Richards Trauma Process Reviews

It is almost impossible to put into words the changes that have happened

“I came to see Sue for drinking alcohol. After speaking with Sue about the reasons for my drinking I also decided to work with Sue to address my lifelong depression  anxiety and CPTSD (Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

I was resigned to depression being my cross to bear.  Something that I would always need to manage.  Every day was an exercise in putting one foot in front of the other to make it through the day. I felt that I had gone as far as I could with counselling and other trauma therapies. I thought I would need medication for life. A month or so prior to my appointment with Sue I was experiencing constant suicidal ideation. My children were so used to seeing me in tears that they didn’t even respond to it anymore. 

It is almost impossible to put into words the changes that have happened since seeing Sue. I feel lighter and excited for my life. I’m unapologetic about putting myself first. Those traumatic events seem so small and insignificant. I can honestly say I do not feel depressed or anxious at all.  I am weaning off of my antidepressants. People comment that I seem different, they say there is a change in my voice and I seem more upbeat. Life is just great. I’m currently in lockdown with 2 small children, I’m working full time, I’m sleep deprived… but I’m just handling it like it’s no big deal!

I did both in-person and telehealth sessions. I was surprised that the virtual session was just as effective as the in-person one. 

I was also surprised by what a nice experience it was.  It wasn’t traumatic, it was gentle and easy.”


You’re a miracle worker!!!

“I recently did a series of hypnotherapy sessions with Sue and Ive waited weeks to write my review because whilst I immediately noticed a positive result I was scared those effects would go away. Well Im happy to say I am still enjoying the positive results, I am no longer experiencing panic attacks in tough situations and I am approaching these situations with a feeling of calm and control. Im now able to think and take action from a positive headspace rather than reacting.
Thank you Sue for my new calmer self and my ability to now get a good nights sleep, you’re a miracle worker!!!”


I no longer have anxiety!!!

“I came to see Sue for help with aniexty, depression, chronic fatigue. I no longer have anxiety!!! My mood is elevated. Better self confidence. The thing that surprised me most about hypnotherapy was the Instant changes!”

Belle, Hamilton

I can’t recommend Sue enough!

“I completed my TRTP with Sue and I found it helped me tremendously. I can’t recommend Sue enough!”

Blair Adrienne

I’m free to be who I truly am

“I found Sue and the RTP approach simply amazing. After 20 years of being thrown around the mental health system this very simple process changed me. I was willing to do whatever it took to improve my life and took the chance with Sue . Words can’t express the change in me , I approach life without any more anger or guilt and I’m free to finally be who I truly am.

My gratitude for Sue will forever be and I cannot recommend the TRP process enough. I think Sue is ahead of her time using this process and hypnotherapy to unleash the power of the mind! Past present and future.”

Kel, Port Stephens

My mind is calm, I am content

“Treatment with Sue has become the main division in my life timeline. There was my life before and after, the positive change I have experienced has filtered out into all aspects of my life. My mind is calm, I am content and achieving things I could not have considered before. I look forward to every day now instead of fearing waking up and getting out of bed.”

Ron, Hamilton

A weight has been lifted

“Before seeing Sue, I lived in fear, anxiety. Felt blocked, can’t progress. Now, I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I look at life more positively and without procrastination.”

Elsie, Dungog


“I can not believe this difference this has made! Actually, I CAN!! My life is now on an even keel. NIL ANXIETY!!!”

Linda, Lake Macquarie

Sue is a wonderful therapist

“Sue is a wonderful therapist, easy to talk to and extremely good at what she does. I highly recommend Sue and will not hesitate to return to her myself in the future if needed.”


Now he is back enjoying his life

“Sue is amazing, she hypnotised my husband using the Richards Trauma Process and he is now back enjoying his life 😊”

Carol, Charlestown

Traditional medicine had done all it could

“Firstly, I wish to say a big “thank you” to Sue, you are a truly amazing woman! I would also like to apologise for my delay in posting my feedback, it is in no way a reflection of how I felt about the whole Richards Trauma Process. I first had the privilege to meet Sue when she was helping my brother to try and re-gain his life back.. traditional medicine had done all it could do… and nothing was helping it seemed all hope was lost and he was destined to life of severe depression and anxiety, then along can this “Angel”called Sue…. To watch my brothers transformation in such a short space of time, was nothing short of a miracle! It was because of my brothers success that I decided I would try the Richards Trauma process for myself . I have recommended Sue to some of my friends in the hope they take this opportunity to experience this process for themselves. Sue is an extremely caring, and professional person who I found hilariously funny at times… ( in a good way! Sue).”

Robyn, Newcastle

I am so grateful

“The treatment I did with Sue was so helpful. It helped me overcome a lot of emotional baggage and has helped me grow into the person and mother I know I can be. I am so grateful for the skills she taught me and I will carry them with me forever. Highly recommend seeing Sue as she is amazing and I have been told by lots of friends and family how much of a positive change she helped make in my life.”

Jessinta, New Lambton

I cannot believe the differences in my mindset and outlook!

“I cannot believe the differences in my mindset and outlook! Sue was fantastic, personable and reassuring. I would highly recommend this process to anyone who wants to fresh start and outlook on life. It really is just like magic! Thank you Sue!!”

Ellie, Anna Bay

Life changing!

“Amazing program! It’s been life changing. X”

Sue, Wallsend

I feel the difference

“It’s been a year since I came to see you and I feel the difference from the steps I have taken since. I’m so much more aware, healed, positive and at peace. Thanks for your help.”

Sandy, Belmont

I can now move on from the past

“Sue I was skeptical in the beginning, but you certainly made me a believer just after my first session. I honestly can’t believe what a difference you have made. I can now move on from the past and enjoy a wonderful life with my young family. We can’t thank you enough!”

