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 and coaching to individuals, and psychological skills training/support to businesses.  I work from home in West Dorset and I am a regular visitor to Walton-on-Thames.  I can visit you at home, we can walk and talk, or we can work via Zoom (socially distanced for now).

My approach is pluralistic.  It does not matter whether you know the cause of the issues or not, or whether you have diagnostic labels or not, I can work with you in the present to help understand the influence of your past,  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 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 truly inspiring peer-led charity  (facebook.com/veteranshubweymouth).  I also get a huge amount of satisfaction from coaching people who are just stuck at a crossroads in life and unsure how to move forward.

Support offered to businesses/employers 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

Fees 

I offer a free introductory phone call or meeting  (up to half an hour).  Fees will depend on circumstances, need, length of sessions, level of support required between sessions and payment choices (reduced fees for block payments in advance). 

£60-150 per hour long session.


Confidentiality: As far as is possible, what we discuss in sessions remains between us.  All of the information that you provide is kept securely and handled in accordance with guidance from the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office).
