Mary Kelly

I provide non-judgemental, open and honest support. I help people explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Together we can figure out healthier and happier ways of dealing with situations. I can help people understand issues in their lives or patterns of behaviour. My therapy sessions are a safe place where you can talk freely without fear of being judged or blamed. I have 20 years of experience working in care and educational settings. Previously I worked at ChildLine as a voice and online counsellor offering a listening service to children and young people. Since 2020 I have been working in various schools in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire supporting children & young people, staff and families. I have 3 children of my own aged 13, 9 and 5 and a 2 year old border collie named Star.
