About TRTP

TRTP

TRTP™ is an elegantly simple, yet comprehensive, step-by-step process which resolves extreme trauma and trauma-related issues – anxiety, depression, fears and phobias. It achieves results quickly, effectively and safely – generally in 3 sessions.

It is a truly eclectic therapy. It is a very structured, yet dynamic process. It includes components of Gestalt, Mindfulness, Ego-state Therapy, Choice Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Parts Therapy, Emotion-focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dream Rehearsal Therapy and others.

It is a dynamic, rich and sequenced series of steps, which, if separated would not be anywhere near as powerful. It is unique. It allows space for the individual client’s needs to be met.

TRTP™ makes use of deep imagination. Deep imagination is used in order to deal with trauma where it is stored – in the subconscious and in the body (Levine, van der Kolk, Rothschild, Ogden).

TRTP™ is in alignment with the two requirements stated by van der Kolk, Levine and other trauma experts. For trauma to be resolved:

  1. The person must (somehow) be moved to an empowered position in regard to the trauma
  2. The body must (somehow) know that the event / events are over

TRTP™ initially deals with the underlying, unconscious core beliefs which keep a person stuck in patterns of thought, emotion and behaviour. In dealing with this at the beginning of the process, self-sabotage is avoided during the following therapy.

TRTP™ then takes the emotional charge from the past, moving the client to a place of empowerment in relation to the trauma. Because deep imagination is used, the therapist can then speak directly to the body and to the unconscious. The client is shifted from fight/flight/freeze and moved to an empowered, self-regulated state. The sympathetic nervous system is calmed. The memory of the trauma is placed firmly in the past.

The client quickly moves from their state of fight, flight, freeze – ‘I’m not safe!’ To, ‘It’s over. I’m safe now…’ Calm returns, on all levels. Symptoms cease.

TRTP™ does not merely address the symptoms of trauma. It deals with the underlying cause of the problem, removing the emotional charge from the past and returning the person to a state of empowerment, returning the sympathetic nervous system to calm.

About Me

tamara-graham

Hi, my name is Tamara Graham and I am an experienced practitioner having worked in behaviour support in the disability sector with a passion and flair for assisting people bring about positive change in their lives.

I am a qualified TRTP Practitioner and Social Worker; and this combined with my own lived experience and knowledge in behaviour support; I understand how anxiety and our environment impacts our wellbeing and our relationships.

I have experienced an array of therapeutic approaches in search of healing including Counselling, CBT, ACT, NLP, Mindfulness, Breathwork, Meditation, Past Life Regression Therapy, Trauma-Informed Self-Healing and Quantum Timeline Alchemy. I’ve developed a suitcase of coping strategies, but I did not find anything that resolved PTSD until I encountered and then became a TRTP practitioner.

TRTP is a beautifully elegant, safe and effective process which focuses upon turning off the negative unconscious core beliefs that lead to self-sabotaging behaviour. My experience with TRTP has been profound. I no longer need coping strategies – I am calm from within. This is exactly the same experience that my clients are having and that you could have too.

The mission of all TRTP practitioners is… Fewer hurt people in the world. More Healed people. All living their one precious life – free from pain and suffering.

If my story has resonated with you; or you wish to know more about TRTP and how it could help you, please make contact for a free 15-minute consultation to ensure we can work effectively together.

Testimonials

My whole life I have always felt on edge and like something was wrong, but I could never figure it out.

I was introduced to The Richards Trauma Process from a family member and after doing some research I was skeptical but wanted to try it!

Tamara was wonderful, she was very warm and friendly while taking a no nonsense approach that matched my personality well. The sessions I had were very personalized to me and had me re-thinking my world after the first one. I couldn’t believe the difference in my mood, I was calm, rational and found myself the one in control of emotions instead of spewing them at others.

The world has been a turbulent place (COVID) since I went through the process and I have remained calm and rational throughout, often with others leaning on me for support. Its so good to live life again without worrying about my emotions and stressing over things that won’t happen.

I was introduced to TRTP by Tamara Graham. I had never heard of TRTP before this. When Tamara shared the information with me, I knew immediately that it would be of benefit. I have spent many years working through the deep layers of my life experiences/traumas. I have also experienced a lot of anxiety which stemmed from my childhood; issues of abandonment, not being worthy, guilt, shame and blame (to name a few).

