Marisa and Faye interviewed Michelle live on Ask Marisa Anything to hear her experiences of RTT training in Australia and the real results and freedom it has brought her and her family…
Michelle, could you just explain to everyone how you discovered RTT?
I came across RTT about two and a half to three years ago. My son had anxiety. All of a sudden out of nowhere, he started to feel very anxious about everything, including piano performance and drama, he couldn’t get on stage anymore. It just seemed to be impacting every part of his life.
I took him for some psychotherapy sessions. However, unfortunately, they weren’t doing him any good at all. So I came home and did my research online to see what I could find and I came across Marisa Peer.
I consumed everything I could about RTT and then I looked for an RTT therapist in Sydney and found one, all within 10 days, which was unbelievable. My son had an RTT session and almost immediately after the session, there was just a huge change in him. You could see the physical difference as he came out of the therapist’s office. That was pretty profound. He stepped back from feeling anxious almost immediately and listened to the recording for the three weeks and we never looked back after that. He recovered.
What did you most want to achieve from training in RTT?
At the time I had that experience with my son, I was already coaching and I really felt that there was something missing in me really getting to the next level of success for my clients. I was so amazed by RTT that I continued to consume a lot of Marisa’s online work, then I signed up for the RTT program. The training was very different from anything I’d ever done before. I wanted to be able to reach my clients and help them achieve the transformation they were looking for in their lives. RTT without a doubt was the therapy that could do so.
How would you describe your experience training with Marisa and the team?
For me, I found it to be a very complete experience. From the online training, I jumped in right away as soon as I had joined the online portal and went through every module rigorously. By the time I got to the live training, I felt that I was pretty confident in understanding all aspects of RTT. So the live training was a wonderful experience to really bring everything together for me.
What’s your life like now as an RTT therapist?
I graduated on the 3rd December last year and by the 1st January, I’d already set an intention in my mind to start treating clients almost exclusively with RTT. Within six months, I’d already opened up a clinic and my own office in Sydney, which is absolutely amazing. Every day is just an incredible gift of treating new clients and having new challenges with new clients, it’s just phenomenal.
What would you say to other people who are thinking of training in RTT?
I think there’s a couple of things that you need to take into consideration. If you’re at the point in your life where you’re ready for a change – a change in career or for a new purpose in life – this is perfect. If you want some clear direction with where work is going to take you, if you want financial freedom, the great thing about RTT is that you can do it either in person or online, anywhere around the world.
The main thing RTT has given me is freedom. Freedom to decide when I work, how many hours I work, what days I work. RTT gives you not just financial freedom, but also the opportunity to be locally free as well, where you can access this on a laptop or face to face, no matter where you are around the world. So it’s been fabulous in that respect for me.
Was it worth what you invested in your training?
It was absolutely worth every single penny because I’ve not just made my investment back, I’ve set myself up for what I consider to be the rest of my life, doing this therapy. I’m in my 50s now, but, you know what? This has given me a new lease of life. I feel absolutely amazing about this work. It just means everything to me.
Do you think you’ll do it for the rest of your life?
I will. There’s absolutely no doubt about it. I’m just getting better and better at it, as well. I have to say, as soon as I’d finished the training with Marisa, I had listened to your Being the Best Therapist recording throughout the month of December, and come the 1st of January, I was absolutely, totally believing I was going to be a fabulous therapist. Do you know what? I am. I’m so thrilled. I’m so delighted I’ve done it, it’s just been amazing.
Thank you, Michelle, it’s great to hear your experience and how easily you recouped your investment and the freedom RTT has given you and your family. Thank you for sharing.
