  • Do you believe that you are not enough and your needs are unimportant?

You may then be interested to learn more about The Richards Trauma Process™, created by Judith Richards. This is available as trauma counselling in Melbourne. Aiming to cure severe trauma and trauma-related difficulties, such as anxiety, depression, fears, and phobias, quickly, efficiently, and safely, TRTP™ is a gracefully simple, but comprehensive, step-by-step process through trauma therapy in Melbourne.

The TRTP™ process enables you to easily change sabotaging thought patterns that underpin unwanted behaviours and is effective at addressing complex trauma therapy in Melbourne. There is no need to venture back into the detail of the past, keeping you feeling safe and empowered. Where needed, this process helps free clients to engage in mindfulness-based cognitive strategies more effectively once sabotaging unconscious limiting core beliefs are addressed.

TRTP™ is a unique and dynamic sequenced series of steps, which, if separated, would not be as powerful. TRTP™ incorporates dynamic reimagination, addressing the trauma where it is stored – in the subconscious and in the body. (Levine, van der Kolk, Rothschild, Ogden).

TRTP™ is in alignment with the two requirements stated by van der Kolk, Levine and other trauma experts. For trauma to be resolved;

  • The person must (somehow) be moved to an empowered position related to the trauma
  • The body must (somehow) know that the event/events are over/ it’s safe

TRTP™ initially resets underlying, unconscious core beliefs, which keep you stuck in patterns of thought, emotion and behaviour. By attending to these at the beginning of the process, self-sabotage is avoided in subsequent sessions. TRTP™ then takes the emotional charge from the past without revisiting/re-traumatising, thus moving you to a place of empowerment related to the trauma.

TRTP™ shifts you from fight/flight/freeze to an empowered, self-regulated state. Your sympathetic nervous system remains calm, and traumatic memories are placed firmly in the past. That is, you will move quickly from the fight, flight, freeze – ‘I’m not safe!’ To, ‘It’s over. I’m safe now…’ Calm returns on all levels and symptoms generally cease.

TRTP™ will address any symptoms as well as the underlying cause of the trauma, safely removing the emotional charge from your past and returning you to a state of empowerment and calm.


How Is TRTP™ Different To Traditional Ways Of Resolving Trauma?


TRTP™ is a highly effective blend of multiple psychotherapies and embraces many schools of thought.

TRTP™ “ is a truly eclectic therapy. It is a very structured, yet dynamic process. It includes components of Gestalt, Mindfulness, Ego-state Therapy, Choice Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Parts Therapy, Emotion-focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dream Rehearsal Therapy and others” (Judith Richards). Where traditional treatment like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help you manage the symptoms, and prescribed medication reduces or dulls the symptoms, in most cases, TRTP™ resolves the symptoms so that you can live a life free of trauma.
