Here are a few of the questions you might want to ask...
Q: Do you have to have a degree to study BWRT®?
A: No - as long as you have received adequate training in psychological health (including hypnotherapy and psychotherapy) you will be considered for training. And if not, we also have a 'Total Newbies' course. If you are intending to work in South Africa, you will need to be registered as a psychologist or counsellor - contact email@example.com to find out more.
Q: Do you have to do loads of study and case studies before you can use BWRT® with clients?
A: Not at all! As soon as your training is completed, even it's only at Level 1, you can use it straight away with your clients.
Q: I'm a quite new therapist. Will I find it difficult to learn?
A: Not in the least! We cover everything in absolute detail and because BWRT® is so different from any other therapy model, you will find yourself to be on equal terms with the other students.
Q: Are there any unpleasant side effects?
A: Some people feel slightly 'disconnected' for a few seconds - no longer - as the brain lets go of the problem at the end of the session. Then they feel great!
Q: How many sessions does a client have as a rule?
A: One of the great things about BWRT® is its speed. For any given presenting difficulty, BWRT® is generally faster than other therapy models.
Q: Does it last?
Q: Can it be used for performance enhancement?
A: It certainly can. Whether it's for athletics, business, relationships, sex, driving, exams or anything else where your client needs to give their best, BWRT can be effectively
Q: Can it work for things like alcoholism, gambling and eating disorders?
A: Yes - and as with the more simple issues such as phobias and anxieties, the success rate is very high and the relapse rate very low. For core identity problems of this sort, Level 2 of the training is usually needed.
Q: Does BWRT® use a trance state or anything similar?
A: No - it's a scientific process that works in an entirely different way from Hypnosis or similar. It uses no tapping, stroking, eye movement or fixation, lights, special sounds or anything similar.
Q: So what is the basis of it then?
A: Essentially, we stop the existing symptom trigger in its tracks - using the brain's natural response to anything traumatic or not understood - and use the client's own thought processes to reorganise neural pathways to create a benign or preferred response.
Q: Are there any scientific studies or trials?
A: Currently under way (as of 2022), via the University or Bergen, Norway: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34696777/ There was also a Ph.D. awarded in 2018, from Lincoln University, UK, where the research thesis was on the effectiveness of BWRT in non-complex trauma. It flew!
