Kerry Berber MBACP

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (M.B.A.C.P) and I adhere to their ethical framework and guidelines. I work on a one to one basis with adults from 16 upwards from my office in Weston-super-Mare.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I can draw upon different theoretical approaches and interventions to ensure that each individual client gets to work in the best way for them. I can work with clients struggling with many different issues including stress, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, relationship difficulties, trauma and neurodivergent conditions.
I have a great deal of lived experience, and knowledge of, autism and ADHD. One of my children was diagnosed with ASD & ADHD a few years ago now, and since then we have been on quite a journey of discovery. I found that the more I read about these two conditions, the more I could see it in myself and, as a direct result, have just received my own formal diagnosis. I am acutely aware of how these conditions, whether diagnosed or not, can have a huge impact on a person throughout their life and how parents are impacted by their child’s diagnosis and needs.
Many of the clients I have worked with don’t have a formal diagnosis, but suspect that they may have ADHD or ASD and want to explore what that means for them. Some may be on waiting lists for formal assessment and some go on to receive a formal diagnosis. For others the increased self awareness and self worth they gain from counselling is enough.
Whether you’re neurodivergent or neurotypical, you are equally welcome.

Becky Hall MBACP

I provide creative therapy and counselling for children, young people, and adults.   Being a
humanistic integrative counselling therapist, means I can use different techniques to work
with each client. I believe people are individual and one size does not fit all, so one style or
technique will not necessarily work for every person.  
Sometimes it can be hard to find the words to express how you are feeling. I have found it
can be beneficial for clients to have access to creative therapy if they would like to give it a
go as words are not always easy to find. I am a member of the Creative Counsellors
Community as colouring, drawing, doodling, painting, and other creative tools can work
really well as a creative aid. Creative therapy works well in person and online.  Counselling
works well in all situations – over the phone, online or face to face.  I provide therapy face to
face in Dorset but Nationwide on the telephone or online.
I believe that the relationship is crucial to ensure that therapy feels safe enough to explore
the deepest parts of your life. I offer a non-judgmental, safe, and confidential space for you
to explore whatever is going on for you. Nothing is too big or too small for this space.
As a neurodivergent therapist, I have experience in working with both neurotypical, and
neurodivergent individuals, as well as those with learning and other disabilities. I don’t feel
that anyone should be excluded from accessing therapy to make changes which could
improve their lives. Reaching out is scary but could be the first page in the new chapter of
your life story.

Stephen Stokes MBACP

My name is Stephen Stokes. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and
Psychotherapists (MBACP). I was only diagnosed as neurodivergent late in life. I have found
that many of my clients have a specific diagnosis already or are seeking one. I enjoy working
with a broad range of clients some of whom are neurodivergent and some are not.
Whilst we may see the world through our own eyes, and I may see it subtly differently from
another neurodivergent person, I believe it is important to recognise that because we are
different from some people, we are not wrong, and we don’t need ‘fixing’. We just need
If you would like to get in touch, please do so. Most of my work is online and I have clients
across the UK and Europe. I work with children & young people, and adults of all ages.
Please have a look at my website for further details.
Thank you.

Alison Clist, MBACP Accred

I am a qualified, BACP accredited counsellor and a neurodivergent human. I have ADHD and have been working as a counsellor for amost 15 years.

As a pluralistic counsellor I believe it’s important for the therapy to be shaped to your individual needs. Tailoring your counselling specifically for you means I can adapt multiple approaches and research to help you meet your therapy goals. Please see my website for more information.

I am based in Bristol and can offer counselling in person or online. All my work is trauma informed. I am non judgemental, size inclusive and am a LGBTQ+, CNM and Kink friendly counsellor.

Lucy Gordon BACP (Accred)

Hello, my name is Lucy and I can provide you with a friendly, supportive and highly experienced psychotherapeutic counselling service. I am also a qualified counselling supervisor. My office is based in Plymouth and I can provide face to face or online appointments.

I have been providing  support for over 15 years and established my own counselling support service in 2015. I have successfully helped many people explore and work with social anxiety, depression, neurodiversity, stress, general anxiety, loss, loneliness, social isolation, low self esteem, anger, relationship problems, gender dysphoria and other similar issues.

I have a particular interest in working with adults who struggle with low self esteem and/or social anxiety or who identify as neurodivergent . I have a lived experience of being neurodivergent and a special interest in the topic of neurodiversity. I aim to provide a neuro-affirming environment for our work together 🙂

If you are diagnosed, self diagnosed or identify as neurodivergent its important to validate that this is part of your identity and to celebrate your strengths whilst working to overcome things that are challenging. Standard CBT techniques may not be hugely helpful as they are based on identifying and changing thought patterns. A neurological processing difference may mean that those thought patterns are an awesome part of you who you are…. we just need to make them work for you rather than against you! I can help you with that 🙂 I understand how to adapt therapeutic methods to suit a neurodivergent brian.

I wholeheartedly welcome anyone from the LGBTQI+ community and aim to provide a gender-affirming environment.

Successful therapy can be achieved in a way that suits your needs. I can provide short term counselling, or if you prefer, I can provide medium to long term psychotherapeutic support. I offer weekly, fortnightly or monthly appointments.

I very much look forward to hearing from you and hope that I can help support you to feel happy, empowered and autonomous in your own life.
