Bev Hudspith (MA, Dip HIP, UKCP Registered)
I am a fully-qualified psychotherapist with a well-established practice on the outskirts of Chippenham. I offer both long (open-ended) and shorter-term therapy to individual adults in a safe and confidential environment.
I see myself as a warm, empathic and approachable therapist. I understand that talking about yourself can feel daunting and frightening at first, so my aim is to make you feel welcome and at ease.
How Can I Help?
You may be feeling anxious, low, stressed, having problems in your relationships or simply feeling that you don't know who you are. As a Humanistic and Integrative therapist, my approach focuses on working alongside you to support you in a non-directive way. This can help you to gain insight and understanding of yourself and whatever you might bring to the work.
I believe that we often have a deep-seated need to feel truly heard and understood. My aim is to meet this need through the relationship that we build together. The experience of being attended to and having time to talk can be both powerful and healing.
The first session is a chance for you to talk about yourself and what you hope to gain from therapy. It's an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little and for us to see if we 'fit'.
I usually explain a little about the way I work and we discuss the practicalities, such as fees. If we decide to work together we will then agree upon a mutually convenient time to meet weekly.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully-qualified psychotherapist and accredited UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) member, and abide by their code of ethics.
I trained with BCPC (Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling), a highly regarded training organisation. I have an MA in Psychotherapy (Middlesex University) and hold a Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (BCPC).
I previously worked as a volunteer with clients at Swindon Counselling Service. I have been working with clients since 2011 and in private practice since 2012.
I offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists. I am currently in training with The Centre for Supervision Training and Development (CSTD) in Bath, working towards a Certificate in Clinical Supervision and while in training I can offer reduced fees to supervisees.
I have experience working in art and design, which continues to be an interest and source of inspiration for me. I find my creativity influences my work as a therapist, and I offer an opportunity to use other therapeutic tools alongside the talking therapy (such as creative artwork and sand-tray work). I also have a background in education.
