Level 2 - Psychology of Identity and Behaviour
BWRT® Level 2 – Psychology of Identity and Behaviour. Level 2 deals with issues that you feel are internal to you, they feel PART of your identity, and just the way you are. You do not feel able to control these issues as they are so much PART of who you think you are.
BWRT® Level 2 builds on level 1 adding in the more complex dynamic of how we identify with who we are. Level 2 works deeply and effectively with how we see ourselves and who we identify ourselves to be. If you don’t like who you identify as then this work is for you.
You and your Identity
When thinking about who you are and how you see yourself, you might be comfortable with that and like who you see, but you might not? Our identity is formed deep within us, starting very early in our childhood development and consolidating over time. Our identity can be seen as the labels that we apply to ourselves and they have been with us for so long we can’t imagine ourselves without them, they become core to us. This is how our psyche is meant to form it is only a problem if the sense of self is negative or we do not in some way feel that we are ok.
Traditional therapy works at you understanding and controlling the behaviours of a negative self-identity. Whilst BWRT® level 2 works at resolving the old negative sense of self that is causing the issues, so they just don’t exist anymore. It is no longer a part of you.
‘The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are?’
BWRT Level 2 works with some of the following-
• Addictions such as alcohol, gambling, sex, porn, substances
• Destructive behaviour
• Repeated relationship problems
• Eating disorders
• Binge eating or drinking
• Reactive depression (triggered by a specific event or issue)
• Victim of bullying (be it in a relationship, workplace or school and includes historical or present day)
• PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) when you feel you have lost your sense of self
• Anything that is perceived as being an intrinsic part of your being that you would prefer not to have.
What is your Self-Identity?
Holding a negative self-identity or perception diminishes your sense of personal empowerment. This then creates many deep-rooted and complex issues that becomes locked into the very behaviour you are struggling with examples are above and the I am statements below.
‘Who am I?’ is an age-old question and the answer you give to yourself shapes your experiences both internally and externally. We all have our own unique way of defining and identifying ourselves perhaps answering this sentence will help you ‘I am…………….’
Your Self Identity has a profound effect on your ability to be innately happy, fulfilled and at one with yourself.
I have below some examples of thoughts, feelings and self-perception statements that indicate identity issues.
• I cannot be successful
• I cannot be me unless I drink/party/eat…...
• I am a failure
• I am inferior to other people
• I am angry
• I am not clever or intelligent
• I am fat/useless/worthless
• I have to be perfect to be loved and acceptable
• I am a perfectionist
• I am useless
• I am not good enough
• I am fat
• I am worthless
• I am not acceptable
• I am unlovable
• I am disorganised
• I am a hoarder
• I am an anorexic
• I am a self-harmer

Requirements for your next steps to a successful transformation journey
• You will need to ensure you have the time on a weekly basis for the appointment sessions necessary.
• You will need time on a daily basis to complete work sheets to support the transformation you want and open up your way of thinking and feeling to be fully ready for the change.
• You will need the finances available so you are able to complete all the sessions to completion
The Process of Creation
Level 2 BWRT® is based on 4 distinct phases of work which unfolds over a minimum of 4 weekly sessions.
We begin with a double session of 2 hours for a full assessment that forms the foundations for the work required. This creates the map, compass and structure you will need to lead you through the transformation you wish to achieve. We can then assess how many sessions are required and if there are any emotions that are causing you problems that will need Level 1 General Psychopathology way of working. There will also be work to complete at home in between some of the sessions. The following stages last for one and a half hours each unlocking the old identity and then doing a total Reboot with a completion stage.
If you relate with this level of work and feel this would be beneficial to you then please feel free to contact me to speak further.
