  1. More articles are starting to appear in the media about BWRT and how well it can work to help people with problems that they may have experienced and put up with for many years. Brain Working Recursive Therapy can often make a real difference in a very short period of time. Practitioners are appearing across the word as well as in the Uk where this style of therapy began. As well as helping with fears and phobias, you can see the benefits with people suffering stress and anxiety for many reasons.

    I work via Skype worldwide as well as within the UK, but if you were looking for an American therapist then the latest article about BWRT shows that you can find someone to help you in more and more places.

    Jennifer Battaglino works in New York and this article was written after she spoke to reporter Jeanne Muchnick: Below is a summary of some of the interesting points...

    LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Jennifer Battaglino, a Larchmont-based psychotherapist in practice for more than 16 years, said she was always interested in exploring other realms besides just "talk therapy." Which is why, after about 10 years working primarily with hypnosis, she expanded into something that is relatively new in the U.S.

    Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT), which gets its name from the way the brain works and which originated in the U.K., is all about dealing with uncomfortable emotional or psychological triggers before a client is even aware of them.

    It's interesting to note that you can work with people both young and old with BWRT as many of us who have trained can testify..

    "Most other therapies work on the response after it has been generated, requiring you to tell the practitioner what you're thinking about but with BWRT, the problem is dealt with 'at source', before it even gets to the conscious mind," explained the New Rochelle mom of three.

    This science-based methodology works amazingly fast -- on kid as young as 10 -- and is a complete tool for helping people with a variety of issues including eating disorders, depression, anger, phobic response patterns, school and work problems and social phobias. A lot of the time, she said it will completely alleviate symptoms in a single session.

    What happens in a session: The practitioner will ask a few questions about your background and what has brought you to see him/her but will not ask you to reveal any secrets or intimate details of your life. "This is a totally private therapy in which you only have to be able to tell the practitioner how you feel and how you would like to feel instead," she said. "For instance, you might say something like: 'Social situations scare me half to death,' and the practitioner would then ask if you can think how you would like to feel instead."

    After using it -- she is one of a handful of those in the area performing this treatment -- she said it's possibly the most effective technique she's ever used. "The ability to experience consistent and significant relief so quickly is what makes BWRT so great," she said. "I love the look on my clients’ faces when they open their eyes and can’t find the negative emotion or old triggers that hindered them in some way. I get to help people achieve their goals and enjoy life."

    It's always good to read articles such as this one. I have been lucky enough to have Jen as my own practice partner and so we have together been able to explore how well BWRT can help people by adding to the skills and tools that we already have in our toolboxes. Jen across the pond in the US and me right here in the UK.

    Here's another article that mentions BWRT...This time it's actually one about me. 

    I was asked by a journalist if I could help her with a fear of flying and also a fear of going in lifts. You can read all about what happened below...

  2. Singer Adele has had another try at stopping smoking using hypnosis. It's not the first time she has tried this method but previously it just hasn't worked for her.

    What could be different this time?

    There have been reports previously about how she had visited various Harley Street Hypnotherapists to have quit smoking hypnosis and yet she always seemed to go back to smoking again. Personally as a therapist who would only agree to see someone that really wanted it to work I have written and spoken about why it wouldn't work before.

    In fact you can even watch a video where you can see Adele and her thoughts about it here...

    The problem was that she really didn't want it to work. If you don't want to stop then of course you won't. Hypnotherapy is very effective at helping people who really do want to quit, I know personally because before I started helping others I used it myself! The one thing it is unable to do is make you do something that you do not want to do. You can't make people act in ways that they don't want to.

    What's different about the Quit Smoking hypnosis for Adele this time? adele quit smoking hypnosis daily mail 2016

    The Mail reports that she had a secret visit to another Harley Street hypnotherapist before Christmas, and this time the way she has spoken about it sounds so much more positive.

    If you watched the video above you can hear her talking about how much she likes smoking and if you like something that much then why would you give it up?

    This time is really does sound like she is in a much more positive frame of mind.

    Once you start thinking about all the negatives of smoking and start to understand that you are not giving up smoking..but gaining health, extra cash and much better breath (and that is just the start!) then you can really see that it is a very positive thing.

    Talking to Rolling Stone Magazine she said..

    ‘I absolutely loved it, but it's not that f****** cool when I'm dying from a smoking-related illness and my kid is, like, devastated’.

    Often when someone looks at their children they can see that everyone benefits from them becoming a non smoker.

    The Daily Mail reported on the secret visits to hypnotherapist in Harley street saying..

    After losing her voice completely in 2011, cancelling shows and undergoing surgery, she was told by doctors to quit her habit or face the end of her career.

    She had a £295 session with Harley Street hypnotist Susan Hepburn in 2014 in an attempt to give up for good but relapsed.

    Her trip to Max Kirsten’s Knightsbridge clinic came just months before the release of her smash hit single Hello.

    It may have cost her £500 this time but of course that is a great investment in her future.

    If you don't want to go to Harley Street and pay Harley street prices then hypnotherapy to quit smoking can be a lot more affordable for you. You can read all about how it works here:
