About me and my therapy practice

Integrative Counselling Therapy - A space to help you heal and grow

Hello there, I'm Kerry-Ellen (Keri) : Therapeutic Counsellor PGDip BSc (hons) MBACP, of Keri Hestia Therapeutic Counselling.

How Do I work?

​I believe Therapy is about learning to navigate your life through understanding yourself, your experiences and your patterns at a deeper level.

Therapy opens up a place where you can come to make sense of what is affecting you and start to explore your feelings.

​I see the journey of therapy as an opening up of self-awareness, understanding of self, self-acceptance, and growth. Which enables us to ultimately transform the relationship we have with ourselves, with others and with the world around us.

​Humanistic therapy is primarily client-focused and relational, in that it works on the belief that the relationship between client and therapist is of paramount importance to the work.

I am also a Highly Experienced Speech & Language Therapist

I have worked for many years now as a Speech & Language Therapist in the UK (equivalent of S&L Pathologist in other countries).

In my work as a mental health & well-being practitioner I find the two worlds often combine: Many clients seek support with the social and emotional struggles of certain communication challenges such as Neurodivergence, Social Anxieties, Stammering or Articulation difficulties. I have found that the skills I have used in working with people from all walks of life as an SLT has been invaluable in my work as a Therapeutic Counsellor: to support them emotionally and holistically, as well as with excellent communication support.   I am highly skilled at working with a variety of communication needs including people with neurodivergence such as ASD.

I can work with children and young people

I currently work with young people of 11 years or older. I have worked with children and their families for 20+ years in my work as a Speech & Language Therapist and now as a Therapeutic Counsellor.

Practice description

Hello there, I'm Kerry-Ellen (Keri) : Therapeutic Counsellor PGDip BSc (hons) MBACP, of Keri Hestia Therapeutic Counselling.

​I work primarily as a Person-Centred, Humanistic, Counsellor which essentially means that in the therapeutic relationship with you I centre your individual and holistic experience of your own life. I also strive to guide you in how to value yourself, respect yourself and offer yourself deep compassion and care.

As a member of the BACP (and as a HCPC registered professional as an SLT)   I work to a strict code of Ethics for your safety and for the excellence of my work with you.

I currently work primarily online via video call so that I can provide a service to clients all around the world.

​I can also offer a few face to face sessions to Clients who can access South Sheffield in the UK, where I work from a lovely clinic space in the beautiful Fulwood region of Sheffield, close to Forge-Dam park and cafe. 

​The foundation of my practice is to offer you a confidential, warm, safe and secure environment, to look at what feels most important to you. 

Rewind Therapy: for Trauma & Post Traumatic Stress

Some Clients have specific Trauma that they wish to address, especially when Traumatic memories are intrusive and are triggered in ways it is hard to control. For that reason, I am trained in 'Rewind Therapy': a technique that enables Clients to process Trauma to find relief in a way that aims to reduce distress as much as possible.

I consider myself to be a trauma-informed therapist, in that I work to keep you as safe as possible from re-traumatisation during therapy and I am alert to ways in which traumas may appear (or be hidden) in therapy and how to support you to navigate this.
