The future of psychotherapy? Possibly…


‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a modern model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It uses a totally logical, practical and down-to-earth working method in which it’s not necessary for you to talk about anything you would rather not discuss – the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is unlike any other therapy you might have heard of or read about, using the latest discoveries in neuroscience coupled with your own unique brain processes to help you get better. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at



“I’ve had various different types of therapy over the years in an attempt to solve my debilitating lack of self-esteem.  I didn’t believe BWRT could be as fast and effective as the description seemed to suggest. How wrong I was!  Only 1 day after my second session I felt that I had completely changed – like I had discovered myself for the first time in 40 years. I’m still amazed that BWRT could be so effective, but it has been for me.  I am so grateful that I am now, finally, able to live up to my potential. Thank you Stu.”



“Stuart is an outstanding counsellor. He has helped me process some very confusing and difficult emotions and psychological issues deploying a multi-disciplinary approach to mental health. Stuart is very empathetic and has enabled me to trust him with some very tricky problems and this has helped me to develop a greater clarity of self understanding. With Stuart’s help I have found solutions and clarity where I had previously been weighed down by bottled up difficulties and confusion.”



“I suffered with anxiety and fear when motorway driving for 25 years. In the last 5 years it has been impossible for me to do. After one BWRT session with Stuart, I was able to return to driving on the motorway with ease. I still find this incredible, but it seems like a permenant change. See you on the m5 👍🏻 Thank you Stuart”


I cant thank you enough

“Lately I’ve been a lot happier, and haven’t been panicking or even feeling anxious. I’ve also been sleeping very well (which is SO amazing) and I actually feel like I am living again. Thank you for all your help with the BWRT sessions as I can now look forward to my future. I don’t know how, but you have honestly changed my life. It feels like I am no longer dragging the past around with me and I can get on with the life I want – just like the one I imagined in our sessions. I owe you the world and work is going so well they are like family to me. I cant thank you enough.”


Highly recommended

I was sceptical that anything could help me with my anxiety because I have had it for so long. Stuart’s approach made me feel safe and relaxed and after only three sessions with him using BWRT I can honestly say that I feel totally different. I no longer feel anxiety when I wake up, I feel more confident in social situations and like I have a new lease of life. I am so grateful I found Stuart and that he helped me with BWRT. I would recommend him to anyone who has any problems they are struggling with.


Life Changing

Stu helped me to work through a very stressful period of my life in an honest, compassionate and non-judgemental way. I now feel empowered to navigate my future as a stronger and happier person. My sessions with Stu have been nothing short of life-changing. Thanks for everything. 


Fear of needles

I had a complete fear of injections or having blood taken, which I have had since my teens. I wanted to have my Covid jabs but I was simply unable to consider going because of my intense fear. It wasn’t just the injection, but the lead up and being in the room – I was convinced I would pass out. Stuart spent some time working with me so that I was able to get some clarity on things, which identified other issues I hadn’t considered. We worked through these using BWRT and then the needle phobia. I booked myself in for my Covid jab the next week, and I an delighted to say I actually found myself looking forward to it! I turned up, had the jab, and went home without any anxiety at all. I remain completely amazed by this and very thankful. I have recommended Stuart to my friends and family. Thank you.


Highly recommended

“As someone who has tried previous counselling services before, Stuart’s approach has by far been the best. Through our sessions I’ve become aware of the source/s behind my issues and able to resolve them. Stuart is very professional, always creating a non judgemental and comfortable space for us to talk. I would highly recommended his service to anyone needing it.”


Quality of Life Improved

Stuart handled my issues with a calm, professional attitude. After one session of BWRT I was relieved of many years of severe struggles with an eating disorder, also this method swiftly solved several of my behaviour problems. My quality of life has been improved by the counselling sessions I have received. Thank you.


Thank You

I was really struggling with health anxiety. Stuart is very easy to talk to, no ‘psycho-babble’ and helped me to get to the core of my worries very quickly. He managed to help me extract my innermost hidden emotional feelings and turn them into logical rational feelings after a few sessions, bringing me huge relief.
I have, and will continue to recommend Stuart.  Thank you


Would recommend to anyone

“I have suffered with severe claustrophobia since childhood and when I was told by my GP I had to go for a CT scan, I was petrified. The last time I had one I had a full panic attack. After one session with Stuart using BWRT I was able to attend the scan and felt completely calm and relaxed. I was amazed, and so grateful. I would recommend BWRT to anyone”


The science behind BWRT… a quick overview.

The brainstem and cerebellum together form the lizard brain that evolved in our earliest ancestors around 575 million years ago. Its purpose was to trigger action on any threat to survival. It was purely instinctive with no capacity for thought or reason. If something was a threat, it would always be a threat and in those days that was a fact.

The next evolutionary development was the paleomammalian complex that appeared in the first tiny mammals, with a much more sophisticated limbic system. The lizard brain had already existed for around 425 million years by then, and this new part didn’t replace it – it was added ‘on top’ of it. It’s much more complex but still has no conscious awareness or ability for thought.  

It’s probable that the latest version of our modern brain, the neomammalian complex, with all its conscious thinking and reasoning power appeared only about 300,000 years ago, on top of the earlier structure. It truly is an amazing organ… but it is still motivated by that lizard brain, which contains about 85% of the total nerve pathways in the entire brain! 

And here’s the science. Thoughts and impulses are bioelectric and travel slowly in the brain, so do not instantly appear everywhere at the same time. If the lizard brain encounters something that was dangerous once it sends a ‘danger’ code to the Amygdala which then generates an emotional response felt in various degrees of anxiety. 

But it takes time to get through all those neural pathways in the lizard brain and paleomammalian  complex to the conscious emotional brain… getting on for half-a-second in fact. And even if the threat is not valid (and there are hundreds of reasons why that might be the case) the reaction is already under way and cannot be consciously overridden. 

And that’s where BWRT comes in. It uses the lizard brain’s own processes to stop the impulse in its tracks long enough for the client to replace it with whatever they prefer before it reaches the amygdala. It doesn’t matter what the original trigger was – BWRT doesn’t need it. It works, it’s fast, and it lasts.

Fast and effective therapy


BWRT® was developed in 2011 by Terence Watts and is becoming ever more popular in both the UK and around the world because of its effectiveness and speed in treating a wide range of problems.

With BWRT®, the client doesn’t have to share anything personal with the therapist, something which might put them off speaking to a more traditional therapist. As long as they can identify how they are feeling about their problems, and how they would prefer to feel, BWRT® can be extremely and quickly effective.

BWRT® is a rapid form of therapy. Most problems are resolved within a single session and even complex issues are usually resolved in 4 or 5 sessions. This can have a significant advantage over other forms of therapy which can take months or even years to achieve similar results.
