Essex-based mental health institute expands its therapeutic training into India

The BWRT Institute has expanded its ground-breaking mental health therapy training into India.

Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT®) was created in 2011 by Essex-based Terence Watts, a psychotherapist and Fellow with the Royal Society of Medicine.

BWRT is based in neuroscience and is designed to get a fast and permanent fix from issues such as anxiety, phobias, fears, anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

BWRT training in India is now available both online and face-to-face classroom training and is open to all Indian therapists, counsellors, doctors, psychiatrists, psychotherapists and special educators and is provided by leading psychotherapist, Sumedha Bhise, based in Bangalore.

BWRT works by ‘freezing’ unwanted patterns and behaviour and creating new neural pathways with a more positive response which is chosen by the individual.

It’s a powerful style of working that can often dissolve problems in less than four sessions. Because of the rapid nature of the therapy, there are huge potential savings for health care. Patients can be treated faster, in fewer sessions, which can cut waiting lists.

In 2013 Watts started teaching BWRT to psychotherapists worldwide. Ten years on and BWRT has accredited mentors offering training in South Africa, US, Australia, Denmark, New Zealand, Albania and now India with Bulgaria opening soon.

Sumedha Bhise, Psychotherapist and BWRT Accredited Mentor and Trainer says, “I’m excited to bring BWRT to India. I have been a certified therapist since 1998 and deeply involved in the world of BWRT since 2015. As a BWRT Mentor and Trainer, I’m certified in all levels of BWRT, and have a deep familiarity with all aspects of this amazing therapy.”

Terence Watts, Founder of The BWRT Institute says, “BWRT is fast becoming the therapy of choice for doctors, psychiatrists, psychotherapists around the world because of how quickly and effectively it works to address the clients’ needs. Sumedha is a well-respected psychotherapist and I’m delighted that she is now training therapists in India.”
