About me

Making the decision to come for counselling can feel daunting.  As a counsellor, it is important that I help you feel as safe as possible while you explore the areas that are your most vulnerable.  I understand that going into an unfamiliar situation can make most of us feel anxious, therefore I will explain the process from the beginning and I will also give you space to share with me, what you feel comfortable sharing.  This is your space so treat it how you need to.

Everybody goes through times in their life that feel too hard to manage.  Everyday life can seem overwhelming and sometimes our own identity and self-worth gets lost in the chaos.  Counselling is just another tool where you can explore your questions, fears and goals in order to understand what you need and how to get there.

If you would like to talk further about your own anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem/self-worth, anger, childhood issues (including abuse or family separation) or any other issues which are currently impacting your life, please get in touch.

I also have a Facebook page (Kerry Courtney Counselling) where I post different issues each month.

Training, qualifications & experience

I began my counselling training in 2007, gaining a degree in Humanistic Counselling Practice, before completing my Post-Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People. I also completed my certificate in Complex Trauma and Childhood Abuse in summer 2017.

I have been working as an Integrative Counsellor for the last six years, focusing on the Person-centred Approach. This means that you are the expert in the counselling room and I use a specific Humanistic Approach depending on your needs. My counselling experience has been in a community-based setting, as well as working as a Youth Counsellor in a primary and post-primary school setting. This has given me experience working with all ages and issues.

I have worked first-hand with women and children affected by domestic abuse, families in kinship care, families affected by ongoing mental health issues within the home environment and provided group work for men and women who have struggled with severe anxiety and depression due to childhood issues and trauma.  I am currently working with ex-offenders, providing them with emotional support.

I offer one to one counselling; group work for children and young people; workshops for adults who are struggling with specific issues; parenting support; and a safe space for families to explore ongoing issues.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and an Accredited Registrant with National Counselling Society (MNCS)
