Q: BWRT® sounds too good to be true, does it always work?
A: It is a very effective therapy, but there is not one therapy out there that will suit everybody. BWRT® comes very close!
Q: BWRT® gets rapid results but do the results last?
A: When your problem is resolved it generally stays resolved. On rare occasions there may be a partial return, it can be easily dealt with.
Q: How much effort will I have to make?
A: No therapy is a ‘magic wand’ treatment. As your therapist, I would be committed to helping you to achieve the change/s you wish to make. Therefore, for a successful outcome, you too will need to be prepared to commit 100% to the process and make maximum effort. You will obviously need to be willing to change and therefore, most importantly, will not have been coerced by somebody else into attending.
Q: How many sessions will I need?
A: The number of sessions will vary and be determined by the type of issue or issues that you wish to change. Often, many straightforward single issues can be dealt with in only one session but generally speaking between one and four sessions may be required. However, more serious or complex issues may well require more than four sessions to complete the work.
Q: How does it actually work?
A: We start by ‘freezing’ the troubling thoughts then we employ a technique called ‘Recursive Looping’ to condition the way the brain responds to triggers. BWRT® is the first and only therapy known to work exactly in this manner, making it one of the fastest and most effective therapies around. Your therapist will explain in a little more detail the process to you before the commencement of any work.
Q: Will I have homework to do?
A: No, not for straightforward issues. With some of the more complex issues which require approximately four sessions to resolve, there would be a small amount of homework but it generally only takes a few minutes a day to complete.
Q: I’ve heard that my GP might have to be contacted if I have BWRT®, if so, why is that?
A: Not all presenting issues require contact with your GP. However, there are just a few issues where an underlying medical condition could be responsible for what you are experiencing. Therefore, that possibility would need to be investigated by your GP, prior to therapy taking place. This is for your benefit, as proceeding with therapy in these cases, could mask or conceal any underlying medical disorder thereby delaying its discovery.
There are some deeper issues such as eating-disorders, drug addiction and alcohol or substance abuse which would require you to have a consultation with your doctor prior to therapy. Therapy cannot go ahead until this has been carried out.
Q: Are all BWRT practitioners properly trained?
A: Yes, they are. All BWRT® Therapists (Practitioner and Therapist means the same thing) have to undergo a full assessment of their skills, they also receive full mentoring support provided by the BWRT® Institute. Additionally, they agree to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and commit to maintaining and updating their skills through Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
