Kerry McNally M.Sc. Counselling Psychology MBACP (Accred)
We all face challenges in our lives whether brought about by long term illness, bereavement, the ending of a relationship, age related changes or even an empty nest. I have a special interest in working with you if you are experiencing difficulties during these times of transition; you may feel a loss of control over events and this could be impacting on important relationships at home and work and you may be finding it difficult to adjust.
Counselling can begin to offer some insights into how these changes are affecting your life, changes that challenge how you think and feel and may leave you feeling anxious, depressed or isolated. Being listened to and feeling understood has always been important to me and this is something fundamental to my practice. I offer a calm and supportive place for you to begin to talk about how you feel. Talking to someone who can listen without judgment or giving advice in a safe and confidential space can make all the difference.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am accredited and registered with the British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling.
I previously worked in Human Resources in South Africa before completing a Masters degree in psychology, and following an internship registered as a Counselling Psychologist with the Health Professions of South Africa. As a Psychologist my work involved supporting individuals and families who were facing challenging life events.
Over the years both in the UK and South Africa my work has involved working with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship breakdown, long term illness, bereavement, disability, trauma, age related changes and challenges.
Apart from private practice, I currently work for a cancer charity providing counselling to adults with a cancer diagnosis or those affected by cancer. I also manage and provide support for an online self guided programme for anxiety and depression through an Employee Assistance Programme.
