About me

Hello, my name is Kerry Johnson and I am qualified in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have experience with adults and children and I have worked a lot with clients aged 14-20.

I have experience in working with a variety of different mental health-related issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, PTSD and many more.

I am currently taking on new clients and I offer a calming and welcoming space for you to share your concerns without judgement.

How can I help you?

I offer a calming space and an empathetic approach. Depending on what you want from the therapy, I can help you to find a new approach to solving some of your issues or I can simply provide a listening ear. 

What happens when a client first contacts me? 

When you first contact me I like to speak to you on the phone to introduce myself and to hear a little about you and your circumstances. I will give you the details of my location and send you some more information about the counselling. 

What happens in our first session?

In our first session, I like to spend more time getting to know your circumstances and give you the chance to see if this is right for you! 

How often would we meet?

At first, I usually suggest meeting weekly, until we both feel it is suitable to either reduce the frequency of sessions or end the therapy. 

If you feel like you could benefit from counselling and you would like to give me a call or an email to see if counselling is the right thing for you then give me a call on 07704303661 or email me using the contact form.

I look forward to hearing from you. I am happy to offer a discounted rate for students and NHS staff.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
