The Richards Trauma Process

The Richards Trauma Process

What is the Richards Trauma Process™ ?

The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) is a revolutionary process developed in Australia for resolving trauma. Clients in countries around the world are achieving significant results and improvements in just a handful of sessions.  TRTP is a dynamic, rich and sequenced series of steps, which, if separated, would not be anywhere near as powerful.  It is unique. It allows space for the individual client’s needs to be met. TRTP is the ideal solution for people who are suffering from trauma, anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and a variety of other issues, as it offers real, safe, effective results, without re-traumatizing the individual.

How does the Richards Trauma Process™ work?

When overwhelming events happen to us, the body isn’t able to process them. The ‘trauma’ gets stuck in the body, and the unconscious mind. TRTP™ deals with past events in two ways. Firstly, physically by releasing the emotional charge from the past that gets stuck at the time of the distressing event. There is then a shift from the fight/flight/freeze state to an empowered self-regulated state.

And secondly, psychologically by installing a feeling of safety (“I’m safe”) into the body and mind.

This combination is proven to be extremely effective at resolving past issues, which then enables the person to focus on the future.

TRTP™ uses dynamic re-imagination as a mechanism to speak directly to the body and the unconscious and resolve the trauma. And it’s the client’s imagination that becomes the powerful tool for change during the process.

Because the body and the unconscious mind don’t know the difference between what’s real or imagined, when we imagine different outcomes to old events, we are most open to suggestion. Which means that things are processed, and change occurs at a deep, enduring level.

The TRTP™ Process

In order to resolve trauma, two requirements are necessary:

  1. The person must be moved to an empowered position in relation to the trauma; and
  2. The body/the unconscious mind needs to know that the event/events are over.

This is what underpins TRTP™.

TRTP™ initially deals with the underlying, negative unconscious core beliefs which keep a person stuck in patterns of negative thought, emotion, and behaviour. TRTP™ then takes out the emotional charge from past events, without re-traumatising the client, and is instead moved to a place of empowerment in relation to the trauma.

TRTP™ doesn’t simply deal with the symptoms of trauma or distressing events, it addresses the underlying cause of the problem, removes the emotional charge from the past, and returns the body and mind to a state of calm.
