My practice

Hello, thank you for visiting my website. I’m Kerry and l am a person centred counsellor working in Frome and Bath for both short and long term counselling.

My approach is person centred. I provide a safe space where you can talk about what you need to and what you’re struggling with at this point in your life. Together we can start a conversation about how we can work together to support you and work towards happier living. Painful feelings and reactions can get in the way of living. When someone listens and is fully present with us, we can listen to what hurts inside.

Learning to hear ourselves, with compassion accompanied by a caring other, can be a very healing process. New ways forward emerge, you become more able to cope, make decisions you couldn’t before, or express yourself as once you could not. It may be surprising to discover what held you back. We all have inner knowledge of what’s right for us. I will work with you to find your inner resources so you can navigate your life with less stress.

 

Why counselling?

Making sense : however stuck or unhappy we feel, however scary or deeply distressing our experiences, these make very good sense when we understand them as a natural reaction to what life has thrown at us. This includes childhood experiences, losses, painful dilemmas in adult life, as well as the social and economic conditions we are living in, or society’s view of how we should be. 

You may also want counselling because you are experiencing life in ways that are hard to describe. Feeling stuck, feeling life has no meaning, feeling numb, feeling reactive to everything, being in conflict with others or yourself, having difficulty making decisions, feeling unfulfilled. You may feel there is more to life, but don’t know how to find it.

I can help with depression or feeling low, anxiety, anger, feelings of loss or bereavement, parenting issues, work or the lack of it, relationship difficulties, loneliness, discrimination, gender identity, lack of confidence, low self esteem, addiction, self harm and growing older.
