What is BWRT®

‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. Like many other modern therapies, it allows a ‘core of privacy’ so that you do not have to divulge anything you would rather not talk about – in fact, the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is a completely new and different therapy based on the latest discoveries about the way the brain works and how it affects our moods, behaviour and emotions. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at

Comments from other BWRT® professionals:

“In all my extensive years as a Therapist, with all my different modalities of counselling, BWRT is my No.1 go to therapy. It never fails to astound me. It’s transformed the world of therapy. Where else can anyone get immediate relief from PTSD in one session and be able to be clean and sober from addiction within 4 sessions?”

Professional Feedback

As a newly qualified BWRT practitioner, I still stand amazed (and slightly dazed) after immediate success – to put in context, with a very difficult resistant issue – thank you for this incredible tool

Professional Feedback

BWRT just makes sense! It harnesses the natural way our brains work to help rather than hinder our thinking, feelings and behaviour. It’s truly wonderful to watch the positive changes my clients experience. The therapy speaks for itself in terms of the high number of word of mouth referrals I receive and has revolutionised the way I work.

Frequently Asked Questions

BWRT Sessions2021-08-26T23:03:20+01:00

BWRT is an amazing type of therapy which can resolve problems quickly. In many cases, only one session is required for the therapy, following an initial session where we will discuss how BWRT works and focus on the problem(s) which you want to work on.

In some cases, where a client has a mental health diagnosis,  it may be necessary to check with their GP to ensure that BWRT is suitable.

Sessions are ‘content free’, which means that you don’t need to tell me the details of the problem you want to work on – this is important as it may have stopped you from speaking to a counsellor in the past. All that is required is for you to be able to know how you would prefer to feel.

Will I be judged?2021-08-26T22:34:54+01:00

Quite simply, no.

I will never judge my clients or anything that they bring to the sessions. This is essential as the client must feel safe in the sessions so that they can discuss anything they need to.

Mobile Phones & devices2021-08-26T22:35:39+01:00

I ask that all mobile devices, including smart watches, are turned off (airplane mode, not vibrate) during the session to avoid distractions.

In exceptional circumstances it may be necessary to keep phones on – waiting for a call from children etc.  In this case, please let me know.


Like everyone else, Counsellors need to take breaks from work. This means that there will be times during the year when I will not be available, or contactable.

I do not work over the Christmas holiday, from Christmas Eve to the first working day of the new year.

Our sessions will be carefully planned to minimise disruption.


I hold an Honours degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy, awarded by the University of Worcester.

I am a BWRT Registered Practitioner, trained by Terence Watts, the creator of BWRT.

I do lots of continuing professional development (CPD) work and am always trying to keep up to date with my knowledge.


I have comprehensive Professional Indemnity Insurance provided by an industry leading company.

Chance Meetings2021-08-26T22:40:52+01:00

Sometimes we may ‘bump into’ each other outside of the Counselling room.  Your confidentiality is very important, so unless you acknowledge me first I will not acknowledge you. This will avoid us both having to make any explanations to family/friends we may be with at the time.

Drugs & Alcohol2021-08-26T22:41:19+01:00
For counselling to be effective it is helpful to be in touch with your feelings and emotions, which becomes very difficult when under the influence of non-prescribed drugs or alcohol.
Clients who arrive under the influence of non-prescribed drugs or alcohol may be asked to leave. Please note that a charge will be made for the cancelled session.
It goes without saying that you must not drive to a session having consumed alcohol or any drugs which could affect your ability to drive within legal limits. I would not want you to drive home in these circumstances and I would be obliged to contact the authorities in order to preserve your, and others, safety.

To maintain best practice, all counsellors should receive regular supervision (talking with another professional about our practice).  This is a vital part of counselling and helps to maintain the the high standard our clients expect, and to keep counsellors safe.

During my supervision sessions I may discuss my case load, but I will never reveal any information that might identify my clients in any way, thus preserving confidentiality.

Supervision is a means of ensuring ‘quality control’,  for learning and development, and to ensure we work ethically and within our levels of competence.

Record Keeping2021-08-26T22:42:16+01:00
I keep brief notes of all our sessions. These notes are kept electronically and encrypted. You may see these notes on request.
I will not release these notes without your permission, unless ordered to do so by a Court.
How long do the sessions last?2021-08-26T22:42:39+01:00

My counselling sessions last for 1 hour in total.  I will alert you when we have 10 minutes remaining, so that we can make sure the session ends safely, and to allow time to arrange your next session.

It is really important that you arrive on time (in person, on Zoom or on the phone). Your session will begin at the agreed time even if you are late.  I will always try to finish the session on time. This will be fully discussed and agreed as part of our contract.

For Zoom, please join the waiting room before the session start time and I will admit you at the start time.

For phone sessions, I will usually call you at the start time. Please make sure you are ready in an area with a good signal if using your mobile.

If, for any reason, I am delayed in starting the session, I will add extra time to the end to make up for it.

Will the things I say be confidential?2021-08-26T22:43:28+01:00

Yes, absolutely.

All counsellors and psychotherapists abide by a professional code of ethics, set by our membership bodies and this includes confidentiality. I understand and respect the need for complete privacy and discretion when looking at sensitive issues.

However, if it seems there is a high risk of serious harm to yourself or someone else, then I will usually discuss that further with you, to see if anyone else might need to be informed (such as your GP).

If you tell me something that I am required to divulge under oath in a Court of Law, then I must do so.

For those under 18, there are additional rules about confidentiality to conform to the safeguards of UK Child Protection laws.

We will talk in more detail about confidentiality at our initial assessment session, and confidentiality is a key part of our contract.
