Clinical Hypnotherapist and Advanced Rapid Transformational Therapist, Sarah Kelt, is on a mission to help people break free from addiction, particularly alcohol dependency. In an exclusive interview with WOMAN magazine, she opens up about her personal journey, the inspiration behind her ground breaking program, “Stop Drinking Fast,” and how she empowers individuals to regain control of their lives.
Sarah's own Journey with Mental Health
Perhaps being an investment banker working in the high-pressure environments of London and Dubai would not be the usual road to being a clinical therapist but Sarah Kelt’s lived experience managing chronic anxiety and witnessing alcohol dependency has given her a deep understanding on addiction, enabling her to build a hugely successful practice helping others. Sarah’s path into the world of hypnotherapy and transformational therapy began with her own personal struggles. Like many of us, she faced chronic anxiety and low self-esteem. However, it was her own experience of living with a family member battling alcohol addiction that gave her a unique perspective on addiction. She saw first hand the destructive power of alcohol on both the individual and their life as a whole.
“ I saw the fallout in every area of that person’s life” Sarah says “and the far reaching implication addiction and destructive drinking habits can have”
Sarah’s journey toward healing and self-improvement led her to Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT). After experiencing her own profound transformation through RTT, she was inspired to retrain as a clinical hypnotherapist and RTT practitioner. Sarah’s deep dive into understanding the mind, behaviour, and emotions paved the way for her to create her holistic approach to overcoming anxiety, depression, and addiction.
What Sets Sarah's Process Apart
What sets Sarah’s program apart is her focus on empowering individuals to help themselves. While talking about problems is essential, she believes that true transformation requires taking action and making changes. Her program combines the power of RTT, which delves into the subconscious mind, with practical strategies for conscious change. By addressing the root causes of addiction, participants can free themselves from the need to use alcohol as a coping mechanism.
The Key Principles of RTT:
Rapid Transformational Therapy is a unique blend of psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, neuro-linguistic programming, and neuroscience. During an RTT session, individuals enter a relaxed state that allows access to their subconscious mind, where memories and beliefs reside. In this state, the conscious mind, responsible for judgement and ego, takes a back seat, enabling a deep exploration of the subconscious.
Understanding the subconscious drivers behind addiction is a fundamental aspect of RTT. By uncovering the root causes of drinking problems, participants experience a profound perspective shift. These insights enable them to make conscious changes that support a life free from alcohol. The RTT session typically lasts 2-2.5 hours and includes a daily hypnosis recording to rewire the brain for a healthier relationship with alcohol.
Healing the Psychological and Emotional Aspects of Alcohol Addiction:
Sarah’s program goes beyond addressing the physical aspects of addiction. She emphasises that it’s essential to shift our perspective and to recognise that addiction often stems from accumulated trauma, sadness, and pain. Rather than using trauma as an excuse to remain stuck, participants learn to view it as an opportunity for growth and self-improvement.
“I think that rehashing the past, being resentful of the past, talking about the past all the time actually keeps us stuck in the past, it’s kind of like picking off the scab of the wound and opening up Pandora’s box.”
Success Stories and Transformations using Sarah's Method for Curing Alcohol Dependency:
Sarah’s work is deeply fulfilling, and the positive transformations she witnesses are her greatest reward. Clients often reach out to her months or even years later, sharing their happiness and the ease of living an alcohol-free life. Testimonials on her website highlight improved self-esteem, self-worth, and freedom from guilt and shame. Additionally, Sarah has observed a ripple effect in clients’ relationships, with family members reducing or quitting their alcohol consumption.
One significant challenge in addiction recovery however, is the risk of relapse. Sarah believes that understanding the root causes of addiction at the subconscious level significantly reduces this risk. Her program emphasises “Mind Mastery,” teaching individuals how to retrain their conscious minds to think positively. This helps them stay self-aware and recognize triggers that may lead to relapse. The program includes conscious homework and integrations, ensuring participants have the tools they need to maintain their progress.
A Life Reset - Be Free from Alcohol:
While the ultimate goal of the program is to give up alcohol, it’s about much more than that. Sarah’s programme empowers individuals to connect with themselves, change their perspective, and boost their self-esteem. When individuals appreciate themselves more and feel better about their lives, making healthier choices becomes easier. Sarah firmly believes that choosing to live a life free of alcohol brings nothing but positivity and good outcomes.
