Achieving sustainable weight loss with RTT

In the quest for effective and lasting weight loss, many have tried various diets, exercise routines, and supplements with varying degrees of success. But what if the key to sustainable weight loss lies not in a specific diet or in applying willpower but in changing how you think about food?


Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) offers a unique approach by addressing the psychological and emotional factors that often underpin weight gain and hinder weight loss efforts.

Understanding Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT)

RTT is a therapeutic approach developed by renowned therapist Marisa Peer that was specifically designed to treat eating disorders and unhealthy relationships with food. Combining principles from hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), RTT aims to achieve rapid and lasting transformation.

The therapy works by accessing the subconscious mind to uncover and reframe limiting beliefs, past associations, and negative patterns that affect one’s behaviour and emotional well-being.

How RTT addresses the root causes of weight gain

Identifying emotional triggers

Many individuals struggle with emotional eating, using food as a coping mechanism for stress, anxiety, sadness, or boredom. RTT helps identify these emotional triggers by accessing the subconscious mind, where these patterns are often deeply ingrained. Individuals can address the root cause of their emotional eating habits by bringing these issues to the surface.

Rewiring limiting beliefs

Often, people develop limiting beliefs about their bodies, self-worth, and capabilities related to weight loss. Beliefs such as "I can't lose weight" or "I'm destined to be overweight" can sabotage efforts. RTT works to rewire these limiting beliefs, replacing them with empowering ones, supporting a healthier self-image and a positive weight-loss mindset.

Healing past trauma

Past traumas, whether related to body image, bullying, or other emotional wounds, can significantly impact one’s relationship with food and self-care. RTT provides a safe space to heal these traumas, allowing individuals to release the emotional weight that often manifests as physical weight.

Enhancing motivation and self-discipline

The subconscious mind plays a crucial role in motivation and self-discipline. RTT sessions can instil new, positive thoughts that enhance motivation, increase self-discipline, and foster a more proactive approach to weight loss. For example, people can be made to feel indifferent to or even dislike unhealthy foods, while learning to love healthy foods.

Creating a new self-image

A key aspect of lasting weight loss is the ability to envision oneself in a healthier, fitter body. RTT helps individuals create a vivid, compelling image of their ideal self, reinforcing the belief that achieving this goal is possible and desirable. RTT helps individuals to feel a stronger desire to look and feel this way than the desire to eat sugary or other unhealthy foods.

The RTT weight loss process

1. Initial consultation or discovery call

The process begins with an in-depth consultation where the therapist and client discuss the client’s weight loss goals, challenges, and history. This helps tailor the RTT session to the individual’s specific needs. It is important to recognise that everyone is an individual and the therapy must reflect this to get the best results.

2. RTT session

During the two-hour RTT session, the therapist guides the client into a relaxed, hypnotic state. In this state, the therapist can access the subconscious mind to identify and address the root causes of weight gain. The session involves regression techniques, positive suggestions, and visualisation to reframe negative patterns and beliefs.

3. Listening to a bespoke hypnosis recording

After the session, the therapist provides the client with a personalised recording. This recording contains positive affirmations and suggestions that reinforce the session’s work. Listening to this recording daily helps solidify the new, positive beliefs and behaviours. This recording is totally bespoke for the client and what they need to hear and embed.

4. Follow-up support and coaching

My approach to RTT also includes follow-up support to monitor progress, address any emerging issues, and provide additional guidance as needed. This ongoing support ensures that the changes made during the session are integrated into daily life and will 'stick'.

Success stories 

Hypnosis is widely used to help with weight loss. RTT takes hypnotherapy several steps further, by dealing with the root cause and ensuring the follow-up and personalised support people need is provided.

Many people experience a rapid and significant shift in how they think about food. They often lose cravings for unhealthy food and no longer feel that they need to turn to food for comfort. Because RTT seeks to deal with the root cause and not just treat symptoms, many people also experience wider benefits than weight loss. They often feel less anxious, have higher self-esteem and develop greater self-control in other areas of their lives.

Rapid Transformational Therapy offers a holistic and innovative approach to weight loss by addressing the psychological and emotional factors that traditional methods often overlook. By transforming the mind, RTT helps pave the way for sustainable and effective weight loss, empowering individuals to achieve their goals and maintain a healthier lifestyle. If you’re struggling with weight loss and seeking a deeper, more transformative solution, RTT might be the key to unlocking your weight loss potential.
