About Beverley Harper
Msc RECBT, MAREBT,BSCH, Dhyp, PDCBH
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist with a Masters degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Training with the UK’s foremost expert in CBT, Professor Windy Dryden. I have been practicing since 2003 and have worked in the NHS and at The Priory as well as running a private practice in several locations in London. I have recently moved to Frome and still maintain my London Clinics.
In addition to seeing clients privately I supervise other therapists and train people in CBT, Counseling and Hypnosis at The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies in Central London. I also run a 6 week Mindfulness meditation course and other personal development workshops in Frome.
My approach with clients is integrative, I use the CBT model combined with hypnosis where appropriate as research has shown that the combination can be very helpful when working with clients dealing with Anxiety and Depression. (Kirsch, Montgomery and Saperstein 1995) Because she believes that everyone is an individual there is no one size fits all approach, the therapy will be collaborative with you working towards clear outcomes.
Mindfulness will be introduced as a powerful self help technique which all clients can benefit with.
The psychological model of CBT which I work with is suitable for most issues that clients present with, from emotional upset , such as anxiety or depression, behavioural issues such as smoking or binge drinking to symptomatic concerns like pain or IBS.
The most common issues people come for help with include:
Habits like smoking or binge drinking
Lack of Self Esteem
Fear of public speaking
Long term Pain
Although for some people the problems are rather more complex and include many of the issues highlighted above . and, sometimes people feel stuck and need a non judgemental ear to help them navigate through.
In addition to this I work extensively with women who have issues around Fertility. I trained with Sjaine Hugo and am a qualified Fertile Body Method practitioner . This is an approach sympathetic to all the issues around compromised fertility .
What previous clients have said about me
I can only thank Beverley for her help and support in providing me with the tools to become a stronger and more resilient person. She has helped to retrain my mind without changing me, and encourages me as I make strong steps forward from a very bleak place. Beverley has taught me to accept that I cannot change the past and with her help I have totally changed my future and embrace an exciting unknown.
Caroline , Central London
Beverley is non-judgemental and so welcoming that I felt safe immediately. Her insight and her approach to what seemed an insurmountable problem have helped me beyond measure, and the fact that she also has a great sense of humour is an unexpected bonus!
The sessions have been a great help to me and I feel much better prepared to deal with the situations which have caused difficulty in the past. I’m sure the recording will help reinforce things. I’ll let you know how I get on.
Robert, East Dulwich
After many years struggling with anxiety I feel I have my life back on track. I was very apprehensive about therapy but having met Beverley I fond her very easy to work with, the sessions were educational and fun. Her professional and focused approach to my issues helped me to make sense of issues which had held me back for years. Thank you.
I will be working at Pure Moves on Thursdays and Fridays. Please call or email to arrange a session or with any questions
