My name is Kerrie Riley. I am a registered counsellor (therapist) working in Leicester, Leicestershire. I am a member of the BACP (British Association For Counselling And Psychotherapy).
I started my career in counselling, because I have a passion for supporting the wellbeing of others and believe anyone can benefit from a supportive and genuine relationship. I am confident in working with a variety of age groups over 11yrs, and from different cultures or ethnicities. I pride myself in working with the LGBTQIA+ and ethnically diverse communities. I appreciate the psychological wellbeing of people from other heritages. In order for me to support you with improvements in your life, I believe a counsellor needs to be authentic and genuine.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Can be flexible
We can all face challenges in our lives, and can feel like we have little control. Anyone can face circumstances that are unwanted and life changing, which can leave us in a deflated emotional state.
This can be anything from relationship breakdowns, bereavement, loss of employment, or traumatic events; the list is endless. Regardless of what it is you’re having difficulty with, I can support your wellbeing while encouraging a positive change in your life. The way I work with clients has proven very beneficial. I maintain and build a relationship, in order for me to fully support your personal understanding. It requires a therapeutic bond that is built up from the relationship we will develop throughout your therapy.
I am qualified as an integrative counsellor, which allows me to draw upon different approaches. It works to keep it simple. I can offer you a safe space, where you are free to explore the cause of your emotional distress. This safe space is confidential and free from judgement. I am passionate about the work I do. I am compassionate, empathic and honest. I thrive on seeing progression in others, by developing a therapeutic relationship with my clients. This allows the process of therapy to be fearless. While it may take some time to develop different coping strategies, I believe positive outcomes will be achieved. Given the right conditions, anyone is capable of change and growth. Empathy and equality are the best foundations for a connection, and individuals can thrive when their autonomy and individuality is respected
