About Kerri Parke
There are times when we all need someone to talk to. Working with a qualified counsellor provides an impartial, objective and non-judgemental space to empower you to work out the best solutions to the problems in your life, relationships and work. Counselling can help you with issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bereavement/loss, and stress.
My theoretical model is integrative, which means that I incorporate a number of different theories when working with clients, including person-centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic ideas, as well as others.
Please note: I see clients in my offices in Oval during the week, daytime and evening, including before work.
I have worked in administration for over ten years, all of which has been spent in the voluntary or public sectors. Previous jobs I have had include working as the Hate Crime Support Officer (including work on domestic violence) at the London Borough of Hackney, and as the Appointments & Referrals Co-ordinator at the Women’s Therapy Centre, where I helped set up therapy groups for women who had experienced childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence.

I am a qualified counsellor and have experience of working therapeutically with young people aged 11-18 in schools, as well as adults who have sought help with a wide variety of issues. I work both short and long term with clients.
I also have experience working with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) clients with issues relating to their sexuality and sexual identity, including those who have experienced domestic violence and sexual abuse and those who are HIV positive. Other issues worked with range from generalised anxiety and depression to relationship, family and work issues. My work with adolsecents includes issues around low self-esteem, bullying, exam anxiety, divorce, depression and anger management.
I am a gay affirmative therapist and my areas of interests include women and therapy, domestic violence, low self-esteem, working with black and minority ethnic (BME) clients, relationships, couples counselling and family therapy.
I have taken part in many continuing professional development activities covering issues such as domestic violence, forced marriage, therapy with gender and sexual minorities, child protection in therapy, eating disorders, alcohol
and substance misuse in the LGBT community and working therapeutically with suicidal clients.
