a maximum of 20 spaces and a commitment to 6 weeks of 1.5 hour sessions.
Limited, means tested scholarships available.
From 26th May to 7 July each Wednesday for 1hr 15 minutes we will meet online to deepen our TRE practice. A regular group of international tremorers forms the core of this group, which is facilitated by TRE providers who are also therapists and counsellors. Its a great way to broaden practice in a safe space.
As we move into the 2nd level of CI training, we will once again have space for a few people to engage in free therapeutic sessions in exchange for recordings that we will use with our trainers to work on our technique.
Compassionate Inquiry, developed by Canadian physician Dr Gabor Mate, looks at what lies beneath the appearance that we present to the world, and examines older patterns and core beliefs that shape the way we engage. It's a powerful way to examine yourself.

A precis of how the CI therapy-for-vids structure works:-
My fellow therapists-in-training and I are entering into the practicum phase of the certification process and are looking for volunteers to work with.
The sessions are around 45 minutes and held over zoom (and, of course, are completely free of charge). We would record them in order for us to use them with our facilitators to assess our skill levels. You can sign up for one and see if it’s something that resonates with you, and if it does, you can continue with the same therapist for 6 sessions in total.
If we know each other personally I would refer you to another therapist. We have hypnotherapists, bodyworkers, NLP practitioners, all upskilling with CI, as part of this venture.
If this is something you would like to try please register through the Contact section.
I will be in touch, and if all seems appropriate you would need to sign a consent and medical form prior to any sessions taking place, which also gives us permission to record.
P.S. there will also be group and low cost private opportunities, which will not be filmed. Info coming in the next month.
Our first TRE session of the year begins next week on January 27th and the group sessions on February 3rd. You need to take the intro before attending the group, unless you have tremored before.
Its a remarkably effective way to deal with stress, insomnia, back pain, fatigue, physical issues, autoimmune conditions. We have also had people working with tinnitus, with scoliosis... Because TRE® works with your own nervous system in its self regulation, it has the capacity to help an enormous number of problems. Sign up to our intro and see for yourself!
"I'm so glad Shalini introduced me to TRE. Although I was slightly apprehensive about the process being too intense, the tremoring ended up being so gentle and natural -- a pleasant and effective release. I found TRE to be an extremely powerful healing modality. It bypasses the analytical mind and allows for the body's innate intelligence to do what it needs to do. Every session allowed for tension, blocked emotions and stored trauma to be released.
I felt deeply relaxed after each session and slept better. I highly recommend it" Lara M
Please join us for an hour-long presentation on TRE® - how it works, & what it could do for you. If you have sleep problems, tension and tightness, back pain, anxiety and stress, emotional troubles, inflammation, tinnitus, PTSD, and a host of somatic problems, this could be most helpful.
Thursday 21st January 9.00 PST, 12.00 EST, 17.00 GMT, 18.00 CET, 19.00 SAST, 20.00 EAT
"My sessions have been absolutely astounding. I really think my entire spine has been going through a complete realignment, and possibly a scoliosis I've always had is straightening. whoa."
"My TRE miracle is that my back pain left on the first session and hasn't returned."
"Tinnitus, my constant companion for many years, has toned down. It seems less pervasive this evening, and continued to reduce . . . ."
I can feel that my pelvis has shifted and find it much easier to walk."
"I feel so grateful for the calm that comes after most sessions for me."
We have been running these online beginner TRE groups all year, and the feedback has been remarkable. Its an unusual modality - looks weird, and isn't that easy to describe.
But all it is ultimately is the activation of a natural body mechanism, prevalent in all mammals, and used in many cultures over generations to process stressors.
In our rushed busy modern day lives disassociated often from the natural rhythms and requirements of our bodies, we have forgotten how to use and to engage this mechanism. If you want to find out more about how to work with TRE®, please register to join us for a free live talk where you will be able to ask questions and learn more about getting your shake-on.
The groups are confidential, international, memorable, and very helpful.
We will also be working with parents and adolescents/teenagers this year - co regulation is very helpful in fractious households, and with Covid pressures, learning to tremor could be a family game-changer.
