A Step at a Time Therapies with Nicky Edwards


Did you ever wonder……

Why we sometimes can’t stop ourselves doing things.

Why we sometimes feel that we just cannot do something we would really like to.

Why we so often limit ourselves from getting on with life.

Why we sometimes give up on something without even trying properly to do it.

Why we sometimes fear something when there’s no real reason to do so.

Why some situations ‘trigger’ uncomfortable feelings, even though we have no idea why.

Why therapy doesn’t always work as we want it to.

What is it?

BWRT® stands for BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®, it is a new model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI, it’s a totally confidential method that does not require you to reveal your private information or personal secrets to your therapist, and is carried out in a completely conscious state. It doesn’t use hypnosis or any mystical concepts – it is completely logical, practical and down-to-earth and only needs you to know what you want to change in your life for it to be completely successful. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT and all must adhere to a strict ethical code. You can read more at http://www.bwrt.org.

BWRT® (BrainWorking Recursive Therapy) gets its name from the way the brain works, in its ability to be continually reassessing the environment and making adjustments as necessary, utilizing the treatment the adjustments made to thinking lead to fast-acting but long-term self-improvement. BWRT releases trapped emotional issues like the methodologies of hypnotherapy, however it benefits from working on a principle of being nearly 90% content free, and you do not need to spend hours telling me about the problem you were having, my work is completed using an outline and the answers to a few key questions.

This exciting therapy is a completely conscious therapy (no trance work as you would find in hypnotherapy). This works brilliantly for those who would love to experience the benefits of hypnotherapy type treatments but are held back and resistant because the concept of a trance and relaxation does not suit them. The BWRT treatment is highly effective and fast! Its ability to be able to cut off the old emotional responses to issues allows you to feel back in control and at peace having developed your own chosen ‘new’ response to the previous issue, which allows you to resolve issues in as little as 1-2 sessions!

How does it work?

The principle of the therapy is that you can take the bad habit or emotional reaction you have to an issue and replace it with a preferred outcome. What few people realize is that when faced with a situation your mind has already made a decision about how to react BEFORE you have a chance to consciously intervene – which is why you’ll find yourself repeatedly getting frustrated with a situation and thinking ‘why did I do that?” after you did it!

BWRT® doesn’t use hypnosis or anything that might be considered to be mystical – it is a science-based, totally grounded methodology that deals with uncomfortable emotional or psychological triggers before you are even aware of them. Whilst many therapies work on the response after it has been generated with BWRT® the problem is dealt with ‘at source’, before it even gets to the conscious mind. Which leaves you feeling better and reacting in a way that feels more appropriate.

What happens in a treatment?

During a BWRT session YOU are totally responsible for changing your response to your issues using the BWRT therapist as a catalyst to creating new neural pathways to bypass your old responses. As long as you have the ability to visualise images and recall memories you will be astounded by the results of this treatment.

So, for example, if you experience social anxiety when visiting new places, you can replace this with the calmness you normally have in familiar places and remove the old response the main point to remember is that you cannot replace your unwanted response with an implausible response (e.g. you are not able to change your personality or have an outcome that is incongruent with you as a person

During a session of BWRT®, I will ask you a few questions about your background and what has brought you to see me – but you will not be asked to reveal any secrets or intimate details about your life. This is a totally 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
