Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT®)

Brain Working Recursive Therapy is an innovative new concept of psychotherapy, completely unlike anything that has gone before it.

It’s unique and inspired by the research of Benjamin Libet. In 1983 Benjamin Libet (2003 winner of the Virtual Nobel Prize in Psychology from University of Klagenfurt), Professor at University of California ran a series of experiments that proved we do not have free will in the way we think of it, which is precisely why we all encounter so many “Why on earth did I do/say that?” or “Why do I have to feel like this?” moments.

In 1983, Libet’s experimental research, showed that there is a measurable wait (more than 1/3 second) between the moment the brain commences to act upon any stimulus and our becoming aware of that action - in other words, by the time we know what we are doing, we’re already doing it and it is old news as far as the physical brain is concerned. Remarkably, even the decision to change your mind about what you are doing is made before conscious awareness of that decision.

BWRT® allows us the opportunity to work in that interval between the commencement of an action and conscious awareness; this allows us the opportunity to negate destructive thought patterns as if they were never there.

BWRT® has been designed to remove emotive responses from memories that are deeply troubling and create new, adaptive neural pathways that do not have the old undesirable emotional responses attached to it.
