Hi I am Beverley Spicer. a Therapeutic Counsellor, Hypnotherapist, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner with over 18 years experience.

I have worked with many different client groups over the years but my passion lies in trauma recovery, which is my specialist area. Trauma recovery is extremely close to my heart, both from a personal and professional prospectus. As a trauma survivor myself I believe that everyone can, with the right help, support and guidance move towards a happier, healthier and more fulfilled life, free from the restraints that unresolved trauma can lead to. I believe that every single person is special, unique, enough and totally loveable in their own individual way. However from my years of experience I find that most people, particularly trauma survivors struggle to believe that. My passion is to help my clients believe in themselves and their own abilities. I have also found that trauma and abuse effects the whole person both mentally and physically and presents itself in many ways, including illness, flashbacks, nightmares, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, relationship problems, self harm, depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia and weight problems.

I have worked at rape and domestic abuse crisis centres for many years which has built my clinical experience in working with complex clients. This allows me to treat the individual as a whole and tailor therapeutic techniques to the individuals needs.

I have found that many trauma survivors struggle to access the help and support that they need, without being subjected to long waiting lists, leaving many individuals feeling lost and alone and like they have nowhere to go. I offer a safe space for individuals to explore their thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental way, allowing you to build trust. I am extremely compassionate and genuinely love to see the amazing transformation that therapy can offer.


How we work together:
I offer an initial assessment which is an hour long. Within this in-depth discussion I will ask you about your problems, your childhood and any other relevant history. I will also be asking you the areas you want to work on and any goals you may have. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions.

The treatment plan will be based around your needs and I will help you:

  • Understand the root cause of your problems
  • Understand the factors that are contributing to your problems
  • Understand what drives your behaviours
  • Find triggers, understand them and deactivate them
  • Work on relationship difficulties
  • Work on other areas of your life that are impacted by your problems
  • Teach you emotional regulation and resources
  • Teach you coping mechanisms for now and for the future
  • Help you to establish a full and lasting, sustainable recovery
  • Work towards ending therapy

N.B. I have had both of my Covid vaccinations and my booster.
