Kerry J Miller | Pluralistic Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist
Leave a message and I will contact you as soon as possible.
Psychotherapy and Counselling Bridport
If there is anything bothering you, personal or professional, if you have difficulties coming to terms with your past, adjusting to change, you have health issues, you want to explore your values, or you just need to share your concerns in a confidential and supportive space, then I'm here for you. Our work can be short term and focused, or ongoing as needed, it need not be drawn out, rushed or rationed.
Please send me a message if you would like to know more or book an appointment.
I use Zoom. It's a very straightforward process: you download it onto your device and I send you an email with a link in it just before each session. Simples!
Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic
If you have a suitable outside space where we can stay dry, socially distanced, and we are not overheard (e.g. a stable, a barn) I can come to you, and during good weather we can walk and talk out in nature. Otherwise we can Zoom.

I meet with similarly qualified and experienced therapists and coaches for peer supervision and discuss my work with a senior accredited supervisor regularly.
It does not matter who you are, whether you know the cause of your issues or not, or whether you have diagnostic labels or not. I can work with you in the present to help you resolve current issues, manage unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and reacting, and explore how you find meaning and purpose in your life.
I have a particular interest in combat related PTSD and adjusting to life outside the military in my work supporting The Weymouth and Portland Veterans Hub.
