Sally Kerr - Counsellor for Adults and Young People
Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed with life's stress and not sure where to turn?
No matter what your age or situation, talking things through confidentially can bring some clarity to your thoughts. Having the opportunity to off-load anxieties, complicated feelings, or worries to someone who isn't family, but who does have the experience and sensitivity to listen to you, can help you explore a different, more positive future and offer new ways to cope.
If problems from the past continue to overshadow you or more recent changes such as bereavement, relationship difficulties or illness have surfaced, then my non-judgemental space is here for you.
Dark, sometimes suicidal thoughts can feel overwhelming, and it's hard to find someone who you can trust to talk to. You don't want to burden anyone else. Counselling can make a difference. I can listen and hear those emotional struggles.
I am also experienced in supporting children, teenagers and young adults.
Having worked within a children's charity and as part of a hospice family support team, I’m conscious that everyone copes differently. A ‘talking therapy’ simply isn’t suited to everyone. For this reason, I also offer creative and play therapies, rewarding for children and adults alike. Whether you choose a one-off session or several appointments, what’s best for you is at the heart of my service.
I can offer flexible appointment times, including evenings.
Local home visits can be considered where there is a need.
DBS checked and fully insured.
