All our practitioners have been personally trained and vetted by the originator of BWRT® or others appointed by the originator because of their high-level of expertise in this style of working, so you can be certain of working with a professional therapist. Only members who have passed a professional assessment of their skills will be able to show you a certificate confirming their BWRT® certification.
The practitioner's profile will list any specialities or special expertise and their name appearing on this site indicates that they are proficient in the BWRT process. Unless otherwise stated, they are not graduates of any medical school and therefore are not to be seen as providing any alternative to conventional medical care.
Many practitioners have elected to continue with further professional development and training, and have registered with The British BrainWorking Research Society which indicates their commitment to professional advancement. These practitioners are designated as a 'Registered Practitioner'. This does not necessarily indicate that they have a higher level of skill, though it does show that they will be aware of the latest therapy techniques. To find a list of registered Practitioners, please visit the website of The British BrainWorking Research Society and click on 'Find a Therapist'.
There are currently three skill levels in BWRT® indicated by the designation 'Level 1' or 'Level 2' or 'Level 3' on their displayed logo.
Level 2 Practitioners have undergone extra training to allow them to provide assistance for complex issues like dependencies and other deep-rooted personal issues such as self-destructive behaviour and repeated relationship problems.
Level 3 Practitioners have been trained at the highest level of BWRT and are able to help you cope with chronic debilitating physical illness and other serious issues.
All practitioners are also skilled in other styles of working so that on the rare occasion that this style of work is not the best for your difficulty, they will be able to advise accordingly and offer an alternative therapy.
During a session of BWRT®, the practitioner will ask you a few questions about your background and what has brought you to see them. The more complex the siutation, the more questions they might ask but they will not ask you to reveal any secrets or intimate details of your life that you do not wish to divulge. It's fair to say, though, they will need to know something of your background to ensure BWRT is the right therapy for you and will advise accordingly.
This is essentially a private therapy in which you only have to be able to tell the practitioner how you feel and how you would like to feel instead. For instance, you might say something like: "Social situations scare me half to death!" and the practitioner would then ask if you can think how you would like to feel instead. If you can, they will get straight to work; if you can't, they will help you decide - and again, you will never have to reveal any details you really don't want to.
It really is that simple and that private!
BWRT® doesn't use hypnosis or anything that might be considered by some to be mystical or unscientific - it is a science-based, totally grounded methodology that deals with uncomfortable emotional or psychological triggers before you are even aware of them. Most other therapies work on the response after it has been generated, requiring you to tell the practitioner what you're thinking about - but BWRT® works with the problem 'at source', before it even gets to the concious mind.
The practitioner will explain fully how the process works and although, as in all work of this sort, you have a vital part to play in the process, it is a very easy part - in fact you will have to do very little more than keep focused on how you want to be when the work is complete... and that could be the same day you started!
Please note that if your presenting problem could have a medical basis, BWRT practitioners will only be able to work with you after you have had a relevant medical consultation.
All BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® professional therapists have been properly trained in this specific therapy and hold certification to show this. If a therapist does not hold such certification, they may have not been officially trained by the Institute of BrainWorking Recursive Therapy and may not be genuine BWRT® Professionals.
