Frequently asked questions
What is RTT?
Rapid Transformational Therapy is powerful new form of hypnotherapy. Each session lasts between 90 and 120 minutes. After a detailed intake discussion, whilst under hypnosis, I work with my clients to identify the root cause of their presenting issue. Through careful integration of various therapy techniques, such as NLP and CBT, we then intervene and disrupt any limiting beliefs, positively reframe them accordingly to empower the transformation, before finishing by recording a live audio piece (10 - 15 minute whilst under hypnosis) with positive, empowering suggestions to cement the change. The client must commit to listening to this for a minimum of 21 days after the session.
If you need help with anxiety, stress or any other life-turbulence, RTT can resolve it quickly and permanently.

What's the sciene behind RTT?
At its core, Rapid Transformational Therapy is a form of neuroscience. It alters the brain’s neurons through repetitive words, commands and actions. It's a practical rather than medical form of neuroscience, as anything done with repetition creates a pattern - or neural network - in the brain.
RTT disrupts and replaces negative networks with healthy ones, making it a powerful force for overcoming a wide range of emotional, mental or physical issues that have been getting in your way of what you what.
Rapid Transformational Therapy uses hypnosis at its core. The form of relaxation experienced under hypnosis is essentially a quieting of the nervous system. It induces a very relaxed state of mind, a space for communication between the conscious and unconscious minds, as well as a heightened state of suggestibility. Research proves that during hypnosis, we experience far more of our brain’s tremendous ability, as compared to what is usually blocked by left brains - or analytical brains - dominance.
The science behind hypnosis is hugely impressive and growing. Public bodies such as the National Health Service here in the UK, have incorporated hypnotherapy into their portfolio of treatments, particularly around anxiety, childbirth and depression.
How does it work in one session?
Hypnosis allows us direct access to the 'reasons' we do what we do & react the way we react etc. Saving you hours, even years in talk therapy, searching for the source. The source of our issues are usually based on an age-appropriate understanding. When you're able to observe yourself & these understandings from a non judgemental perspective it's relatively easy to let them go & move onto rewiring new beliefs that are more beneficial and supportive of what you want.
Sometimes it can take more than one session per issue but as a rule most issues only take one session. I don't want to waste my time or yours which is why I treat this way. Don't worry, if you wish to see me again we all have many more than one issue to address in life.
Does RTT and hypnotherapy work over skype or zoom?
Absolutely. Personally, I prefer to work face to face, but RTT video sessions are equally effective as long as the client is in a safe environment, and will not be disturbed.
Is it suitable for all ages?
In principal, yes over the age 5. We use different techniques depending on the age of the client. But generally RTT is available and has the seem benefit to people of all ages.
What does hypnosis feel like?
During your session, you will feel, relaxed & comfortable. Hypnosis is a natural state that you experience in your day to day life so it won't feel unfamiliar.
Everyone is different & depending on how deeply you work, you might leave my clinic bouncing out of your skin with excitement or you may feel a sense of reflection, or wonder. You may continue to discover even more about yourself & your programming, post session. Whether you feel excited or reflective, you will always leave my clinic with a sense of understanding, freedom & empowerment.
Will I be in control?
100%. You are in charge. You cannot be made to do anything you don't want to do, and you cannot be taken into hypnosis against your will. It is your experience, I simply facilitate you.
What if I can't be hypnotised?
You can. Everyone can. As long as you wish to enter hypnosis, you will. It's an easy, enjoyable and thoroughly relaxing process.
Is your coaching work 'coaching' or 'mentoring'?
There's a big difference. When we first meet, I will Coach. As a transformation coach, my job is to encourage you to have a very deep conversation with yourself. Helping you understand and identify what you need to change or achieve; how you want our work to positively affect your life, and the appropriate tools and techniques we'll use to get there.
Following this, if appropriate, I will add an element of Mentoring into the process. This means I will draw on my experience and knowledge to support and teach you along the way, towards achieving what you want to achieve.
How long is a coaching session?
Technically 60 - 90 minutes, however depending on our schedules they can go longer. But our ongoing relationship isn't defined to our sessions. During our discovery session we will define the boundaries that we are both comfortable with, and agree how and when we communicate outside of session time. I will also give you access to a vast collection of support material that I have curated over the years, and frequently check-in with tips and advice.
Where are sessions held and how much do you charge?
I prefer to do them wherever you feel most comfortable, as long as that's practical. If have to travel and incur costs then naturally I would expect those to be repaid in kind.
I don't typically charge by the session. I'm a big believe in the value of our work together, not just the time. Once we've had our first call I'll recommend an initial coaching period, program and fee for you to review.
What coaching methods do you use?
There's a bit of zeitgeist around Transformation right now. So, here's how I bring transformation into my work.
The author Alain De Botton once suggested; “Calm is one of the most distinctive longings of the modern age.” I couldn't agree more.
I also believe that Calm is becoming increasingly foundational to our emotional, mental and physical wellness. I've learnt how to use calm to transform more than my fair share of white-knuckle life turbulence. Truth be told, calm probably saved my life in 2014. It has definitely kept me steady, happy and sane ever since!
So rather suitably, my transformation coaching strategy follows a self-perpetuating model entitled I've developed, entitled C.A.L.M. Through this program I help my clients use calm to first cope with, then resolve their turbulence in way that transforms whatever parts of their lives they want to transform.
C.A.L.M stands for:
Clarity: We can't heal, fix and leave a place we've never been. Neither can we reach for a place without knowing and believing we can get there. Clarity is truth, relief, focus and direction. Together, these create a powerful sense of calm to any issue.
Arrangement: Our inner-world creates our outer-world which influences our inner-world. Only through conscious re-arrangement of both, to create our optimal spaces can we break the cycle, and give ourselves the best possible chance of transformation.
Leadership: Unless we choose to become monks, or go hide in a cave, the world will continue to show-up, right in front of us. Turbulence will hit in both expected and unexpected ways. Self-leadership, empowered with clarity, a well arranged external space and an ongoing commitment to our a healthy inner-space, will build phenomenal capability to cope, resolve and transform that turbulence in a way that makes us better.
Momentum: Momentum is recognition of growth, and learning to celebrate both small and big wins across the journey. Building a habit of measuring and acknowledging our self-worth, and 'relearning' that we are all, more than good enough.
