Kerry Berber MBACP https://Kerryberber.com
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.
