About BWRT Yorkshire

Welcome to BWRT Yorkshire

BWRT Yorkshire is dedicated to helping people overcome obstacles in life, whatever that may be. Therapy does not always have to mean that something is wrong. Sometimes, it is simply a case that you want to make changes but you are not sure how to do that. If you want to make changes in your life then BWRT® might be the solution for you. Perhaps you want to lose weight or stop smoking. Perhaps you feel that your life is being held back by phobias, low confidence or lack of self-esteem. If you feel you have any beliefs or actions that are limiting what you want to get out of life, then we might be able to help you move forward.

Therapy sessions usually take place on a one-to-one basis from clinics in Skipton, Harrogate or Northallerton. We also offer Skype appointments online for those people who live further afield or are unable to visit a clinic for any reason.


All BWRT® Practitioners must be registered with the Institute of BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (MIBWRT) and will be able to show you a current membership certificate. Only registered practitioners are entitled to display the offical seal on their website and other promotional materials. John and Heather are both Advanced BWRT® Practitioners, having been trained directly by Terence Watts, the founder of BWRT®, and area some of the first practitioners of this method in the Yorkshire area.
