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.

‘This process is Revolutionary’ – according to academics and professionals in the trauma arena.
