Kerrie McCullough Counsellor/Play Therapist MBACP Registered

About me

I work with adults, young people and children. I have been practising as a therapist since 2002. I am dual trained in counselling and play therapy. My aim when working with clients is how can I help facilitate a safe space where change, growth and healing can happen. I work integratively using different methods but coming initially from a person centred approach. My aim is to help empower the individual so they have a very active part in their therapy. This is really important to me as a practitioner and to the healing process.  Adults and children can both benefit from a talking therapy and a creative therapy. Due to me being trained in shamanism I am also open to the transpersonal aspects of therapy also.

The creative therapy is very powerfull to help work with issues that are deep in the subconcious and difficult to access through talking. The creative piece of work can act as a holding safe space for unexpressed feelings and thoughts. I use meduims such as sandtrays and objects, clay, creative visualisation, art/crafts and music. I worked as a senior counsellor for many years offering in house therapy to staff, I have worked as a children's counsellor at charities and at a rape and sexual abuse support centre. I work currently with children and young people in schools and I also work in private practice with adults.
