Frequently Asked Questions
What is Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT)?
RTT is a one-of-a-kind therapy that combines the best of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and works much quicker than these therapies used individually.
Developed by world renowned celebrity therapist, Marisa Peer, RTT recognises that clients are time-starved and in pain and therefore want quick results so RTT works in rapid time regression is used to find the root cause of your issue and free you from it forever.

What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a heightened state of relaxation a little like zoning out in front of the TV. Under hypnotherapy our brainwave frequency slows down to something called the Theta State (around 4 to 7 pulses per second). In this trance like state you’re able to connect with everything you store in your subconscious mind and find all the resources you need there to help you change.
During hypnotherapy you may feel like you’re asleep but you’ll be alert and taking everything in. Hypnosis helps us work to a high level of consciousness and uses the power of positive suggestion to help us change our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Put simply, our subconscious mind has all the resources it needs to heal itself; hypnotherapy connects with this subconscious mind to access these resources and bring about positive change.
How is RTT different from traditional hypnotherapy?
During an RTT session regression is used to help you find out the root cause of your issue. We go back to three or four different scenes from your past which are then linked together to discover how they have contributed to the issue you’re currently facing. We all experience things differently so when we go back to those past situations under hypnotherapy we work together to put different perceptions on them to free you from any past pain.
Following this, a personalised recording is then made to help eliminate old negative beliefs and create positive new ones. This recording is tailored to you and your needs and you’re required to listen to it for 28 days following the session to fully embed the new beliefs.
RTT is different to hypnotherapy because it’s tailored specifically to you and your needs, it gets to the root cause of the issue by revisiting several scenes from your past to build a picture of why you are the way you are today and it provides you with a personalised recording to take away with you to embed new beliefs.
With traditional hypnotherapy you’ll have a series of sessions which aren’t always tailored to your needs, it doesn’t revisit several scenes from your past to help you understand the ‘why’ (some hypnotherapists don’t revisit your past at all) and you don’t get anything to take away with you to help reinforce new beliefs.
Having worked both as a traditional hypnotherapist and an RTT therapist I can definitely say that RTT produces much better results.
Is hypnotherapy and RTT safe?
Yes, you’re in control at all times and you can stop at any time if you want to. Hypnosis is a heightened state of relaxation, a little like zoning out in front of the TV. During hypnotherapy you may feel like you’re asleep but you’ll be alert and taking everything in and when you look at scenes from your past you only revisit them, you don’t ever relive them.
Why is the recording so important?
Our minds learn by repetition. The recording lays down new pathways or connections between neurons in our minds. These new pathways are strengthened by continually listening to the recording and as they become strengthened new behaviours become second nature. The recording is customised just for you using words that resonate with you to help embed new beliefs much more quickly.
Can someone be hypnotised over Zoom?
Zoom sessions are just as effective as face-to-face sessions you just need to be somewhere comfortable where you won’t be disturbed for the duration of the session. Many clients actually prefer Zoom sessions as they like to be in their own homes where they feel most comfortable.
Are you qualified?
Yes. In 2011 I trained at Birkbeck University under the tutelage of the Contemporary College of Therapeutic Studies to become a certified Hypnotherapy, NLP and CBT practitioner and counsellor. More recently I trained as a Rapid Transformational Therapy Practitioner with world renowned celebrity therapist, Marisa Peer, and since doing this my results with clients have been even more phenomenal.
My qualifications are accredited with the following organisations:

What if I can't be hypnotised?
Anyone that wants to be hypnotised can be hypnotised. Hypnosis is just a heightened state of relaxation like zoning out in front of the TV and you're still fully aware of everything that's going on. For clients that find it difficult to relax I send them a relaxation recording a couple of weeks before their session to get them used to going into hypnosis.
What if I go back to a painful or scary memory?
When we go back to scenes from your past you'll never relive them you'll only revisit them and you're in control the whole time so you can choose whether you want to revisit a scene or not. I'm with you every step of the way and you're in a safe space where we'll be healing those scenes for good. Lots of people say it feels like a weight's been lifted after they've revisited - and healed - any past trauma.
