Hello, my name is Kerry and I am a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and an NMC Registered Mental Health Nurse.  I practice privately offering evidence based psychological therapies to individuals and psychological skills training workshops to businesses.  I work from home in Bridport, and can visit you at home or at work.

In therapy my approach is pluralistic.  It does not matter whether you know the cause of your issues or not, or whether you have diagnostic labels or not, I can work with you in the present to help you resolve current issues, manage unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and reacting,  and help you find meaning and purpose in your life.  Our work can be short term and focused, or ongoing, using a supportive/coaching approach to maintaining well being in the longer term.  

I am particularly interested in working with military veterans, and have recently become involved with a fabulous local peer-led charity  (m.facebook.com/veteranshubweymouth).  I also have an interest in hoarding disorder and I am happy to work intensively and longer term with this to help individuals and families get their homes and lives back.

The skills training offered is based on the work of Dr Paul Flaxman of City University, London, a globally recognised academic in the fields of burnout, workplace recovery and resilience (and my trainer).  For information on Paul's work follow the link  Dr Paul Flaxman | City, University of London
