All our practitioners have been personally trained and vetted by the originator of BWRT® or others appointed because of their high-level of expertise in this style of working, so you can be certain of working with a professional therapist. Only members who have passed a professional assessment of their skills will be able to show you a certificate confirming their BWRT® certification. Their name appearing on this register indicates only that they have trained in the process, not that they have passed a professional assessment.
If you are NHS Medical Staff, a University Student, Armed Forces personnel (current or past) or on State Benefits, you might be eligible for professional therapy at no charge. This is a new scheme and practitioners are being added all the time. Click here to find out more.
Many practitioners have elected to continue with further professional development and training and have registered with The British BrainWorking Research Society which indicates their commitment to professional advancement - these practitioners are designated as a 'Registered Practitioner'. This does not necessarily indicate that they have a higher level of skill, though it does show that they will be aware of the latest therapy techniques.
There are currently three 'skill levels' in BWRT® indicated by the designation 'Level 1' or 'Level 2' or 'Level 3' on their diplayed logo. Some practitioners may still be showing the older 'Certified BWRT Professional' and/or an 'Advanced Practitioner' logo - they are Level 1 and Level 2 Practitioners who have opted not to join The British BrainWorking Research Society and there is no indication of any lack of skill.
All practitioners are also skilled in other styles of working so that on the very rare occasion that this style of work is not the best for your difficulty, they will be able to advise accordingly and offer an alternative therapy.
During a session of BWRT®, the practitioner will ask you a few questions about your background and what has brought you to see them. The more complex the siutation, the more questions they might ask but they will not ask you to reveal any secrets or intimate details of your life that you do not wish to divulge. It's fair to say, though, they will need to know something of your background to ensure BWRT is the right therapy for you and will advise accordingly.
This is essentially a private therapy in which you only have to be able to tell the practitioner how you feel and how you would like to feel instead. For instance, you might say something like: "Social situations scare me half to death!" and the practitioner would then ask if you can think how you would like to feel instead. If you can, they will get straight to work; if you can't, they will help you decide - and again, you will never have to reveal any details you really don't want to.
It really is that simple and that private!
BWRT® doesn't use hypnosis or anything that might be considered to be mystical or unscientific - it is a science-based, totally grounded methodology that deals with uncomfortable emotional or psychological triggers before you are even aware of them. Most other therapies work on the response after it has been generated, requiring you to tell the practitioner what you're thinking about - but with BWRT® the problem is dealt with 'at source', before it even gets to the concious mind.
The practitioner wil explain fully how the process works and although, as in all work of this sort, you have a vital part to play in the process, it is a very easy part - in fact you will have to do very little more than keep focused on how you want to be when the work is complete... and that could be the same day you started!
Please note that if your presenting problem could have a medical basis, BWRT practitioners will work only in conjunction with and alongside conventional medical care.Your practitioner will be able to advise you further if necessary.
All BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® professional therapists have been properly trained in this specific therapy and hold certification to show this. If a therapist does not hold such certification, they may have not been officially trained by the Institute of BrainWorking Recursive Therapy and may not be genuine BWRT® Professionals.
