Judith Richards

 Creator of The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP)

Judith is the creator of The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP).

This process steps people through trauma-related issues, such as anxiety, depression and PTSD. It is safe, effective and fast, generally in just 3 sessions.

TRTP was created out of Judith’s own need to resolve her own trauma. She found a way to resolve the extreme trauma  which had resulted in a major PTSD breakdown. She teaches this process to health professionals across Australia.

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.
