RTT® Frequently Asked Questions
What is RTT®?
RTT® stands for Rapid Transformational Therapy®, a method developed by an award-winning Therapist, Marisa Peer in the UK. RTT® embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnosis, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, psychology, neurolinguistics programming (or NLP) and new techniques created by Marisa Peer that are known to produce a transformative effect for clients. Unlike traditional hypnotherapy treatments, RTT® does not rely solely on positive reinforcement. RTT® therapy discovers the underlying root cause of an issue, removing it, then giving the clients the most liberating understanding and transformative power to achieve dramatic, long lasting results. RTT® is endorsed by the National and International Council of Psychotherapists, the American Board of Hypnotherapy, the International Association of Complementary Therapists, plus the International Institute of Complementary Therapies.
What is RTT® Treatment used for?
Because Rapid Transformational Therapy® is a complete solution based approach, it can be used in many different ways. Marisa has achieved phenomenal success helping people overcome all kinds of challenges, including physical health issues, infertility, depression, anxiety, weight management, fears and phobias. She has also helped countless celebrities, athletes and business leaders be at the top of their game.
Is RTT® Hypnotherapy?
Rapid Transformational Therapy® (RTT®) embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnosis and hypnotherapy, known to produce a transformative effect on clients. However, the RTT® method goes beyond traditional hypnotherapy, diagnosing what works best with clients to build a new highly effective therapeutic approach.
Marisa explains that RTT® “doesn’t come from a single methodology; it comes from the unique layering of techniques and beliefs that I created and now teach.”
How is the Marisa Peer Method Different?
Marisa Peer’s RTT® method is different to other therapy techniques, such as CBT and talk therapy, because it achieves outstanding results very quickly. RTT® is becoming more recognized and validated on a regular basis with course graduates reporting near-immediate success.
Unlike many hypnotherapy treatments, RTT® does not rely solely on positive reinforcement. RTT® therapy gets to the root cause of an issue, giving the clients the most liberating understanding and transformative power to achieve dramatic long-lasting results.
What’s the difference between RTT® and NLP?
People who have heard of the RTT® method, but not experienced it for themselves, sometimes think it sounds similar to Neuro-Linguistic Processing (NLP).
It’s true that both NLP and RTT® can teach you how to better dialogue with your mind and understand the difference between what your subconscious and conscious mind believe. However, RTT® has the added—and crucial—step of also directly accessing and fixing whatever blocks may be there. It has the addition of ‘The Transformation’, developed by Marisa herself. Using specific RTT® therapy methods, clients are able to reach breakthroughs that would not be possible with other techniques.
How can RTT® treatment impact physical health and life-long behaviors?
RTT® offers a comprehensive range of transformational techniques, including command therapy, to activate the body's innate ability to heal and restore itself to wellness from a cellular level.
Science has proven with neuroplasticity that we can actually rewire our minds, which is why it has the most powerful potential on the planet. Using RTT® to access the almighty subconscious mind, we can create new neural pathways and replace old limiting beliefs and behaviors with new empowering ones.
Marisa has been developing, testing and perfecting this method over three decades, with real clients from royalty to rock stars, Olympic athletes to overeaters and everything in between.

What can you expect from a session?
As the client, you will work alongside the RTT® Practitioner in uncovering the meaning and interpretation of events and then changing them. This leads to permanent powerful change because RTT® enables the mind to tell the body what to do, for example heal itself, easily move away from addictions and turn fear into excitement. If you are in physical or emotional pain you, want rapid results. RTT® aims to deliver lasting change with 1 to 3 sessions.
What techniques will you use?
Some techniques used in RTT® sessions are:
Getting you into a deep relaxed yet awake state to effectively access the subconscious mind, to create new neural pathways and replace old limiting beliefs and behaviors with new empowering ones
Detective Work 🕵
Gets to the root cause of an issue, especially those from your childhood and uncover how it affects you today.
Command Cell Therapy 🔅
Purposefully healing the body, as opposed to positive conditioning alone.
Role, Function, Purpose, Intention ⛓
Recognizes and values the significance you attach to your issues/problems and then offers a powerful emotional release for them (break the chain)
Upgrading the Child 👶
Overcome childhood issues that you may be holding on for years.
How long does it take?
Each Rapid Transformational Therapy® session lasts between 1-1/2 to 2 hours. For that reason, we ask you block of a full 2 hours in your calendar to make sure you’re not rushed.
What does it feel like?
The experience feels different for different people. Some people feel a floating sensation, some do not. Others may feel sleepy, some do not. Most people feel relaxed 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.
How does it work?
Breakthroughs are achieved by understanding and fixing the root cause, rather than just addressing the symptoms of the presenting issue. This is why RTT® has such a permanent all-pervasive impact, as it erases and eradicates issues at the core for life-changing benefits.
All RTT® therapists are equipped with an array of techniques and tools that are crucial, not just in teaching how to communicate with the subconscious mind, but also directly accessing and fixing whatever blockages there may be and reprogramming your mind for success.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is not 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) state. That’s what allows you to access the subconscious mind. It’s very easy and anyone can do it, you’ll see for yourself when you do it too! "Hypnosis is a way of directly accessing the subconscious mind so that clients can understand what is running their unwanted behaviors and then become free of them, through a process of suggestion that bypasses the conscious mind and the critical factor, allowing the mind to accept a suggestion it would previously have not accepted." – Marisa Peer Feb 2017
Can I get “stuck” in hypnosis?
No! That’s an old wives’ tale. You have complete control the whole time. You can talk, move your body, get a tissue, even get up and leave (I’ve had clients who had to stop to pee before!). If our call gets disconnected you may drift into sleep if you’re really relaxed, but eventually you’ll notice that you’re not hearing my voice and open your eyes.
What if I don’t “go deep” enough?
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 is not linked to results at all. So don’t get stuck on “Am I deep enough?” Just tell yourself the truth - “This is working” and it will absolutely work. Just know that it is effective.
What if I think I already know the reasons behind my issue?
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. And for many clients they go back to scenes that are totally different than what they expected. Just relax and trust that your subconscious mind will show you exactly what you need to see.
What if I go back to scenes that are painful or scary?
If you go back to scenes 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 that you are safe. I will support you and create a safe space for you to express your emotions and heal - you’ll be okay.
When will I start to see changes?
There are 3 types of change from Rapid Transformational Therapy® - every person is different:
Immediate: You feel a massive shift right away, immediate changes in your physiology, thoughts and behaviors right in the session.
Incremental: 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.
What if I need or want another session?
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 sessions. Most want to keep doing sessions to work on other areas of their life and receive guidance to integrate the new beliefs and build new habits and behaviors. For these reasons I offer a 3-session Rapid Transformational Experience package. For those who want continued support on their change journey. For those who are dedicated to personal mastery, we can discuss my exclusive 6 and 12-session Ultimate Transformation packages.
