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.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
