How the TRC started…

The TRC started when Betsy de Thierry, Founder and Chair of the Trustees of the Trauma Recovery Centre, had a dream of the building as a trauma centre helping many families who had no one to support them in the aftermath of a traumatic experience. 


Using over 20 years of experience and knowledge built up working as a teacher and therapist in a number of organisations and delivering training to professionals about complex trauma in many different organisations and charities, Betsy founded and set up the Trauma Recovery Centre (TRC) in May 2011. Since then, Betsy has worked to build a core a team of professionals to fulfil the vision of the TRC; to see people restored from trauma  and she now supports the charity as Chair of the Trustees.


As a charity we do hold Christian values, and yet we value diversity and enjoy working with people from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds and those of faith or no faith.


We are very grateful to the church who host the large HQ of the TRC, Freedom Centre UK. They also provided seed funding for the TRC to start and continue to support the charity financially.


The TRC is now well established with excellent, highly specialised staff and is able to run due the overwhelming generosity of grant makers, businesses and individuals who support the charity.
