More about your RTT Experience
What is Hypnosis?
You likely have some preconceived notion of what hypnotherapy is…something perhaps performed on a stage in-front of a laughing audience. This is not hypnosis. It is not an act. It is an awakening of your subconscious mind. Tapping into the subconscious for most people is like getting the keys to the real and unique you – where you uncover thoughts and beliefs you have no idea were even there. It is your minds’ centre for imagination, creativity, and emotion, but most importantly, it is the powerhouse of your brain. That is because emotion always wins over the logical, conscious part of your brain. This is why in the case of a height phobia for example, you can tell yourself over and over “I will not die if climb that ladder” but you still cannot climb that ladder. To have will is not enough. In our conscious mind we can will a lot of things, but change only happens when your conscious mind listens to your subconscious mind. Going under hypnosis allows you to become suggestible and receptive to the words you want to hear. For example, “Heights will not stop me from doing the things I love” “Food is not going to control me, my life, my happiness” “Speaking in public is fun” “I will rock this exam because I am smart”.
What does hypnosis feel like?
You have already felt hypnosis if you remember yourself ‘drifting off’ or ‘daydreaming’. Another good example is remembering those days when you drove on a familiar route, conscious of the sounds and images around you, but then finding yourself on your driveway, not really remembering how you got there. In the therapy room, we will deliberately bring you to those states of heightened self-awareness, while putting your nervous system to sleep in a very systematic way. You will be in an extremely relaxed state. This is where we can tap into the subconscious system so you communicate issue new suggestions. These suggestions are tailored for you and your needs, and as your therapist, I will augment the process in a way that these new suggestions will now be a part of you, forever.
Will I be asleep?
Your eyes will be closed, but no, you are awake and alert. You will be aware of the sounds around you and all that is happening throughout the session. You cannot do anything against your will.
What will I feel like when it is over?
After hypnosis most people feel light, free, fulfilled and happy. Only a few feel initially disturbed, and only later does joy enter.
What if I can’t be hypnotized?
You can and will be able to be hypnotized. If you are willing to enter a state of hypnosis, you will. It’s an easy, enjoyable and thoroughly relaxing process.
Is it safe for children?
Yes, children love it. Their minds are still in an incredibly suggestive, pliable and receptive state. They do wonderful under hypnosis. The process is not as intricate (2-10 years) but very successful.
Still need more information?
If now curious, this is what you do...
Now that you familiarized yourself more about RTT and feel curious enough to know more about it, then we can do one of two things
- Book a phone consultation with me for 15-20 minute chat to learn more about RTT and answer questions I have not answered in the FAQ on my website. I like to keep this time centred more on your specific issues, rather than information on the session itself, therefore do not skip the FAQ page!
- Book an appointment to see me (regular 50 minute session). This session is considered a fee for service. Note: you may have already done this and that is why you are reading this!
If you decide to book your Rapid Transformational Therapy session it looks like this:
- We do the RTT session and it lasts for 2 hours. Remember you leave the session with a recording (15 min long that can be played on your phone), which allows this transformation to be ongoing and successful.
- I am then committed to send you an email each morning thereafter with helpful tips, research, and quotes (it might take 30 seconds for you to read but it has a profound affect) which will again, keep you accountable and stay on track towards your new state of mind.
- A post RTT session of 50-minute therapy occurs ideally 7-10 days after.
- Then nothing the following week so you can process/practice.
- Then we have one more 50-minute follow-up session.
It may seem a lot or little to you, depending how familiar you are with therapy. However, many clients go for a year or more of therapy, and actually move very little ahead!! This is very effective.
Let me know if you want me to schedule that first phone call (meet and greet) with you. There is no charge.
Some additional resources to help you in your choice to move ahead.

Luella is a phenomenal therapist. She is very compassionate, patient, and knowledgable. Her service is not just about business, but she truly goes the extra mile to make clients feel like family. Unlike some other therapists, you never feel like you’re “on the clock” with Luella. She takes the time to make sure that we get all the help we need in each meeting. The environment that she provides for appointments is calming, comfortable, and inspiring. Since she has started seeing my daughter, I have noticed a significant, positive change in her demeanour and outlook on life. I would highly recommend Luella to anyone seeking counselling.
My experience with RRT and hypnotherapy with Dr. Jonk has given me so much more than I thought. While the intent was to find help with weight loss, I’ve gained tools and insight that have brought improvements to other aspects in my life! I have the awareness, strength, determination and will to now control behaviours and beliefs that for years I let control me and hold me back. Post therapy sessions, I feel a change in my level of inner peace, a comfort in my own body, and the strength to strive for all that I CAN be! Dr. Jonk is down-to-earth and easy to communicate with – never any awkward “counselor moments”. She is motivating and her actions show she truly cares about your well-being well after you leave her office. I highly recommend this therapy with Dr. Jonk.
In my experience, Hypnotherapy can help resolve blockages. I had carried anxiety throughout my life, yet only now do I have full insight into it. Hypnotherapy made the difference, and very clearly, directly and easily revealed the truth of my situation, which allowed for change and a much higher level of energy. The change has been remarkable.
This was such a powerful experience. I was able to access and I think now let go of long-forgotten but troubling memories that have been undermining many of my lifelong decisions and choices. It feels like an internal cleanse that has somehow cleared out years of calcified emotion in a single cycle
