WHO ARE WE
Beverley Hutton, our Clinical Director and Founder, has an MA in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and is a Europe Accredited EMDR Practitioner (UKCP registered), with additional training in more advanced Attachment Informed EMDR. 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 and in person from Somerset, offering individual psychotherapy, EMDR, and various on-line support groups, as well as running our intensive residential EMDR programme. Beverley has several years' previous experience in senior NHS healthcare management.
