BWRT Brain working Recursive Therapy
As a Solution focussed Behavioural Psychopathologist, and a member of The British BrainWorking Research Society (BBRS) which was created as a result of the amount of research carried out, and support from, among others, the NHS, Sarah is one of only 200 therapists in the UK trained in this cutting edge therapy. It is an immensely powerful style of working that can often dissolve problems almost instantaneously
‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a modern model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It uses a totally logical, practical and down-to-earth working method in which it’s not necessary for you to talk about anything you would rather not discuss – the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is unlike any other therapy you might have heard of or read about, using the latest discoveries in neuroscience coupled with your own unique brain processes to help you get better. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at http://www.bwrt.org
"When people come to see me they’ve often tried other types of therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), without success. Some tell me that, although CBT was helpful for a while, their symptoms returned.
This is is because unwanted behaviours, or self-limiting beliefs, originate in the non-conscious part of the brain – and that’s where we need to target therapy, not just by talking to the conscious mind. BWRT is different because it works with the non-conscious brain and is consistent with current developments in neuroscience.
This therapy can work with so many different issues. Sometimes, I only need one session to help someone with a lifelong phobia, or crippling panic attacks.
What is BWRT®
A model of psychology and psychotherapy that that does not require you to reveal your private information or personal secrets to your therapist and it is carried out in a completely conscious state. It does not use hypnosis or any concepts that might be considered mystical or unscientific – it’s completely logical, practical, down-to-earth, and backed up by neuroscience.
How does it work?
BWRT® is a talking therapy that involves no state change such as hypnosis or trance, nor does it involve any physical intervention or touch. It is unlike any form of therapy you may have experienced before. However is simple, safe and effective and often very quick. You will work with a BWRT® practitioner such as myself who will help you to access and implement the changes you wish to make at a neurological level, taking advantage of the brain’s plasticity (ability to change the way it processes information, thoughts or feelings). This is all done by using your own creativity and brain power!
You will be guided through the process, which is relatively simple and fast.
For it to succeed it only needs you to know what you want to change in your life. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code.
