Founder of the School of relational bodywork

Julian Marcus Treble

Supporting you to live aligned with your deepest calling
through joyful creativity and service

Background Bio - Julian Marcus:

For the past 12 years I have been living and working mainly here in Portugal although have moved around the country a fair bit. I am a father to my beautiful 11 year old son Dylan and engaged, at long last, to my longterm partner Jayne. I practice and teach when home in Algarve & Lisbon as well as holding teaching clinics and trainings abroad.

My other professional passion is photography, both stills and video. I have worked as a photographer and videographer alongside my bodywork for over 20 years and these days my team mainly support practitioners with personal branding and productions for positive change makers.

I love my work with the public very much and also particularly enjoy supporting practitioners with their learning edges in service to private practice through my supervision, teaching clinic and business mentoring. I love supporting others in service who are also drawn to walk a path of body-based or embodied wisdom to further trust their innate intelligence to serve life as it organises itself through us in the therapeutic relationship.

The focus of my work with practitioners is:

Supporting person-centred practitioners to live in alignment with their deepest calling to serve and facilitate lasting growth and change

In this relational bodywork practice we are without a doubt supporting others in living liberated and freer from the burdens of internalised patterns that hinder naturalness, joy and wellness. We share practices naturally rooted in the body and informed by our inner-capacity for moment to moment felt relationship, calling us to move into co-regulation and follow the innate unfolding session plan within clear agreements and client containers. These processes allow for self-updates that are in rhythm with this naturally emerging and organising intelligence of our deeper being and so tend to be well within our resilient capacity for change while promoting growth and transformation that is stable and long lasting.

I practice and teach both online and in person with a strong focus on our supervision teaching clinics where practitioner can come and deepen their practice together in inspirational connection and community with others.

I have always loved to be connected to nature and the feeling of being vital and alive whether that comes from climbing trees, being in the mountains, wild-swimming in fresh water or merging the element through Tao practices, Chi Kung and forests bathing.

My grandmother, mother and father were all practitioners of a mixture of voice work, Tai chi, Yoga and personal development; so from a young age I was exposed to these worlds of complementary health and conscious approaches to living for which I feel deeply blessed and grateful. Human behaviour, relating and the seeming duality of peace and human suffering have long driven me to reflect on my best path and choice of work given that to support people out of suffering and into a more joyful life seemed like the most fulfilling "job" one could possibly have. I believe that is true today for me now more than ever as I have gained more and more skills and experience doing just that.

I remember sharing my childlike-joy for what I know now as healthy joyful embodiment with friends through play and nature immersion time together. That’s the first time I felt this connection to my purpose; it had to do with helping people enjoy being in their bodies and really feel alive.

I love to work, where possible, in person with body-based touch or embodiment practices and have in recent years (2020-2022) been invited by peers to complete some further such trainings; namely in Somatic Sexology, Embodied Sex coaching and a Certificate in Somatic Sex Education. For the past few years I have been teaching similar topics on various international Somatic Sexology trainings and holding my own in UK and Portugal. I have very much enjoyed and been enriched by this work and it has transformed my private practice both in scope and focus. This powerful experience and new approaches enabled me to transform the way I now teach other practitioners both on these named pathways and support with continuing practitioner development post certification. I enjoy working with practitioners online and in person where I bring many other elements from my two decade long bodywork background to the work we do in the teaching clinic and courses here at The School of Relational Bodywork.

Today, as a natural progression of these more recent 8 years of trainings in embodiment, consent and sacred sexual somatics, I now love to help individuals with their erotic embodiment creating session and workshop containers to experience their happiest, healthiest sexual selves. I have guided many people in all kinds of ways from around the world on how to experience greater erotic pleasure, create more experience of love for their body, improve intimate connections through communication, identifying needs and desires and therefore experience happier, healthier expressions of their individual eros.
