Beverley Spicer is a Therapeutic Counsellor, Hypnotherapist, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner at Grey Matters Centre, with over 18 years experience.

Beverley has worked with many different client groups over the years but her passion lies in trauma recovery, which is her specialist area. Trauma recovery is extremely close to her heart, both from a personal and professional prospectus. As a trauma survivor herself she believes 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. Beverley believes that every single person is special, unique, enough and totally loveable in their own individual way. However from her years of experience finds that most people, particularly trauma survivors struggle to believe that. Her passion is to help her clients believe in themselves and their own abilities. Beverley has 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.

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

Beverley has 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. Beverley offers a safe space for individuals to explore their thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental way, allowing the clients to build trust. She is extremely compassionate and genuinely loves to see the amazing transformation that therapy can offer.

She 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 she 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 resourcesTeach you coping mechanisms for now and for the future
  • Help you to establish a full and lasting, sustainable recovery
