Hi. My name is Kerry. I started life as a nurse believe it or not, a long long time ago!! and then I qualified from my Post Grad Diploma in Integrated Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2009, and worked in a counselling service. I'm a current Registered member of the BACP.
I have many many years working with people in all sorts of areas within the caring arena. It's been about 30 years of working with people all in! Jobs that I absolutely loved, and learnt a huge amount from the people I worked with, and felt very privileged to be able to try and help. From all those years came a lot of experience and even a little bit of wisdom!!
I would be very happy if you wanted to have an initial session just to see how you felt about progressing with therapy with myself. There would be absolutely no obligation, but you may find it helpful just to test the water and see how an initial session goes and get an idea of how you would feel working with myself. How would you feel about that?
Feel free to email me and I will get back to you so that we can arrange an initial session.
Looking forward to it.

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.
