A simple neuroscience technique that offer relief for trauma and phobias.

I am a qualified BWRT practitioner.

BWRT® - what is it?

It is a new model of psychology and psychopathology that fits comfortably with current thinking on neuroscience. In a BWRT session, you can address any trauma without having to restate the traumatic details to the therapist. 

Perhaps the most important thing about it is that it is unique, entirely scientific, and works in a quite different way from slower therapies such as CBT, counselling, hypnotherapy or any touch-therapies.

What is it used for?

BWRT® has successfully been used to treat:

  • PTSD and Acute Stress Reactions due to trauma

  • Anxiety

  • Phobias

  • Addiction

The Therapy

You might already be able to see that many ‘symptoms’ are the result of a behaviour’ that has been activated before. It might actually have been suitable or effective at one time but now is of no consequence to the non-reasoning part of the brain. The instruction appears to be: If there’s already a pattern associated with the stimulus, activate it immediately before there’s any conscious interference. This now provides a clear and understandable answer to the old question of ‘Why does my subconscious do stuff I don’t want it to?’

BWRT® makes it possible, via a simple technique, to create a new response pattern to any stimulus so that the action the brain triggers is one that we want. The therapy is totally content-free, too, so the client doesn’t have to tell the therapist about deeply sensitive or intimate issues, making therapy far easier to conduct in a great many situations.

There’s no tapping, touching, hand passes, or anything else that could possibly be thought of as ‘weird’. The other great thing about it is that we don’t need to find the Initial Sensitising Event, only the worst or strongest memory of the symptom that the client can consciously find.

BWRT® doesn’t use reframes, rewind techniques, hypnosis, NLP, CBT, WSN, SD, EFT, BB4B, anything to do with eye movement, or anything else you will have already encountered. It’s unique, effective and fast. Other therapies seek to modify or remove negative emotional responses, while BWRT® works in such a way that the response simply doesn’t arise in the first place.

The title ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’ comes from the recursive looping process that we use first to focus thoughts, then to cement and strengthen the new behavioural response, and continual testing since 2011 shows that the changes we make appear to be permanent.
