My approach, is seeing clients where they need a safe space to talk. As I work with clients it's allowing myself to have privilege to be walking alongside them in creating a new story with new unique outcomes. Teaching clients the problem is the problem and not themselves.
I support adult clients through difficult life stage transitions. I work with clients to help manage Anxiety, Depression, self-esteem and confidence issues, and work and study stress. I can offer a space to safely explore and check out the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that come up at those times; and help clients reconnect with what's important and meaningful in life, and aligned with personal values.
Therapy can be a big step and decision and it is important that your therapist is someone you feel safe and supported by, that you are respected and so are your strengths and capacities. I work in a holistic and supportive way working with clients to heal, and achieve the outcomes that they choose. I have worked for a number of years with survivors of childhood sexual assault, adult sexual assault, intimate partner and other violence and also work with those who use violence.
Life has its ups and downs and that is what makes it both challenging and rewarding. Therapy is all about the rapport and connection with the therapist – if you don’t feel comfortable with the person then you keep looking until you find the ‘right fit’ for. Kerri doesn’t have a magic wand; nor will she tell you what to do – this is all about how you can work together to manage your individual situation and look at different strategies that you may not have previously tried.
My work is dedicated to providing people experiencing emotional distress and difficult life events with relief and a new way forward. As a registered psychotherapist, I've assisted many people like you to reconnect to their bodies, hearts and minds and move forward in positive ways. I create a nurturing space, where you can be yourself, and grow to make deep and lasting positive changes to your wellbeing and quality of life. I use a combination of trauma-based approaches, body-focussed psychotherapy, and creative therapies.
Therapy is for everyone. Everyone that has ever considered if there is something in life that feels feels stuck, unfulfilled, or who yearns for something different. Everyone that notices patterns they wish they didn't have to keep repeating. Everyone that feels that the structures of the world around them feel constricting, heavy or confusing. Everyone that has ever thought- "Woah! did I just say / do / think that?? Where did that come from??" Everyone that looks at their relationships with partners or family and wonders if they could feel safer. Everyone that questions if it's even possible to feel safe within themselves.
As our world rapidly changes around us more people are reaching a crossroads and are looking for that "something more". This may be within yourself, within your relationships, out in the world and even beyond, to the spiritual. You may be unsure of just what that something is and you need support to uncover, resolve or heal it. Sometimes our life journey leaves us with stress, pain, trauma, struggle with identity and this can lead us to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as anxiety, depression, addiction and disconnection.
If you're searching for a psychotherapist at this point of your life, you're probably searching for answers, solutions to some dilemmas or just for a pathway to relieving emotional distress. Perhaps you are unsure if psychotherapy could help you to change something in your life and enjoy it more. It can be a daunting task to find the "right" therapist, but by exploring therapies available, you are already making first steps towards self-care and changes for the better.
I'm clinical psychologist with over 10 years experience both in private practice and the public sector working with individuals aged 21-65. I believe in using therapy frameworks that are evidence based and individualized treatment plans rather than a 'one size fits all'. I work with people who feel stuck/ stagnant in life repeating the same cycles leaving them dissatisfied. My goal is to help create insight into unhelpful patterns of thinking & behaviors AND give you necessary tools to find strategies to better cope with the challenges of everyday life.
The climate and ecological crisis can cause a range of mental health issues including, grief, anxiety, trauma, and feelings of anger and despair. However, it can also prompt people to re-evaluate their lives, vision meaningful change, and turn sadness into positive life-affirming action. I acknowledge the legitimacy and complicated nature of the human response to the climate crisis; I don't presume the presence or absence of climate-related distress in my client but understand how relationships to nature, living systems, scientific evidence, and media coverage of climate change can help integrate and resolve psychological stressors.

You might be facing challenges such as anxiety or depression, navigating change, past trauma, unresolved grief, or exploring identity. You might be supporting a child, partner or parent through crisis or difficulty; learning how to manage a health condition; wanting to change unhelpful patterns or behaviours; or be in the process of repairing a relationship. You might be working towards self-awareness, using therapy as part of your self-care plan. Or, you might not know what you need, other than that you need help finding out. As a counsellor, I offer you my empathy and my support.
At the core of my practice is the belief in people’s ability to change, to grow and find greater satisfaction. At times we all need help to see the obstacles in our way. I work with relationships challenges, anxiety, trauma, a lack of meaning or purpose, depression, self esteem and life changes – with both individuals and couples. My approach to psychotherapy and counselling is humanistic, drawing particularly on existential, psychodynamic and somatic frameworks. At the heart of my work is the relationship between therapist and client, and together we find the best way forward.
Hi, I'm Bronwyn. I am an integrative, empathic, person-centred therapist bringing holistic, somatic, creative and dynamic approaches to the intersections of anti-oppressive, trauma informed practice. I offer inclusive, accessible therapy that values every aspect of the client. This means that I view each client as a whole person with a unique worldview informed by the stories of their mind-body experiences. Each unique individual requires a uniquely individual approach and this approach is grounded in the principles of trauma care; safety, trustworthiness, collaboration, empowerment and choice.
