The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) 

What is TRTP?

TRTP is an elegantly simple, yet comprehensive, step-by-step process which resolves the lingering effects of distressing life events/experiences (that you may or may not be aware of) through to extreme trauma.  TRTP resolves trauma-related symptoms such as anxiety, depression, fears and phobias, PTSD, shame, and grief. It achieves results quickly, effectively and safely – generally in three sessions.


TRTP is a truly eclectic therapy, borrowing ideas from a range of therapies and forming them into something far more powerful than any of them are alone.  It is a dynamic, rich, and sequenced series of steps, which, if separated would not be anywhere near as powerful. It is unique, yet allows space for the individual client’s needs to be met.

TRTP makes use of the imagination to deal with trauma where it is stored – in the subconscious and in the body.  TRTP deals with the underlying, unconscious core beliefs which keep a person stuck in self-sabotaging thoughts, emotions, and behavioural patterns.  Clients are shifted from fight/flight/freeze and moved to an empowered, self-regulated state.  The nervous system is calmed.  The memory of the trauma is placed firmly in the past and the emotional charge is removed.  The client quickly moves from their state of ‘I’m not safe!’ to ‘It’s over, I’m safe now’.  Calm returns, on all levels and symptoms reduce.

TRTP is a gentle process that does not require clients to talk about their traumatic or distressing events. TRTP resolves trauma related issues without re-traumatising the client.


TRTP is a three-stage process which consists of three x two-hour appointments, a week apart. We book four appointments to allow for a possible extra appointment. The appointments are either online (it is very successful online) or in person in Hervey Bay. If clients would prefer a retreat option – we offer boutique accommodation at Villa Cavour as an optional extra.


TRTP is practitioner directed, with clients being led to engage the journey in a safe and supported environment.  Those clients who turn up whole-hearted in the process see exceptional results.

 TRTP also empowers clients to have the tools and strategies for dealing with any future distressing situations.

Nourish Mind Soul Body is delighted to offer clients the quick, highly effective, and safe process of TRTP.  It is truly life changing.  We offer TRTP either online or face-to- face, with either Dean or Tania Comerford.

The Retreat Option at Villa Cavour  - 

TRTP is also available as a retreat option, which includes 14 nights of accommodation at beautiful Villa Cavour in Hervey Bay, Queensland.  Villa Cavour is the Home of Nourish and where we have our counselling space.  The retreat comes at the discounted price of $1,200 (normally $1,560) for accommodation, plus the cost of TRTP.  Each room is a large room with a King or Queen bed and your own private ensuite.  Villa Cavour has a pool, relaxing outdoor areas and is a short walk to the blue water of Hervey Bay.  A continental breakfast is included and there is a full kitchen for your convenience , or you can take advantage of a wide range of local cafes and restaurants.


The first TRTP session is planned for the day of your arrival, followed by a week of relaxing, refreshing, and listening to a daily audio from the first session. The second TRTP session is a week after the first, followed by the third TRTP session on the day of your departure.  If 14 nights does not suit your schedule or budget, we have several options that reduce the time needed.  Please ask us about these.


Before deciding to go through TRTP with Tania, I did my research – and saw many reviews saying TRTP was “life-changing”, “amazing”, “wonderful”.  I was cautious though, thinking it sounded just a little too good to be true.  But still, I figured it was worth trying.

Just one session later – honestly, just one – and an issue that has plagued me for my entire adult life was rendered powerless (or, in TRTP-speak, I was now in control, instead of being controlled by negative thoughts and experiences from my younger days).  I’ve completed the 3 sessions and feel absolutely free and amazing.  Also, I could happily listen to Tania talking me through TRTP for hours.

So, if you are stuck in a rut – if you’re just existing instead of living, if you’ve settled, if your inner voice is your worst critic – do consider TRTP.

If you have any questions, please contact us. 

You are welcome to book in your initial appointment to answer any questions you may have.

The price for the initial appointment is $132. When you decide to go ahead with TRTP, this is then deducted from the TRTP package.
