Hi Emily. I have had similar problems with my son but rather than him sleeping in my bed I have spent a lot of nights on his bedroom floor.
To get him out of this I got him to settle in his own bed with me sitting on a chair right next to his bed gradually I moved the chair further away until I was at his door. Once I was out of the door he would call out and I would gentley respond and after a couple of months he was settling himslef into bed once more.
My sister bought her son a special cuddly toy (Sully from Monsters Inc) to scare away the scarey dreams and keep him safe while he slept and this worked for her however he was 5 or 6 so was able to understand about nightmares.
Hang in there and I hope things improve for you
