Rapid Transformational Therapy or RTT embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnosis and hypnotherapy that are known to produce a transformative effect on clients: the use of trance, regression, and hypnotic conditioning. However, RTT goes beyond, diagnosing what works with real clients in real sessions to build a new therapeutic approach. Marisa identified that regardless of their issue, in sessions clients benefitted from her applying a particular set of techniques over and over again. These insights provided the foundations for Rapid Transformational Therapy to emerge as a distinctive approach.
What does it look like?
We know that clients are time-starved and come to us in pain, both physical or emotional. They want rapid results. So the first difference with RTT is it aims to deliver permanent change in a single 90-minute session. Although some clients and some issues will need up to 3 sessions.
The second difference with RTT is it is a method that truly empowers clients. By using a technique called Role Function, Purpose, it honors, and values the significance clients attach to their issues/problems and then offers as a powerful emotional release for them. They can actually be free from pain.
The third difference with RTT is its use of Command Cell therapy as a modality for purposefully healing the body, as opposed to positive conditioning alone.
Lastly, RTT draws out ‘unfinished business’, meaning it is a technique for addressing the trauma that clients have been holding onto for many years.
Upgrading the Child offers a therapeutic space for dialogue and communication with significant others.
Marisa has developed other unique techniques including:
- Merging the child
- Dialogue with the person that hurt you
- Going back to each scene in the Regression to emphasis that is not me and emphasizing why.
You, as the client, are involved with the therapist in uncovering the meaning and interpretation of events and then changing them. This leads to permanent powerful change.
