Growth Strategy #54: Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT)

Growth Strategy #54: Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT)

I became a fan of Marisa Peer after watching several Youtube videos, where she talks about her experience as a therapist and shares her unique methodology
Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT).  

Like Marisa, I am a believer that some people are able to achieve and sustain lasting change by identifying and addressing underlying causes, like limiting beliefs to overcome challenges in a relatively short period of time

Good for: Identifying and moving beyond unconscious drivers and limiting beliefs
Best completed by: A trainer practitioner

RTT combines elements of hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and cognitive behavioural therapy to help individuals overcome personal challenges and achieve personal growth.

It is designed to quickly identify and address the underlying causes of negative patterns and behaviours, such as anxiety, depression, and phobias, and create lasting change.  

RTT sessions typically last between 90 minutes and 2 hours, and clients are often able to experience significant improvement in their symptoms after just one or two sessions.

The main benefits are helping individuals change negative patterns and behaviours by addressing the underlying causes.  Leading to helping individuals with and improving self-esteem and self-confidence, removing barriers to achieving goals and aspirations, greater personal fulfilment and satisfaction etc.

Marisa claims the therapy has also been used to help individuals overcome phobias, anxiety, and depression, improving physical and mental health and claims it can be faster and more effective than other forms of traditional talk therapy.  

Albert Einstein suggested 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.'

As a trained master practitioner of NLP and hypnosis, I know there is great power in helping someone tap into the power of their unconscious mind to create positive change in their lives.   NLP is a set of techniques that focus on how we process information and how language and behaviour are related.

RTT practitioners believe that the unconscious mind holds the key to understanding why an individual may be experiencing negative patterns and behaviours, and that by accessing this level of the mind, they can identify the root cause of the problem.  

I love the use of a variety of modalities and during an RTT session, the therapist is thought to guide the client into a state of hypnosis,  using specific language and techniques to help them access limiting beliefs or past experiences that may be contributing to the negative pattern or behaviour.  Once the underlying causes have been identified, the therapist will use techniques such as reframing, visualization, and affirmations to help the client create new, more positive patterns of thought and behaviour.

As a personal growth strategy, I believe the goal of RTT is to help the client create lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of negative patterns and behaviours, rather than just treating the symptoms. This is why Marisa, refers to RTT as a "rapid" form of therapy, as it is designed to produce significant changes in a relatively short amount of time.

I believe there is great power in identifying limiting beliefs or past experiences that may be contributing to a negative pattern or behaviour, especially those that act as roadblocks that prevent an individual from making positive changes or progress in their life.

Limiting beliefs: Typically formed in childhood as a result of past experiences and can include negative self-talk, such as "I'm not good enough" or "I'll never be successful." These beliefs can be so ingrained that they become a part of an individual's identity and can unconsciously influence their behaviour.

Past experiences: Can also contribute to negative patterns or behaviours. For example, if an individual experienced a traumatic event in the past, it can leave them with unresolved emotions or memories that can manifest in negative ways such as anxiety, depression, or phobias.


For example, if an individual identifies a limiting belief that "I am not good enough," they can challenge this belief by questioning its validity, and replacing it with more positive thoughts and self-talk. They can also work on resolving past experiences that may be contributing to this belief and the negative pattern that it creates. This process can help the individual to overcome the negative pattern or behaviour and can lead to personal growth and fulfillment.

Another example of a limiting belief that can be resolved using RTT is the belief that "I am not worthy of love and happiness." This belief can be formed as a result of past experiences such as growing up in a household where love and affection were not shown, or experiencing rejection or abandonment in past relationships.
This belief can manifest in negative patterns of behaviour, such as difficulty forming and maintaining healthy relationships, low self-esteem, and a lack of motivation to pursue one's goals and aspirations.

Marisa suggests that once identified, the therapist would use techniques such as reframing, visualization, and affirmations to help the client create new, more positive thoughts and beliefs about themselves and their worthiness for love and happiness. They would also help the client to let go of any negative emotions or memories that may be associated with past experiences.

The goal of RTT is to help the client create lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of negative patterns and behaviours. By resolving the limiting belief that they are not worthy of love and happiness, the client can begin to form healthier relationships, improve self-esteem, and pursue their goals with more motivation and confidence.

There are several ways for someone to access (RTT).

  1. The most common way is to find a certified RTT practitioner in your area. A quick internet search can help you find practitioners near you.
  2. Attending a workshop or training program. RTT training is available for individuals who are interested in becoming practitioners themselves.
  3. Online sessions, which are becoming more popular. Online sessions can be done via video conferencing platforms, and it can be as effective as in-person sessions as long as the practitioner is well-trained and certified.

It's important to note that RTT is not a substitute for medical treatment or psychiatric care, and it is recommended to consult with a qualified health professional if you have any concerns about your health or well-being.  

It's always a good idea to do your research and check the practitioner's credentials, qualifications, and experience before deciding to work with them. It is also recommended to schedule a consultation with the practitioner to discuss your goals, expectations and to see if the practitioner and the therapy is a good fit for you.
