Doug’s Psychotherapy practice is focused on supporting movement to healing and choice through increasing awareness. This allows the natural movement to health to emerge from tapping into the client’s own internal wisdom. He has a diverse range of clients encompassing corporate executives, fellow therapists, couples and individuals. The powerful, long term effectiveness of his therapy is such that almost all of his work is a result of referrals from satisfied clients.
Recognising the profound and often debilitating impact of trauma on many of his clients and the tendency for this to impede their ability to respond to their own impulses toward health, Doug trained in TRTP and has seen dramatic positive impacts on clients as a result of using this ground-breaking intervention.

I am the founder of Safe Haven Hypnotix and I am here to help YOU…
My unique, no-nonsense yet compassionate approach will support you every step of the way as I assist you with your individual situation. I use the wonderful TRTP process to complete all three sessions along with my wealth of knowledge and life-experience.
Clients share that they feel ‘stuck & trapped’ inside their distress. They ‘feel it’ on many levels as ‘it’ appears to take over, often consuming every aspect of their lives. Many clients explain that they have never shared the way in which they truly feel with family, friends and work mates. I hear time and time again that many people have secretly lived a life full of internal anguish and misery, often over prolonged periods of time…. For most, they state that they feel isolated and misunderstood as they sit in silence or jump from one health professional to another to no avail. For many clients, much of their pain eases or stops altogether after they experience 3 – 4 sessions of TRTP.
A little about Sally:
I have a vast background in nursing, both in Victoria and in Queensland, Australia. I have worked in general hospitals, long term rehabilitation centers, geriatric nursing homes and units for adults and children with both physical and mental disabilities. I also have extensive experience working in Allied Health Departments ranging from long term Burns Units, Amputee Clinics through to Head Injury Units and Psychiatric Wards.
Since 2005, I have combined various techniques and studied different modalities ranging from Neuro Linguistic Programming, EFT, Reiki, Time-Line Therapy™ through to Clinical Hypnosis and of course my background in nursing and Allied Health. All of this training and experience has been extremely beneficial, however, when using The Richards Trauma Process TM, I often witness a depth of healing and positive change that seems to appear right before my eyes. At the end of the third session and often well beforehand, clients explain that they ‘feel’ a sense of Calmness, Clarity and Safety knowing that this is the start of living more productive lives.
Take Action Now:
Contact me via my email address; email@example.com or send me a text on
0410-000-880 and I will get back to you ASAP. Please allow up to 24 hours for me to respond to your message due to world-wide time zones. It costs nothing to have a chat.
If this feels right for you, you can start healing with TRTP in a relaxed rain forest Safe Haven or via video conferencing facilities such as Skype or Zoom from anywhere around our planet. And finally, by the end of the third session clients often tell me as they smile:
‘I now feel SAFE knowing that ‘it’s’ all finally over.’
There are 2 important requirements; You must be able to speak and understand good English and if you are using video conferencing it is important to have a reliable internet connection.
Note: Confidentiality is assured at ALL times when resolving issues with Safe Haven Hypnotix.
Feel free to check out our TRTP Face Book Page and read a letter I wrote of how I met and nursed Judith Richards, the creator of TRTP, when she was indeed very sick. It explains, in depth, how shocked I was to witness, first hand, her remarkable journey of self-healing. Over a very short period of time I observed Judith’s remarkable full recovery, hence the reason I became a TRTP Specialist.

Psychologist / Psychotherapist
Clinton is an accredited psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency and a fully registered member of the Australian Psychological Society. He has worked as a psychologist for over 20 years in several different settings, including Relationships Australia, Rehabilitation and Education. For the past 14-years he has worked as the Principal Psychologist in Private Practices in the Knox and Rowville areas.
Prior to this, Clinton trained and worked as a Naturopath for 13 years. This enables him to have a more holistic approach when dealing with mental health issues. His focus in counselling is to develop a collaborative relationship with clients to encourage them to become actively involved in implementing change in their lives, and to assist them to become more emotionally resilient.
Clients have remarked that Clinton brings a unique energy, enthusiasm and humour into each session. This, together with his ability to establish rapport, provides clients with a supported, safe and nurturing counselling environment.
Having worked for years in CBT and Mindfulness, Clinton became concerned about the rate of progress clients were achieving using these modalities. This led him to investigate the TRTP process. It has revolutionised his practice as it has enabled clients, committed to change, to achieve effective outcomes a whole lot quicker, and to break free from the debilitating impact of their symptoms and/or their past.
The most common conditions treated include:
- Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Phobias and OCD
- Depression and Bipolar disorder
- Relationship and communication problems
- Substance abuse
- Gambling and other on-line addictions
- Sleep Disorders and Stress Management

Like many, I grew up in a ‘normal’ family that was actually quite dysfunctional; and I was particularly affected by the trauma of previous generations, especially my mother’s childhood experiences. I absorbed beliefs and experiences that left me distressed, frightened, ashamed and confused; isolated, abandoned and misunderstood. I had little self esteem, boundaries or sense of myself; I continued to be very vulnerable to abuse and felt responsible for everything and everyone.
By the time I was in my early twenties I’d experienced a frightening assault, sexual and verbal abuse, expulsion from school and community, teen pregnancy, an abusive marriage and a divorce. Ongoing I still struggled with self esteem and relationships, flashbacks, depression and anxiety; and of course my own children were affected too. There was no recognition of PTSD and this trauma cycle and very little help available.
Perhaps that experience sounds familiar to you?
Studying counselling, social and community work, personal development, coaching and finally, TRTP allowed me to understand, and to interrupt these destructive patterns, reclaim my life and begin to experience Post Traumatic Growth. I was able to heal important relationships, set boundaries and stand up for myself. I learnt to say NO to blame and shame, and YES to what I wanted.
I can help you do this too.

Family Systems and Relationships – Birth and Generational Trauma
I am very attuned to the effects of family and relationship trauma and abuse; especially hidden generational and birth trauma. Using TRTP and counselling skills I can help you understand and see things in context, let go of blame and gain a sense of calm so you can confront the situation in a safe, empowered way. This frees you to begin living your life in the present and experience relief, happiness, and a sense of hope and joy.
My journey as a therapist began after qualifying as a registered nurse over 23 years ago. Over this journey I have supported people to manage their chronic health conditions. However, it became apparent to me that to truly help people make long term changes I needed to help them address their psychological needs as well as the physical.
Society often views people as being weak if they are struggling with issues such as addictions, weight issues and mental health conditions, which often results in them feeling punished, judged and scorned. I realised that these issues often occur because of distressing life events and past trauma. I undertook a counselling diploma because I wanted to be able to understand better and make a difference.
However, it is clinical hypnotherapy and TRTP that has transformed my practice. This amazing approach is also transforming lives of the people who come to see me for this therapy because it enables them to utilise their own inner strength to make changes to their life quickly and effectively.
Are you feeling anxious, depressed, over-whelmed? Do you have health problems such as chronic pain, lethargy, fibromyalgia, gut issues, over-weight or just feel burnt out?
Did you know that past difficult life events can cause havoc with your health?
Sexual abuse, childhood neglect, bullying, being in an accident, being diagnosed with a medical condition or undergoing cancer treatment can have devastating effects on your physical and mental wellbeing. These life experiences can result in problems such as feelings of panic, low self-esteem, behavioural or personality changes. Many behaviours are an unconscious way of coping, such as addictions, rage, avoidance of social situations.
TRTP can safely turn these symptoms of unresolved trauma and lead you to release the emotions that are trapped within your body and unconscious mind, safely and peacefully.
I’m passionate about offering a safe, nurturing confidential environment and love watching people bloom and leave my office with a huge smile on their face.
When you are ready to live a full life free from self-doubt, depression, anxiety, PTSD, physical and emotional pain contact me so you can live the life you deserve. Please take your time to have a look at my website with lots more information at http://moveoncounselling.com.au/

