Biographical Info

About Lesley Nicholson and The Richards Trauma Process 

Lesley is committed to assisting people to live a true authentic meaningful life free of past trauma, depression, anxiety with its emotional and physical pain.  We are here to live – really live!!  TRTP is the best vehicle Lesley has found to bring this about.  Lesley knows about PTSD having personally experienced severe trauma with domestic violence. Years of therapy, often painful talking sessions may have helped some with self esteem but talking about what happened to you  is rarely useful and really is not enough. One reason Lesley like TRTP is that the client does not have to rehash all those painful memories. Working with the unconscious mind – where all that pain is stored is the key to resolution.  Its only three sessions most of the time and empowerment comes in first in session one.

Always interested in the whole person – mind body and spirit, Lesley initially trained in clinical hypnosis in 1986 (when working as a hospital physiotherapist) to help those in chronic pain that physical therapies didn’t help. She knew that for many people there was more to their pain story than just tissue damage or, say, a herniated disc. All aspects of a person: mind, body and spirit is affected whether an injury is emotional or physical.

Lesley finds The Richards Trauma Process – TRTP-as the most effective, fastest and no-nonsense way to deal with depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, chronic pain, phobias and many other issues. This process is so real and the healing profound paving a way to create the life you want to create free of the shackles of the past. Because TRTP is done using hypnosis and is NOT a talking therapy,  there is no re-triggering of old issues and pain. Most issues are cleared in 3 sessions. Acupuncture and energetic healing modalities DO make you feel better – but they can be like mere band aid therapies if there is unresolved underlying trauma. Hypnotherapy gets to the core of underlying problems stored in the Unconscious mind.

Lesley aspires to results that are about permanent and profound change – mental, physical and spiritual. See some of the video testimonials on the Teal Flame Healing Centre’s Facebook page and YouTube.

Lesley also uses hypnosis for the Virtual Gastric Band for resolving obesity. It is not uncommon to find yo-yo dieters sabotage because childhood trauma has led them to believe they are not good enough. They may have an armour of fat keeping them protected and safe. Lesley explains that if trauma is behind the weight gain they are better to do TRTP first – put the past in the past, lose the need to comfort eat and protect. Often these people lose weight after doing the Richards Trauma Process and don’t need to have the hypnotic gastric band.
