Davy Hutton has a Post Graduate (University) qualification in Clinical Supervision; & MSc. in Psychological Trauma Management.  As a Consultant Psychotherapist, he has extensive experience in working with anxiety, depression, adverse childhood experiences and developmental/complex trauma, human trafficking, abuse, sexual abuse & childhood/clerical sexual abuse; physical and emotional abuse, and clinical supervision. Based in Northern Ireland his work over the last 17yrs has been with the victims of numerous atrocities i.e. bombings, shootings and multiple murder bids. He has been employed on a consultative basis by organizations, to overview their trauma protocols/procedures; manage managers etc and suggest amendments to working practices where necessary. Currently he is the Clinical Lead of an organization working with victims of The Troubles and their families. Over this period Davy has been fascinated by the creative use of metaphor and symbolic resources, during EMDR therapy. Depression and anxiety are very common concerns for a lot of people. With all my clients there is a collaborative case conceptualisation and we jointly agree a way forward. I have trained extensively in managing psychological trauma and you can benefit from my extensive experience and qualifications. He has over 15,000 hrs supervised clinical experience gained over the past few decades.

Supervision from a Post Graduate (in Clinical Supervision) qualified EMDR Consultant Supervisor and BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor.
I supply counselling and management supervision to various private and charitable organisations. I supervise counsellors/psychotherapists from all over the U.K. & Ireland. This is to assist and develop their skills/abilites to perform their duties.

The supervision will be from a developmental theoretical perspective, integrated with the Page and Wosket Cyclical Model, contained within supervisee friendly, core conditions. The supervisee should expect to develop professionally under supervision, as theoretical and clinical experience increases.

“Topics for learning might include developing skills in a particular model or theoretical approach to the work, might include the number and types of cases to be seen over a specified time scale, or be focused on supervisees learning more about their own responses to the work, where their strengths lie and the identification of and work on blind spots.” (Scaife, J. 2001)

I have a Post Graduate qualification in Clinical Supervision From the University of Derby. I also am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
