Kay Cerski Dip Couns MBACP Registered. Counselling for Individuals and Couples
Hello and welcome. I am Kay and I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy - BACP. I offer one-to-one individual counselling for adults, young people, student counsellors and couple relationship counselling. I am an integrative counsellor working with a person centred, CBT and psychodynamic approach, depending upon what is appropriate and best suits your needs.
Sometimes life is challenging and it can help to have someone to talk to. I offer a supportive, confidential and safe space for you to explore and understand any problems or concerns that you may have.
My work experience covers a wide and diverse range of issues. These include relationship issues, depression, panic disorder, common mental health problems, confidence and self esteem difficulties, anxiety, generalised anxiety disoder, sadness, lonliness, loss issues including bereavement, anticipatory grief, miscarriage and termination, empty nest syndrome, redundancy and retirement amongst others (see list below.) Couple and relationship counselling can help you to explore difficulties in your relationship, as well as provide insight into patterns and behaviours that may sabotage or make establishing and maintaining relationships more difficult for you.
Counselling can help you navigate through life's challenges and changes and regain a sense of control in your life. Through self exploration, and within a professional, non-judgemental relationship, you can come to understand and accept thoughts, feelings and actions that may be restricting you, causing unhappiness or leaving you feeling unfulfilled and confused. Counselling can be the first step towards change and a better, more positive future for you.
My established private practice is within easy reach of Market Deeping, Bourne, Boston, Stamford, Spalding, Peterborough and the surrounding areas, and has easy access, free off road parking and toilet facilities.
In addition to my counselling practice I lecture and tutor Counselling Skills Level 2 and Counselling Studies Level 3 at City College Peterborough.
I welcome text, telephone or email enquiries. Please contact me for further details or to make an appointment.

A few of my Counselling Testimonials:
"Kay, thank you for all the work you have done with myself and us as a couple. We are both so very grateful. Your caring, professional and very kind manner has always been appreciated." Counselling Client October 2017
"First rate counselling from a very kind, supportive and experienced lady! I would highly recommend Kay if you are needing help with anxiety, self esteem, confidence and self worth issues. Private Counselling Client - July 2017
"Kay helped myself and my partner during a very difficult time in our relationship. Following several challenging life events that had left our relationship struggling and our ability to communicate at an all time low, Kay helped us to rediscover the love, friendship and attraction that had brought us together and helped us to work through our differences. This helped us to rebuild our relationship and we have just celebrated our 20 year anniversary! I'm can honestly say without Kay's help I'm not sure we would have made it! Private Counselling Client - June 2017
I went to see Kay for help with anxiety and depression. I had seen other counsellors before over the years but Kay's calm and supportive approach really struck a chord with me. I felt completely understood and accepted and this helped me to understand and work through some of the issues that had been making me feel so helpless and unhappy for so many years. I feel like a new person thanks to Kay's experience and invaluable help.
Private Counselling client - July 2017
"I was referred to Kay for pre-bereavement counselling when I was struggling to cope with the news that my sister was terminally ill. She gave me a wonderful, safe space to let go of a mass of confusing feelings and she helped me to focus on ways of understanding and coping with what was happening. Kay's calm, caring and person-centred approach has made an enormous difference to the way I coped with the whole experience."
Private Counselling Client - April 2012
"Kay is an experienced and well-qualified counsellor, with years of counselling experience working with a variety of issues and problems. If you are looking for top quality counselling from a generous, supportive, technically-gifted and professional counsellor, look no further. I can heartily recommend Kay - she is the real deal!"
Private Counselling Client - October 2015
"Kay helped me following a cancer diagnosis at the age of 26, when I thought my world was collapsing around me. The counselling Kay provided really helped me to cope and to give me another perspective, she helped me to realise that it was OK to feel scared, angry and frustrated and to recognise that my own feelings were important. I felt totally supported and understood by Kay which made me feel less alone and able to manage."
