The Richards Trauma Process, or TRTP, has been designed and created by Judith Richards. This process is the result of her own healing after surviving severe trauma, and her journey studying and understanding trauma.
TRTP is a step by step process, elegantly designed to resolve extreme trauma and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), as well as trauma related symptoms like depression, anxiety, stress, fears, obsessive behaviours, addiction, the list goes on. This process is not for everybody and certainly no miracle cure.
TRTP generally works in 3 sessions, effectively and safely – without re-traumatising the client.
TRTP stands uniquely on its own, but is in alignment with the processes used by other Trauma experts such as Levine, van der Kolk, Rothchild and Ogden.
For trauma to be resolved, two things need to happen:
- The person must be moved (in some way) to an empowered position with regard to their trauma.
- The body must know (in some way) that the event or events are over.
