Therapeutic Modalities

What is RTT?

Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is a hybrid form of therapy developed by world renowned therapist Marisa Peer.


RTT embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnosis and hypnotherapy that are known to produce a transformative effect on clients. RTT goes beyond, diagnosing what works with clients to build a new therapeutic approach. Unlike traditional hypnotherapy, RTT does not rely solely on positive reinforcement. Too often this is the sole focus for hypnotherapists.

While using correct, up-to-date, and relevant language when talking to yourself is certainly a part of any transformation, it serves as more of a reinforcement of breakthroughs, rather than the catalyst of them. RTT therapists are able to reach breakthroughs via hypnosis that would not be possible if they were simply trying to reach their subconscious mind via altered language and self-talk. RTT is equipped with an array of techniques and tools that are crucial, not just in teaching you how to communicate with your subconscious mind, but also directly accessing and fixing whatever blockages may be there.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a complementary technique that utilizes hypnosis to aid in the treatment of specific symptoms or health conditions. Hypnotherapy works by inducing a hypnotic state marked by waking awareness that allows people to experience detached external attention and to focus on inner experiences.

It is sometimes used as part of a treatment plan for phobias and other anxiety disorders. It is also sometimes used for pain management, weight loss, addictions, and a variety of other applications.

Formal explorations in the therapeutic uses for hypnosis began in the late 1700s but did not gain scientific credibility until much more recently. Modern researchers have further explored how hypnosis can be used, which conditions it can treat, and how effective it may be compared to other treatments.

What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy focused on altering your mindset. Its aim is to confront negative thoughts and behaviour patterns by teaching you practical coping strategies.

These techniques improve your state of mind and give you the power to take control of your illness to get your life back on track. While it’s commonly used to treat anxiety or depression, CBT benefits other physical and mental conditions, too.

CBT is a combination of two therapies: cognitive and behavioural, which examine your thoughts and actions. Together, they provide an optimal solution for people suffering from mental health problems. And patients who stay with the programme are often rewarded with improved mental health and coping mechanisms.

What is NLP?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a pseudoscientific approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States, in the 1970s.

NLP involves analysing strategies used by successful individuals and applying them to reach a personal goal. It relates thoughts, language, and patterns of behaviour learned through experience to specific outcomes.

Proponents of NLP assume all human action is positive. Therefore, if a plan fails or the unexpected happens, the experience is neither good nor bad—it simply presents more useful information.

Modelling, action, and effective communication are key elements of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The belief is that if an individual can understand how another person accomplishes a task, the process may be copied and communicated to others so they too can accomplish the task.

What is Talking Therapy?

Talking therapies are treatments which involve talking to a qualified therapist about your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. There are many different types of talking therapy, but they all aim to:

Give you a safe time and place to talk to someone who won't judge you
Help you make sense of things and understand yourself better
Help you resolve complicated feelings, or find ways to live with them
Help you recognise unhelpful patterns in the way you think or act, and find ways to change them (if you want to).

Talking Therapy can help you manage and cope with:

Difficult life events, such as bereavement (losing someone close to you), or losing your job.
Relationship problems.
Upsetting or traumatic experiences, whether it's something recent or something that happened a long time ago.
Difficult emotions, such as grief, guilt, sadness, confusion, anger and low self-esteem.
Depression and anxiety.
Other mental health problems. Talking therapies can help with a range of diagnoses, and specific talking treatments have been developed for some mental health problems.
Long-term physical health problems.

Some people think that therapy is an extreme option, and that unless things get really bad you should try to manage on your own. But this isn't true. It's ok to try therapy at any point in your life, whatever your background.

In fact getting support from a therapist when you're not at crisis point can be really helpful – it might feel easier to reflect on what's going on, and could help you keep things from getting worse.
