Frequently asked questions
Here are a few answers to the most common questions about Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT).
What is the difference between Rapid Transformational Therapy and Hypnotherapy?
Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnosis and hypnotherapy that are known to produce a transformative effect on clients: the use of trance, regression and hypnotic conditioning. However, RTT goes beyond this, diagnosing what works with clients to build a new therapeutic approach. Unlike many hypnotherapies, RTT does not rely solely on positive reinforcement but brings awareness to the root cause of our issues, then the positive reinforcement can be used whilst the mind is receptive and ready for transformation.
What is the benefit of combining RTT and Intuitive Therapies?
Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is a hybrid hypnotherapy, which combines Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Hypnosis and deep relaxation. I also bring to my practice my natural intuitive ability, which I was born with. I use this within my sessions to assist with the success of the outcomes of my client’s transformations. I can see and feel where my clients may need to be pushed and may not want to go because of fear but I can assist them to safely unpack and release those limiting beliefs; therefore further building on the success of RTT.
Can RTT be used with children and teens?
Yes, Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) and hypnotherapy can be used with children and teens. Generally, I do not use RTT on children under the age of 12, so I successfully use standard hypnosis with these children instead.
Do you have experience in dealing with trauma?
I am a fully trained Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) Therapist. Almost every client I see with RTT has experienced trauma. I am able to hold that space with my clients to allow for their great healing to occur.
How long does it take?
Each Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) session lasts between 90 minutes to 2 hours. For that reason, I suggest blocking at least 2 hours in your calendar to make sure you’re not rushed and have a quiet evening following the session.
What does it feel like?
The experience feels different for different people. Some people feel a floating sensation or sleepy feeling and others don’t. Generally, most people feel relaxed, calm and at ease. What is important is everyone may feel different but that is not an indicator of how effective RTT is because regardless of what it feels like – it’s working!
Can I get “stuck” in hypnosis?
No, this is an “old wives’ tale”. You have complete control the entire time and you can talk, move your body, get a tissue, even get up and leave (or stop to go to the toilet). If doing Skype or Zoom session and our call got disconnected you may drift into sleep if you’re really relaxed, but eventually you’ll notice that you’re not hearing my voice and open your eyes and then reconnect the call.
How does it work?
Hypnosis is not magic, it’s science! It works by creating a burst of brain waves that are the same as when you’re in deep REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. This is what allows you to access the subconscious mind. It’s very easy and anyone can do it, you’ll see for yourself when you do it too.
What if I don’t go deeply enough into hypnosis?
Don’t worry about how deep you go into hypnosis, forget all about that as it’s not important. The depth of the hypnotic state is not linked to results at all. Try not to think about ‘am I in hypnosis, I don’t feel any different, I must not be going under?’ Just tell yourself the truth, which is ‘this is working’ and it absolutely works whether lightly or deeply in hypnosis, it is just as effective, so take that pressure off yourself.
What if I think I already know the reasons behind my issue/s?
What makes Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) amazing is that even if you think you know the cause or reason for your issues, you see it in a new way with your adult wisdom. This is what allows you to change the meaning and ultimately, change your beliefs. Many clients go back to scenes that are totally different than what they expected, so I suggest relaxing and trusting that your inner subconscious mind will show you exactly what you need to see to allow for your transformation.
What if I go back to scenes that are painful, scary or traumatic?
If you go back to scenes from your life that are related to things like sexual or physical abuse, or other trauma, it’s important to remember that you are not reliving that scene, but you are simply reviewing it and you are completely safe. I will support you and create a safe space for you to express your emotions and heal that part of your life, you will be okay.
When will I start to see changes?
There are 3 types of change from Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) – every person is different:
- Immediate: You feel a massive shift right away – immediate changes in your physiology, thoughts and behaviours in the session.
- Incremental: You see consistent shifts every day, or over time.
- Retroactive: You don’t see the shifts right away and then one day you suddenly look back and see all the things that are different in your life.
What if I need or want another session?
Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is designed to give you a powerful breakthrough and create big changes in your life. Some clients may need more than one RTT session on a particular issue, depending on how deep it is, it can take up to 3 sessions.
