“Kerry helped me to develop coping strategies and I found her advice invaluable in helping me to cope with my anxiety.”

When I first came to see Kerry I was struggling with anxiety and I was worrying about everything in my life. I was finding it very hard to be in social situations and found myself too anxious to do most things, something which was causing a lot of tension at home. From my first session Kerry put me at ease, she is fantastic listener and I found it easy to discuss my problems and worries with her. Kerry helped me to develop coping strategies and I found her advice invaluable in helping me to cope with my anxiety. Through attending the sessions with Kerry I have been able to open up to my Husband and have developed a better relationship with my own emotions. I hope to continue to use the techniques Kerry has given me to control my anxiety and not let it get the best of me anymore. 

“I now have a purpose to aim for.”

Thank you for your guidance, advice and calming, natural personality. Thanks to you I have now got a clearer mind and though I have a long journey still ahead of me I now have a purpose to aim for. In the future I shall think of all the things that you have advised me about at times when I may feel vulnerable again.  

“I could tell that she really believed in me.”

The best thing that stood out for me about Kerry was that she really made the effort to try and understand me as a person and used this in her approach. This helped me because she noticed and pointed out certain positive qualities about myself and also highlighted other aspects of my personality which helped to explain and give me a better understanding of why I am the way I am. It also meant that the support and advice she gave me and the things we talked about were specific things that would actually work for me and I could tell that she really believed in me.

“Kerry has such a natural calming manner which really puts you at ease.”

Kerry is a fantastic counsellor. After seeking help during my first experience of mental health difficulties I really didn’t know what to expect. However Kerry has such a natural calming manner which really puts you at ease. Her office is lovely and she really offers a kind listening ear. I will miss our sessions but I’m so grateful for all the support that Kerry has offered me during a difficult time.

“After the first session I felt like a weight had been lifted.”

Just wanted to thank you for literally giving me control of my life back. After the first session I felt like a weight had been lifted. Everything you said made complete sense and the tools you gave me to use have been so useful to enable me to focus on me and prioritise my daily life. You are so warm and easy to talk too and also gave me the chance to talk openly in a non-judgmental way. I would recommend you to anyone who needed some help to get their lives back on track.
