Brainworking Recursive Therapy – BWRT® Therapy

BWRT® stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a modern model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI.

BWRT therapy is a fast and effective therapy which can produce powerful, permanent change in just one session, It can also be done content-free which means 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. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT®.

How Does BWRT Therapy Work?

Think of the brain as a massive data input and processing centre that works at incredibly fast speeds. There are up to 100 billion neurons in the brain, creating a complex physical network of neural pathways.

Everything that we do or react to now is a response/reaction to data that we have already learned or input into our programming system since the day we were born, including our DNA genetic programming and natural instincts.

Every piece of data that was input is stored and taken as a template upon which our reactions are based. It essentially acts as a pattern matching system. In 1983, a scientist called Benjamin Libet discovered that we do not have free will in the way that we think we do. His experiment showed that we start to react to information about 0.5 seconds before we are consciously aware of it.

Our brain’s primary motive is our survival, and so if a pattern match has kept us alive or free from harm, then the brain would have deemed that as good and will look to repeat it. Problems can arise though where that data is out of date and so the response it triggers no longer serves us in a positive way. This brain response pattern is a great way of explaining why something that happened many years ago is still able to elicit a powerful emotional response now. It may not make any sense to the conscious mind, but to the subconscious it is a real and serious threat, and the subconscious mind will always win.  It will then start to initiate the fight, flight or freeze response, which is when emotions and physical reactions/symptoms will rapidly increase.

This would help to explain why;

  • We sometimes can’t stop ourselves doing things.
  • We sometimes feel that we just cannot do something we would really like to.
  • We so often limit ourselves from getting on with life.
  • We we sometimes give up on something without even trying properly to do it.
  • We we sometimes fear something when there’s no real reason to do so.
  • We some situations ‘trigger’ uncomfortable feelings, even though we have no idea why.
  • We therapy doesn’t always work as we want it to.

What Brainworking Recursive Therapy® enables us to do is catch the data input flow early enough in the neural pathway cycles so that we are able to create a new one, thus over-riding the old response to trigger situation and any emotions that would have been created by it.  Changing one part of an issue also has the effect of re-routing many others that stemmed from that main one.

All other therapies work with emotion that is generated by a stimulus whereas BWRT therapy works to change the stimulus that creates the emotion and that is what makes it so effective.

The 3 Levels of Brainworking Recursive Therapy® training:

Level 1 – General Psychopathology.

This uses a powerful method to stop triggers that causes irrational and undesired responses.

Just some of the things that it can help with: Anxiety based issues, fears and phobias, PTSD, anger, grief, procrastination, self-sabotage and performance enhancement.

Level 2 – Psychology of Identity and Behaviour

The element that we work here with is ‘Identity’. This is often seen as the source of many psychological problems and is where the client believes that their particular issue is an actual part of who they are, which makes it much harder to change.

Some of the issues it can help with: addictions, depression, low self-worth and confidence.

Level 3 – Working with the psychological impact and aspect of physical illness.  

It is well known that psychology plays a powerful role in the progress or regression of many physical ailments and so this level of BWRT therapy is designed to positively enhance the psychological aspect, eliminate pain and promote healing.

Some of the issues it can help with: autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and Fibromyalgia.
