It offers a flexible blend of theory, case studies, and supervised practical application, equipping practitioners to implement BWRT immediately in their practice. All learning materials, as well as teas and lunches for in-person training, are included in the training fee.

Equipping the practitioner with skills to implement BWRT Level 1 to treat a variety of mental health conditions.

BrainWorking® Recursive Therapy is an innovative concept of working with negative and destructive thought patterns, completely unlike anything that has gone before it. It presents an entirely new view of the subconscious mind – one that is extremely ‘user friendly’ and easy for the client to understand – as well as an elegant way of providing psychotherapy that gets easily beneath the Conscious Critical Faculty.

A major ‘plus’ for BWRT® is that it can used with total safety via Skype, Zoom or similar media where it is every bit as effective as face-to-face sessions. BWRT® really is the therapy of the future!

It’s not a derivative of hypnotherapy and although it works to release what have always been considered to be ‘trapped’ emotional responses, it’s ‘content free’ in that the client doesn’t have to tell the therapist anything they wish to keep private. Suitable for all personality types, including those who are automatically resistant, it excels when help is needed for the psychological triggers for a huge variety of issues including (all in Level One training):

  • Commitment Anxiety
  • Phobias and Fears
  • PTSD
  • C- PTSD
  • Success Inhibition
  • Fear of failure
  • All types of Performance Anxiety
  • Self Worth/Self-Confidence Issues
  • Fear of Authority
  • Relationship Issues
  • Grief

Many practitioners have also reported that BWRT® can provide effective help in association with conventional medical care with such issues as:

  • Binge eating/drinking
  • OCD
  • Some dependencies
  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Self-harming
  • Suicide ideation
  • Most depressions

Based around the latest discoveries in neuroscience, this technique provides flawless and easy-to-understand explanations of why we are apparently powerless to stop doing things that are destructive to us and our well-being. It allows effortless ‘reprogramming’ of learned negative constructs and even makes it possible to change emotional memory and associated complex behaviour patterns.


‘BrainWorking® Recursive Therapy’ is not in any way a ‘rehash’ of WSN, SD, CBT, NLP, EFT, TFT, EMDR, Hypnosis or anything else – it is a unique and exciting concept, unlike anything you will ever have done before.

The training reveals:

  • Why an event from years ago is still current as the brain is concerned
  • Why the subconscious is not necessarily trying to look after our best interests
  • How the the brain starts making decisions without our input – and what we can do about it
  • How mental processes travel 50 meters in the brain before we become aware of them
  • How to deal effectively with the ‘worry loop’ that stops people in their tracks
  • How destructive responses can be stopped and destroyed before they r each awareness
  • And, of course, how to conduct this therapy from start to finish!

Perhaps the best thing of all is that this is a fast therapy. During research and testing it has resolved deep-seated issues that have been present for as long as the client can remember, and taken only a few of sessions to do it. It’s ideal for use as a standalone therapy or when it transpires there is still some ‘stuff’ creating destructive or negative responses.
