PLEASE NOTE: The description of what BWRT is and how it works given on AI Chat bots is often inaccurate on several counts.
What is BWRT?
BWRT® stands for BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® and is a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It's a totally confidential method that doesn't require you to reveal your private information or personal secrets to your therapist and is carried out in a completely conscious state. It doesn't use hypnosis or any mystical concepts - it's completely logical, practical and down-to-earth, and only needs you to know what you want to change in your life for it to be successful. Only bona fide BWRT practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code.

It is based on the natural way the brain works and uses the exact same mental processes to resolve your problems as were active in causing them in the first place. Although many people don't realise it, our brain starts to react to all sorts of things before we are consciously aware of it - and this answers a good few questions:
- Why we sometimes feel totally inadequate
- Why we sometimes feel that everybody else in the world 'gets it'
- Why, no matter how hard we try, we just can't seem to manage 'normal life'
- Why we sometimes 'bury our head in the sand' about a problem
- Why we sometimes have not even the slightest idea of why we feel miserable
- Why we sometimes can't handle situations that others seem to find easy
- Why it's usually not possible to 'just pull yourself together'
And one of the best things about BWRT is that you don't have to put up with a therapist sifting through your whole life trying to find out what caused the problems - with BWRT we don't need to know anything about that.
As long as we know what you feel like and how you want to feel instead, BWRT® can work wonders! You don't even have to tell our practitioners anything you don't want to talk about either. For instance, if you know that a certain situation makes you really anxious with other people, all you need to tell the practitioner is that you sometimes get really anxious with other people and we can work with that.
BWRT® works with the part of the brain that learns how to do things on 'automatic' pilot - it's what is often referred to as 'the subconscious'.
It helps you do things with hardly any thought, like writing your name, reciting a nursery rhyme, driving or tying shoelaces for example. It's the same part of the brain that springs into action when you accidently knock something of a shelf and your hand flies out to catch it without the tiniest pause for thought.
Unfortunately, that very same part of the brain doesn't know if you want it to do whatever it's triggering or not, so it does it anyway, and if that's firing up a panic attack or phobia, or suddenly feeling as if you're completely out of your depth with something, there's nothing you can do to stop it. And that's where we come in, helping you to change what needs to be changed to improve the quality of your life.
BWRT has been the subject of a Ph.D. awarded from Lincoln University, UK, and professors at the University of Bergen, Norway, were so impressed with it that in 2021 they funded and organised a clinical trial: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34696777/ This was delayed because of Covid issues but was restarted in 2023.
Older models of therapy
Most of the older therapy models worked with the part of the mind that experiences the problem, the conscious part of self - and the problem with that is that we have to somehow feed information back through the jungle of those conscious thoughts and processes about what we want to happen instead. Even if it's just to stop the problem from occurring, we have to get through layers of doubt, fear and experience. And it can be a time-consuming and uncomfortable process.
But with BWRT®, things are totally different, because we know exactly how to work directly with the very part that's causing the problem in the first place - and that's why so many experienced Practitioners consider BWRT® to be the fastest known effective therapy!
So powerfully effective is it that it's now being used by psychologists, counsellors, therapists and psychiatrists worldwide to help resolve all manner of psychological difficulties. It's even being used in some parts of the world to help resolve the severe PTSD that affects the military and the police - and if it can do that, it's odds on that it can help you!
To find out more about how you might be set free from what ails you, have a chat with one of the practitioners you can find on our search page. Many of them work online with Zoom or similar, too, so you don't even have to leave the comfort of your home to get what so many practitioners are describing as the only therapy they need, no matter what the problem. So now, even distance won't get in the way of you finding the best life you can have!
BWRT is just as effective online or over the 'phone as it is in a face-to-face setting and most of our practitioners will be happy to work with you that way - so you can still have therapy without adding to any risk to health.
