Nomination Title: Marisa Peer

Tell the story about what this nominated woman has achieved since 1 January 2017 (up to 650 words). Describe the impact she has had on her organization. Focus on specific accomplishments, and relate these accomplishments to past performance or industry norms.

Founder and President of I Am Enough, LLC, Marisa Peer dedicates her life to empowering people to have greater self esteem. Having grown up with her own insecurities around not feeling good enough and watching many of her friends and colleagues suffer from anorexia and bulimia, Marisa discovered that she could help them overcome their issues using the power of neuroplasticity, whereby one dialogues with the mind in a particular way that is always results orientated. Marisa has spent the past 30 years honing and refining neuroplasticity and now teaches her method to Doctors and to school teachers working with depressed anxious and underachieving children. As a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, Marisa has personally worked with thousands of people from across the globe - stressed single parents, infertile couples, drug addicts, autistic children, CEO’s, Hollywood actors and members of the Royal Family - helping them all to live happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives.

Gil Boyne, the World’s authority on hypnotherapy and CEO and Chairman Emeritus of Hypnotism Training Institute of Los Angeles says, “Marisa is one of a few in history to have had a profound impact on the field of hypnotherapy. She made the field of hypnotherapy/psychotherapy into something greater than it had ever been. Her brilliance goes far beyond her early instinctive recognition and integrates many of the most profound insights in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. What has emerged is an incredible effectiveness and is one of a few in history to have had a profound impact on the field of therapy.”

Marisa pioneered a new therapy method Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT™) that is heralded as the new standard in psychotherapy. It is different to other traditional therapy techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and talk therapy because it achieves profound and lasting results for some clients in as little as 2 sessions. One of only a handful of women in history to do so, Marisa’s unique RTT™ methodology was created after spending years analyzing her most profound cases and stunning turnarounds.

Having achieved globally validated results for clients, RTT™ has received accreditation in the US, UK, and Australia including the National Council of Psychotherapists, the American Board of Hypnotherapy, the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists, International Council of Psychotherapists and the International Association of Counselors and Therapists.

In addition to helping people overcome fears, addictions and phobias, as a single-mom, Marisa knew that she wanted people, particularly women, to have careers that allowed them the freedom to operate a business from home while supporting their families. In 2017 Marisa personally trained nearly 1500 students from the US, Canada, Europe, South America, South Africa, UAE, Australia and New Zealand in the RTT™ methodology.

With a background in child psychology and passion for the emotional wellbeing of children, throughout her career, Marisa has worked tirelessly on behalf of children. In Zimbabwe, she partnered with clients to help fund an orphanage to pay for the children’s education. After seeing the far-reaching and devastating impact of bullying in America, with 20% of all US students report being bullied, Marisa was committed to using her tools to make a difference. In 2017, Marisa produced an anti-bullying program for the San Francisco schools system called RTT™ and Me. Teens in 5 high schools throughout San Francisco are already seeing results in their self-esteem and academic performance by using these life changing RTT™ skills to increase their self confidence and self worth. This work impacts not only those who have been victims of bullying, it also helps the bullies. We plan to roll out the program throughout the US.
