Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How long does it take?
A. Each Rapid Transformational Therapy session lasts between 90 minutes and 2 hours. For that reason, I ask you to block out a full 2 hours to ensure that the session isn’t rushed.

Q. How does it work?
A. RTT incorporates a form of hypnosis. Hypnosis works by creating that same brain waves that you experience when you are in REM. This is what allows you to access the subconscious mind. It’s very easy and anyone can do it.

Q. What does it feel like?
A. You may not be aware that the average person goes into a hypnotic state several times a day – it’s called day dreaming! It is a natural state so won’t feel unfamiliar to you. A good example is when driving your car and you can’t remember how you got to your destination. The experience of hypnosis feels different for everyone and there is no right or wrong way. Some people feel a floating sensation, others feel quite sleepy, and some feel very much awake. The results are effective regardless of how deep into hypnosis you go.

Q. Am I in control?
A. You are always in control and cannot be made to do anything that you don’t want to do. You cannot be taken into hypnosis against your will. Contrary to the ‘hypno-tainment’ style hypnotherapy that we see in stage shows, you will not be dancing like a chicken or kissing a lamp shade. You also cannot get “stuck; in hypnosis, You can talk, move your body, get a tissue, even get up and leave or take a bathroom break. 

Q. What if I can’t enter hypnosis?
A. Everyone can be hypnotized. As long as you wish to enter hypnosis, you will. It’s an easy and thoroughly relaxing process.

Q. What if I don’t “go deep” enough?
A. Don’t worry about how deep you go. It’s really not important to the outcome. The depth of trance is not linked to your results. So don’t get stuck on “Am I deep enough?” Just tell yourself “This is working” and it absolutely will work. Just know that the process is effective.

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 for your issue, you get to see it in a completely new way. That’s what allows you to change the meaning, and ultimately change your beliefs and behaviours. Many clients, even when they think they know their triggers, go back to scenes that are totally different to what they expected. Just relax and trust that your subconscious mind will show you exactly what you need to see. 

Q. Does RTT involve regression?
A. Yes. This is a powerful technique for identifying the root cause of an issue. What you see may make you feel sad or joyful, but either way you are simply ‘observing’ not ‘reliving’.

Q. What if I go back to scenes that are painful or scary?
A. If you go back to scenes from your life that are traumatic, it’s important to remember that you are not ‘reliving’ that scene, you are simply ‘reviewing’ it. You are completely safe, and you will be supported in expressing your emotions in order to heal.

Q. What if I uncover something that I don’t want to share?
A. You are in complete control of what you chose to share. If you don’t want to reveal something then you won’t. You can still be helped to heal simply by sharing the feelings you have, rather than the experience.

Q. When will I start to see changes?
A. There are phases of change as a result of RTT. Every person is different and will experience change at their own pace. Change may be:
Immediate – where you experience a huge shift right away – with instant changes in your physiology, thoughts and behaviors, during or just after the session.
Incremental – where you start to notice small shifts every day, over a period of time.
Retroactive – where you don’t notice any significant change right away, then one day you look back and suddenly notice all of the things that are different in your life. 

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 session on a particular issue, depending on how deep the issue is. Some issues may require up to three sessions.  Some clients want to keep doing sessions to work on other areas of their life, and can continue to integrate new beliefs, habits and behaviors. 

Q. What if I can’t attend a face-to-face session?
A. Online sessions are available for clients who are out of area or who can’t physically make it to an appointment. Online sessions are equally effective as face-to-face. Currently Zoom is the preferred method for online sessions and all instructions for using Zoom will be shared with you.
