The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP)​

  • A structured hypnotherapy process to resolve the symptoms of PTSD
  • Safely resolves symptoms without revisiting the trauma
  • Adaptable to suit each individual client's needs and situation
  • Resolves anxiety, hyper-vigilence, anger, sleeplessness etc.
  • Fast and effective - 4 sessions are usually all that you need.

TRTP™ is a simple yet comprehensive, step-by-step process which resolves extreme trauma and trauma-related issues like anxiety, depression, fears and phobias. Results are achieved quickly - usually in 4 sessions - without any need to go back into the trauma. 

TRTP includes components of Gestalt, Mindfulness, Ego-state Therapy, Choice Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Parts Therapy, Emotion-focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dream Rehearsal Therapy and others.

It 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™ makes use of hypnosis.  Hypnosis is used in order to deal with trauma where it is stored – in the subconscious and in the body. (Levine, van der Kolk, Rothschild, Ogden). Central to this treatment is dealing with negative unconscious core beliefs
that keep a person stuck in patterns of thought, emotion and behaviour. In dealing with this at the beginning of the process, self-sabotage is avoided during the following therapy.

TRTP™ then takes the emotional charge from the past, moving the client to a place of empowerment in relation to the trauma. Because hypnosis is used, the therapist can then speak directly to the body and to the unconscious. The client is shifted from fight/flight/freeze and moved to an empowered, self-regulated state. The sympathetic nervous system is calmed. The memory of the trauma is placed firmly in the past.

The client quickly moves from their state of fight, flight, freeze – ‘I’m not safe!’  To, ‘It’s over.  I’m safe now…’  Calm returns, on all levels. Symptoms cease.

TRTP™ does not merely address the symptoms of trauma. It deals with the underlying cause of the problem, removing the emotional charge from the past and returning the person to a state of empowerment, returning the sympathetic nervous system to calm.


The hypnotic state is an altered state of consciousness that creates an environment within the brain that alters the way information is processed. It is widely used for many different conditions. 

It is safe, you are in control, and it makes it easier to change the way you respond to your internal and external environment.
In this state, targeted suggestions made by a trained hypnotherapist can generate changes in the perceptions, sensations, emotional responses, thoughts, behaviours and physiological responses of the client.

The client remains in control and aware of what is happening throughout.

What my clients say

There are no other words than truly amazing. A beautiful woman that can change people's lives with her services.
Demi T


 I first saw Trish for help with IBS. After her very helpful counselling I quickly realised that the IBS was a symptom of the extreme stress I was experiencing. So together we addressed that. Trish helped me deal with old hurts and dramatically reduced my anxiety levels so I could manage my stressors more effectively. I am now in a great place and feeling better than I have done in a long time.

Very effective hypnotherapy. Trish has a wealth of knowledge. I have trusted her completely to help me overcome my most personal obstacles and anxieties. Because her expertise covers career coaching and hypnotherapy, and counselling, she has been able to help me quit smoking, and move forward in my career, and grow my confidence. The cost pays itself off very quickly.
