BrainWorking Recursive Therapy - BWRT

I am a fully trained and qualified BWRT Level 1 Practitioner Member of the British BrainWorking Research Society.  


BWRT stands for 'BrainWorking Recursive Therapy', a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK Professional Therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. 

It's a totally confidential method that doesn't require you to reveal your private information or personal secrets to your therapist, and is carried out in a completely conscious state. 

It doesn't use hypnosis or any mystical concepts - it's completely logical, practical, and down-to-earth, and only needs you to know what you want to change in your life for it to be completely successful. 

Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT and all of us have to adhere to a strict ethical code.

A very basic explanation of how BWRT works....

Every second of our lives our brain is receiving loads of messages and it looks for stuff that is similar to what we've experienced before.  It looks for patterns and matches responses to situations that present themselves.  If what we did last time worked i.e. we didn't die, it tries instinctively and robotically to follow that same pattern.  The problem is that our brain works at such great speeds and isn't very logical, so it doesn't give us time to think - in fact, all the brain activity happens before we've had a chance to think, i.e. become consciously aware of it. There's a time delay between data arriving in our mind and us becoming consciously aware of it.  BWRT makes full use of this cognitive gap between instinctive reaction and conscious awareness of our response to a situation. This cognitive gap provides a time-limited opportunity to change a client's response to a situation or stimulus from a negative to a more productive helpful one. In a logical conscious manner, the client decides what s/he would like to feel instead and replaces the negative feeling with the neutral or more positive one, not just in the current moment, but in future situations when the once negative stimulus is presented.  A new, helpful neural pathway is created in the brain as a result of this work. 

Here's an example of how we learn fear in a situation and how our brain uses anxiety to steer us away from it.  Imagine you went to party and something upset you there, and made you feel very uncomfortable...this could lead to uncomfortable feelings each time you went to a social event where people were gathered together. You may really want to go to another party but your mind would start imagining all sorts of uncomfortable feelings.  After a while, this would become a habit and you just wouldn't be able to go to such events.  The original uncomfortable event would probably be long forgotten, but the response that your body has learned would be remembered.  Using BWRT we can train that speedy, reactive, robotic and instinctive part of your thoughts, that it's OK to do the thing you want to do and feel relaxed or comfortable.  

BWRT is extremely effective in the treatment of fears and phobias such as the fear of flying, spider phobia, fears of presenting in public, fears of operations, and so the list goes on.  I've been using BWRT with my clients since April 2019, and the results have been amazing.
