What is TRTP?

TRTP™ is short for The Richards Trauma Process. TRTP™ is a very simple yet comprehensive form of therapy resolves extreme trauma & trauma related issues such as depression, anxiety, phobias, sleep issues, anger issues, relationship issues, and so much more. 


TRTP™ includes components of mindfulness, Gestalt therapy, Emotion-Focused therapy, Choice therapy, Ego-state therapy, Cognitive therapy, Parts therapy, Dream Rehearsal therapy and others.


TRTP™ makes use of deep imagination to deal with trauma where it is stored - in the body and in the subconscious. 


TRTP™ is in alignment with the two requirements stated by noted trauma experts (Levine, Van Der Kolk) that for trauma to be resolved:

  1. The person must (somehow) be moved to an empowered position in regards to the trauma
  2. The body must (somehow) know that the event / events are over


Scientific research reveals that the wishes, desires and aspirations of our creative conscious minds only control cognitive behaviour 5% of the time. Our subconscious mind is in control 95% of the time, which is often why we find ourselves self-sabotaging our attempts at healing. (Bruce Lipton) 


TRTP™ addresses the negative unconscious core beliefs stored in the subconscious, which dictate our thought patterns, emotions and behaviours. This is done at the beginning of the process, to empower the client and avoid self-sabotage during the following therapy.


TRTP™ then takes the emotional charge from the past, which moves the client to a place of empowerment in relation to the trauma. 


As deep imagination is used, the therapist can then speak directly to the body and the unconscious (where the trauma is stored).


As the memory of the trauma is placed firmly in the past, the client is shifted from a fight/flight/freeze state into an empowered, self-regulated state.


The client moves from their state of fight/flight/freeze - “I’m not safe!” to “It’s over, I’m safe now.” The sympathetic nervous system is calmed and the symptoms decrease. 


TRTP™ does not merely address just the symptoms of the trauma but deals with the underlying cause of the problem, removing the emotional charge from the past and returning the client to a state of empowerment. 

TRTP™ is generally completed within 3 sessions. The sessions are spaced a week apart each, I generally allow 2 hours for each appointment. Please ensure you book the appointments on days where you have some free time afterwards, to allow the session to integrate. To maximise results, its also best to avoid making appointments on days where you have multiple commitments, or on days you find stressful. 

Session 1

Session 1 is aimed at addressing your negative unconscious core beliefs. You are taken through a gentle hypnosis which is recorded and sent to you.

After the first session you will need to listen to the recording every day for a week, this will ensure you are in an empowered position for the second session where we address your trauma. The recording is a personalised, powerful tool that can be used after we have finished our sessions together, it can be used to pull yourself out of a bad mood, rough days, or just days where you need to feel empowered!  

Session 2

Session 2 is aimed at addressing your trauma, starting from birth. Again, hypnosis is used to access the trauma where it is stored- in the subconscious and the body. 

Session 3

Session 3 is aimed at wrapping up the work we have done so far and also features a short hypnosis session where we create your ideal future.