If trauma, self-sabotage, low self-esteem, lack of self- control and putting everyone else’s needs before your own are holding you back from being happy, feeling in control and achieving your dream figure then my expert training can re-program your mind and free you from your internal struggles.
I am passionate about helping people to use their mind to heal themselves and especially to help those trapped in long term stress and PTSD to return to a calm life where they can rewrite their future free from the past. I know you can return to calm from extreme trauma and PTSD because I have experienced this in my own life. I went back to my medical roots and combined this with my deep understanding of how cells (including all the cells in our bodies) behave and learned NLP and Hypnotherapy to enable me to help clients use their minds to heal themselves.

Helping you to be free from harmful effects of stressful events through TRTP.
In 2010 I gained my Masters in Counselling after 35 years working in a range of hospital and community settings as a social worker and counsellor.
This enabled me to consolidate my experience and develop further in areas of high complexity and need. Neuroscience and TRTP are exciting new areas that have contributed to the understanding of anxiety and trauma and offer better outcomes for people.
Areas of expertise include Anxiety and Trauma, Loss and Grief, Parenting and Family relationships
Over the last 30 years Karen has worked with survivors of trauma in different roles. Initially, as a result of her plays and short stories about women, children and trauma, she was invited to speak at schools and deliver workshops on resilience to community groups. This culminated in an invitation to create a journal writing course for sole parents who were struggling with the effects of physical and sexual abuse. Gradually this developed into a small practice working individually with people who had experienced all kinds of trauma. Karen enhanced this work by incorporating movement and vocal techniques from her theatre practice to access trauma trapped in the body. As a result of this work she began a PhD in Trauma Studies and Theatre.
The latest trauma research reveals that trauma is stored in the body, not the event so therapies that rely on a conscious approach, such as talk therapy, can help us gain perspective on our experience but they can’t clear the felt sense of burden that lives in the body. While our conscious minds can try and steer us away from situations and people we know are harmful only trauma therapies that target trauma where it’s stored in the body can clear the heaviness and felt sense of burden that lives in the body.
Karen has researched therapies that really work and set aside her PhD in order to train in the new therapies. First she studied EFT and Havening, then chose to qualify as a TRTP therapist because it is the single most effective and rapid trauma treatment available. It works in the most inventive and subtle ways to access and release trauma from the body and achieves in 3 or 4 sessions more than other therapies can achieve in many, many sessions. TRTP not only clears the current burden of pain and distress but entirely removes the patterns of traumatic shock that keep us hooked into behaviours, experiences and people that hurt us. After TRTP we just stop gravitating to them. It does all of this gently without retraumatising, leaving us truly free.
If you would like to know more or to make a booking for TRTP, please contact Karen. She works in person in Northcote and Nth Fitzroy, Victoria and via the internet on Zoom.

Hi I’m Virginia… TRTP Practitioner
In my work as a midwife, I’ve encountered new mothers who went into parenting brimming with hope and excitement. They had read the baby books and websites. The nursery was decorated, the pram was bought … the name was picked … and then, everything came crashing down during the birth…
From that moment, for these women, the gloss was off. This was not what they imagined they’d signed up for… Sometimes it’s more serious than birth just ‘not going to plan’ …
And yes, birth trauma is very real for many women.
A third of women describe their baby’s birth as ‘traumatic’ and one in seven mothers develop post-natal depression. For six percent of Australian women the situation is even more serious. They meet the diagnostic criteria for Acute Stress Disorder or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Even more alarming, the leading cause of maternal deaths in Australia is …. Suicide.
When birth doesn’t go to plan, sometimes it’s not as easy as just ‘getting over it’. Sometimes you find yourself still talking about it and thinking about it — obsessing over it, perhaps — for weeks, months or even years afterwards. You know it isn’t healthy, either for you or for your child. Sometimes this trauma even stands in the way of having other children. It certainly stands in the way of experiencing life fully and feeling ‘whole’.
Symptoms of birth trauma, as with any psychological trauma may include:
- Panic attacks
- Recurring nightmares
- Intrusive thoughts
- Intense sadness
- A desire to self-harm
I watched women reach out for conventional counseling and psychological help, and there were times when those approaches just didn’t cut it. Months would pass, with little or no improvement. Women don’t have months to lose searching for a solution.
Working as a practitioner of The Richards Trauma Process has been life-changing for the clients I help, and for me. To see rapid, lasting improvement in a mother’s emotional state, in as little as three sessions, is extraordinarily rewarding.
I now work with women from all walks of life, from all stages of life, with all sorts of psychological issues that are causing them to feel stuck, miserable, women self sabotaging, women experiencing anxiety, depression, self-harm, insomnia, low self esteem, grief and loss, PTSD and they too are having the groundbreaking shifts with The Richards Trauma Process ( TRTP).
When you know things can’t go on as they are TRTP may be the solution for you too like it has been for my clients. Are you ready? Are you worth it?
I welcome any questions you may have or discuss how TRTP may be the fresh start to healing and health you’re looking for. Sessions can be face to face or via Skype.

I have many years experience in Private Practice, Child Protection and Community Health. I have been in my current Private Practice for over 8 years and have established a respectful reputation in the Macedon Ranges area.
Over the years working with clients suffering anxiety and/or depression, I identified a link between these symptoms and the client’s experience of trauma or dreadful experiences. This led me to search for a methodology that successfully brought about change without the possibility of retraumatising my clients.
Following extensive research, I encountered The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP), a groundbreaking therapy that resolves extreme traumas and trauma related issues as mentioned above. Since using this process, I have had amazing results with my clients who are leading fulfilling lives.
TRTP Certified Practitioner, Bachelor of Education (Psychology), Diploma of Hypnotherapy, Graduate Certificate Career Development, Certificate of Counselling
My experience is rich and varied and has given me the skills to work with individuals, families and groups to help them achieve their health, wellbeing and educational goals. Since becoming TRTP certified my practice has been transformed. This process has made it possible for me to provide my clients with a gentle yet profoundly effective means of healing from trauma.
Having qualified as a TRTP practitioner in 2016 I now use these skills on a daily basis to create wonderful outcomes for my clients. The robust and adaptable nature of the Richards Trauma Process makes it an effective way to treat a range of issues, and my clients report feeling energised, mentally clearer, lighter and stronger in a remarkably short space of time. In fact, usually from the first session.
My particular interests are in treating trauma, panic disorder, anxiety and depression. It is remarkable how these conditions can impact on so many aspects of our lives so treatment may also include dealing with addiction, or with relationship issues, or even with obesity.
Each individual client comes to me with a unique set of life experiences so I draw on my diverse skill set to apply a holistic approach. I have been a practising hypnotherapist for 8 years and bring many years as a Careers Counsellor, and 19 years as a Psychology teacher, to my work.

