My name is Kerry Lilley, and I feel privileged to be able to do this job. My clients trust me, telling me things they may never have told anybody else. This can feel like a weight has been lifted from their shoulders. I help them increase their understanding whilst enableing an openness to learning new and better ways to create a much brighter future. I’m not sure what other job I could do that could offer me such a rewarding career!
I am a qualified BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and also offer EMDR. I have a busy private practice just outside St Neots and Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire. I regularly undertake further training and have monthly supervision to ensure my practice continually develops.
Over the last fifteen years I have gained much of my experience working with a variety of people in various settings that include the NHS, Social Services, charities and forensic settings. Subsequently, I have had some amazing opportunities to work with a variety of adults and adolescents as they work towards improving their lives and futures.
My very relaxed, but professional, approach enables me to form strong therapeutic relationships with those that I work with. Forming connections in this way is something I am very proud of, as it allows my clients to feel at ease and be open to what I have to offer. The satisfaction I feel when I see the changes in my clients is what drives me to get up every day and do it all again!
We are able to offer the following approaches to help support you with a variety of difficulties.
CBT – In comparison to many other types of psychotherapy and counselling, CBT tends to be more focused on the here and the now and examining the link between thoughts, feelings and then subsequent behaviours. We can find ourselves doing things which we think make us feel better. However often these only help in the very short term whilst actually increasing the difficulties we experience in the long term. It helps to identify and explain why we do certain things and how these may be impacting our wellbeing. Over a short period of time it can help us understand unhelpful cycles that we may be stuck in and support us to develop new skills & techniques to help improve wellbeing.
