What Didi has been able to achieve through his life-changing transformation is outstanding and he now shares his experiences and the tools he’s learned with others.
In this incredibly raw interview, Didi puts it all into perspective when he says: “RTT is the single, quickest and most powerful protocol there is on the planet right now to regulate all emotional blockages and their aftermaths….
I literally save lives for a living and make the world a better, healthier and happier place, one mended soul at a time. I couldn't possibly think of anything better than that.”
Please can you briefly summarise your life before Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT™), what were your biggest challenges? How did this impact your life and what was it costing you?
I have spent 25+ years of my adult life being addicted to Class A drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, sex, porn, self-harm, anxiety, stress, insomnia, television, overthinking, insecurity, anger, reactivity, hatred, and jealousy towards happy and beautiful people... and I have been diagnosed and treated for suicidal manic depression.
I experienced homelessness and squatting in random places with drug addicts, sex workers, pimps, ex-convicts and strangers, on and off from the age of 12. I tried to kill myself many times as a teenager and young adult. I would regularly pass out from drugs and alcohol, not once but twice a day, every single day, for weeks on end until I ended up in comas. I was on a self-destruction mission. I was in such a constant raw state of pain, anger, and desolation.
Eventually, in 2008 and at the age of 38, a life event that I can only compare to the equivalent of surviving a plane crash changed my life. I have been given the unique opportunity to face my past and my demons. Confronting them in an incredibly long and difficult process freed me from them. I stopped all addictions. I went teetotal. I was happy and looking forward to the future for the first time in my life, and I decided to take care of my physical health as a priority.
I started a new career as a Strength and Conditioning coach to learn how to do that optimally and discovered the sport of powerlifting in the process. My powerlifting coach suggested I should register for a local competition for the experience. One thing led to another and I ended up being a British champion. For most of my life, I had the physical strength of Kurt Cobain and the mental and emotional stability of Amy Winehouse. However, somehow in 2013, I become the strongest man in the whole of Great Britain, in my category, in a sport that involves both physical and mental strength. I have competed again and ended in the top 3 three times.
The competition, the numbers, and the title are not important. What matters to me is how I managed to go from zombie to champion after a lifetime of depression, addiction and self-destruction. Because my outlook on life changed, all aspects of my life changed. I knew that if I could change, anyone could potentially change too. So I became obsessed with finding the best tools to help others experience the same plane crash survival impact and unlock the gates to their full potential. RTT found me and I now witness spectacular transformations on a weekly basis in my practice in London.
RTT is the set of keys I have been longing for, as they allow me to offer the same plane crash survival impact to my clients in one session. I have been offered the keys to fix my clients’ past, present, and future.
How did you discover RTT and why did you decide to do it? How is RTT different from other approaches you have tried?
Marisa Peer's energy and wisdom through her YouTube videos always made sense to me. I decided to invest my last savings and enroll in her course in London 2017 out of a strong gut feeling. My gut is always right and that occasion was no exception.
As an ex bipolar addict, for most of my adult life, I have tried everything in vain. RTT is different because IT WORKS. RTT is the single, quickest and most powerful protocol there is on the planet right now to regulate all emotional blockages and their aftermaths. I see it in my patients every day and that never ceases to amaze me.
What was your experience of training in RTT?
Although I was able to hypnotize my fellow students from day 1, no one seemed to be able to hypnotize me. I have spent so many years creating a fortress around my heart that I couldn't see or feel anything in hypnosis. 3 days before completion, Marisa Peer herself gave me a session, I had my breakthrough then and the rest is history.
The RTT Live course was the best investment I have ever made, at a professional and personal level. RTT elevated my career to the next league, and the mental clarity I have gained as a full-time therapist since 2017 expands my field of vision every day.
What did you most want to achieve from RTT?
I wanted to own an actual therapeutic protocol that I could use in conjunction with my mindset and mindfulness coaching career. I expected a torch to help me locate the exit from the tunnels of depression, anxiety, addiction, and self-sabotage. I ended up with Google Maps!!!
How has your life changed now as a result of RTT? How does this relate to what you most wanted?
There is no limit to growth in any aspect of our lives. RTT has granted me the maps and compasses to understand and navigate through the subconscious mind. I practice many of the RTT aspects on me regularly. As a result, the mental clarity and inner peace that I cherish and nurture every day allow me to experience life at a higher level. Those feelings of being high on life are only rivaled by the waves of gratitude I channel every time I witness a transformation with a patient.
What has been your biggest impact with RTT? What are you most proud of? Is there a client story that brings this to life?
I have been blessed with so many successes that I couldn't possibly pick just one story and I am always excited by the new cases ahead. In a nutshell, I literally save lives for a living and make the world a better, healthier and happier place, one mended soul at a time. I couldn't possibly think of anything better than that. I love my work. I love my life. I love all the people that come into my life.
Anything else you would like to share?
It is important to realize that RTT is only a tool, not a magic wand. A scalpel is only as good as the surgeon. A Stradivarius is only as good as the violinist. But if you feel that you can make a difference, as Dr. Wayne Dyer said once: “Don't die with the music still in you.”
