What is BWRT® – Brain Working Recursive Therapy®?

A revolutionary model of psychology and psychopathology that is in line with contemporary neuroscience thinking is called BWRT®. It is the innovation of Terence Watts (MCGI). BWRT® is a brief therapy that consistently focuses on finding solutions and the fact that it is unique, wholly scientific, and operates quite differently from slower therapies like CBT, counselling, hypnosis, or similar is maybe its most significant feature. The fight-or-flight reaction is the basis of many of the issues that we face today, including anxiety, stress, GAD, phobias, PTSD, and trauma. BWRT® is a brief therapy that aims to permanently alter how your brain responds to stimuli.

Is BWRT® right for me?

Anyone who wants to work on a problem but is uncomfortable revealing their past or is unable to do so since it would be too traumatic for them is a suitable candidate for BWRT. BWRT does have the advantage that it enables you to work through painful previous experiences without ever having to discuss them or even inform your therapist about them. All they need to know is what you want to work on, like “I worry all of the time.”

Is BWRT too good to be true?

That’s what many people believe – but they’re completely, totally, 100% WRONG!

The reason they make the mistake is that they think about how other therapies work and decide that BWRT cannot be much different and therefore it’s all hype! But it’s not hype, and you cannot assess BWRT by comparing it with other therapies, because those other therapies all work in a style that was created more than 130 years ago. That style is to try to get past conscious thought and reasoning into ‘the subconscious’. They work but it takes time, and the conscious mind often gets in the way, creating what therapists usually call ‘resistance’. BWRT is different. It uses natural brain processes to get straight to work with the part of the nervous system where all problems originate – and because of this, conscious thought and reasoning aren’t part of the therapy and cannot get in the way. If you think of a nervous symptom like anxiety as being the product of an electrical circuit (it actually is!) then other therapies seek to turn off the switch… but BWRT completely shuts down that part of the generator so it can’t start up again.

So, the problem is no more. There’s no need to manage the symptom by tapping, breathing in a special way, thinking a special thought, pinching thumb and finger together or any other coping strategy – the problem is gone. Absent. Finished. For good. In the nine years since it was first taught, BWRT has become the therapy of choice for thousands of practitioners that include psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors and many other psychological health practitioners around the world. They’ve all discovered that far from being too good to be true, BWRT genuinely ‘does what it says on the tin’!
