She’s also an international best-selling author of multiple books, motivational speaker, personal development expert and leading celebrity therapist. She’s worked with people around the world and most of them have a story they tell themselves about not being “enough.” Her newest book puts the focus squarely on the personal narrative you’re clinging to: “Tell Yourself A Better Lie: Use The Power Of Rapid Transformational Therapy To Edit Your Story And Rewrite Your Life.”
“After 30 years of private practice, I created Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) because it was clear to me that so much of the pain and suffering we see in the world comes down to the fundamental stories we tell ourselves and how often those stories are untrue or outright lies,” she explains. RTT has roots in hypnosis.
Marisa helps people pinpoint the reasons behind why people want what they want, so they can actualize a meaningful life for themselves. She uses a solution-oriented technique that can make you mentally stronger, more confident and even more loving towards yourself.
“He who hesitates is lost,” she says. “While you’re waiting to write your book or start your company, someone else is going to come along and write that book and start that company. So, time is the one thing we don’t have access of. And so, I think they’ll always be people who like that long method [of traditional talk therapy] and a lot of people who don’t like it. And I think we can definitely accommodate both.”
It’s time to start telling yourself the truth about who you are. “Our greatest pain is caused by the lies we tell ourselves,” Marisa says. She offers candid advice on how to help you recognize the harmful story you tell yourself and how to change it to a better one.