Wendy Gadsby is a hypnotherapist, based in the western suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria. She runs her own business, Make Changes. Wendy says “The name was chosen because that’s exactly what I help people to do”.
Wendy has owned her own businesses before and also has business background mostly in the areas of finance and management. Wendy’s roles working for others were mostly based on result based outcomes, making improvements, and also helping others to achieve their goals – and so, Wendy says “it was easy for me to make the transition into helping people with NLP & hypnotherapy”.
As a busy mum of two teenagers, and while working way too many hours in a stressful deadline based career, Wendy says she knew there had to be something out there for her that felt more worthwhile, and that could give her a better work-life balance.
Wendy has been interested, and dabbled in using different alternative therapies and natural medicines for well over 20 years.
After a few years of her own personal journey of self-development through learning about meditation and metaphysics, by chance Wendy came across hypnosis. It struck her straight away as something she wanted to do.
Wendy established her own business and started practicing hypnotherapy part time. Eventually she chose to move away from the corporate world altogether and follow her passion full time, of doing something that supported others, and that she felt also made a very real, positive and lasting difference.
Wendy is certified and recognised as an NLP Master Practitioner and a Specialist Hypnotherapist by Quantum Change Seminars and a Practitioner of Hypnotherapy with Australian Success Academy, and is also an Associate Member of the International Institute for Complimentary Therapists.
My specialist areas started off as helping people to Quit Cigarettes and Reach their Ideal Weight, but I found more and more people were coming to me for Anxiety and Depression. With the Richards Trauma Process I am now able to help them in an even more efficient and life changing way.
It’s such a nice thing to watch the change between when a client walks in the door anxious, or smelling of smoke (or both), to walking out not only confident of their success but excited about the future, just a relatively short time later!
I grew up, like most people, in a dysfunction family. I left school at 15, married at 16 and by 20 had three children. I was repeating my parent’s life. I knew I had to change but fear kept me trapped. The belief “I wasn’t good enough”, “I wasn’t smart enough” “who did I think I was” keep me locked into a life I hated.
These “thoughts” needed to change for me to change and I was lucky to find a mentor to help and guide me.
Overcoming my “unconscious beliefs” allowed me to go back to school, build 2 successful businesses, and travel the world.
Now I dedicate my life to assisting people to “Get Their Life Back” using Hypnotherapy, coaching and counselling techniques. Unconscious Fear, Anxiety, Stress, Depression, PTSD, grief, pain and addictions such as smoking, emotional eating, drinking, gambling rob you of the lifestyle you deserve. Hypnosis is the fastest way to change the Unconscious Core Beliefs and resolve the past emotional events that are holding you prisoner and I have 8 years training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist to help you do it.

Born in Harare, Zimbabwe I started my working life as an Agronomist (Crop Scientist). For the first 4 years after Uni, my work life consisted of alternating “work with farmers” with “monthly 2 week army call ups”. I was a medic. Our country was involved in a terrorist war. My “normal” work vehicle was an armoured jeep, I carried my medic kit and rifle everywhere. Because it was normal, I did not understand the cause of why I was “always angry”, why “sudden sounds” made me drop to the ground or simply “freeze” or why I was always “on alert”… just watching.
I had classic PTSD and never knew it. It took 30 years to figure it out and a lot of personal development to sort it. Through my journey I discovered the power of hypnosis, and then The Richards Trauma Process. TRTP changed my life and that is why I now dedicate my life helping people overcome PTSD, anxiety, stress and depression in all areas of their life. I also assist with training new practitioners to ensure more people have access to this amazing process.

Hi! I’m Penny, a TRTP Trauma Therapist based in Brisbane that specialises in working with busy, stressed professionals.
I don’t know about you but I reached a point mid-way through my life where I wondered, “Oh God, is this how my life is going to turn out?”.
Despite my beautiful family and successful career creating a fashion label in Melbourne with 50 staff, my life had been full of let downs, betrayals and painful memories that seemed difficult to shake. I suffered with crippling anxiety, fear, depression and burnout. Despite the shiny exterior, my inner world was filled with turmoil as I tried to be superwoman, and I now understand that turmoil was caused by early-life traumas.
What happened next is a big story including losing my business, home, first marriage and developing chronic fatigue, which you can read about on my website but I’ll tell you it became a slow, expensive and arduous road to wellbeing and happiness.
My life is VERY different now. I feel relaxed, healthy, empowered and excited about my life. And I am SO passionate about helping others to find their own version of happiness an EASIER, QUICKER and MORE AFFORDABLE WAY! That’s why when I came across the incredible The Richards Trauma Process, a MASSIVE light bulb came on. It really can change lives by resolving trauma and trauma-related symptoms in as little as three sessions or THREE WEEKS gently and effectively.
I’ve found that trauma comes in many disguises. It can be as obvious as the shock of a car accident, exposure to war, rape, abuse, the sudden death of a loved one, being bullied or neglected. But it can be something less obvious too.
Many of us are very good at hiding our issues and trying to maintain a normal life while being riddled with anxiety, stress, depression, panic attacks, phobias or just fear. But so many people do not realise this stems from trauma.
Many of you will recognise these feelings and think that it’s just because of your fast-paced life when in fact those symptoms can be deep rooted to something in your past that you may or may not even be aware of.
We often hold onto anger, rage, humiliation, profound sadness, shyness or perhaps a lack of self-worth without realising the damage it’s doing to our lives on a daily basis.
I am so drawn to this new therapeutic process because I know it changes lives and brings relief quickly, effectively and peacefully. It’s so rewarding for me to see clients leave my office after their third session with a huge smile on their face that arrives naturally, feeling excited about what their new world holds for them.
I encourage you to have a look at the powerful testimonials I’ve received from some of my past clients at http://www.peacepassionpower.com and warmly welcome the opportunity for us to discuss how TRTP can help you.

Having practiced psychology in excess of 20 years in Government agencies, private hospital settings and now in my own private practice, I have never before felt so excited about the future for my patients. Trained in the traditional therapeutic interventions such as CBT, Mindfulness and Existentialism, I became increasingly frustrated that many of my patients struggled with sustaining the change they wanted for themselves in order to lead successful, happy and enriched lives.
Being trained in and experiencing my own personal transformation due to TRTP, I have found that TRTP has absolutely revolutionised my practice. It has enabled my patients to achieve their outcomes so quickly with no retraumatisation. In my years of clinical practice, never before have I found a process so powerful, so safe and so empowering. Do yourself a lifetime of favours by finding a practitioner that suits and start your deep healing. You will finally be able to choose to live the life YOU want to live. I feel very lucky to be able to help others achieve what TRTP has helped me achieve!

