Hi my name is Kerry.
I am a mother of three, a counsellor and an educator.
I work in a holistic way to encourage the comprehension of thoughts, feelings and how to express them.
After years of working in traditional counselling, I combine psychology, life experience and critical thinking to educate youngsters about mental health and to equip them with tools to support their mental well-being. Listening to youngsters is often overlooked and feeling heard is so important when growing up. Empowering our sons and daughters to be free to express themselves, being listened to and feel they are able to speak about their feelings and to explore them is vital and enables a healthy mind.
Sessions – what to expect?
A weekly group activity of mental health and wellbeing sessions.
Some examples of what we will discuss and explore
What are emotions?
Circle of worry (thoughts, feelings and behaviours, all linked)
Challenging negative thoughts
Journaling for well-being
Meditation and mindfulness
Breathing techniques to support well being
Taster session on 6th April at 2.30 pm (45 mins)
Has your son or daughter become withdrawn, or have they displayed a change in their mood? Have they experienced a life event or change which has affected them? If you are concerned, maybe talking therapy may help:
Talking therapy can be family sessions or 1 to 1 for your son or daughter.
The aim is to provide a safe space to identify thoughts, feelings and behaviours. To talk about worries and issues that may be difficult to discuss with friends and loved ones.
I will facilitate a non-judgemental environment that will allow openness, honesty and support.
