“I found Kerry at a very challenging time in my life, following several bereavements and other life events that had caused me pain which I was unable to move through. Kerry guided me, safely, through both body and thought, to a state of greater understanding and clarity about the nature of pain and ways to take a different view of our own internal worlds. She taught me the importance of recognizing and listening to my body and its unconscious wisdom. Kerry’s approach is gentle, assured and secure but at the same time, powerfully effective. I will not hesitate to recommend her to people I know in need of a safe and gentle space within which to heal. Thank you” . Nory – June 2, 2018
“Kerry’s warmth and genuine concern put me at ease and allowed me to open to the counselling process fully. Her counselling has allowed me to make great strides in a short period of time. Her observations and attentiveness allow Kerry to make “actionable” insights which I’ve been able to employ every day. Time with “SoulSynergy” “now known as The Body Speaks” has made a huge difference to my life. I’m tremendously grateful.” Leo – 2021

Ebony – 2015

She works with art and movement as a way to access our deepest selves and facilitates workshops for these. She is an inspiring poet that touches on the fragility and strengths of the human spirit and will be preforming these at Buddhafield and Port Elliot this year 2018”.
The synergy between people can create magic as well as the relationship we form with our bodies. It is that heart to heart connection, our hearts medicine, our conscious presence, the mirror and the loving compassion generated between people and for ourselves that can take us deeper. Just as nature or our bodies knows how to heal itself naturally, so do we on a mental and emotional level. Only society, conditioning and life experiences have taught us to forget this innate knowledge. Her work is to support in bringing that knowledge back. To offer a safe space to explore more of who we are with out judgement. A deeper self awareness offer us more control over our patterns that prevent us form living the life we want.
She completed her Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2011. Moreover, she has counselled many clients and is working towards her accreditation. She has also had many hours in personal therapy with different therapists and modalities. Additionally, she has been practising Reiki since 2010 and qualified as a Reiki Master and has also studied sound as a form of healing.
She has Degree in Fine Art and has been using this as a therapeutic means to support others since 2001. She has worked with children and adults who have been sexually abused for three years in different settings. She trained with Ad-Action to support those struggling with drugs and alcohol abuse. She has volunteered with Penhaligons friends and did thier extensive training in bereavement for young people and their families. She has worked with those struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD and co-dependency as well as people with eating disorders.
She is has facilitating adult play, improvisation workshops, and is still facilitating inclusive workshops for art, improvisation, movement, dance and performance. Merging the worlds of performance, creativity and self development. This offers us a place for connection and deeper self exploration, intuition, spontaneity. A safe space for risk taking, listening and self expression.
She continues to use art in its many forms, as a therapeutic means for herself and others to explore ourselves more deeply. Or use it to unwind, communicate ourselves or just be with what is.
When she is not working, she enjoys writing, walking with her dogs, mediation, friendships, family and nature. She love to express herself through different mediums such as her poetry, art and dance. She eats healthy and tries to live a conscientious life.
She has transformed a lot of her shadows by bringing them into the light. There is nothing to fear in understanding our shadows as life will always contain the contrasts. Darkness is only the absence of light, and it is light the casts every shadow.
Much Love from
