Testimonials

From individual clients

It's been an incredible journey for me. You were here for me at my most vulnerable and painful. You 'walked' by my side, quietly. You listened wholeheartedly. You provided practical help and support. Now the journey has come to an end, I am so grateful our paths crossed at the right time. (Name withheld)

Feedback from Supervisors

I have been impressed with the quality of her counselling and her ability to connect and build relationships with young people and parents. (Rebecca)

Kerrie facilitated the group with the utmost respect for the participants and their needs. Her energy and obvious enjoyment of this type of work coupled with her democratic facilitation style provided the group with an enjoyable and motivating session. (Di)

During our sessions I have found Kerrie to be open, honest and insightful. She comes across as genuine and genuinely caring - a huge asset for any therapist. It is clear that she truly cares about her clients and feels moved by the struggles they face in life. She is very conscientious: I have never felt that with any client she had eased off and was just going through the motions - she always wants to help them turn their lives around. (Richard)

Counselling

After working with me, one client felt moved to write this poem about what our counselling sessions meant to her. "Once a week" was written by Gazelle, and is reproduced with permission.

Once a week

Once a week
One on one
My time. My space
One hour
That's all

Once a week
One on one
My Time. My space
One hour
I sat in silence

Once a week
One on one
My Time. My space
One hour
I begin to draw

Once a week
One on one
My Time. My space
One hour
I begin to paint

Once a week
One on one
My Time. My space
One hour
I begin to cry

Once a week
One on one
My Time. My space
One hour
I begin to trust

Once a week
One on one
My Time. My space
One hour
I begin to talk

Once a week
One on one
My Time. My space
One hour
I have cried, sat in silence, talked and reflected

Once a week
One on one
My Time. My space
One hour
Once a week
