Thanks to TV and stage magicians, hypnosis has a reputation it could well do without. We’ve all seen people on stage with a hypnotist, seemingly under a spell. The reality is no one leaps about a stage like a monkey unless they want to – hypnosis doesn’t take away your will. Hypnosis is simply a way in, to accessing that 90 per cent of the mind that lies below the surface; the subconscious mind.
You see, your mind is very like an iceberg and within what lies below the water’s surface are all the key events, the memories that influence our behaviours. Like why we crave chocolate, or self-sabotage when we’re trying to lose weight.
I practice RTT, which is a stand-alone therapy using hypnosis as a way to communicate with the subconscious, so we get your whole mind on board with the changes you want to make.
Here’s a list of Frequently Asked Questions about hypnosis and RTT. If your question isn’t answered here, bob your query in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer it.
What is RTT?
Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) has been developed by internationally renowned celebrity therapist Marisa Peer. Having trained in hypnosis and hypnotherapy, during her 30-year career Marisa has developed her own approach which does what is says on the tin – it gets results, fast.
Why is RTT different?
RTT uses a powerful blend of hypnosis and hypnotherapy techniques with clients seeking freedom from one or more of a wide range of issues or conditions.
In RTT we aim to deliver positive, permanent change in a single 90-minute session, although certain issues can require up to three sessions.
What issues can you use RTT for?
There are a whole host of issues and conditions for which RTT gets amazing results. They include:
- Exam nerves
- Public Speaking
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is simply a tool we use to work with the subconscious mind. Imagine the mind is like an ice berg, the conscious mind is above the water line but the subconscious, the emotional mind, lies beneath the waterline, deep and unfathomable from the surface. Because the subconscious is the deep-seated, more instinctive and much larger part of the mind it over-rides the conscious mind all the time.
Will I be powerless under hypnosis?
Absolutely not. You are in complete control under hypnosis. If you want change, change will come but no one can make you do anything you don’t want to do in hypnosis.
Will I be asleep?
No, you will be awake and aware of what is happening.
What does hypnosis feel like?
We go in and out of trance states every day. Have you ever driven your car along a very familiar route and arrived home with little recollection of the journey? Hypnosis feels a lot like that. You are completely in control but your subconscious is awake while your conscious mind rests.
Who is Deana Morris?
Deana is an Advanced RTT Practitioner based in South Manchester who came to RTT after discovering its seemingly miraculous results for herself. Of course, RTT isn’t a miracle, but it gets results fast because it gets to the roots of the issue and untangles you from their grasp.
