Kerry Krauhaus, Dip Coun, Reg MBACP
Hello my name is Kerry and i am an Qualified Registered Counsellor. I have a private practice in Sidcup Kent where clients can feel safe and supported. I work with clients who are going through difficult periods in their lives.
Life can be very challenging and counselling is a way to work through how you are feeling. It can help you to develop self awareness which will help you to understand why you feel the way you feel. I can support you while you work through how you are feeling and look at how you can become more empowered and in control.
I have been practising as a Counsellor for 8 years. I offer short and long term therapy for Adults (18+) with issue which include stress, generalised anxiety, depression, feeling sad, separation and divorce, family issues, job related problems and different types of abuse.
I am an Integrative Counsellor. This means that I work using different approaches to suit the needs of the person. We are all different and each of us needs individual support. Some people want to talk through how they are feeling. Other people may want to learn more practical strategies to tackle their concerns. We will talk through your needs and how we can work together to help you achieve your desired outcome.
I am a registered member of the BACP which ensures that i am regulated and work within their ethical framework.
I have day and evening sessions available. Our first meeting is an initial assessment to discuss what you need from counselling and whether you want to continue. There is no obligation to continue. Initial assessments are £20 for 30-40 minutes. Counselling sessions are £40 per session.
I also offer Online Counselling through Zoom and telephone counselling. I will talk you through the practicalities during the assessment which can be remote or face to face.
Deciding to have counselling is a huge step and can be very daunting. Please feel free to contact me regarding the service. I will talk you through the process and try to put your mind at ease.

I currently work at my private practice supporting clients. Clients i have worked with have various presenting issues. Some of the most common are anxiety, low mood, feeling overwhelmed, lack of motivation, addictions, abuse and relationship problems.
I work for a Community organisation who support parents and carers of children with disabilities and additional needs. I have been supporting parents since 2013. Being a parent can be hard work and having a child with a disability can some times be challenging and stressful. There are often lots of appointments and services to juggle. Having a space to talk through the obstacles that you are up against can help release the pressure that you feel and also help you gain clarity about what needs to be addressed.
I also work for a local college supporting students who need support. Sometimes the pressure of what is expected from courses and work can be overwhelming. Or there may be other personal issues going on. I offer the students a space to work through how they are feeling and work towards solutions that can help them when counselling has finished.
I have supported people with a wide range of issues including stress, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, relationships and family issues, work related issues and job loss, money worries and different types of abuse.
