What is RIM®?
Regenerating Images in Memory® (RIM®) was created in 1999 by Dr. Deborah Sandella, PhD, MS, RN. It’s a transformational technique that frees you of negative thoughts, feelings and memories, so you are empowered to achieve your true potential and add peace to your life.
Dr. Deb is author of the #1 International Bestseller Goodbye Hurt & Pain, 7 Simple Steps to Health, Love and Success. She has a Master of Science degree in Psychiatric Nursing and a Doctorate in Human Communication. She has taught at the University of Colorado and conducted research through the University of Denver. Dr. Deb has helped thousands of people over 40 years as an award-winning psychotherapist, university professor and creator of the revolutionary Regenerating Images in Memory (RIM®) technique.
The Science Behind It.
The RIM® process allows you to re-generate your neurologically grounded sense of self in a profound way. Neuroscience research has proven that the brain and nervous system is plastic or changeable. In 2000, a researcher at the College of William and Mary discovered that recalling a memory biochemically destabilized it, so it could be recreated in an affirming way.
Your nervous system imprints an imagined experience similar to an actual experience, so you can re-generate emotional body memory to create neurologically-rooted positive endings to old hurt and pain. All the while, factual memory remains stable. In the last step of the RIM® process, you integrate a new feeling that automatically stimulates health in your mind, body and spirit. You begin to trust that life wants you to thrive and succeed.
Rinnovo co-founder Bill Besse is a Certified RIM® Facilitator. He has been personally trained and mentored by Dr. Deb over the course of a year-long, highly-intensive program, and he is currently in the process of obtaining his Master level certification, an additional year-long program. As a Master Facilitator, Bill must complete annual requirements that include leadership, client service, continuing education, technological advancement and research in RIM®.

- How does the role of a RIM® Facilitator differ from a traditional therapist or coach?
- When can RIM® be used?
- How does this program differ from other healing or transformational programs?
RIM® is grounded in the latest neuro-science research. These recent scientific findings substantiate how RIM® effectively works to directly access and dissolve hidden blocks stored in emotional memory.
Unlike methods based in intellectual understanding and analytical skill development, RIM® allows the facilitator to guide the client around and under old defenses to permanently change. As hidden emotions and self-limiting beliefs gently come into awareness, the RIM® process actively empowers the client to transform and create new self-affirming emotional memory. RIM® allows the client to dissolve blocks specific to an identified problem or issue.
- Do you need to have a special background such as psychology to become a RIM® Facilitator?
No, a special background in psychology is not required to become a RIM® Facilitator. Since RIM® is a transformative technique and not psychotherapy or coaching, students in the RIM® Facilitator programs DO NOT learn how to conduct either psychotherapy or coaching sessions. These skills must be acquired elsewhere.
RIM® is a transformational, body-centered technique built upon the belief that each individual is whole at their core. When we clear the emotional debris of human experience, we can access a very wise and enlightened resource within the self. The RIM® process is client-generated – it creates the primary relationship between client and him/herself rather than with the Facilitator. Further, the RIM® process operates on whole brain activity by tapping the left brain as the operating system to understand the insights and resources of the right intuitive brain. Because of these fundamental differences, the RIM® Facilitator’s role is quite different from a coach or psychotherapist. On the other hand, RIM® does require professionalism, integrity and a sincere willingness to continuously address one’s own issues so they do not get in the way.