Mel, Maryland

Turbo-charged treatment

“I have often felt that we have a vague blue print attached to our lives that allows us to meander but eventually arrive at the correct destination. I think this treatment was turbo charged assistance to get to that destination in the best shape possible.”

Jill, Newcastle

Engaging and encouraging

“A great therapist who had a great manner of engaging and encouraging me throughout the process . Goals set were realistic and attainable .Sue’s gentle yet strong nature allowed any defenses to be dropped and progress to be made.”

Sarah, Belmont

I can get on with life and have a great time

“I suffer from depression and anxiety and have done all my life. In 2009  I was bitten by a paralysis tick and got a virus called Australian spotted fever (like the lymes thing). This has affected my immune system and nervous system significantly.

You can imagine, that although I thought I had my depression under control, it was challenged significantly by my lovely new virus. Sue identified I had been through trauma as a child and later as an adult and suggested the Richards Trauma Process.

This is like nothing I have been through before, and believe me, I’ve tried. This process does not make you dig up and talk about all the pain and memories and relive them for hours and hours and session after session.

During the process, I saw and spoke to Sue regularly which was fantastic. After each session I felt better, more confident, more capable, more ME. When it was over, my life had changed irrevocably for the better. I can now face what life may have in store for me in the future, which lets face it, could be anything, just like everyone else.

Sue’s kindness, care, focus, support and no nonsense delivery of the program suited me perfectly. She explained everything to me and guided me through the process in such a way that I was not apprehensive and I was excited about what my future might hold.

Well it’s a couple of months since my treatment ended, and I am actually great. I have had a couple setbacks with my illness, but whatever, I can get on with life and have an great time while I’m doing it!

Thank you Sue, for everything, my life is forever better because of you and the Richards Trauma Process.”

Tracy, Wollombi

Free of past crap & trauma

“In the past I had been told that I would be healed, but I never felt FREE. The [therapy] processes I experienced in the Past were gut-wrenchingly traumatic, having to re-tell my story was very PAINFUL. I would leave [therapy] feeling like my guts had been ripped out and I was supposed to then act normal until the next appointment. It was like my wounds would start to heal & then they would be gouged out again, and the same old merry-go-round and roller-coaster would continue.

The Richards Trauma Process is nothing like that.   It is FREEING!!!!!!!!! Even now it feels too good to be true.  FREE!!!!!!!! Thank you Sue, and thank you Judith (Richards)!”

Rhonda, Lake Macquarie

I have more clarity and acceptance

“I saw Sue to release past (childhood) patterns/issues that were holding me back in my life today.

Initially I didn’t think that the process had worked for me at all – mainly due to the fact that I found it almost impossible to relax enough and having Tourette’s [Syndrome] made it even more difficult. Also I was holding an incredible amount of resentment and anger, which was difficult to access and release at the the time.

Weeks later though, the anger and rage came to the surface to be acknowledged and dealt with, and thankfully I now have more clarity and acceptance around significant issues and behaviours, enabling me to make positive changes.”

Nicola, Maitland

Reinforcing a sense of self worth

“It helped to expose and express a lot of embedded stresses and fears and to bring them to the recognition of letting go, with the self-help focus on calming and peaceful places and experience.

The culminating and rapid focus of where my life is at this present time, and the reinforcing of a sense of self worth, and the choice to be and walk with confidence in the future days of my life.

Sue was very supportive, accepting and trusting in her approach.”

Doris, Merewether

Can it be this good?

“Can it be this good? My mind feels relaxed. Negative, self sabotaging thoughts are cleared. I didn’t realise that my life experiences were continually affecting me on a daily basis. Now those things are gone, and they are in the past.  It’s like my mind has been unlocked and I’ve been released. I had no idea I was stuck in the past because of the things that have happened to me and that I have experienced.

Day to day normal every day stresses don’t seem to impact on me as they did, and I can gather my thoughts and use reasoning to handle situations more calmly.

I feel that my mind is clearer and not overloaded with clutter. I can face the future with excitement and no more dread because I can make decisions for myself. I’ve grown up. The child in me has been comforted and treated with proper care and kindness and I no longer need to unknowingly carry and lug around  the pain, shame, fear (trauma) caused by past experiences.”

Rebecca, Hamilton

very good

“It’s very good. I am still adapting to new thoughts and habits. It’s great and I feel more relaxed and content with myself.”

Cécile, Newcastle

I Am Truly Impressed

“I am truly impressed with Sue providing me with the tools in order to overcome my anxiety and fear of flying.

I am yet to test my flying issue, but I’m confident I will cope well when the time comes.

Sue has helped me greatly with my anxiety issues and would recommend [The Richards Trauma Process] to anyone who wants to take control of their life and feel excited to move forward into the future with confidence to take on whatever comes your way!”

Alison, Wallsend

I love hypnotherapy

“Sue is the best! She really helped me learn to relax and helped me understand my problems. She is very caring and really wants to help you. I love hypnotherapy. I really look forward to my future “top ups” with Sue! Highly recommended!!”

Ellie, Mayfield

Sue has helped me find emotional freedom

“Working with Sue has helped me find emotional freedom. It has enabled me to find strength, peace and happiness and manage stressors. The solution was always within me.

I heard an interesting saying the other day, “we are all guaranteed to die, however we are all not guaranteed to live”.

The financial outlay is in no way significant when you receive the benefits. If you are reading this you want things to change in your life and truly live. What are you waiting for?”

Vicki, Maryland

Regained confidence in myself

“I have already given Sue’s details to two friends who I know will benefit from these sessions. Incredibly uplifting – I have regained my confidence in myself and look forward to each day now. Big thankyou, Sue.”

Melanie, Belmont
