Christel Maritz Psychologist is committed to on going study and recently added the modality of Brain Working Recursive Therapy to her repertoire.   BWRT® is a ground breaking therapy that reflects the way our brain operates to change previously formed patterns that are preventing us from living life to the full. Research shows that the brain has already processed information and initiated a reaction before our conscious minds are even aware of it. So when we are trying to address areas such as anxiety, stress, fears, phobias, relationship problems, confidence, and other negative or limiting habits, we often fail or struggle despite thinking rationally after years of being in therapy. BWRT® bypasses this problem by retraining the neuro-pathway of the brain’s patterns. BWRT® is also quite effective in treating Post traumatic symptoms.

An integrated neuroscientific approach in the planning and executing of therapy for each individual, is thus the essence of Christel’s Maritz‘ approach to treating her patients. Treating and addressing symptoms instead of labelling and treating diagnoses, is of utmost importance to her.
