RRT is an acronym for Rapid Resolution Therapy and is a technique used as a primary therapy or adjunct form of treatment. As a Certified RRT Practitioner, Renee offers this effective intervention to alleviate symptoms related to trauma as well as other distressing symptoms such as: Anxieties, fears, panic disorder, relationship issues and heartbreak, accidents, chronic pain, emotional/sexual/physical abuse, performance problems, self-defeating patterns, poor self-esteem, flashbacks, & body image issues.
Rapid Resolution Therapy® What is Rapid Resolution Therapy®? Rapid Resolution Therapy® is a revolutionary, holistic psychotherapeutic approach to healing and positive change. Rapid Resolution Therapy® eliminates emotional pain and destructive behavioral patterns and completely resolves the psychological and physiological effects of trauma. It is particularly effective in clearing anxiety, the negative effects of past trauma or grief. Unlike other approaches to trauma treatment which require the client to experience painful emotions while reliving the trauma, Rapid Resolution Therapy® clears the effects of trauma gently and painlessly. RRT was developed by Dr. Jon Connelly over his thirty years of treating clients with trauma. Renee is one of four Certified RRT Therapists in the St. Louis - Edwardsville area and has been practicing this technique exclusively for trauma treatment since 2012.
What is RRT & how does it work?
RRT is a really powerful yet gentle way to get your mind to make shifts quickly because we are working with the part of the mind that causes emotional responses. Other therapy methods just work at the level of your logical mind. As you have realized that the part of the mind that causes emotions does not respond to logic. With RRT we are simply communicating in a way that part of your brain learns and understands things. That part of your mind tends to respond better to imagery, sensory experiences, and certain ways of using language. Renee shows you how to influence that part of your mind to get more of the responses that you want and experience more peace.
What is meant by 'Rapid Resolution'?
RRT dramatically reduces treatment time because the work is done at such a deep level, involving both the conscious and subconscious parts of the mind. Rather than spending months or years in many hours of weekly talk-therapy sessions, people often find relief within their first session of RRT. Renee schedules her RRT sessions for 3-hours.
Why 3 hours? Won't I be exhausted? Is it that intense?
Well the great thing about RRT is that it is painless and you won’t be reliving any past events. The session is based on how long it takes us to get you feeling better. If you go to your dentist to get a crown or something, does the dentist say, ‘Well I’ll see what we can do in an hour, but after one hour, I’ll have to stop, and you’ll just have to come back each week for one hour until we get it done?’. Renee approaches the session on what it takes to get the problem taken care of, which may last up to 3 hours.
Does insurance cover this extended session?
Insurances require providers to give each client a mental health diagnosis, dictate the length of session time and may require some of your private information in order to pay for the services provided. Renee takes some insurance for traditional therapy sessions, click here to read more, but unfortunately, no insurance covers this extended session. The previous techniques used for trauma treatment required weekly sessions at 45 minutes each for at least one to three years. That's at least 52 co-pays, trips to the therapist's office and time off from work or other important tasks each year. RRT expedites the healing process and saves time and money.
After receiving RRT sessions, some clients find it helpful to return to Renee for follow-up appointments, which may be covered by insurance if you have mental health coverage. When someone is finally emotionally free from the painful traumatic memory, they find a new outlook on daily life and this is quite exciting! Clients typically meet with Renee to process this new level of awareness because their family and friends are supportive yet they just can't get the whole picture - understandably so - their experiences are different. Many clients requests to return for continued clinical hypnosis sessions because of the significant stress reduction and mental clarity these sessions provide. The longer session time for hypnosis is recommended. RRT follow-up sessions are either 90 minutes or 45 minutes and typically meet once every couple of weeks for 2-3 times then move to monthly for a few months.
What is the cost of Rapid Resolution Therapy®?
For RRT sessions, Renee charges a per session versus per hourly fee. This is very similar your dentist or chiropractor who charges per treatment and adjustment. Other clinical professionals you work with, work with you until the issue is resolved, versus taking an hour each week till the issue is fully resolved. In doing counseling this way it reduces your time away - from work and your personal life.
Initial RRT Session: Up to 3 Hours $450
Follow-up RRT Sessions: 90 Minutes - $180 or 45 Minutes $100
