RTT is short for rapid transformational therapy. But do these words even belong together in the same sentence? Our perception is usually that therapy is a slow process and you can go to psychotherapy for years.
Therapy comes from greek therapeia and means service, care, healing.
Transformation means according to the dictionary - radical change of form, transformation, reshaping, transformation, which is also usually associated with something that takes time.
Personally, I have come to know "Rapid Transforming Therapy" as it claims to be, an incredibly exciting, effective and powerful form of therapy that goes deep into the subconscious and inexorably finds the root cause of the problem.
The tools used in therapy are chosen with care and with 100% focus on efficiency and results. The goal is always to give the client a quick and permanent change. What strongly contributes to making the therapy deep and transformative is that the therapy is performed in a state of hypnosis. Therefore, only one treatment is usually needed.
So who is the person behind this revolutionary form of therapy?
Marisa Peer is one of the UK's most well-known therapists. She has been a therapist for almost her entire working life, which means 35 years. She has written five books and is a sought-after speaker and columnist. She has been featured in Tatler's guide The UK's 250 Best Doctors. Therapists go to Marisa for therapy.
Marisa discovered early in her professional life as a therapist common deep basic denominators in her clients. She questioned some authorities' claims about the complexity of the mind with the argument - if the mind is so complex that it "takes a lifetime to understand it", how are we going to help someone? "
Furthermore, what presented itself as a series of symptoms very often had as a root cause, a feeling of inadequacy, not feeling enough
Through experiences from thousands of clients, including well-known actors, athletes and royalty, she has put together a system, a methodology of tools, which together capture the root cause of the client's problem and illuminate it so that the client has a basic understanding of it. With the help of that understanding, it is transformed into new beliefs the client has described in advance that it strives for.
She has picked the techniques / tools that she thinks have worked best from psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, NLP (neurolinguistic programming) and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy).
RTT as a method has received a number of awards, including the Stevie Awards for effective therapy. She has had Gil Boyne (an American pioneer in modern hypnotherapy) as a mentor and other big names like Milton Ericson, David Viscott and Dave Elman as teachers and inspiration in hypnosis.
Rtt has been described as practical neuroscience since we work i a neuroplastic condition, hypnosis, when the subconscious mind accepts new ideas and instructions that it would otherwise not do in its daily consciousness. Through hypnosis, one passes the daily critical mind, and instructions can be given directly to the subconscious, which drives unwanted behaviors, but which also holds the potential to plant positive habits that are consciously chosen.
Neuroplasticity can be described as the brain's inherent ability to constantly learn new things throughout life and be physiologically transformed. That thoughts and behaviors that are performed often form "trampled paths" in the neural network (the network of brain cells) and that one can "trample new paths" (behaviors) and let even deep-seated pathways die due to lack of use and attention.
RTT is very tuned in on the language we use.
RTT recognizes and uses The creative force of language. Which language lowers our mood and sabotages our lives, and what language motivates, builds and stimulates the imagination. The language we use in speech but also in our inner speech, our inner dialogue and the opinion, the value we have about ourselves, our self image. Vårt tal om oss själva till oss själva. (om du nu när du läser detta tänker (jag har ingen sån röst) så är det just den jag menar 🙂
A basic thesis is that thought comes first and is what causes feelings.
As we think we feel and as we feel we act or perform behaviors, which in turn gives circumstances and results. Everything you feel and everything your mind reacts to depends on only two things: the words you use and the images you create in your head.
When we want to build new behaviors, it is important to stimulate the mind with a powerful, sensational and imaginative language.
What is hypnosis?
We move in cyckles naturally through different stages of consciousness through the rhythm of a day. At dawn the pineal gland is stimulated tallkottkörteln in the middle of the brain via daylight and the optic nerve to produce the neurotransmitter serotonin for day consciousness, and activity in the external world. And when darkness falls, the neurotransmitter melatonin to get us relaxed and ready for sleep.
When brain cells communicate with each other, an electric charge is formed which gives rise to brain waves.
In the waking state, the brain is dominated by different types of beta brain waves (14-30 Hz, oscillations per second), and in sleep and deep sleep, theta (4-8 Hz) and delta brain waves dominate, which are the slowest (1-3 Hz, oscillations per second).
Beta brain waves are "ordinary" day-conscious, while theta and delta brain waves belong to the subconscious. Between the theta and the beta brain waves we have alpha brain waves (8-13 Hz, oscillations per second). Alpha brain waves can be said to constitute the borderland between the conscious and the subconscious.
It is a creativelearning here and now or "awake relaxation", focus, visualization, a creative state. A state where the inner world is more real than the outer. Hypnosis is a state of alfa, and in some cases theta brain waves. In this state, one can successfully work with therapeutic tools of which RTT is an example. Hypnosis, alpha brain waves state is as natural condition for us as the other times when other brain waves dominate our brain, which happens daily.
If you compare RTT but conventional hypnotherapy we can see that the differences are actually more than the similarities. Conventional hypnotherapy usually consists of a long induction (the technique of taking a client into hypnosis) of about half an hour and the rest of the session consisting of positive suggestions, instructions.
RTT has a rapid induction, getting down into hypnosis, max ten minutes. The majority of the session is then devoted to using the tools, which are seven. The basic tool is regressions back to three scenes. The other tools are used intuitively depending on what emerges. Suggestions or new suggestions are then used in a sond recording, a transformation, which the client will then listen to daily for three weeks to reinforce and encode the changes of the session. To "trample" a new neural path. Which leads to a new way of thinking and thus new behaviors.
