Frequently Asked Questions

We have gathered the most common questions students ask us before enrolling in the Gentle Trauma Release © Method Certification Training. Please, click on the “plus” sign to reveal the answers.

Do I need to have an academic background in order to do this training?

You don’t need an academic background in order for us to welcome you to our Certification Training as a student. Having said that, we consider this program to be an advanced type of training. This is why we do require that you have at least some coaching, counseling or therapeutic training under your belt and that you have conducted at least 30 one-on-one client sessions as either a coach, counselor or therapist.

If you have not conducted 30 one-on-one client sessions or if you’re not sure if your experience counts, please let us know about that in the Application Form. Tell us what you have done and why you think this Training would be a good fit for you. There is specific place in the Appliction Form for you to elaborate on this.

I have no background in trauma. Will this training work for me?

This training is designed to work whether you have some background in trauma or not. It teaches you everything you need to know about trauma in order to do excellent trauma release work. In fact, we originally put this training together to help practitioners who don’t have any formal trauma-related training and yet, they encounter trauma on a regular basis when working with clients in coaching, counseling or therapeutic settings.

If, on the other hand, you already have some background in trauma, the training will work beautifully for you as well, because what we teach is a completely innovative, non-mainstream method to healing trauma.

I already have some background in the field of trauma. Will this training be too basic for me?

No, this training won’t be basic for you at all. A vast majority of what we teach is not commonly taught on other platforms.

If you already have some background in trauma, the training will work for you simply because what we teach is a completely innovative, non-mainstream method to healing trauma.


Is there a schedule I need to follow?

At the beginning of each week, we will send you a Monday Check-In email to release study plans and homework for a particular week. This is to provide our students with an accountability structure.

However, you are more than welcome to do things at your own pace since everything is recorded. You have 18 months to finish the program whether you choose to proceed along with us or on your own. 

Should you not manage to complete the training within 18 months, don’t fear. You can ask for an extension and continue your studies.

How much time will I need to invest weekly to proceed through the training at a good pace?

If you follow the suggested weekly study plans that we will release every week, you will need to spend about 6-8 hours per week going through the training at a good pace. However, bear in mind that this is an estimate that might differ from one student to another. Some students might need less time, some might need more.

To help you go through the training smoothly, we will add catch-up study weeks into our study schedule. That way you can compensate for some of those less productive weeks should you have them.

If you follow the weekly study plans suggested in the Monday Check-In emails, you will finish the theoretical part of the training in about 6 months. But because you’ll be asked to complete the Practicum part, you will have 18 months to finish the whole training. Should you not manage to complete the training in time, you will have the opportunity to ask for an extension and complete your studies at a later point.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

We are confident about the immense value of our training, but we also believe that the fit must be mutual. We want things to work for you and we want this training to authentically resonate with you.

If for some reason, you don’t wish to continue, you have the opportunity to opt-out with a 100% money-back guarantee. We only ask that you do so within the first 14 days of the training.

Before you start the training, you’ll be asked to sign an agreement stating that you will respect our Copyrights and not to use, distribute or copy any of the materials and content we provided you with. You will also be asked to destroy any copies of our materials you may have made.

Provided that you respect these conditions, we guarantee you a no-questions-asked refund.

What kind of help and support is available if I get stuck?

We incorporated an enormous amount of support into this training. Here are the different ways to get it in a nutshell:


  • VIP Office Hours with your teacher
  • Private Facebook Group where the Gentle Trauma Release Institute staff hangs out every day
  • One-On-One Mentorship Session with your teacher customized personally to you
  • Personalized Comments to your written assignments
  • Gentle Trauma Release Institute staff that you can reach via email any time
Is there a next level to this training?

For the time being, we consider the Gentle Trauma Release Method © Certification Training so comprehensive and wholesome that we don’t see the need for another level of training of a similar format. Once you go through the training and complete your practice hours, you will have everything you need to incorporate the Gentle Trauma Release Method © into your work.

Having said that, we have a post-certification support system in place for our graduates. It is called The Graduate Club. The Graduate Club is our way of keeping you GTR-updated , expanding your knowledge in the areas of Psychology, Coaching, Client Personality Typology and more. It includes practical business and marketing materials, too. The Graduate Club allows you to have your Microsite built and maintained by us and gives you access to a Social Media Kit. Being a Graduate Club member will make it possible for you to attend regular Virtual Office Hours as well, including our Soulful Business Labs. We will provide you with detailed information on the Graduate Club once you become a graduate. Either way, we won’t “abandon” you after you become a certified Gentle Trauma Release © Practitioner. We will continue to support you.

What if I can't take the training right now? Will it be offered in the future?

At this stage, we are planning on running the training twice a year -in September and February. We might transition into opening only one class per academic year in the future. But either way, we are here to stay.

Make sure that you don’t miss the enrollment dates and promotions by signing up to one of our email lists and we will keep you in the loop.


What will I graduate with?

You will graduate with the designation Gentle Trauma Release © Practitioner which you’ll be able to officially use from the moment of your graduation. 

A diploma released by the Gentle Trauma Release Institute will also be mailed to you right after you pass your Final Exam and graduate. 

What is the overall cost of this certification training?

At this point, we offer the Gentle Trauma Release Method © Certification Training at $7497 USD. We offer a selection of payment plans to make the training more doable for our students. Payment plans are offered once the student application has been approved.

Is this for my own healing, as well?

The Gentle Trauma Release© Certification Training was primarily designed to teach the Gentle Trauma Release Method© and to train students in it so that they can use it in their own client practice.

Having said that, the healing is usually and happy and inevitable by-product of taking the Training. This is because you will be asked to practice the GTR© healing protocols on yourself before applying them on others. Also, personal healing happens organically as students dive into the learning materials (e.g. watching the GTR© video Case Studies) or by participate in the Virtual Office Hours where others share their own healing stories or their client healing stories.

You don’t have to do much for your healing to happen when taking the GTR© Training. It usually takes a natural, organic course.
