BWRT : Brainworking Recursive Therapy

BWRT® is a neuroscience-based therapy that I use to effectively resolve psychological and emotional distress. It has been designed to remove upsetting feelings from bad memories and to create new adaptive neural pathways without the undesirable emotional responses attached to those memories. Neural pathways are extended to create new patterns in the brain.


What happens in a BWRT session?

If you’ve had any kind of therapy or counselling session, you’ll know it can sometimes be awkward, frustrating or even traumatic, as your brain mulls over problems, past and present.

With BWRT, you don’t need to discuss the cause or root of the problem in much detail at all, making the experience a lot more comfortable.

A BWRT session usually takes around an hour. During the session, the psychologist will ask you to focus on the thing you don’t like about how you’re behaving and feeling and shift your focus to how you would rather feel. Essentially you will freeze the response before it goes past your limbic part of your brain – rather than letting the action or emotion form.

Acting at this crucial, innate position in your brain, BWRT allows you to create a more empowering – but still realistic reaction, replacing those older fears or insecurities. It takes that false, scared or limited personality away and trades it with who you really want to be. In essence, it’s a natural and practical form of therapy, and the best thing is, the change comes completely from within you.
