Kerry Courtney MBACP, NCS, BA (Hons) Humanistic Counselling, PG Adv Dip.
I will support you in a safe and confidential environment. It is important for you as the client to feel no judgement with your vulnerability and to grow in a peaceful, non-judgemental atmosphere at your own pace. I make sure to provide a space for you to sit with your feelings, allowing you to explore techniques to help understand your emotions, learn how to be in the here and now and to develop your sense of personal freedom.
If you feel ready to explore an issue you are struggling with and would like someone to walk your journey with you, please do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone call to arrange an assessment.
I have a Facebook page where I post tips and information on different issues. This month the focus is on IDENTITY and exploring ways to help you understand who you are and being aware of your own needs.
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 am currently completing my Certificate in Complex Trauma and Childhood Abuse.
I have been working as an Integrative Counsellor for the last six years, focusing on the Person-centred Approach. 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 offer one to one counselling; group work for children and young people who are struggling with specific issues; parenting support for challenging behaviour and a safe space for families to explore ongoing issues, if necessary. I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
