Kerry has worked in her field for over twenty years. She spent the first part of her career working in forensic mental health, including for the Prison Service and both NHS and public sector secure psychiatric services. She quickly gained a reputation for her ability to engage with and treat the most complex, challenging and often dangerous patients.
A Consultant Psychologist, Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, she is a Health & Care Professions Council Registered and Practitioner Forensic Psychologist too. She is also a Chartered Scientist and member of the Science Council.
In 2003, Kerry set up her own successful practice of Psychologists and Psychotherapists accepting referrals for family, mental health and criminal Expert Witness work and providing clinical services to various health and social care organisations. She acted as a psychological specialist in major police investigations, who appreciated her practical, ‘no psycho-babble' style. Additionally, she was trusted advisor to the government regarding the safe management of high-risk individuals.
Kerry lectured in Applied Psychology to post-graduate students at Manchester University between 2004 -07. She is a highly experienced trainer and expert speaker and published her first book ‘Is There a Psycho In Your Life'' in 2011.
Kerry moved into more mainstream psychology services in 2013 becoming Regional Head of Psychology for a chain of independent Mental Health Recovery Hospitals.
She is frequently asked to contribute to television, radio and news programmes in her capacity as an expert and has published numerous articles in the national press.
Her standing as a psychologist has attracted high-profile business leaders, sports personalities and celebrities as private clients. In 2016 she founded ‘Psycho-Logical' allowing wider corporate audiences to benefit from her unique and powerful approach for the first time.
Kerry is a proud Patron of the National Centre for Domestic Violence and Talking2Minds, a national charity treating PTSD in current and ex-members of the military and blue-light services.
And yes, she is a natural redhead – or as she likes to call it, ‘sex goddess, kick-ass flame ginger'!
