Common Queries

Will I be hypnotised during the therapy?

You will be in a conscious 'awake state,' hypnotherapy is not used during BWRT.

How long does each therapy session take?

Each therapy session usually takes around 50 minutes, I will extend the session by up to 10 minutes if I think it's necessary and beneficial to you to do so.

Do I need to go over my past and or talk about things I maybe don't feel comfortable discussing?

The therapy is 'content free' which means that you do not have to even tell the therapist any details of the issue you are seeking help for, unless of course you want to!

How many sessions will I need?

Generally issues are resolved in between one and three sessions and this is dependent on your specific issue and other factors that may influence the number of sessions you need.

What does the therapy session entail?

The therapist will talk you through each step of the therapy and all you will be required to do is listen to the therapist and follow some instructions.  The therapist will do most of the talking from here and you will be able to relax, listen and absorb the positive changes taking place...

Is the therapy guaranteed to work?

No therapy is guaranteed to be 100% effective in all cases but BWRT has a proven high success rate and has helped many people from all over the world.

Is the therapy effective online rather than face-to-face?

Yes BWRT has shown to be just as effective online by video call as it is face-to-face.  Phone sessions are also highly effective.

Are there any reasons why BWRT wouldn't be suitable for me?

Sometimes we are not ready to 'let go' of a particular issue, maybe someone makes us uncomfortable and we don't like communicating with them but perhaps there is an underlying reason that we are resistant to changing the negative feelings or behaviours...for example we could be holding on to anger and resentment towards a person which is stopping us from letting go of the presenting issue we have when dealing with them!  Under these circumstances further exploration of the clients issue may be needed and an additional protocol used along with the standard protocol normally used to help with the issue.  There may be rare occasions when a client is not prepared or ready to 'let go' of what is causing them to be resistant against the therapy and if this is the case then the therapist will be honest and not carry out or continue with the therapy if they do not envisage it will be a success.

Will I feel upset during or after the therapy?

There are times as with the majority of therapies when the client can encounter strong emotions for example when they think about how their issue has affected them when it has been at it's worst.  The therapist will be able to reassure you and support you if you experience an emotional reaction. 
After the therapy it is usual to feel emotional wellness, relaxed and refreshed!
