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 only evidence based psychological therapies (CBT, ACT, CFT, NET) and coaching to adults.  Ordinarily I work from home in West Dorset and I am a regular visitor to Surrey.  Currently my work is mostly on Zoom, but if you live nearby we can walk and talk or I can visit you at home (Covid19 restrictions permitting).

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 towards understanding the influence of your past,  resolving current issues, managing unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and reacting,  and I can help you find meaning and purpose in your life.  Our work can be short term and focused (for example in specific phobias such as blood, injury and needle phobia), or ongoing, using a supportive approach to maintaining well-being in the longer term.  

I particularly enjoy working with military veterans, and support a truly inspiring peer-led charity  https://www.theveteranshub.co.uk/

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.
