What is BWRT?


BWRT® was created in 2011 by Terence Watts, a therapist, author of many books and training courses and principal of the Essex Institute in Essex, UK. Like many great ideas it was born out of a moment of inspiration while reading about some experiments carried out in 1983 which appeared to show that we don’t actually have free will in the way we usually think of it. More than that, it showed that decisions were made and acted upon by our mental processes before we become consciously aware of them.
It was immediately evident that this process accounted for a huge number of the psychological difficulties which so many people have to put up with, and obvious, too, that with some research it could provide the basis for a profound therapeutic intervention, something more powerful and effective than anything that existed to date. Terence had for some time been working on an idea to work with several complicated issues:

Why we sometimes can’t stop ourselves doing things.
Why we so often limit ourselves from getting on with life.
Why we sometimes give up on something without even trying properly to do it.
Why we sometimes fear something when there’s no real reason to do so.
Why some situations ‘trigger’ uncomfortable feelings, even though we have no idea why.
Why therapy doesn’t always work as we want it to.

The research, investigation and analysis Terence had carried out so far had raised almost as many question as answers; he was unwilling, though, to accept that this was just the way things are and it was reading about the 1983 experiments that the key to the entire puzzle exploded into Terence’s mind. He began working on the project immediately and it became evident almost immediately that here was something very special indeed, something that worked in a way that was different and more effective than ever before. After extensive testing, a training program was implemented and rapidly gained the reputation among many therapists as a ‘must have’ process for working with all manner of issues; it was shortly after that that his institute became an independent training organization, dedicated solely to the training of this particular process.

Frequently Asked Question

What can BWRT do?

BWRT® is an immensely powerful style of working that can dissolve problems almost instantaneously.
There is no other therapy in the world that is the same as BWRT®. Certified BWRT® Practitioners receive thorough training in this totally modern methodology and are completely conversant with the techniques needed to work effectively with a great number of problems and difficulties.

What typically happens in a session?

During a session of BWRT®, you will be asked a few questions about your background and what has brought you to the session – This is a totally 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 you will never have to reveal any details you really don’t want to.

It really is that simple and that private?

BWRT® is a science-based, totally grounded methodology that deals with uncomfortable emotional or psychological triggers before you are even aware of them. Is does not employ hypnosis. Most other therapies work on the response after it has been generated, requiring you to tell the practitioner what you’re thinking about – but with BWRT® the problem is dealt with ‘at source’, before it even gets to the conscious mind.

How it works

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!

New Neural Pathways

What if we could simply communicate with the brain directly and change it’s classification of the stored data so that the future output becomes your desired goal? Brain Working Recursive Therapy allows you to communicate directly with the part of your brain that is normally ahead of your conscious thinking. The brain can then create new neural pathways that reinforce your new chosen behaviour or outcome. This new and exciting protocol is bringing rapid results for many people, often in a single session, where other therapies may take much longer.
