BrainWorking Recursive Therapy

The fundamental idea of BWRT is that, although our brains are incredibly complicated, one of their most important tasks is in essence simple; to assess whether the information received from our senses matches some previous experience.

The fundamental idea of BWRT is that, although our brains are incredibly complicated, one of their most important tasks is in essence simple; to assess whether the information received from our senses matches some previous experience.

BWRT, which stands for "BrainWorking Recursive Therapy" is a system of therapy developed by UK professional therapist Terence Watts. The fundamental idea of BWRT is that, although our brains are incredibly complicated, one of their most important tasks is in essence simple; to assess whether the information received from our senses matches some previous experience. If there is a match, the brain instantly initiates its previous response - which might, for example, be to feel anxious. It does this without conscious input, or even unconscious evaluation of whether the previous response was helpful or negative: the default position is that the previous response kept you safe before and it will keep you safe again.

In BWRT we go through a simple process to enable the brain to replace the unhelpful response - like anxiety - with a response which we would prefer to have.

The BWRT Institute describes BWRT as follows:

'BWRT' stands for 'BrainWorking Recursive Therapy', a modern model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It uses a totally logical, practical and down-to-earth working method in which it's not necessary for you to talk about anything you would rather not discuss - the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT is unlike any other therapy you might have heard of or read about, using the latest discoveries in neuroscience coupled with your own unique brain processes to help you get better. 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.
