“I was feeling low over the weeks and called for a session with Cassandra. Something mind blowing followed in the following few days... I had clarity and a certain freedom to stand up for what I needed to do; the creative juices overflowed.”
“Ayden (10) being very sensitive about his body, feels confidence and calmness after every session. I’m thankful that as a parent, I get to understand my child's emotions better – especially the hidden emotions which children might not know how to share. I’m glad we started TRE and hope more people out there can benefit from this Tension Release Exercise.”
“After the session, I experienced a calmness and my thoughts weren’t all over the place. I felt grounded. Cassandra is excellent as a guide”
My two sons and my husband are my greatest teachers.
And although I’ve always believed in somatic coaching, I embraced TRE® because of my son.
One day, my elder boy came home from school with his shoulders drooped, his head hanging down as if he was defeated.
As a trained ontological coach, I could immediately tell his “contracting” position meant he was feeling negative. I approached him with care and asked what happened.
His reply shook me to the core.
He said his school teacher said he must do well for his school examination or he would be a good for nothing… that he would be a failure.(this is what he heard)
For the first time in his life, my son said he was stressed. He was only 9 years old! I was furious!
Another motivation for me is the disturbing story of the Stanford undergraduate who raped an unconscious woman. You may have heard he was only sentenced to 6 months in jail.
It was so upsetting. The medical report that said the victim would remember this tragedy for the rest of her life – her body memory would remind her every time she is in contact with someone else.
I asked myself, “What life is this young woman going to lead? How cruel and painful is it for her to be reminded of something she is not responsible for?”
When TRE® presented itself as a tool for healing tension and PTSD, I never turned back. I wanted to learn a skill that could help anyone live successfully again, not being punished and being able to march courageously forward and live a triumph life.
As a certified coach trained in multiple modalities, it’s my passion to bring stress release, emotional intelligence tools and transformative techniques to help individuals, families, teams and oragnizations resolve conflicts and achieve fulfilment.
