Q: What is Rapid Transformational Therapy?
A: RTT embraces the positive aspects of hypnosis and hypnotherapy that are known to produce impressive results. However RTT goes beyond standard positive reinforcement hypnosis by teaching you how to communicate with your subconscious mind and directly identify and release blockages that are holding you back. RTT is a unique layering of techniques that produce rapid tranformative results, leaving you with an upgraded view of youreslf and the world.
Q: How long does it take?
A: One on one sessions and group sessions last between 90 minutes and 2 hours. Plan to block off the full two hours so that you don’t feel rushed.
Q: What does it feel like?
A: It’s different for every person. Some people will feel a drifting, floating sensation, others will not. Some feel sleepy, some do not. Generally people feel released and at ease. What’s most important is to know that how you feel isn’t an indicator of how effective it is. Regardless of what it feels like – it’s working, I promise.
Q: Can I get “stuck” in hypnosis?
A: No, that’s an old wives tale. You are in complete control the entire time. You can talk, move your body, get a tissue, even get up and leave (to use the bathroom most likely). If the session gets interrupted you may drift off to sleep but soon you’ll realize you haven’t heard my voice and open your eyes.
Q: How does it work?
A: Hypnosis isn’t magic – it’s science! It works by creating a burst of brain waves that are the same as when you’re in REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. That’s how you’re able to access the subconscious mind. It’s very easy and anyone can do it, you’ll see for yourself when you do it too!
Q: What if I don’t “go deep” enough?
A: Don’t worry about how deep you go. I want you to forget all about that. It’s really not important. The depth of trance/hypnosis is not linked to results at all. So don’t get stuck on “am I deep enough”, or “is this working”. Just tell yourself the truth – “this is working” and it will absolutely work. (Just know it is working.)
Q: What if I think I already know the reasons behind my issue?
A: What makes RTT amazing is that even if you think you know the reason, you see it in a completely new way. That’s what allows you to change the meaning and ultimately, change your beliefs. You may go back to scenes you already remember, and many clients go back to scenes that are totally different than what they expected. Some clients experience a combination of scenes that they expect and others that surprise them, but they all relate to the issue because your subconscious knows just where to go. Just relax and trust that your subconscious mind will show you exactly what you need to see.
Q: What if I go back to scenes that are painful or scary?
A: If you go back to scene 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, you are simply reviewing it and you are safe. I will support you and create a safe space for you to express your emotions and heal. (Also remember that it is much healthier for you to bring traumatic scenes like this into your conscious awareness than for them to stay stuck in your subconscious where you don't realize it; that's what causes all the problems in the first place!)
Q: When will I start to see change?
A: There are 3 types of change in Rapid Transformational Therapy
Immediate change: You feel a massive shift right away – immediate change in your physiology, thoughts and behaviors right in the session.
Incremental change: 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 of the things that are different in your life.
Each person is unique and responds differently. (You may experience a combination of these various kinds of results. All are extremely beneficial, and what they have in common is that you think about life in a way that allows you to be more positive, productive, and powerful.)
Q: What if I need or want another session?
A: 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. Most want to keep doing sessions to work on other areas of their life and receive coaching to integrate the new beliefs and build new habits and behaviors.
