NAT: Therapy has been the best thing I have ever done. When I started I felt as if I didn’t know who I really was and lived in a constant state of anxiety and rumination. Since working with Kerry for six months I am now confident and much happier. I know how to manage my anxiety and I have strategies for when life gets hard. I understand what I value in life and make choices which enhance what I value – no longer will I repeat mistakes over and over again and engage in destructive behaviours.

ALAN: I found Kerry to be very perceptive and I really liked her structured approach. She made the problems that had overwhelmed me seem surmountable. This gave me the confidence to take back control of my life and not see myself as a lesser person for just being human.

MEGAN: I know we didn’t know each other for very long but you made such an impact on my life for the better and have taught me a lot.  I honestly wish you the best, you’re such an amazing person xx

PENNY:  Kerry is a literal lifesaver, unendingly kind and supportive, she understands so much about the real world and has such a vast knowledge and range of techniques to share.  I have recommended her to everyone I love because I sincerely believe everyone should be as lucky as I have been to find her.

SHAUN: I will always remember that you accompanied me on the most difficult journey of my life and gave me the help I needed to find what I asked for – a meaning to live by.

CHARLOTTE: Just thought a massive THANK YOU needed to be said for being my virtual sign post and putting me back on my feet and in the right direction.

TINA:  I think that your poem about Tim is absolutely beautiful and captures him perfectly – He would absolutely love it I know for certain and would love it included in the service.

TESSA:  Kerry is a warm and understanding therapist and I have found her easy to talk to. We have laughed a lot but I have also felt comfortable expressing my deepest, most difficult feelings too.  I have found ACT a very practical approach which is easy to understand and follow.  I am so very grateful.

ANN:  Thank you for guiding me into a brighter chapter in my life

ANGIE:  Thank you very much for giving me the tools and ability to help myself.  I have enjoyed the sessions and cannot believe how far I have come.

JAMES: I also want to thank Alex Coutts Fender, who brought professional editing skills and a fresh eye to the text. Ten Days in Rwanda.

NICOLA:  Kerry has helped me untie the knotty problems of childhood anxiety, trauma and learned bad habits that have made my life especially difficult since retiring.  Unravelling all of the negative stuff tangled up inside your head can take a long time and you need to be able to trust the person helping you.

GAIL:  With your skill and kindness you were able to help me move from a dark place into a place of light and laughter.

TIM: Thank you Alex.  Although reticent at first at talking to a stranger about things that were very private to mum she quickly grew to look forward to your visits and the opportunity you gave her to share her memories

LAURA:  Thank you for everything, I am in such a better place now and I have my book and sheets to refer to if I need them.

SUZE:  I really could  not have wished for a better service for Philip and although obviously very sad, it was also so nice to have my brother’s humour so very evident throughout.

HOLLY:  I couldn’t have wished for a kinder, friendlier and more down to earth person to learn from.  It felt like coming to see a friend.
