new book shows how lies define our lives

With April 4th marking national Tell a Lie Day, therapist and best-selling author Marisa Peer reveals how reframing our beliefs and telling ourselves more constructive lies can boost wellbeing and transform our lives.

In her latest book, Tell Yourself a Better Lie, she shares her unique insight into how unmet needs in childhood can define who we are in adulthood because of our skewed belief systems, habits and the stories we tell ourselves.

One such example is experiencing a lack of parental love in childhood, which can lead to the belief ‘I’m not loveable’. This might affect a person’s ability to form and maintain healthy relationships in adulthood. A child assumes it is their fault they were not loved by a parent and continue telling themselves this ‘lie’ as they grow up as they have convinced themselves they are not worthy of love from anyone.

Marisa Peer’s latest book explains:

  • How beliefs formed in childhood can define us as adults
  • Fact or fiction - our inner dialogue can either make us or break us
  • How reframing the stories we tell ourselves using Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) can transform lives

The Root Cause Of Lies

Using her ground-breaking Rapid Transformational Therapy technique (RTT) which combines elements of psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, counselling, and coaching, Marisa guides clients to the root cause of the issues. Often this is what holds them back, and she then reframes unhelpful beliefs and thought patterns - giving clients the knowledge to regain their power and transform their lives.

Illustrated through ten unique stories from her client sessions, Peer demonstrates how RTT helped them to turn their lives around, giving them freedom from problems such as suicidal depression, eating disorders, weight-loss and life-limiting phobias and addictions.

Commenting on the book, Marisa said: ‘The saddest lie we tell ourselves  is  “I am not loveable”or “not loveable enough’. Telling ourselves we are not smart enough or good enough or interesting enough is simply not true. Look at the list of talented and famous people who were all caught up in this spiral of self-deceit - from Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe to Michael Jackson, Princess Diana and If you find yourself telling these lies, practice changing  it to I am loveable, I am enough, I matter or I am significant. Do this often enough, and I promise your world will change.’
