What parents have to say about working with Dr Kerry Taylor…
“I was struggling to manage life with an energetic and demanding toddler. I had become increasingly frustrated that all my efforts to improve our relationship seemed to fail. I felt quite hopeless and disappointed that I couldn’t enjoy being a mum.
The sessions with Kerry were incredibly helpful. She was quickly able to identify issues that were significant to us. A variety of techniques were used to help and support me in working though these; sometimes talking though day-to-day difficulties with practical advice and sometimes more cognitive behavioural techniques. Kerry helped me make links between my son’s behaviour and my own and the effect that some of my more deeply held beliefs were having on the dynamics of our relationship. This was interwoven with an increased understanding of my son’s own unique personality as well as the impact of his developmental stage.
Week by week things improved for us – it felt miraculous and was a huge relief. Life was transformed from an exhausting challenge to being thoroughly enjoyable and manageable. Along with a greater understanding of myself, I now have a selection of practical techniques that I know I will be able to use again in the future if I have any difficulties.
I cannot thank Kerry enough. She has been very empathetic and understanding. Her great experience in working with parents and young children is evident. I had done a lot of research trying to find the right person to help me with these issues and after studying many CVs, I found Kerry. I made a fantastic decision in working with Kerry and would not hesitate to recommend her to any mum (or dad) in distress!”

“I would like to take this opportunity to really thank you, Kerry, as I have used your ‘methods’ in many daily events. To this day I really believe you made a wonderful contribution to helping me through a challenging period. (My son) is wonderful and a joy in my life, a reason to be 100% happy.”
