Welcome to the NZ Trauma Recovery Trust: helping individuals overcome trauma and rebuild their lives.

NZ Trauma Recovery Trust is a group of nationally and internationally certified NLP Master Practitioners and Trainers working with victims of trauma. Using ground-breaking techniques that provide profound and lasting relief from trauma and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), we are helping people who have suffered from disasters such as the tsunami in Samoa in September 2009. NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming, the study of excellence in a range of areas including therapy, personal change, communication and education. The NLP techniques we employ have been shown to be the most effective solution to treating PTSD in war zones and post 9-11.