Before becoming a counsellor, I worked almost exclusively in the field of education at all levels: from pre-school to University and adult education, public and private, both in Australia and overseas. In 1993, I published a book on Academic Writing for overseas University Students in Australian Universities.
Since 1993, I have worked as a relationship counsellor with Relationships Australia, as a school counsellor and in the private sector as a psychologist. Within my work as a school counsellor, I encountered issues such as sexual and physical abuse, stress, grief and self-esteem problems. I was instrumental in presenting the students with a number of strategies for developing: personal safety, problem-solving skills, relaxation skills, communication skills, and self-esteem.
Further, with the Rural Doctors’ Network, I was responsible for the initiative which saw the placement, in 1996, of three psychologists in Charleville, Roma and Goondiwindi to service schools and medical centres across South-West Queensland. In my private practice, I also specialise in counselling: men after separation; anxiety; loss; grief; relationship problems; survivors of sexual abuse; boundary setting for parents; family therapy; child and adolescent problems; post-traumatic stress; depression; men’s issues; under-achievement; workplace harassment; starting over, and personal and work-related stress.
An issue which has arisen more and more is direction in young people’s lives – sometimes involving identity and sometimes “what am I going to be when I grow up,” (a common question for children for adults up to fifty years of age). In recent years, about sixty percent of my practice has been TRTP.

Issues I deal with daily
Suicidal ideation; Sexual Abuse; Work Stress; Workplace Harassment.
My practice commenced with anyone who came through the door. Over twenty-three years, while I still see anyone referred to me by doctors, the practice itself seems to have come down to a few undeniable facts:
(1) People who seek help mostly have a set of unconscious core beliefs that sabotage their best intentions and plans;
(2) With the exception of major trauma , for the most part, those beliefs were set up before the age of seven and reinforced by later experiences;
(3) The earlier and the worse the experiences that set up those unconscious core beliefs, the more damaging and long-term the problem is;
(4) It can all be healed.

I love the work I do. I consider it a privilege to be trusted by a person to share their successes and difficulties, work together to access their personal skills, explore new approaches to dealing with old problems, take values-based committed action, and expand and blossom to fully connect with the person they really are. Every day I am reminded of the beauty and ability of the human spirit to expand and grow.
My clients are treated with care, respect and warmth. I work exclusively with individuals across the adult lifespan. I love to work with men and women who have reached that stage in their life when they are ready to confront change, break the chains that have held them back, and embrace all that is good in them and around them. To really live life.
In the course of my psychology practice, I regularly deal with underlying anxiety, depression and stress (regardless of any formal diagnosis). These symptoms all too often relate to experiences of the past from very early life through to this moment (from minor distressing events to severe trauma). Since becoming a certified TRTP Practitioner I have a powerful, effective, safe, and relatively speedy way to take the emotional charge from these past events, to put the past in the past, and for the body to finally know “It’s over … I’m safe”.
Now the scene is set for great things to happen.

From an early age I have developed a deep and ongoing interest in the human condition and the intimate relationship between perception and objects. This passion continued to develop in my initial professional careers, first as a potter and artist and then published writer and workshop facilitator. As mentioned for the past twenty years I have practiced as a therapist, counsellor and taught and supervised students in the field of mental health. I loved my earlier work and I am passionate about the work I do now.
My love of learning and inquiry led to a doctoral thesis in philosophy where my understanding of the approaches to psychotherapy and counselling began to develop. What resonated strongly were the concepts of wholeness of being and self-realization on all levels; the view that everything in the world as we know it is interconnected. This sense of being connected to the natural world has been present for me since the day when, as a small child, I discovered clay (no surprise then that, some years later, my first career was as a potter).
After completing a doctorate I trained as a psychoanalyst. The field of psychoanalysis that especially appealed is attachment and early childhood development and the profound influences that those formative experiences have on the relationships, and the mental and physical health, of adults. From my clinical training I learned to work with patients’ emotional responses and bodily experiences, particularly in relation to depression, anxiety and trauma resolution.
Although I trained as a psychoanalyst, I continued to acquire and develop a broad range of treatment skills with a particular emphasis on helping people who have experienced trauma and post-traumatic stress. Through my teaching, counselling and psychotherapy positions I have formed a deep understanding of the emotional turmoil and distressing physical symptoms people are faced with on a daily basis when dealing with the aftermath of trauma and traumatic events, including long periods of stress.
Most recently I was accredited as a practitioner of The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP). As part of the training I experienced TRTP as a client. That experience was life changing and deeply moving. The changes I noticed within myself were simply astounding. A particular experience that troubled me for many years disappeared overnight, and other positive changes became evident soon after. My earlier years of therapy (200 hrs) had never touched on the feelings and emotions of the troubling childhood experience. During this time, my unconscious mind had kept the memories below my awareness. Through hypnosis, and the sense of safety that is created by the therapist, these old memories simply fell away, and the subsequent relief was wonderful.
The best indicators I have of the effectiveness of TRTP are the results achieved for my clients. TRTP, which is delivered with love, has liberated so many of them from their past traumas and upsets, and any other dreadfulness that has occurred in their lives. Most clients achieve rapid change and resolution of extremely distressing symptoms in a relatively short space of time. It is a privilege to witness the remarkable transformation of my clients and to share with them the knowledge that they have a future to look forward to that is meaningful and satisfying.
In guiding my clients to come to know themselves honestly, and to rise above adversity and anguish, I draw upon all of my experiences and trainings, including my wide knowledge of art and life. In conjunction with other highly effective psychological methods TRTP now forms a key component of my therapeutic practice
Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging.

