"BWRT is a completely personalised therapy that is customised specifically to the way your brain and mind work. The technique has a strong foundation in science and evolutionary biology and is designed to work directly in the cognitive gap between the reptilian complex responding to a trigger (such as a stressful situation) and the individual becoming aware of what's happening. This enables the individual to overwrite whatever problem they're experiencing with new information and in this book Terence Watts details the steps of the procedures to help you achieve this outcome."

What is BWRT®?
BWRT® stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Technique™’, a model for help with personal issues created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It’s a totally confidential method that does not require you to reveal your private information or personal secrets to your therapist and it is carried out in a completely conscious state. It does not use hypnosis or any concepts that might be considered mystical or unscientific - it’s completely logical, practical and down-to-earth, and for it to succeed only needs you to know what you want to change in your life. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at http://www.bwrt.org
BWRT® gets its name from the way the brain works, in its ability to continually assess the environment and make adjustments as necessary to insure your success. The technique uses these adjustments to enable fast-acting but long-term self-improvement. BWRT® benefits from working on a principle of being nearly 90% content free--meaning you do not need to spend hours talking about the problem you are having!
This exciting approach is completely conscious (no trance work as you would find in hypnotherapy). It is a great option for those who would love to experience the benefits of hypnotherapy-type treatments, but are resistant to the concept of a hypnotic trance, or find it difficult to relax. BWRT® is highly effective and fast! It is a unique approach that puts you completely in control, allowing you to cut off old emotional responses to issues. You feel a sense of peace and empowerment, having developed your own ‘new’ response to the previous issue. Most issues can be resolved in as little as as 1-2 sessions!
How does it work?
The principle of BWRT® is that you can take the bad habit or emotional reaction you have to an issue and replace it with a preferred outcome--one that YOU create. What few people realize is that when faced with a situation your mind has already made a decision about how to react BEFORE you have a chance to consciously intervene – which is why you sometimes find yourself repeatedly getting frustrated with a situation and thinking ‘why did I do that?' after you did it!
BWRT® doesn’t use hypnosis or anything that might be considered to be mystical – it is a science-based, totally grounded methodology that deals with uncomfortable emotional or psychological triggers before you are even aware of them. While many approaches work on the response after it has been generated, with BWRT® the problem is dealt with ‘at source’, before it even gets to the conscious mind. This approach leaves you feeling better and reacting in a way that feels more appropriate and uniquely "you".
What happens in a treatment?
During a BWRT® session, YOU are completely responsible for changing your response to your issues, while the BWRT® practitioner acts as a guide, helping you create new neural pathways that bypass your old responses. As long as you have the ability to visualize images and recall memories, you will be astounded by the results of this treatment.
For example, if you experience social anxiety when visiting new places, you can replace this with the calmness you normally have in familiar places and remove the old response.
During a session of BWRT®, I will ask you a few questions about your background and what has brought you to see me – but you will not be asked to reveal any secrets or intimate details about your life. This is a totally private approach in which you only have to be able to tell me 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 I would then ask if you can think how you would like to feel instead. If you can, I will get straight to work; if you can’t, I will help you decide – and again, you will NEVER have to reveal any details you don't want to share.
