During a difficult time in my life, a good friend of mine recommended Keri for counseling. I am very glad that I followed her advice and sought out Keri's guidance. Keri helped me process everything and taught me self-compassion and I learned how to change my inner dialogue. I really appreciated and enjoyed the tools and resources that she provided. I always felt comfortable discussing things in a non-judgemental environment. Keri is very kind and gentle in her approach and was always compassionate and adaptable to my needs."
I was first referred to Keri for counselling by my doctor and on reflection it's one of the best things I've ever done for my mental health. I saw Keri with a view to keep off any medication and deal with some issues I was struggling with. I have had some previous experience with counsellors where I didn't feel heard, but was able to talk very openly and honestly with Keri without ever feeling judged or brushed off. She asked all the right questions and unearthed a lot of pain I didn't even realise I was carrying around, which at the time felt horrible but ultimately helped me move on from what I was dealing with."
Keri is down-to-earth, genuine, and empathetic. When talking to her, I always felt that she was listening to me completely, that my experiences and core values were understood and affirmed. Keri really helped me start noticing patterns of thinking and acting that were not serving me well and to start creating alternatives. She was gentle and made me laugh along the way. After only a handful of sessions with Keri, I had a hard time fully remembering how down, anxious, overwhelmed, and stuck I felt when I first reached out to her. I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering working with a counselor."