Hi! I’m Rosie. If you are looking at this page you are ready to make changes in your life. Positive and powerful changes that will free you from your inability to enjoy life. Usually people don’t seek counselling or therapy unless they are in crisis. They seek help to relieve their inner turmoil, anxiety or depression, or to escape unbearable images that play on their minds. They might want relief from their feelings of shame or guilt, or from feelings of being stuck or trapped, along with a wide range of distressing physical symptoms that are currently affecting their health. People also seek help because they are grieving and feeling lonely or they can’t find a loving relationship. Others feel emotionally numb or feel like they are falling apart and lacking any sense of purpose or direction in their lives. If you are suffering and need support at the moment I can help you.
Many years ago as a result of the debilitating effects of anxiety and depression, as well as coping with irritable bowel syndrome I sort relief from a therapist. The healing (and sometimes challenging) journey of therapy was one of the most profound experiences I had ever embarked upon. As a consequence, I came to understand and know myself in ways I had never thought possible. As I developed a growing awareness of what was the underlying cause of my troubling symptoms I slowly began to experience a sense of aliveness and inner freedom. This exposure to my inner world of emotions and feelings, as well deepening a connection to my body and mind, eventually lead to my own training as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and counsellor. I have now been working in the field of mental health for 20 years. During this time I have developed a keen interest in understanding and treating traumatic stress. [see more of this story in the biographical details below]
I discovered The Judith Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) by chance. An invitation via email from a colleague arrived advertising a workshop with the title ‘Trauma! Understand it. Resolve it’. With a desire to know more about resolving trauma I attended. Over the course of several hours I listened to Judith speak about the devastating effects of trauma on the mind, brain and body. And then she spoke about her alternative SAFE, GENTLE and EFFECTIVE approach to healing traumatic stress. I was transfixed and deeply moved. Judith is an inspirational and passionate speaker, a skilful storyteller and educator. As she demonstrated via video testimonials, and with people from the audience aspects of her unique pathway to resolving trauma, I realised she had found the golden key. Through her own personal and often painstaking research she had created a blend of conventional trauma techniques but with the addition of hypnosis. It was a Hallelujah moment. I was excited and wanted to learn more. In contrast to regular conventional therapies than can take months, even years before there is relief from traumatic stress, TRTP can transform a person’s life in 3 – 4 sessions. This is a remarkable achievement. Since I began working with clients using TRTP, people who I had been seeing regularly in my clinic for years recovered and are now living satisfying, interesting, loving and healthy lives. How marvellous is that!!
My name is Warwick. I’m a Clinical Psychologist who has been in the business of helping people heal mentally and emotionally since 2003. I have worked with clients of walks of life and of all ages, from young children all the way to clients in their 80’s. I have built a strong reputation in my local area of Coffs Harbour, to the point where word of mouth keeps the work streaming in and there is a general confidence in what I do.
As nice as it is to have a good reputation in my chosen field, what means the most to me is being a facilitator of growth and remarkable change in the lives of those I work with. The feedback I’ve received over my career suggests that many of my clients have experienced significant improvements in their psychological, emotional, and behavioural functioning as a result of the interventions I have offered. But I also realise that the methods I have used in the past have also left quite a number of clients simply accepting and ‘putting up with’ ongoing issues of anxiety, depression, trauma, and self-worth, despite my best efforts. I had come to accept also that there wasn’t anything else that could be done for these clients, and that some improvement in coping capacity was probably as good as things could get for some people. All of that changed when I was trained in TRTP…
With TRTP as my top of the line treatment approach there is now a genuine feeling every time that my clients can walk away after participating, experiencing extraordinary transformations. The attitude is no longer one of teaching my clients to simply cope and accept their symptoms and limitations. I now tell people they can clear their blocks to thriving as human being by targeting the blocks where they reside – the subconscious mind.
Providing you have an open-mind, can use your imagination, and really want the change, it is very much possible to achieve amazing results if you choose me for TRTP. And you do not need to live near Coffs Harbour because I offer this process using internet-based video consultation and it still works just as well as face-to-face consultation.
Put simply, TRTP has changed me personally and professionally in such a profound way. Now I just want to bring this powerful process to as many people as I can. So if you are ready to leave behind all that holds you back and to move towards extraordinary, please contact me.
I have a specialized interest in anxiety presentations at both clinical and sub-clinical levels. I am highly experienced and skilled in dealing with: PTSD, depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, autism spectrum disorders, OCD, self-worth issues, attachment issues, family/relationship issues, parenting, drug and alcohol issues, and personality disorders.
In addition to my Clinical Psychology status, I am also a qualified Sports Psychologist, and therefore skilled in consultation to athletes and clients seeking peak performance in their chosen field.
Hello, my name is Helen. I am a TRTP Practitioner.
Moving forward is the key to nearly all solutions in life and there is no exception when it comes to your own health physically and mentally. Just as we need to learn new skills and update our existing knowledge to live and work independently, I believe that we need to update our knowledge about ourselves and develop new skills to live a full and productive life.
I have skills, knowledge, certifications and qualifications that, individually or in tandem with one another, give my clients the knowledge and skills they need right now to move forward.
Since becoming a Body Stress Release (BSR) Practitioner I have worked with many clients and the majority of these are experiencing pain in some part of their body. Over time I became increasingly aware of just how much our minds, most especially our emotions, influence recurring pain in our bodies. Repeated experiences with clients fueled my curiosity and my desire to answer the question “What past life experiences, events or traumas contributed to getting this pain, these allergies, ongoing anxiety, poor sleeping patterns or illness responses so obvious in our bodies?”
My search led me to an introduction to TRTP. The process rang true to me and both my professional and personal curiosity was aroused. The TRTP process identifies the trauma (stressing events) that hide behind our individual beliefs, words and behaviors. I know that TRTP is very impactful and I am very passionate about sharing this process with others to impact change in their own lives.
My goal is to use my life experiences and my skills to help others to move forward and to free them from the emotional hold from both obvious and hidden ‘Traumas’ (stressing events) they have in their lives, to feel empowered, calmer and confident to really live their lives.
The Richards Trauma Process-TRTP – is a cutting-edge therapy which delivers fast results for problems such as Anxiety, Depression, Aggression, Anger, Guilt, Grief, Frustration, Shyness, Abuse, Pain, Parenting, Sleep, Stress, Chronic Stress, Mood Swings, Fears, Phobias, Tension and Panic Attacks. All these issues are supported in our minds by our negative unconscious core beliefs which were developed when we were younger.
Fueled by our lack of self-worth, we hold on to negative emotions like anger, rage, humiliation or profound sadness often without realizing the damage it’s doing to our lives each and every day. You are being abused by your own mind, running the same old programs, patterns and stories, constantly telling yourself “I’m not good enough”. Over time feeling this way just becomes a part of who we think we are. It becomes normal.
TRTP, can potentially change your life forever, shifting these negative emotions while providing you with insight into your new normal and a positive direction for your future.
If you can use your Imagination and you’re ready for a big shift and have an open mind, then you are an ideal candidate for the TRTP experience and I’m here boots and all ready to help you to help yourself.
My sessions are easily accessible either in person or via Skype or Zoom.
Contact Helen to book a 20min free skype call to meet and chat.

