Cheryl Keen, UKCP Accred Psychotherapist, Dip.Supervision
Couples, young people, families and adults - contact me for a no-obligation exploratory discussion of whether I can help you.
I am an experienced and fully accredited Psychotherapist and Supervisor working across a spectrum of issues including depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement and trauma. The issues that people bring are extremely varied and nothing is off limits, at least for an initial discussion. If I feel I cannot help, I will try to signpost you to someone who can.
For me, the purpose of therapy is insight - making your own meaning out of your experience - and from this can emerge growth and change.
Sometimes people simply want space to explore their issues. Others want a more pragmatic, solution-focused approach. How we work together is a matter for discussion between us.
I am happy to have an initial no-obligation chat either on the phone or face to face to see whether the chemistry is right for us to work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been practising as a psychotherapist since 2004 and have worked in private practice, the NHS, secondary schools and the voluntary sector.
I initially trained as a counsellor before going onto the Metanoia Institute to gain an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy. This was followed by further trainings in working with Young People, Couples Therapy, Clinical Supervision, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Solutions Focused Approaches. More recently I have completed a certificate level training in working with families.
I undertake a programme of Continuous Professional Development which keeps me in touch with developments in my profession.
