5 RTT Therapy Criticisms: What You Need to Know about Rapid Transformational Therapy

Updated: Jul 6

Thousands of people are experiencing the transformational benefits of RTT hypnotherapy first-hand as it continues to grow in popularity. RTT, or Rapid Transformational Therapy, can be effectively used to help people struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, low self-esteem and even relationship issues. While there is some criticism surrounding RTT, much of it is due to a lack of awareness and education about what is RTT and hypnotherapy in general.

Many critics believe RTT therapy is nonsense. For some people, the very idea of hypnosis brings stereotypical images of people on stage quacking like a duck or doing some other crazy thing against their will.

In reality, these stereotypes and misconceptions about hypnotherapy couldn’t be further from the truth. The benefits of hypnotherapy have been used to help treat people with issues from trauma and depression to anxiety and low self-confidence for hundreds of years. Much of the criticism surrounding RTT is due to myths, misconceptions, and concerns about the effectiveness and credibility of rapid transformational therapy.

I’ve been using hypnotherapy in my coaching practice for nearly 20 years and rapid transformational therapy specifically for over 6 years.

RTT Hypnotherapy Criticism #1: RTT is a quick fix or shortcut without rapid and permanent results

This misconception might be due to the belief as a society that traditional talk therapy is the only way to effectively overcome issues like anxiety, stress, depression, and relationship issues, and that it must be a long, ongoing process. While traditional talk therapy is a solution for many people, it is not the answer for everyone, every time.

In fact, 75% of Coach Monique’s clients have tried traditional therapy before coming to her, but did not get the results they needed. For many, coaching felt like their “last resort” because nothing else they tried worked. With traditional talk therapy, one must tell their story session after session, in hopes that the source of the issue might eventually be found. Some might never discover why they are feeling and behaving in the negative ways that they are and certainly haven’t gotten any meaningful tools to help them heal and move forward in their lives.

Because of its ability to access the subconscious and unconscious mind, RTT therapy provides direct access to the information required to understand what is driving a behavior and/or creating the suffering. A highly skilled RTT therapist will help you get to the root cause of the behavior or suffering, through hypnosis and making corrections at the source. The need for problem behaviors slip away and you’re able to heal and experience permanent change.

Hypnotherapy may sound intimidating to some, but hypnosis is simply a deep relaxation, and you will be aware and in complete control throughout the session. You will simply work with a RTT Therapist, such as Coach Monique, to understand, feel, and heal the blocks which prevent you from living the life you desire. This is not a quick fix- the insight may be instant, but the changes it enables are permanent. What can sometimes take years of traditional talk therapy to accomplish can often be accomplished in months or in some cases, weeks.

RTT Hypnotherapy Criticism #2: Inexperienced people can become RTT practitioners

Because nearly anyone, regardless of background or professional experience, can become a RTT practitioner through online courses, RTT has faced a lot of criticism from psychologists, therapists, etc. While it is true that there are now thousands of RTT practitioners, some with little or no experience in the fields of personal and professional development, you can find the right RTT Therapist for you by knowing what to look for in your research.

There is a big difference between a RTT practitioner and a RTT Therapist. The certification for RTT Therapists is a much more rigorous process that requires more education and training hours. The standards for testing and certification are higher as well. A practitioner can begin working as soon as the course is completed while a RTT Therapist must continue hands-on training.