Profession: Psychologist and Executive Coach
Hi, thanks for choosing to read about me.
The first thing you might like to know is that ‘I know what I’m doing’ – and supporting people like you is what I find most fulfilling.
I am a registered psychologist, and a member of the Australian Psychological Society (MAPS)
After a corporate career in Banking and Human Resources over 15 years, I turned back to psychology.
Since 2000, I have consulted independently to multi-nationals and small business across Asia Pacific, especially China. Since 2010, I have invested more and more into my primary values and capabilities – how to make best use of my skills, to make the world a better place.
I have had my fair share of successes in sport and business, and have also had to face up to failures. All of this requires opening myself up (practising what I preach), accepting slowing down, re-framing my personal and family history, and taking responsibility for my own story. I have learnt to re-tell it so that its useful to me now – and you can to.
I have invested in the fields of anxiety and depression with Beyond Blue, and mostly recently with The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP). The changes people can make following TRTP, for human fulfilment, are nothing short of staggering. Feel confident to find out more about this.
In this regard, I’m here for you. Whatever we do will be safe, and will be all about learning, and creating the future you hope for.
I can assist you with anxiety, depression, suicidality, quitting from addictions, relationship stress and grief.
In parallel I support elite sports people, consult to global companies about their leadership and negotiation via workshops, consulting on special projects and executive coaching.
I’m an everyday person, making a difference. I offer both commercial and psychological insight, to help you take those steps forward, that you want to make.
After studying Psychology at university for six years and personally exhausting the western medical system to help with my own dis-ease, I began to see that for me, personally, the progress to mental and physical good health was only short term.
I then went on to study hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy which still left me with a feeling that my training was somehow not yet complete.
After hearing about TRTP and the profound results this process was having on individuals, I decided this was the skill set that I needed, to complete my repertoire of training. In life, so many people appear to be suffering unnecessarily and this doesn’t need to be the case. There is therapy available that has overwhelmingly successful long term results.
TRTP helps individuals to alleviate trauma related symptoms, and help establish a life beyond trauma. My goal is to help you become the best that you can be by rediscovering the real you, the person you were, before trauma and distressing events got in the way.
The Real Me Hypnotherapy offers a safe, confidential and judgement free environment. TRTP is unique to each person and is not a one size fits all process.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile.
Are you tired of feeling scared, angry, overwhelmed or maybe even numb to it all? Is your body manifesting unexplained chronic physical symptoms? Perhaps you are feeling completely immobilised by the stress of daily life or past trauma?
If any of these resonate with you, then take a moment to pause, rest a while…take a breathe and read on …. I think I know what can help!
Having worked as a Clinical Psychologist for more than 20 years, I have trained in a number of modalities and enjoyed supporting clients to overcome adversity. I’ve always felt, however, there was something missing. For many, the journey could be long or there seemed to be residual issues lingering from the past that continued to sabotage best made efforts to find contentment and fulfilment in life. Thanks to The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP), I’ve found the missing link.
My passion for TRTP comes from consistently bearing witness to the transformations clients now make through this dynamic and powerful process and it’s so so quick! In as little as three to four sessions, I can support you through the TRTP process, enabling you to change the sabotaging thought patterns that underpin unwanted behaviours. We don’t need to venture back into the detail of the past, which will keep you feeling safe and empowered. When we truly believe we are enough, then we can be free from psychological stress and illness once and for all.
“You are enough! Not because you did or said or bought of thought or became or created something special….but because you always were.”
Helen is a caring and empathic Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapist who empowers clients to become active participants in the creation of their own rich & meaningful life; free from emotional and even physical pain. She has established her own successful private practice where a high percentage of her clients are direct referrals from other clients and for that she is grateful.
Helen works with individuals, couples and families whose lives have been impacted through psychological related stress and illness. She assists clients with PTSD, stress, anxiety, depression, phobias, panic attacks, chronic somatic illness, eating disorders, disordered eating and relationship difficulties.

My name is Matthew Nettleton,
I am the founder and primary therapist of ‘Reframe Therapies’. I work out of the amazing Community Health Initiative Centre at 9 Langwells Parade Northcote, Melbourne, have a practice from my home in Bendigo, and I also offer sessions via Zoom/Skype.
I started Reframe Therapies out of my own experience with Trauma, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Addiction, Anxiety issues and Depression and completely overcoming them using the techniques we offer at Reframe. I am a qualified addiction and trauma specialist, with lived experience. And now my aim is to help others gain the same freedom I have experienced using The Richards Trauma Process.
My qualifications are:
- The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP)
- Holistic Drug and Alcohol Counselling
- Meridian Tapping
- Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
- Life and Recovery Coaching
- Meditation Teaching
As well as having studied all of these modalities, my lived experience allows me to relate to a client on a personal level. I create a safe, non-judgemental space for healing to take place. My understanding is in my experience. I understand the grip of being stuck in trauma, anxiety, depression and addiction. And I understand the process that needs to take place in order to gain total freedom from these issues.
I have a history of addiction to ice, and heroin and prescription medication. I suffered severe trauma throughout my life, resulting in panic attack disorders, physical issues, depression, suicidal ideation. You name it I have been through it. I am pleased to say that now I am well! My trauma, my addictions are a thing of the past. And I now assist others through the same processes I myself went through.
My specialties are in addiction, trauma, depression and anxiety. I have an interest in helping those who suffer trauma during, prior to and after active addiction, are now in recovery and are seeking to grow and overcome emotional blocks. My clients who I have taken through The Richards Trauma Process have experienced the same amazing results that I, too, experienced.
After traumatic events, abusive relationships, times of addiction, we are then left with the aftermath which can take years to overcome in therapy normally, if ever. My primary aim is to speed this up! Generally in just 3 sessions with TRTP! I assist the client, guiding them through the elegant yet simple step by step process that is TRTP. We leave the past where it belongs, giving the client the freedom to move forward and get on with life with them sitting in the drivers seat!
Areas of Interest
Trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, fears & phobias.
Louise is a 100% ‘people person’ with a strong interest in physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
After running her own successful business for many years as a qualified Remedial Massage Therapist, Louise saw first-hand how much of her clients’ pains were physical manifestations of previous life trauma.
As part of her ongoing professional development, Louise embarked on a quest to help ease the turmoil in her clients’ lives – studying a range of therapies including commencing training as a registered nurse.
When Louise realised that nursing was not going to provide the answers she required, she became interested in The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP).
After experiencing her own difficult family upbringing, including living with a substance-abusing parent, and being in a relationship where her partner’s traumatic childhood was impacting negatively upon their lives, Louise saw that many of the ‘standard’ therapy practices had little to no effect on real behavioural change – especially over short periods.
Louise was amazed how TRTP rapidly changed her partner’s behaviour for the better, after just three sessions. She knew she had to find out more.
Louise undertook the intensive TRTP training program and today is a qualified TRTP Practitioner. And is now using TRTP to help her clients break free of their unresolved emotional hurt and belief systems, and live lives of peace and contentment that they never thought were possible.

No-one has to live a life controlled by overwhelming fear, anger, sadness and confusion. These negative emotions can create many mental and physical illnesses. We all deserve inner peace and contentment – to live a life free from the trauma and negativity from the past. Everyone deserves a life filled with joy and happiness. It’s our birthright.
Let me take you by the hand and gently walk you through to the other side. It’s like stepping out of a dark tunnel and into the light at the other end. You may feel that you could never do this alone – and you don’t have to. Together we can release all that you no longer need to hold on to – to create a wonderful new future.
My aim is to help you access and live from your inner strength. Sense of Self and Moments of Insight are my special research interests.

I graduated from RMIT as a Mental Health Social Worker in 1995 and have been in private practice for 17 years as a Counselor and psychotherapist.
My purpose became clear when I began my own self development journey in 1990. I became a seeker of the most effective techniques for healing and change to enable effective transformation for my clients.

Issues I deal with:
Anxiety and depression. Low self- esteem. Abuse/bullying. Weight/food/body Image. Money & Success. Perfectionism/high achieving pressure. Feeling stuck/overwhelmed. Addictions. Fears and unwanted limiting beliefs.
It is my life purpose to facilitate core transformation in the lives of those who want to free themselves from patterns of suffering, realize their full potential and live their dream life. You have all the answers, I simply guide you to finding them. Whatever your issue, it is a culmination of your life experience and past events, and with new understandings of epigenetics, trauma can also be passed down generationally.
As your sabotaging core beliefs are changed and trauma is cleared a new future can naturally evolve and you can begin to thrive.

