Rapid Transformational Results with BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®

BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®, also known as BWRT®, is a modern and very effective type of psychological therapy based on the latest knowledge of how the brain works.  BWRT® helps people to change their thought and behaviour patterns when faced with certain situations or stimuli, thus allowing them to achieve desired changes to habits, behaviours, emotions or even sense of identity.

I am very pleased to be able to offer my clients access to BWRT®, which can be carried out either face to face or online¹.   I am an Advanced BWRT® practitioner, and a founder member of the British BrainWorking Research Society, which has been established to continue researching new methodologies and outcomes using BWRT® principles.

What is BWRT® and 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.

What can BWRT® help with?
BWRT® can provide relief from a wide range of problems – from unwanted habits,  irrational phobias or fears to behavioural or emotional problems.  BWRT® can also help to address anxiety, performance or exam nerves. Advanced (Level 2) BWRT® can help to address more deeply ingrained issues related to how you see yourself (identity) including confidence, self-esteem, motivation or self image problems.

How long does it take?
Many people see good results following just one session; sometimes it takes a little longer, but rarely more than 2 or 3 sessions for an individual problem.  If the problem you want to resolve is more deeply rooted or is connected to how you see yourself, then I may advise using the Advanced BWRT® protocol (Level 2) which is a minimum 4 week programme with a session once per week.  Again, more follow up sessions may be required, but I will guide you throughout and let you know what to expect at all stages.

How can I find out more?
Just get in touch with me for a chat.  I’d be happy to answer your questions about BWRT®.  A BWRT® session costs the same as a counselling or hypnosis session (see my fees here) though results may be obtained more quickly.  If I feel that the issue you wish to address may not be suitable for BWRT® I will let you know and discuss other options with you.

Further information provided by the British BrainWorking Research Society:
BWRT® is 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 information on our website: https://www.bbrs.org.uk/index.php

BrainWorking Recursive Therapy™ (BWRT®) at Life Insight

I am an Advanced Practitioner of BrainWorking Recursive Therapy™ (BWRT®) which means that I am trained to the highest standards and am able to offer it to my clients to address a wide variety of issues (see below).  I am also a founder member of the British BrainWorking Research Society, founded to continue research into the applications of BWRT®.

BWRT® is 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.

BWRT® is a ‘talking therapy’ – so it involves no physical contact – and it is carried out in a fully conscious state so does not involve hypnosis.  It is really very simple, but also very powerful and many people have found that their issues have been resolved very quickly, often in a single session.

Although its applications are widespread, BWRT® has been shown to be particularly effective for the following issues:

  • Fears and phobias
  • Unwanted habits (including Stop Smoking)
  • Anxieties
  • Emotional difficulties
  • Bereavement
  • Relationship problems
  • Confidence and poor self esteem
  • Performance fears (exams, tests or interviews, sports, public speaking…)
  • Procrastination

Many issues can be addressed with Level 1 BWRT® in as little as 1 session, though repeat sessions may be advised, dependant upon each client’s outcome.  However some more deeply ingrained problems will respond better to Level 2 BWRT®, which is a programme of 4 or 5 weekly sessions.  I am trained to Level 2 (Advanced BWRT®) will tell you which I believe would be most suitable for you at our initial consultation.

Please get in touch if you would like to know more about how BWRT® could help you, or for more information about BWRT® visit the Institute of BrainWorking Recursive Therapy™ website at http://www.bwrt.org

Afraid of the dentist? Try this!

I was recently at the dentists, having some pretty invasive work done – you know the type – root canal work, large syringes and all sorts of other tortuous looking instruments! The treatment lasted for about an hour.  Personally I don’t usually have much problem with dental work, I’m usually able to take myself off in my mind so that I hardly notice what’s going on. However on those occasions that the work has gone on for some time and been fairly complex – I admit that at times I’ve felt pretty uncomfortable.   And so I was expecting some discomfort and anxiety this time.  However, it was completely different on this occasion – and not because the treatment wasn’t difficult, it was purely down to the way I coped with it.

My dentist normally talks through the whole procedure, giving a commentary both for my benefit, but also for his nurse, but to be honest I normally don’t pay much attention.  But this time it turned out that at one point that he was trying to get my attention to ask me to do something – and I was so far away, the nurse had to physically shake me to get my attention!  Yes I was miles away and hardly aware at all of what was going on.  Even on previous occasions when I’ve used self-hypnosis in the dental chair, I’ve never before achieved that level of ‘trance’, which is what I believe it was.  When I “came to” there I was with clamps and dental pliers sticking out of my mouth that I’d been completely unaware of!  That suction thing (that I normally find pretty unpleasant) was doing its job quite happily, without my even noticing it.

Yet curiously, when I asked myself what I HAD been focused on instead  – the answer was not waterfalls, a walk through a meadow, or a tropical beach  or any of those things that traditional hypnotherapy recommends, no…. I was completely and utterly absorbed by thinking about my plans for later that day!   Work, to be precise.  Yes, dull I know!

Now I am aware that other Hypnotherapists may say that this isn’t helpful; that we should take our mind away from reality,  to “a safe place”  – or some imaginary fantasy.  But on this occasion I discovered that my more practical daydreaming was the perfect distraction to take my mind off what was going on.   To the degree that I hardly felt a thing, and the hour was over in a flash!  At the end of the appointment my dentist complimented me on my relaxed demeanour and how well I’d coped with what he said was a tough treatment session.

However I do admit that probably the most uncomfortable part was the injections at the start – probably because at that stage I hadn’t yet taken my mind far enough away.  But I do find that dental injections are much easier to cope with if you allow yourself to become curious about the sensation.  Because when you are more receptive to it, the sensation is not particularly painful – I’m sure we all undergo much more painful things in our lives, such as, in my case, standing up in heels for a whole evening!  The sensation is a bit odd and uncomfortable, but on a scale of 1-10 pain wise I’d put it no higher than a 3 or 4.

So,  next time you’re about to have some dental work,  why not try being curious about the injections, and then allowing your mind to drift to thinking about what you’ll be doing later in the day, or other future plans!  It seems to work for me!
