Kerry trained with BRIEF International in 2019 by international experts in the SFBT field Elliott Connie and Adam Froerer (US) as well as Evan George and Chris Iveson (UK). Inspired by their teaching, Kerry has continued to engage in extensive training since then through the Solution Focused Universe by Elliott Connie, Adam Froerer and Cecil Walker, as well as with other Solution Focused experts Mark McKergow (UK), Jacqui von Cziffra-Bergs (South Africa) and Michael Durrant (Sydney, Australia).
Kerry is a member of the Australasian Solution Focused Association (ASFA) and is Co-coordinator of the SFBT Interest Group in Perth, Western Australia (WASFIG). Any mental health practitioners working from an SFBT approach, or interested in learning more about working from this approach, are most welcome to join us. Group meetings are held bi-monthly on Saturday mornings 9:30am-11:30am, currently by Zoom. Please contact Kerry for more information.
Kerry has worked in a variety of organisations across Perth since 2008, and currently works part time for an Employee Assistance Program.
Kerry’s counselling approach has evolved over time and is now largely solution focused. This orientation is a respectful, empowering and hopeful approach. SFBT invites you to notice what you would like to have more of in your life, how you have already brought this about in the past, and what strengths, qualities or values you can continue to draw upon to make this part of your future as well.
