She works part time at the GIC, seeing patients for assessments and individual psychological therapy, and also co-facilitates a support group.  Kerry works integratively with clients in therapy, which means her approach is based on a number of different models, depending on which she and her client feel best fits their issue and world view.  These may include Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioural and Existential modalities.  Kerry joined the GIC as a trainee psychologist during the final year of her Doctorate and became a permanent member of staff after she qualified in 2017.  In addition to this she has worked in sexual health charities and specialist and non-specialist NHS services.  Before retraining as a Counselling Psychologist, Kerry worked in homelessness.
