For example, an individual may have a subconscious belief that they are not worthy of love or acceptance, which leads to their fear of rejection. Through RTT, the therapist guides the individual to reprogram this negative belief and replace it with a positive belief, such as “I am worthy of love and acceptance, and rejection does not define my worth.”
In addition, RTT also promotes self-confidence and assertiveness. Therefore, by helping individuals to recognize their strengths and abilities, RTT can help to embrace a more positive self-image and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.
