RTT Method logo


Building and growing our evidence base
Since September 2020, we have captured over 1,000 client cases across a wide variety of presenting issues. We have an increasing number of therapists using the CMS to capture data in a consistent and rigorous way, to enable us to analyse key dimensions of the intervention such as our clients’ clinical profiles, the efficacy of RTT on their presenting issue, their overall wellbeing along with the duration of the intervention.

How We Measure Efficacy

Using a wide range of measures to evidence efficacy
We use a number of widely recognised outcome scales to measure overall wellbeing and specific outcomes in a range of therapeutic areas. We are currently validating our own unique outcome measures through studies with academic partners.
Developing our own RTT-led measurement tool
In July 2021 we started capturing outcomes around the key pillars of RTT and are busy analysing our results to establish its validity as a data instrument as well as looking at their correlation with our ORS results.
Wellbeing In The Workplace
We undertook a Wellbeing In The Workplace survey in the autumn of 2021 to assess the priorities of employees in the post-Covid world of hybrid working.
Taking a long term view
Working with our clients, we have started to collate longitudinal data at three and six month in order to ensure that RTT is recognised as a sustainable, evidence based intervention.


Internal Analysis

Internal Analysis

Our in-house analysis shows that RTT enables clients to ‘reach target’ and see a positive change in over 80% of cases as defined by the ORS model and on completion of their RTT intervention cycle. We have identified that RTT is particularly effective at dealing with issues around anxiety, lack of confidence and self-esteem. It also enables the vast majority of clients presenting with issues such as chronic pain, insomnia or a desire to lose weight to achieve positive results. As we continue to grow our evidence base, our analysis will enable us to fine-tune our understanding of where RTT is most effective, and why.

Wellbeing in the Workplace

Our initial results (n=125 as of Oct 21) show that 83% of clients report a positive impact on their presenting issue and 84% on their overall wellbeing. Among those who had an RTT session over seven months ago (n=25), 76% reported a positive impact on their initial issue whilst 84% told us that their overall wellbeing has benefited significantly.

Independent Review

Independent Review Of Our Results By An Academic Team In The UK

In September 2021 we partnered with a UK-based university who are now looking at our data and peer reviewing our results to provide an unbiased, independent view of the efficacy of RTT.


Educational Settings School Pilot

Within some schools young people fail to thrive due to a combination of lack of confidence and anxiety. This can lead to low- level disruption within the classroom and a loss of concentration. Our pilot initiative emerged in response to this and targeted young people experiencing a number of these complex challenges. The aim was to support a small number of pupils identified as exhibiting early signs of disruption, and improve their emotional well being.

We have been delivering a pilot programme tracking these young people (aged between 14 and 18) over a period of 12 months with the goal of establishing if RTT is an effective intervention in these areas within an educational setting. Our RTT therapists are delivering sessions via Zoom within the school.

Study Goals and Objectives:

Our pilot has three main goals:

Our results will be peer reviewed by an independent academic partner and are expected to be published in March 2022

Healthcare Settings NHS Pilots

In January 2021, Public Health England launched a new campaign – “Every Mind Matters” – following its findings from a national survey which revealed the impact of COVID-19.

In particular, NHS staff were found to be facing serious mental wellbeing challenges exacerbated by the pandemic. Already stretched to the limit, the added workload saw clearly identifiable patterns of sickness absence.

Working with an NHS Trust, we are looking at how RTT can benefit support staff experiencing stress, anxiety and early symptoms of PTSD. The aim is to help them better cope with the ongoing pressure of the pandemic.

The project is expected to run until Autumn 2022.
