What physical symptoms can be treated with RPT?
RPT is best described as a technique for healing trauma and permanently changing emotional states. There are physical symptoms or diseases processes that are largely psychosomatic or otherwise caused by or related to emotional states. Examples include headaches, migraines, back, neck and shoulder pain, a wide range of muscular-skeletal problems, and some auto-immune problems. That is not a complete list, just an indication. In our experience, if an emotional state or trauma was a trigger for the disease process then a change in that state can often lead to a reversal of the process.
Quite clearly not all physical problems are caused by emotional states. RPT can still help in these cases by changing the client’s emotional outlook and removing secondary gains or self-sabotage behaviour. RPT can help a client undergoing chemotherapy, surgery or other medical procedures to have a positive outlook and maximise the chances of success of their medical treatment.
What problems cannot be treated with RPT?
RPT is suitable for treating a wide range of emotional problems and some physical problems. In broad and non-scientific terms, RPT helps basically “normal” people to become extraordinary people. In other words, we can help 90-95% of humanity to improve their emotional states.
RPT is not effective for people with mental illness. Most of our trainers are not medical specialists. We lack the specialist skills and training for treating people with mental illness such as schizophrenia, manic depression or serious personality disorders. If you have a serious mental disorder you should not book into a RPT seminar or consultation. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your personal situation or diagnosis if you are concerned whether RPT is the right tool for you.
What is the success rate for RPT?
We estimate the success rate of RPT to be above 95%. This is based on controlled trials with motivated clients who were not paying money for the sessions.
The real world results can vary greatly. For example, a given problem might require three RPT session in order to get excellent results. However, the client might decide after one or two sessions to discontinue the treatment. This makes it very hard to assess the real world success of RPT. We are currently working to design independent research tests to better estimate the real word success rate.
If you are booking a RPT consultation, we encourage you to ask your practitioner how many sessions they estimate will be required. We then ask you to commit upfront to participating in that many sessions. For example, if the practitioner estimates you will need five sessions to get excellent results, please do not quit the process or form a negative view if you did not get the desired results in one or two sessions. Follow the recommended guidelines and will will get you as close to the 95% success rate as possible.
Is RPT a form of hypnosis? Will you hypnotise me?
RPT is not a form of hypnosis. You will not be in an altered state at any time during the RPT session.
How can I learn the RPT technique?
RPT is taught in a workshop (seminar) format by qualified RPT instructors. It is not possible or safe to learn RPT during a private consultation where you are the client.
What is taught on the Level 1 RPT course?
All of the core RPT tools or techniques are taught on Level 1. This includes:
the acknowledgment process (the tool we use to heal trauma);
the process for developing intuition and connection with a client;
the coherence process for clearing the mind and setting clear intentions;
the de-armoring process for removing self-sabotage and secondary gain;
the Triune Brain Method – a process for identifying the instincts holding a trauma in place; and
the time line process for finding the initial starting point or cause of the client’s symptoms.
The Level 1 course is extensive and complete – much more so than the beginner or Level 1 course of any other technique. After the Level 1 course you are able to practice the technique and achieve life changing results.
The Level 1 course does not qualify someone to use RPT as a therapist, nor does it cover the treatment of physical problems, or complex emotional problems such as co-dependent relationships, identity crises, ego and control issues, and other themes which are taught on the Level 2 and 3 courses.
The Level 2 and Level 3 courses are very different to Level 1, focusing much more on applications of the technique and different strategies for personal development and best-practice therapy.
What RPT courses are available?
We have four levels to RPT, plus a teacher training course and occasional specialist applications such as the Manifesting and Abundance Course. The four levels are each very different. Here is a simple overview:
Level 1 teaches the core technique and basic structure. Most importantly it’s the de-armoring process and extended Triune Brain Method for clearing trauma.
Level 2 teaches a new application of the technique known as Re-Conception. It’s way to rewrite the story of who you are and where you come from. Then a new approach to therapy known as the Key Developmental Event (KDE) process is explained. It’s almost the reverse of the usual therapy model. Usually you start with a symptom and find the cause. With the KDE process you start with the known causes and find the beginning. It works because there are 10 key trigger points in your time line called developmental events which are responsible for a wide range of symptoms. Clearing these points will make a massive difference in your life and solve a wide range of problems. Finally the level 2 course teaches an application of the Level 1 technique known as the Emergence of the Soul. This exercise helps to stabilise the ego and release control issues.
The Level 3 course is our most important course. On this course you learn the “meta-structure” of RPT. This is the way to construct a session in order to heal multiple problems. For example, a person may have physical symptoms, emotional problems and spiritual issues which all interact with each other. Most therapists cannot treat such problems because each session just treats a tiny piece of the problem. On RPT 3 you learn to treat the entire client, to resolve complex problems in simple ways, achieving extra-ordinary results. This course is required in order to use RPT as a practitioner.
The Level 4 course is an extension for advanced practitioners. It contains advanced processes for specialist situations (most notably the Tribal Block process) as well as a different way to apply RPT, using intuition and changes in the practitioner’s emotional state rather than words and techniques.
Is it necessary to take all the levels of RPT?
No, you only need to take the levels relevant to you. That said, it is highly recommended to take Level 1 and 2 together (they are normally taught and offered as a package). It is ideal to take them in one 6-7 day block, or over consecutive weekends. After taking levels 1 and 2 you will have the complete picture of the RPT technique. RPT 3 is highly recommended for those wanting to work as practitioners or for personal development purposes. It is the application of the techniques taught in levels 1 and 2.
Does the course qualify me as a practitioner of RPT?
Only RPT 3 graduates can use RPT as a Practitioner, although if you are a Psychotherapist you can use RPT in your Practice after RPT2, and if you practice other alternative therapies you can qualify as an RPT Level 1 & 2 Practitioner after RPT2
What sort of people take RPT courses?
In general, about 50-60% of students on a RPT course are therapists (psychologists, NLP coaches and a mix of other therapies). The remaining 40-50% are there for personal development or because of a desire to become a therapist.
