Frequently Asked Questions

What is Rapid Transformational Therapy® (RTT®)?

Rapid Transformational Therapy®, founded by Marissa Peer, is therapy under hypnosis.  It combines the best features of Hypnotherapy, NLP, Psychotherapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies to create a life-changing therapy designed to give you a decisive breakthrough and make a substantial change in your life.

Does it work?

RTT is persuasive and ground-breaking.  It’s a hybrid technology, taking and improving upon many previous techniques and combining them into a single methodology.  It is a simple, safe, natural, and proven approach.

Does RTT® Therapy use hypnotherapy?

Yes, the session uses a deepening exercise, and then the client enters a calm trance-like state throughout, which enables the person to communicate with their subconscious mind and bring about the change they want.

What is hypnosis, and how will I feel?

“A state of consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness, characterised by an enhanced response to suggestions.” ~ The American Psychological Association (APA)

Something extraordinary happens in the mind during hypnosis that makes it very open to change.  In plain and simple terms, you allow your mind to enter a state that enables you to open to new possibilities and suggestions and erase unhelpful behaviour patterns, leaving you feeling empowered and free.

How does it work?

Hypnosis is not magic – it’s science.  It works by creating a burst of alpha brain waves like when you’re in REM.  That’s what allows you to access the subconscious mind.  It’s straightforward, and anyone can do it.  You’ll see for yourself when you do it too.

Will I be asleep?

No.  You are awake and alert, aware of everything happening throughout the session.  You don’t go to sleep.  You are fully aware and in control.  It’s a deep meditative state.

Will I be under your power?

No.  You are in charge.  You cannot be taken into hypnosis against your will or made to do or say anything.

What can I do to prepare for the session?

Get excited about your session, telling yourself you have finally found something that will work for you and that you’re ready for changes in your life.

How many sessions will I need?

RTT® is fast, effective, and permanent and most people only require one to three sessions to address an issue.  I will advise you at your initial appointment.

When will I start to see changes?

There are three types of change from Rapid Transformational Therapy – every person is different:

Immediate: You feel a massive shift right away, quick changes in your physiology, thoughts, and behaviours right in the session.

Incremental: You see consistent shifts every day or overtime.

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.

It is essential that clients feel supported, even after our session together.  I will remain in touch with you after your appointment, checking in with you on days 7, 14 & 21 for our ‘Follow Up Session`.  Plus, I’m hand should you need me.

Does RTT® involve regression?

RTT® does include regressions back to scenes, which helps us locate the root cause or belief behind an issue.

Regression is not about re-living the experience; it’s about reviewing it.  Then we can make sense of the significance, relevance and meaning attributed to it.  Some scenes may bring sadness, be upsetting, or be joyful, but you will feel completely safe as you stay an observer.

What if I go back to scenes that are painful or scary?

I am with you every step of the way.  If those scenes pop up, keep in mind that you are revisiting memories rather than re-living them.  There is no need for guilt or shame, and you are in a safe, non-judgmental space.

Where is the session held?

Online are just as effective as in-person sessions.  Most sessions are in Zoom calls which enables you to enjoy the freedom of relaxing at home without the need to travel.

Can we have a conversation before I book your service?

Absolutely!  We can meet and see if my services meet your needs.
