Hello, I am Rob Kerley a qualified counsellor and hypnotherapist.

Why choose me?

There is no doubt there are many experienced, knowledgeable counsellors working effectively with clients. I am passionate about counselling and have seen the incredible difference it can make to people’s lives as it has done mine.

As a counsellor I am not there to judge, or to sit you down and tell you what to do – instead I will encourage you to talk about what’s troubling you in order to uncover any root causes and identify your specific ways of thinking. I then work with you to create a plan of action to either help you reconcile your issues or help you to develop coping strategies. This will help you manage difficult situations and feelings more effectively.

Making the decision to seek counselling can be difficult for people as they may be a little fearful of what to them is an unknown. It takes courage to take the first step but the reward can be life changing and I would very much like to work with you and to help you achieve your goals.

I offer a warm and relaxed approach. This is also on a ‘risk free’ basis – if after our initial consultation you don’t feel I am the right counsellor for you I will refund my fee and you are not tied to any more sessions with me.

Testimonials from clients -

“I plucked up the courage to call Rob and as soon as I heard his wonderful calm voice I knew I had made the right decision.” GC

“Rob is extremely gifted at what he does. He has a very rare skill of getting to the heart of the issues whilst still remaining impartial. I’m sure other counsellors would do that but there is a warmth to his counselling that makes you feel so at ease.” KN

“Rob has been a great help to me, with clear goals, non-judgemental, supportive, client-centred counselling. He offers the chance to unwind and offload, discover for yourself a way forward and deal with the problems that currently overwhelm you.” HD
