Kerry manages our counselling team and makes sure they’re delivering a professional and ethical service to our clients. In charge of two paid staff members and five volunteers, Kerry also carries out the initial assessments before pairing a client up with the most suitable counsellor.

After completing her placement, Kerry began working with us as soon as she qualified, became a manager in 2015 and has been with us ever since! She’s a psychotherapist so can work with people at a deeper level, decided on a case–by–case basis.

Kerry has had extensive experience of bladder, breast, lung and stomach cancer in her family so is well equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and empathy to help others and her team.

“In the future I really want to set up children’s counselling services, so children who are affected by cancer have someone to talk to. I’d love to get some therapy dogs as well!”
