About BWRT

BWRT® stands for 'BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®'. It is a scientifically based model of psychology created by UK psychotherapist Terence Watts. The method benefits from being 90% content-free, which means that it isn't necessary to reveal deeply personal information or spend great lengths describing your problem. We use BWRT in a completely conscious state. It is science-based and straightforward, only requiring you to know what you want to change in your life for it to be successful. 

BWRT gets its name from the brain's ability to be continually reassessing the environment and making necessary adjustments. During therapy, we use these changes and adjustments to thinking that lead to fast-acting but long-term self-improvement. 

How does it work?
The basis of the technique is taking a bad habit or emotional reaction to an issue and replacing it with a preferred outcome. Significantly few people realise that when faced with a situation that your mind has already decided how to react BEFORE you have a chance to intervene consciously. An example of this is when someone throws a ball, we automatically catch it. Our brain has decided on appropriate action before it comes into our awareness. That is why we experience repeated frustration in the way we respond in certain situations. 

BWRT® is a science-based way of working that deals with uncomfortable emotional or psychological triggers before they come into awareness. Many methodologies work on responding to a stimulus after it has come to our attention. BWRT® deals with the problem before it enters awareness in the conscious mind, at its source. You are left feeling better and able to react more appropriately. BWRT® is a very fast, highly effective, and lasting, often success is achieved between 1 and 4 sessions.

Get to Know Me


Since 2000, I have been creating fast, lasting change. Allowing clients to break through obstacles that were holding them back in life, eradicate unwanted behaviours, lose weight, build confidence and self esteem and helping them to find the release from anxiety and depression.   Life is far too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. With cutting edge psychological tools, let me help you to break through whatever is holding you back and give you a bright new future.

I have lived with a chronic condition for most of my life.  It held me back in my younger years greatly.    In 2000  I found Reiki, this was life changing and became Reiki Master in 2002.  I began the journey of therapist and coaching 2005 by training in Hypnosis and NLP with Paul McKenna and Richard Bandler, co creater of NLP. My new skills turned my life around  and very quickly people started to notice and asked me to help them too. I continued my training in hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, coaching and mindfulness. My training with Terence Watts, the founder of BWRT(Brainworking Recursive Therapy) has created massive change for both myself and my clients, many believe this technique will turn the therapy world on its head.  

I now have an awesome life, seeing clients 1 to 1 in person at the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre in Edinburgh City Centre, in Kirkliston, on the edge of the city which is close to the M8 and M9, and by video call.  I run groups, workshops and retreats at home and abroad.  If like me you want to make rapid changes allowing you to live the life that you want book a free 30 minute call.