As a registered Psychologist with over 25 years’ experience, Stella Phillips is regularly exposed to clients, friends and colleagues, who in spite of years of searching, are unable to make sense of their relentless internal struggle with anxiety, depression, fear and sense of isolation. What she sees more and more are treatments focused on symptom alleviation that do not sufficiently address the underlying and pervasive trauma that continues to impact people’s lives, often years after the event or experience. Trauma has a far-reaching and significant impact on mental health and quality of life and is often undiagnosed and subsequently undertreated, particularly in women.
Stella’s practice focuses exclusively on women across the adult lifespan, in helping them recover their psychological, emotional, spiritual and physical health. She has worked with women presenting with a diverse range of issues, including anxiety, depression, anger, PTSD, trauma, abuse, self-esteem, grief and loss, family and relationship breakdown, pain and illness management.
Her focus is on helping women understand the source of their distress and on how to overcome the emotional pain of past distressing or traumatic events that impact their present lives. Events such as: adverse childhood experiences (including bullying; emotional or physical neglect; verbal humiliation; growing up with a family member with mental/physical illness or addiction; parental abandonment, divorce, or loss); witnessing or experiencing all forms of violence; accidents or serious illness; complicated birthing; medical procedures; and more.
Stella’s clinical approach to therapy is one of compassion, sensitivity and enthusiasm while instilling hope in her clients that things can improve. She uses The Richards Trauma Process, along with other psychotherapeutic approaches to help her clients overcome their fears and reach their true potential, in a safe and respectful environment.
Stella has a genuine interest and passion in providing quality clinical services to assist women when they are feeling their most vulnerable and she would welcome the opportunity to work with you. Please see her website for further information.

I initially trained as a Sick Children’s Nurse and then completed my Training in General Nursing in the eighties.
I subsequently was responsible for my own children and learnt the complexities of being a parent; and the challenge of maintaining a constructive relationship with my husband, which was part of the complex equation of family life.
I then trained as a Soul Centred Psychotherapist and Counsellor which included many different modalities such as Gestalt, Meridian work, Tapping, Art, Meditation, Journalling etc
The underlying belief for me to respectfully work with the goal of each client; through mind, body and the unique essence (spirit), that is each extraordinary human being.
How I like to work is with warmth, wholehearted care, and respect, gently coming to understand each person’s goal and desired outcome.
Keeping communication and honest straight dialogue so that we are working together not to fix but to move through and past; to a place of understanding, insight and inner strength.
A great joy for me is to see a client leave my practice with more confidence ease and optimism in their life.

I am a psychotherapist and counselor registered with the Psychotherapy and Counseling Foundation of Australia with more than 20 years clinical experience. During that time I have worked in a number of organisations devoted to the care of people affected by mental health disorders, addiction, trauma and adverse childhood experiences and had the opportunity to contrast treatment modalities. I have found The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) to be a safe and highly effective therapeutic modality. It is elegant and powerful, resolving the impact of distressing past events and resulting Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety and depressive disorders and addictions without re-traumatising. TRTP resolves debilitating symptoms quickly, effectively and safely in three to four sessions.
TRTP helps resolve intrusive symptoms of PTSD, the core of abuses held from early life trauma, the fall out of chaotic attachment – symptoms that have kept individuals stuck in pain and in dysfunctional patterns of feeling, thinking and behaviour. TRTP gets to the core of the pain and releases it, safely, allowing freedom from the triggers of the past. It is possible to successfully move away from the vicious cycle of abusive relationships, alcohol and other drug abuse and patterns of thought and reactions that can lead to debilitating auto immune disease and phobias, part of the ongoing cycle of surviving with inner turmoil.
In TRTP hypnosis is used in each session because in hypnosis we can talk directly to the unconscious where negative underlying core beliefs, the response to abuses and trauma, are held. In hypnosis we can talk to the body where past trauma is stored. TRTP relieves the overwhelming nature of past distress and can help you to change these unconscious core beliefs driving and sabotaging your conscious efforts to make change. TRTP regularly produces fabulous results. Just imagine your longed for positive changes coming quickly and safely into action to create the future you have longed for so that you can move from merely surviving to thriving.
My private practice is in the inner city area of Melbourne but I also conduct online sessions for clients who live too far to travel to Melbourne.

TRTP turned around my way of understanding effective therapeutic intervention for trauma.
I have been practising as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor for more than 20 years with extensive experience as a counsellor and body-oriented somatic therapist in private and public practice.
As a certified TRTP Practitioner of ‘The Richards Trauma Process’ since 2015, I am now seeing more positive changes for my clients in the shortest time ever. The Richards Trauma Process TM (TRTP) provides a very powerful way of addressing all trauma or stress related issues. They can be resolved quickly, effectively and very safely, in generally 3 sessions. A truly amazing and gentle intervention, created with in-depth knowledge, care, and thoroughness.
I am so grateful to be able to offer this approach and feel passionate about assisting people to achieve positive life changes and gain lasting relief from lifelong pain and trauma.
This process is not re-traumatising and completely confidential.

My purpose is to help my clients move from pain and suffering towards health and well-being. My passion is witnessing the amazing transformations that occur when clients reclaim their lives.
As a TRTP Practitioner combined with my training and experience as a qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist I strive to ensure you feel safe, comfortable and supported in your process. I have the academic training to help you make sense of your personal history, the capacity to support you during the process and the ability to guide you gently through the therapy process, all the while respectfully helping you navigate towards your own healing and health.
A few words about me: I arrived at this work later in life as it wasn’t until I experienced my own struggles in my late 30’s that I truly understood the profound change that can occur through the work of personal development and psychotherapy.
That difficult period in my life proved to be the catalyst for change and motivated me to return to study retraining as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist. Since that time my passion in this field has continued to grow. Initially I worked in the not-for-profit sector with a range of community organisations where my training and experience was consolidated.
In 2011 I moved into private practice to focus on my area of interests being trauma, attachment disorders, anger and relationships. From there I naturally found myself specialising in Men’s Health where I worked extensively with men on Anger Issues and Early Childhood Trauma. From this point I furthered my training in trauma through completing The Richards Trauma Process.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts/ Social Sciences from Monash University, a Vocational Graduate Certificate in Bereavement Counselling & Intervention from the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement and, a Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy & Counselling from The Cairnmillar Institute.
I would describe my style as natural and integrative. It is my intention to create a safe and affirming place where the work is enriching and empowering. I work across the whole spectrum of life events and utilise the client’s life experience, hidden knowledge of self, and innate capacity for growth all underpinned by The Richards Trauma Process as the main vehicle to facilitate change.

