I am a clinical psychologist, with over 15 years of specialist experience in the NHS; working with adults with trauma, troubling symptoms and physical health conditions, such as persistent pain or cancer, many of whom have had difficult experiences growing up.

As an EMDR practitioner I work in an attachment-informed way, specialising in interventions for trauma, persistent pain and other troubling memories and symptoms.

I am also trained in psychosynthesis, and a transpersonal perspective is central to all my work, looking at meaning and purpose of what is trying to emerge beyond any symptomatic labels.

Beverley Hutton

I am currently available for referrals:Yes

I am a UKCP registered Psychodynamic and EMDR psychotherapist, with several years' experience in senior NHS healthcare management and seven years experience of running a therapeutic community for those with more complex mental health problems.

I have a particular interest and experience working with dissociative disorders, including DID and C-PTSD, body image disorders, as well as chronic pain management all from a compassion-focused therapy approach.

Alongside offering individual EMDR for a wide range of mental health problems, I continue to run a weekly therapy group which can be attended alongside individual therapy for additional support.

This groupwork is particularly helpful for those with interpersonal difficulties stemming from a complex trauma background, and being a member of this group, entitles members to 24/7 support via a confidential facilitated on-line forum, which can be invaluable in-between sessions.

I also run a free monthly support group for people suffering with Body Dysmorphic Disorder in association with the BDD Foundation.

Since training in EMDR, I have focused more on individual work using EMDR from an attachment-informed perspective for a wide range of problems, including for the management of chronic pain with great results.

EMDR has transformed the way I work and I delight in seeing clients who would have previously needed longer term therapy, making dramatic steps forwards in their recovery, and sharing in the magic of EMDR.
