Having avoided co-facilitating the psycho-education groups at work for 15 months and then experiencing an extremely anxiety provoking, ‘on the spot’ presentation at Uni, I realised that I needed to make it work.
Initially, I considered practising what I preach, that is graded exposure…
Now, although I truly believe that this can and does work wonders, it was a no go for me because there was no way of ensuring the numbers for such groups started off small and gradually increased. Nor did it seem fair to give a colleague most of the work just so I could step in for a minimal amount of time. I also deliberated presenting in front of people I know, however I decided that was not going to effectively mimic the same environment and circumstances.
With much anticipation over the forthcoming groups, I decided to turn to you.
I had sparse knowledge of BWRT, I realised it was a relatively new practice but I was intrigued by it and willing to give it a go.
My knowledge expanded when you suggested I watch the two videos with Terence Watts outlining the fundamentals of the therapy. I was amazed that so few sessions were needed and you suggested it should take just one session for myself.
The day of, I felt slightly nervous because this was something new and different. Your demeanor and explanation was very reassuring, this existed throughout the therapeutic process. I felt such a sense of relief afterwards and couldn’t wait to see whether it worked for me in practice.
Within 3-4 weeks I was asked to co-facilitate a group. I agreed with no hesitation, knowing that this was the time. Since this time, I’ve conducted 2 group sessions and my anxiety has been very much under control. I have actually gained enjoyment from running these sessions- this is hard to believe considering the extent of my anxiety surrounding public speaking historically. I will undoubtedly have a lot more groups to co-facilitate in the future and I perceive this with no anxiety now.
Without further ado, I’d like to express my huge sense of gratitude to you. You demonstrated both warmth and professionalism, and of course your impressive skill-set in BWRT practice.
For anyone thinking about giving it a go, I highly recommend Helen Goad and BWRT!
I came to Helen with anxiety issues and after 4 appointments I feel like I am back to my normal happy self. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with any issues. Thanks 😀
From a young lady who owns her own business, we used BWRT® and hypnotherapy.
This is an email i received from a client (more BWRT work)
Sorry it’s taken me so long to write to you. I just wanted to say how fantastic the BWRT therapy was.I must admit to have been slightly sceptical, but I have to say the results were astounding! My extreme agitation was gone just like that. Even now, many weeks later, the specific triggers that previously sent my stress levels soaring don’t do that any more. Amazing! It’s really helped me cope with a difficult situation. I can’t thank you enough.
