My name is Kerry Rath, I am an International Society of Psychotherapy and Counselling (ISPC) student member currently studying level 5 Advanced Diploma in Counselling having already completed levels 1- 4 at Ridgeway College, Lincoln. Alongside this, I am completing a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I have a wealth of life experience both personally and professionally and my career has included hairdressing, self-employment, and over 16 years of working as a Specialist Domestic Abuse Worker in outreach and refuge supporting people in crisis who are living with or have fled domestic abuse. I have recently set up a peer support group with two former colleagues in the field of domestic abuse to support those who are no longer in an abusive relationship but still live with the long-lasting effects.
As part of my Diploma, I have to gain experience in person-centered therapy to support people who are experiencing difficulties and I receive monthly supervision to ensure I am working to the code of ethics of ISPC.
I can help you to explore and work through your worries so that you can feel happier moving forward. I work with a confidential, empathic and non-judgemental ethos and I strive to provide a respectful and anti-discriminatory service and endeavor to ensure this commitment is reflected in the counselling process.
Counselling will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and others.
