A pioneering therapy revolutionising the world of psychology in South Africa could be the answer to the UK’s ticking time bomb of mental illness sparked by the pandemic.

Brain working recursive therapy (BWRT) is the go-to therapy for many psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists working daily with victims of gang violence, rape and muggings in South Africa.

Now BWRT creator Terence Watts is looking to use the ground-breaking treatment to tackle the tsunami of mental health problems triggered by COVID-19 in the UK.

Mr Watts, who founded and runs the BWRT Institute London wants to help patients suffering from anxiety, depression and stress, as a result of the pandemic, get better faster.

He said: ‘BWRT is an immensely powerful style of working that can dissolve problems in as little as one treatment with no medication required.

‘Rather than spending months and years in traditional therapy like CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) which has become the norm, BWRT is much faster and is content-free so therapists don’t need to know what triggered your problem which is significant for victims of abuse who are often re-traumatised by traditional therapies.’

BWRT is used by 2,500+ psychologists and therapists worldwide helping victims of crime including rape and domestic violence and patients suffering from addiction, imposter syndrome, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

In many cases, problems can be solved in less than four treatment sessions and it has become the therapy of choice for health professionals working with police officers and prison inmates in South Africa.

Mr Watts believes BWRT could be the cure for the rising tide in demand for mental health services across the UK because it works extremely quickly and produces long-term results with mental health conditions that can otherwise be notoriously difficult, time-consuming and expensive to treat.

Mr Watts, Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, says: ‘The UK is facing a second pandemic of mental ill-health as a result of what’s happened with COVID-19. Everyone from frontline medics to individuals shielding at home is at risk. That’s why it’s important to have a fast, effective and value-for-money therapy at the ready to tackle the mental health avalanche that is coming our way.’
