What Other Therapists Are Saying About RLT
“My work with Terry has greatly enriched me as a therapist. I’ve been in practice over 35 years and trained with many exceptional therapists. Training with Terry has pulled all this together and enabled my interventions to be more elegant and to the point, resulting in my client work being more focused and penetrating without sacrificing empathy or compassion”

— Jeanne O.
“After 25 years of working as a Psychotherapist and Marriage Counselor I was ready to “hang it all up.” I was more than burnt out. Now, 6 months later, I am reinvested in my work and enjoying it in a brand new way. Renewed energy and enthusiasm for my work has replaced the negativity I was experiencing. Thanks so much RLT!”

“Before learning Terry Real’s model I would work with couples to problem solve their dilemmas of the day. I always had misgivings about the long-term potential of my work because although I was aware I was working mostly on the content level with my clients, I did not know how to move in deeper to address with them their relational processes. Now, having Terry’s model for teaching clients healthy relating, I have guidelines to help them perform the modest miracle of personal transformation on a permanent process level, no matter what the content. It’s really tremendous to be instrumental in people achieving that.”
