RTT and Traditional Therapy

Traditional therapy has been a popular approach for addressing psychological issues. However, the emergence of new therapies such as Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) has provided an alternative that aims to achieve faster and more long-lasting results. Understanding the differences between these two approaches can help individuals choose the therapy that will be most effective for their unique needs.

Traditional therapy typically involves talking to a therapist over a period of weeks, months, or even years. Then, the therapist helps the client explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to gain insight into their issues and develop coping strategies to manage them. Traditional therapy can involve different approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and humanistic therapy.

On the other hand, RTT is a form of therapy that aims to identify and address the root cause of a person’s issue or challenge in just one to three sessions. RTT uses a combination of hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques to help the client access their subconscious mind and identify the limiting beliefs or patterns that are holding them back. RTT is focused on creating lasting change and transformation rather than just symptom management.

The key differences between the two:

Duration of Therapy

RTT is designed to be a brief therapy, usually lasting between 1-3 sessions, while traditional therapy can last for months or even years.


RTT is focused on addressing the root cause of a specific issue, Whereas, traditional therapy on may address a range of issues over an extended period of time.

Techniques Used

RTT uses a combination of hypnotherapy, NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques. This helps clients create new patterns of behavior and thought. Traditional therapy may use various therapeutic techniques, such as talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, or other modalities.

Level of Involvement

In RTT, the therapist takes an active role in guiding the client through the hypnotherapy process. But in traditional therapy is typically more client-led, with the therapist acting as a facilitator.


Due to its shorter duration, RTT is often less expensive than traditional therapy.

It’s worth noting that both RTT and traditional therapy can be effective in helping people overcome emotional and psychological issues.

In summary, traditional therapy can be helpful for gaining insight and developing coping strategies over time. Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT), however, offers a faster and more transformative approach. It identifies and addresses the root cause of issues in just one to three sessions. It also creates lasting change and provides individuals with the tools they need to move forward. While both approaches have their benefits, those seeking faster and more transformative results may find that RTT is the better choice for them. Ultimately, the choice between traditional therapy and RTT will depend on individual needs and preferences.
