About Kerrie

BA Humanities, Dip Hypno-Analytic Psychotherapy, Dip Prof Counselling (current)

I can't remember a time when I wasn't curious about how we work, what makes us tick. Of course, when I was younger, I devoured every new self-help book that came along, but never quite found anything that made any real difference to how I was actually feeling (turns out it was anxiety). I could understand the concepts of the various therapies, but applying them long term to my life seemed impossible.

Unsurprisingly, I was drawn to study counselling, and various other therapies, both to learn about me and how to help others. Most recently, for ten years I ran a successful Counselling and Clinical Hypnotherapy practice. Hypnotherapy is a fabulous treatment and can really help. My studies in clinical hypnotherapy and psychotherapy have given me a good insight into the way our subconscious mind works.


Then I was introduced to Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). It worked on my anxiety.

Finally! A therapy that has a distinct outcome, a therapy that you don't have to understand or believe in for it to work. A therapy that doesn't require you to consciously change your thinking or feeling to make changes.


As an early adopter of Emotional Freedom Techniques, I studied Level Two with the AAMET and undertook many other EFT courses and workshops. Once I introduced EFT into my practice I noticed the upswing in my client outcomes. My clients loved working with EFT. So did I.

I am excited to be able to offer you this impressive combination of counselling, EFT and clinical hypnotherapy, with a focus on how we women experience the world.
