hannah's project - intensive emdr retreats

From summer 2022 we will be offering intensive EMDR Retreats in the beautiful Somerset countryside.  The retreats will be led by Beverley Hutton, who is a Europe Accredited EMDR Practitioner and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with extensive experience at treating complex mental health conditions such as BDD, C-PTSD, DID, and chronic pain conditions. 

Unlike other therapy modalities, EMDR can bring about dramatic improvement over an intensive period and so this is an ideal way to move on with life or to kick start your recovery.  Working intensively makes use of the fact that once you trigger the onset of processing through the use of bilateral stimulation, the process continues for the next couple of days and so if we continue processing, rather than pausing after an appointment for another week, so much more can be achieved.  This can be particularly helpful for those who want to resolve symptoms following a traumatic event, or for those who want to speed up their recovery process. 

Retreats can be booked for 1-3 days, Friday - Sunday, with a full day of EMDR for each day booked.  Prior to booking an intensive EMDR retreat, an on-line assessment will be arranged with Beverley to assess suitability for EMDR and to make an individual treatment plan together to ensure we make the most of our time together. 

A typical timetable will involve 6 hours of EMDR per day.  There are two Airbnb apartments next door along with other cottages in the village only a few minutes walk away.  Alternatively there is good accommodation and food available at the Oakhill Inn, a 5 minute walk away.  There is plenty of alternative accommodation around Shepton Mallet (less than 10 minute drive away) and at Wells (a 12 minute drive away).
