Kerry Ingham BA(Hons) Dip(Couns) MBACP
I am in private practice just outside Tunbridge Wells where I provide a safe and confidential environment. You may like support or to make changes in your life. How you have done things so far or how you relate to those around you may not be what you want for your future. What ever the issue, talk therapy can help.
You are welcome to contact me in confidence via my mobile, email or website to arrange an initial conversation so that I can answer any questions you may have and discuss your therapeutic needs. If coming to the practice is challenging for you or your timetable; I also offer online sessions via a secure video link.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with an accredited Diploma in Counselling from The Wealden Psychology Institute.
I have several years experience volunteering as a bereavement counsellor at Hospice.
My training is integrative which means my theoretical approach varies according to your needs. I work with clients with a range of issues including loss, relationship breakdown and separation, post-natal depression, anxiety, stress, childhood-related difficulties, low self-esteem and life altering events.
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.

I have been an artist and professional education illustrator for over 20 years. Beyond my therapeutic work I combine my creative and counselling skills to produce self-help resources. I run creative art workshops with cancer support groups and local charities.
I love to be outdoors or just about anywhere I can walk my border collie. I prefer to avoid spiders and housework.
