What is BWRT®?

BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® or BWRT for short, is a neuroscience-based process that has been shown to be useful to help reduce or alleviate the symptoms, and causes of symptoms, associated with Anxiety, Phobias, PTSD, Depression, Low confidence, Low self-esteem, and many other psychological issues.

Developed by UK professional therapist Terence Watts, MCGI, in 2011 after 35,000 hours of experience working with clients, it is determinedly solution-focused and evidence-based, thus fulfils the requirements of modern therapies.

It’s fast, effective, and long-lasting – usually permanent…

…and it doesn’t require you to tap, pinch, breathe in a special way or any other form of post-therapy model. It just works!

It’s a totally confidential method that doesn’t require you to reveal private information or intimate details of your personal life or of any event that you wish to keep private that might have been the cause of your symptom! It is NOT based on hypnosis or any supernatural concepts and is a rational and logical therapy.

It only needs you to know what you want to change!

It works in a unique way to ‘defuse’ psychological triggers and patterns before they reach the part of the brain that activates the emotional responses. The symptoms either become alleviated or greatly reduced in severity. BWRT® mimics the way the brain and psyche acquire the difficulty in the first place and is therefore a totally natural process. The ‘engine’ of BWRT is a naturally occurring brain state, the ‘Freeze’ response, a ‘synthetic’ version of which is induced therapeutically and without trauma.

BWRT works with the primitive brain and reconditions the automatic responses

It’s virtually content free, meaning we don’t try to get to the route of the issue! All you have to do is find the worst memory. It doesn’t need chronical timelines or years of exploring where it came from in the first place. Find that worst memory and BWRT® freezes it and replaces it with the preferred response.

While there is not a therapy in the world that works for everybody every time, BWRT® is considered by many to be among the most reliable of psychological methodologies.

All trainers of this model of psychopathology are selected by The Terence Watts BWRT Institute and all adhere to the same training programme and ethical codes to ensure, as far as possible, consistency in technical expertise across the globe.
