About

I have been a qualified counsellor for 6 years and has worked with clients of all ages from aged 5 up to 75. I have experience working with many issues including (but not a complete list) anxiety, depression, anorexia, child abuse, couples counselling, young people and teenagers and the list goes on.... Trained integratively, Kerry has many tools in her tool box to help you and is now also trained in EMDR. Working face to face in Hereford or online she provides a safe place for you to explore your feelings and what is going on in your life, and help you choose what changes you want to make to improve your life journey.
My specialty is EMDR, which was developed originally to treat PTSD and trauma. However, it has been developed to treat many other conditions including OCD, anxiety, depression, pain management, phobias... and the list goes on. I also offer other treatments, and integrate different treatments between the EMDR sessions.
I have extensive experience working with different conditions. I am passionate about helping my clients to achieve their goals and work very hard to make sure that this happens, whilst at the same time giving clients the space they need to talk about their feelings and issues. Let me help you achieve the life that you deserve.