Despite my training in Clinical Psychology and ongoing professional development, I was disappointed that I was not getting the results that I wanted for my clients. Then, finally I found what I was seeking. I came across Judith Richards and her process, The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP).
This process changed me profoundly both personally and professionally, and since my training I have witnessed transformative changes for my clients. In as few as three sessions, you can leave behind the pain of past traumas, stressors, anxiety, depression and move forward into a calm and empowered state of being. It is an honour to help clients with TRTP, and I am not only passionate about my work again but feel more energised after a day’s “work”.
Areas of Interest
Depression, anxiety, stress, pain management and trauma.
From very early on in my life I knew that I wanted to help people and so I was guided into nursing. I was drawn to working in highly stressful areas (ICU & CCU) where I worked for many years until I could no longer manage my inner distress. I did not realise then that during my childhood, my parent’s severe PTSD had had a profound effect on me, on top of which I experienced numerous significant traumatic events. As some of you have also experienced, I reached a state of burnout and left a profession I loved.
Alongside nursing I searched for complementary therapeutic approaches and self-help tools which led me to study acupuncture, CST (cranio-sacral therapy), various massage techniques, Bowen therapy, EFT and other psycho-somatic modalities. During Dr. David Berceli’s first TRE workshop in Australia, I experienced the body’s true self-regulating and healing ability which occurs via an automatic tremoring mechanism. I fully embraced TRE (tension, trauma and stress releasing exercises) and qualified as a TRE CT- certification trainer.
I subsequently met Judith Richards, the founder of TRTP (The Richards Trauma Process) and completed my TRTP practitioner training. I now primarily use TRTP in my private practice while continuing to offer clients private TRE sessions and continue working as TRE CT.
TRTP is usually completed in three sessions during which you will be guided through a powerful and unique process that is respectful, non-judgmental and imaginative. The shift in your neurology will be noticeable and experienced on all levels of your being- physical, emotional, psychological and in your everyday interactions. By becoming free from negative, unconscious beliefs and no longer experiencing disempowerment related to traumatic events, there will be no barriers for you to create and experience the future you have always desired.
Many clients find great relief in not needing to provide or discuss details of their distressing events or periods of severe stress in order to achieve profound freedom through TRTP.
My experience in assisting many clients to deal with somato-emotional pain together with my own experience of healing from PTSD enables me to offer you a safe, supportive and insightful space in which you can enter your own process of moving away from the hurtful elements of your past and towards the future of your choice.
TRTP sessions are conducted in person or more frequently via Skype or Zoom online conferencing programs, which make TRTP sessions available across the globe.
I provide sessions in English or Slovenian.
Areas of Interest:
– Anxiety, panic attacks, depression, PTSD-post traumatic stress disorder
– Females (rape, incest, pregnancy/birth trauma, domestic abuse,

purpose, without regrets or being triggered by past or present
dysfunctional relationships, there is hope.
If your ‘golden years’ need a bit of a polish, I can assist you with
I work with clients who are willing to temporarily suspend their previous beliefs about therapeutic processes and immerse themselves into being guided during their TRTP sessions. Once you step through the TRTP process, you will know why this is important and of maximum benefit.
- Please note that this approach differs significantly from traditional ‘talk’ therapies.
- Confidentiality is assured and always taken seriously.
- Please get in touch to organise time for a short, free talk to determine if TRTP would be suitable for you.
Looking forward to speaking with you and to us working together.

Profession: Credentialed Mental Health Nurse, Clinical Hypnotherapist
Issues that I deal with:
Over the 10 years that I have owned my practice, I have been seeking a therapeutic approach which reliably and effectively frees people from past trauma. The demand is huge, and only limited solutions are currently available to meet this demand; most current therapy practices only achieve slow, incremental change. These current practices typically involve re-exposing clients to memories of the traumatic experience, effectively re-traumatising them.
Last year I found The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP™). I am extremely pleased with the results I’ve seen in clients whose lives were previously dominated by hopelessness and negativity. Due to the many years I have worked in the mental health field, I specialise in working with people who have diagnosed mental illnesses, including anxiety, depression, panic disorder, eating disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I have also worked with people who have been diagnosed with personality disorder and schizophrenia.
Many clients who have had outstanding results have been seeing psychologists and other therapists for years, in an attempt to overcome their past. It is a real pleasure to be able to help these people, many of whom have been “put in the too-hard basket”.
Several client testimonials can be seen on my website.
As clients contact at a time of crisis and distress, Gay’s emphasis is heartfelt understanding of the client’s inner experience and situation as the foundation for assisting.
During 30 years of practicing as a psychologist it has been Gay’s focus to keep abreast of developments to offer clients the most effective process, outcomes and change in their situation as possible. Gay is finding taking clients through TRTP process (3 to 4 sessions) is inspiring.

Heather Wilks can be a bit radical about healing. Metaphysical discoveries kept creaping up on her. She had worked in advertising as a copywriter for over 30 years. In that corporate world she hadn’t really thought much about healing. That changed when her father died suddenly just after turning 70. She began asking questions. She was shocked by the lack of answers. In spite of all the promises, there wasn’t – and still isn’t – a magic pill.
But there are other ways of healing that really do work.
She kept bumping into opportunities to train in progressive alternatives. For over 20 years Heather has been drawn to teachers with very different ways of thinking. Those who challenge the status quo. They’ve brought dramatic changes to her own life. Now she works to help others transform. To give up the things that aren’t working and reach for more out of life. Better health. Better opportunities. Better relationships. More money. More fun. Lots more fun.
Heather believes that the body was designed to heal itself. It just needs the right circumstances. She creates those by helping people release what they don’t want so that there’s space to embrace what they do want. Working with mind-body connections to bring things back into balance is more magical than a pill. And changes last.
Heather draws on a variety of healing methods, including TRTP Hypnotherapy, FasterEFT-style tapping, NLP, Advanced Pendulum Dowsing, Australian Bush Flower Essences, Reiki Sekh’m and other Metaphysical approaches. Her company is called Oh! Naturale Pty. Ltd. Confidential consultations are available in person or via Skype. See more details on Natural Therapy Pages

Carole’s passion is to help people take responsibility for themselves with selected interventions and support as appropriate. Her initial training was as a Physiotherapist and she has worked extensively for 35 years with the employers and insurance companies on employee workers’ compensation return to work programs and injury management. Carole identified a huge need for quick and effective trauma counselling to deal with the effects of workplace and motor vehicle accidents, depression and anxiety. Therefore, her main focus is now as a trauma practitioner using the TRTP approach to get outstanding outcomes.
Carole’s major interest is to work with clients to effectively deal with the effects of traumatic work or car accidents, where adjustment back into productive and satisfying life has been difficult due to chronic pain or PTSD. Carole is also keen to work with those who have eating disorders, having had personal experience of this condition in the past. Anyone who is ready to do what it takes to deal with the destructive effects of chronic stress and trauma is welcome.

I have spent the last 4 years researching, studying and working with clients relentlessly to find FAST, SAFE, EFFECTIVE therapy. As a result, here you find TRTP. TRTP helped transform my life after 17 years of being the victim of my own depression, anxiety, trauma and multiple addictions. It is through my own healing that I stand here now wanting to share the experience of what being ‘Well’ actually feels like.
Have you ever wondered what lies behind your eyes? Why you think the way you do? Why you feel the way do? Yet there doesn’t seem to be a way out…. Or maybe it sounds too good to be true?
Through my studies of hypnosis, psychology, personality theories and more I aim to share this experience of change from within.
Since learning TRTP, I Have become dedicated to sharing this therapy and experience with as many people as I can, so they can experience the TRUE life they want to live.
Issues I deal with (specialty or interest): Stress, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Addiction, Self Esteem, Anger & Rage, Self Esteem, Personality Disorders, Smoking Cessation
