WHO ARE WE
Beverley Hutton, our Clinical Director and Founder, trained originally in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and went onto further training in EMDR to become a Europe Accredited Practitioner (UKCP registered). Beverley has a particular interest and experience working with dissociative disorders, including DID and trauma, body image disorders, and chronic pain management. She facilitates our weekly therapy group and monthly BDD and DID groups. She previously ran the StH Therapeutic Community for 7 years before moving into more individual work with EMDR, which has seen more complex clients being able to make dramatic progress over a much shorter time period. Beverley works on-line to offer individual therapy and group therapy, as well as running our residential programme in Somerset. Beverley has several years' previous experience in senior NHS healthcare management. She is the author of Still the Hunger and The MORE Course — please see our Resources page for further details.
