I found Bevis a wonderfully sensitive practitioner and guide through a process that I found challenging and revealing.  I came to Somatic Experiencing whilst struggling with the burden and sadness of many 'unexplained' IVF failures and with a long history of stress and anxiety.  The techniques and approach Bevis offered me have resulted in a new sense of personal freedom and ease, they remain part of my daily life.  I would say I feel more comfortable in my skin and we now have a beautiful, laughing boy - joy.
