About me

Hello, my name is Beverley and I provide a collaborative, confidential and professional psychotherapy service for adults suffering with a range of emotional problems that negatively affect their personal and professional lives. The therapy treatment choices I provide include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) and Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR). I am NHS trained in both CBT and EMDR and have gained invaluable experience whilst working in two local NHS IAPT services, where I was able to provide the choice of CBT and EMDR treatment to clients I worked with. I left the NHS in 2017 to focus on my own private practice.

Many of us at some point will be affected by psychological issues that cause distress, due to depression, anxiety and PTSD, and so making the decision to seek help from a therapist is a very important step and one that feels right for you; as is having the confidence and trust in your therapist and their experience and training.

I qualified as a CBT Psychotherapist after graduating from the University of Southampton in 2013 and I am an Accredited CBT Psychotherapist with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) - the lead organisation for CBT in the UK. Being an accredited member means that I maintain the highest standards of practice and ethics, and ensures I have regular clinical supervision and professional development. This enables me to provide the best quality and evidence-based treatment for my clients.

I completed my EMDR training with EMDR Europe in 2015 and I am a qualified member of EMDR UK & Ireland. I receive regular supervision from an EMDR Consultant.

CBT is an effective treatment for a wide range of emotional problems, which includes Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD, and focuses on forming a shared understanding of the main difficulty and what keeps it going, by exploring the links between how you think, feel and react to your environment. EMDR is a therapy for PTSD and is aimed at symptom resolution and an acceptance of what has happened. Both approaches are recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). CBT is delivered in a 50-60 minute session, whilst EMDR can range from 60-90 minutes in duration.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
