Biographical Info

Belinda has over 17 years experience working with survivors of family and domestic violence and sexual assault. She has worked directly with women, adolescents and children in refuges escaping violence, crisis services, outreach services, as a counselor and case manager. All of this experience and insight informs her understanding of the unique impacts of family and domestic violence, and what some clients have described as ‘like living in a war zone, terrorized in your own home’.  In particular, she is aware of how the actions of a perpetrator of domestic violence deliberately erode a ‘sense of self’, personal confidence, individual power and autonomy in their victim.

After many years of working in crisis services and training in different therapeutic approaches, Belinda has carefully selected TRTP as the trauma modality she uses.  This is because she has found TRTP to be the most empowering, effective and quickest way of assisting people to move beyond surviving – to the freedom of thriving. All without having to relive it or retell it.

Belinda is deeply passionate about how TRTP has relovolutionised how women can rebuild who they are, without having to undertake years of painful and often, retraumatising therapy. Recovering from living in fear and being controlled can happen sooner than you think.

While TRTP resolves the trauma from the past, it also builds a road map for the future. No more abusive and controlling relationships, as Judith’s powerful process works at the deepest level to eradicate the patterns of the past. It truly gives you back your power. For a survivor of trauma, this literally changes your life.

Belinda has experience in working with the LGBTQI community, and understands the additional levels of complexity that may impact on LGBTQI clients. She has also supported clients in same-sex abusive relationships. She offers a safe, supportive environment for all, and works with a non-binary gender framework.

In addition to her Private Practice as a TRTP Trauma Practitioner, Belinda also trains and supervises other professionals in working with Family violence and Sexual Assault, at the Domestic Violence Resource Service Victoria.

She sees clients in her rooms in Fitzroy and also online.  Call today or email for more information and a brief chat about how she can assist you to reclaim your life.

Biographical Info

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
  • PTSD
  • Depression and Bipolar disorder
  • Relationship and communication problems
  • Substance abuse
  • Gambling and other on-line addictions
  • Sleep Disorders and Stress Management

Biographical Info

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.

Biographical Info

Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, Clinical Family Therapist


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.

Biographical Info

After 20 plus years working as an intuitive energy healer and guided visual meditation teacher, alongside her “day job” as a freelance journalist, Bronwyn discovered TRTP through her own healing journey. Three difficult pregnancies and births (and resulting post-natal depression), caring for her partner who suffered with chronic PTSD and 3 young children (all on the Autism Spectrum and one a T1 Diabetic), and a lifetime of dealing with her own issues of anxiety, depression, and chronic illness, including Fibromyalgia and CFS, saw her on the brink of a physical and mental breakdown in 2016. After walking out of her first TRTP session pain free and feeling energised for the first time in her adult life, Bronwyn knew she had to train in this incredible modality to become a Practitioner. From her home office in country Victoria, Bronwyn works predominantly with women, using her own story to inspire and demonstrate that it’s entirely possible to change their narrative from one of pain, grief, guilt and shame to self acceptance, love, joy, abundance and empowerment.


Bronwyn’s area of interest is in empowering women who’ve been suffering with anxiety, depression, stress, PTSD, chronic illness and pain, and extreme self worth and confidence issues for most of their life. Bronwyn is particularly passionate about helping women overcome traumatic, painful and distressing birth experiences, and looking at alternative ways to better support and guide women through this most critical time.

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. This varied experience means I am able to take a broader approach to assist my clients achieve a state of mental and physical wellbeing that enhances their personal and professional success.

Biographical Info

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!

Specialty and areas of interest:

Duncan is passionate about giving people the tools to be freed from their past, and continues to advance his skills to help people overcome trauma.

He has found that while it is true that you cannot change the past, you can stop the impact the past continues to have on you.  By using The Richards Trauma Process, Duncan enables people to stop the negative impact of the past in a safe, time effective manner, without having to relive the trauma.

Duncan is passionate about ensuring people have access to quality counselling, therapy and self-empowerment in a healthy and effective manner.

Having worked with a lady aged in her 40s for 18 months who had been drinking alcohol since the age of 14, been through numerous rehabs and struggled in relationships, Duncan did The Richards Trauma Process with her and saw life-changing results. She has now been 13 months alcohol free for the first time since she was 14. Helping her to understand that the alcohol was a way of covering the pain from previous abuse, once the abuse was dealt with her need for alcohol was no longer there.

People use lots of different substances or activities in an attempt to deal with their pain. By showing people how to healthily deal with the past, they are given the tools to stop the negative impact this continues to have on them. Let me help you find freedom and release from your past.

And that’s it.  Thank you!

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.

Helen’s practice is based on the core belief ‘get the mind right and the body will follow’.

In addition to TRTP, Helen is also experienced in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Gottman Marital Therapy.

Helen’s qualifications include a Professional Doctorate in Psychology (Clinical Child & Adolescent Specialisation) from The University of Melbourne.  She is professionally registered with the Psychologists Registration Board of Victoria (PRB) and is a full member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). Helen is also registered with Medicare as a Clinical Psychologist, enabling her clients to claim Medicare benefits in addition to private health care rebates where applicable.

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
  • Hypnotherapy
  • 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!

Biographical Info

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.

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.

Biographical Info

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.

Assisting prospective parents in removing the influence
of familial and generational trauma which can negatively impact on
their future parenting. If you have ever told yourself, “I’ll never be like
mum or dad,” let TRTP help you to become the parent that you wished
you had.

Working with individuals (age 50yrs and older) who wish to feel more
peaceful, joyful and free from fears related to their future and getting
older. If you wish that you could enter your later years of life with
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.

Biographical Info

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

Biographical Info

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

Biographical Info

I have extensive experience working with both Deaf and Hearing children, adolescents, couples and families. This experience encompasses working with children, adolescents and adults who present with ADHD, ASD, learning difficulties, cognitive impairments, various syndromes and other disabilities. I also work with clients who suffer from PTSD, Depression, Anxiety and Personality Disorders.


TRTP has transformed my whole approach to working with my clientele. My approach is to look at the unconscious core beliefs and explore what is driving the behaviours rather than only focusing on behaviour management. TRTP has enhanced the speed in which I get positive outcomes and results.


After having first -hand experience with mental health facilities over the last 20 years and experiencing the inadequacies of our Mental Health System, TRTP has provided me with a cutting edge, fast, safe and effective tool which doesn’t retraumatise the client.


TRTP can truly change people’s lives from feelings of anxiety, depression and being disempowered to being motivated and in control of their lives – in 3 sessions!


Specialty or Interest: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Trauma, PTSD, Family Therapy, ADHD, ASD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Children & Adolescent, Hearing Impairment.