Having had experienced so much in my younger years, I journeyed into adulthood with more of the same and after discovering some deep, dark family secrets (kept from me for 30 years), I progressed from anxiety to depression. I visited the Counsellor on a regular basis for a year or so at this time.

My first child was born prematurely at 30 weeks via emergency C-section (one year after my life-changing news), his birth and our experience extremely traumatic. Having spent a total of 5 weeks living in the hospital, not knowing what our fate would be. It was a year later that I had a complete breakdown, diagnosed with PND and PTSD then medicated for a year or so to cope.

My second child born 3 years later saw me re-visit PND and PTSD and again I was medicated to cope. At this time my Nan, with whom I was very close (she helped raise me) was admitted to the same hospital with kidney trouble - later diagnosed as Cancer. It was a few days after the birth of my daughter that I was made aware and she died 2 months later.

Soon after my Pop (her husband) was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and I became his carer; with two small children in tow. 7 years on, he passed leaving an inheritance which ended with me being disowned by my family. This would be the final straw and my turning point. Any previous work I had done, although useful at the time didn’t seem to have any lasting effect. I found myself searching for another therapist or a way to cope with it all. I wasn’t healing, just patching up the hurt.

I found TRTP to be a deeply profound experience. As a meditation teacher, it really resonated with me. Tamara guided me gently into each session and I felt very safe, supported and empowered throughout. I loved the use of imagery/visualization to communicate with those who had hurt me in the past. I always felt in control of the situation and was comforted by knowing this. After each session, there was a transitional period; where I felt such deep healing take place, unlike any I have ever experienced before.

It felt really good to have such a great weight lifted from my shoulders (carried for far too long). I felt a real sense of freedom and forgiveness after my sessions. I would highly recommend TRTP to anyone who is struggling with their life experiences/traumas. Tamara’s approach is awesome. She is authentic – real and raw yet calming and nurturing. She has empowered me to move forward and as a result, I have done just that. I am forever grateful for this experience.

I was recommended to Tamara by a dear and trusted friend who felt that Tamara and TRTP could be of benefit to me. I had a few niggling issues I wanted to put to bed once and for all! According to my scores, I improved in leaps and bounds!! Within myself, I noticed many shifts and distinct improvements to my mood, stress levels, coping mechanisms, sleep quality and energy levels.

The sessions - for me - were so very easy! It was extremely relaxing, not intimidating in the slightest, and easy to follow in between sessions. Tamara skilfully planted ideas into my subconscious, so it really took no effort on my part to consolidate, other than positive affirmations, and listening to the recording from the first session - which I still listen to as the guided relaxation is absolute bliss!!

Tamara made me feel at ease right from the start of the process, she was very transparent with what the sessions would entail, she has a very confident, yet calming manner which is perfect for this line of work. And the treatment WORKS - and works fast!

I started this process very sceptical. I have done a lot of therapy and counselling for myself for many years. I already had a wall up to the process of healing trauma. Trying so many things and opening myself to another ‘therapy’ was quite daunting.

My 1st session was wonderfully eye-opening. I had been through some major changes in my life that had left me an anxious mess... to put it nicely. Tamara’s professional approach and commitment to my well-being was incredible. I felt so moved by the first session and in a few hours my persona had totally been redirected. I felt a release of all the troubles from recent and past events. My scepticism had been magically erased. An I do not say magic lightly.

I felt a true and deep awakening of the person I had lost in my stress. I felt free and passionate again about my life and goals. The next week bought nothing but goodness from the universe. I felt a shift in my attitude and I knew that this therapy was something very different to what I had previously experienced. The whole process has allowed me to regain control of my life, my emotions an most of all my traumas. I cannot recommend this process enough. It was simple, fast and every day I face my challenges with a strength I always knew was there.

Tamara's approach is warm and professional. I know this can help so many people free themselves from their own traumas.

When approached to take part in TRTP experience I was fearful to say the least, I’m not good at talking about personal experiences, problems or my emotions. After speaking to Tamara during my sessions I could feel a huge weight lifting that I didn’t realise I’d been carrying around for many years, with each session I believed I am a worthy and deserving human. I truly like the brutal honesty that came out of my sessions to relieve me of any stress or anxiety within.

I was scared to make a change to say the least, I guess we all like to be in our little bubble where we are safe but isn’t necessarily healthy for us, I truly believe the changes I have made are definitely for the better, I feel more calm, relaxed and look at my life in a different perspective that I never thought needed changing.

I would highly recommend TRTP if you want to make a difference in your life.
