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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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: There are no lasting side effects. 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.
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 employed.
Q: IS BWRT® accredited by any official society?
A: Yes, by The British BrainWorking research Society (https://www.bbrs.org.uk)
Q: Can it work for things like alcoholism, gambling and anorexia?
A: It can, but those are complex issues and it's impossible to state definitely that it will work every time. Having said that, the success rate is very high and the relapse rate very low.
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: We use natural psychological processes to 'recondition' neural pathways that lead to unwanted behaviour. 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 reroute synapses to a benign or preferred response.
Q: I have a question that's not listed here - what do I do now?
A: Go to our Facebook 'BWRT Introduction' page and ask questions - there are practitioners and trainers online to help you!
Or you can get in touch via our 'Contact' page and we will do our best to help.
