H. Kerri Schad

Counsellor

Hi, I’m Kerri and I’m the founder of Hazelwood Counselling Services.

After quite a varied career, in many different industries, I decided to qualify as a counsellor and set up my own counselling practice. Because of my background I have real insight into the stresses and pressures of personal and work life that people face.

I am passionate about the work that we do; helping people who are struggling and in distress to take control of their lives. In my counselling work, I focus on each individual, giving them the attention and time that they deserve. This happens from the very first moment I am contacted.

At Hazelwood we provide a discreet, confidential, and safe environment. I personally work in a non-judgemental, empathetic way and my style is one of creativity, sensitivity with some positive challenge. The goal is to help people to live in a calmer, more peaceful way. To have a life where they feel more at ease and in control. I was awarded Distinction in my Advanced Dipolma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and I work with adults (over 18 years) and with couples.

I firmly believe in the work that we do here at Hazelwood and I’m certain of the difference it makes. If you come to see me or any member of the team I know you will be in good hands. We are here to help.

Fees per session:
£55 (individuals)
£60 (relationship counselling)

Danielle Entwistle

Associate Counsellor

Online sessions only

My name is Danielle and I believe counselling should be available to everyone. For most of us, there comes a time in life when we need support and a guiding hand. Although we might have a supportive family and caring friends, a counsellor is trained to accompany you on your journey, and help you find the best way through.

My background includes teaching at university and business management. It is at this time when I realised the importance of interpersonal skills, and when I found my true calling. Years before I had obtained a psychology degree but it is becoming an NLP practitioner and trainer that really showed me what was important to me. I then qualified as a counsellor with an Advance Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and became an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society.

I have worked in private practice for more than 10 years. I now have joined Hazelwood Counselling services. In this caring and supportive environment, I am glad to be able to offer, daytime, evenings and weekends appointments, to ensure more people can have access to our services.

Helping with:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Couples counselling
  • Family counselling
  • PTSD
  • Abuse
  • Low self-esteem
  • Midlife crisis
  • And much more

Fees per session:
£55 (individuals)
£60 (relationship counselling)
£70 (family therapy)

Donna Broadhead

Associate Counsellor

Sometimes we just know we would like to live differently.   Perhaps we feel stuck, unfulfilled, discontent and don’t know what to do or how to make those changes.  I can help you to understand what is stopping you from living the life that you really want and deserve. I will support you as you navigate your own way through troubled times so that you may emerge at the other side equipped with new tools which will help you face some of life’s obstacles in the future.

I can offer you a safe space to talk whilst I listen with a compassionate curiosity, without judgement. I will ask questions as you talk, with the aim of helping you to reach a deeper understanding of yourself.

My background includes various customer service roles before I qualified as a counsellor in 2016. Since then, I have had the privilege of working with a broad spectrum of individuals with a range of issues and have engaged in additional training to support my work.

My specialisms include:

  • Depressive disorders
  • Anxiety disorders, including exam/ study anxiety
  • Mood disorders
  • Adult ADHD
  • Addictions
  • Emotional Unstable Personality
  • Abuse and trauma
  • Self-harm and suicidal ideation
  • Cognitive-behavioural therapy
  • Coaching
  • Remote working

Emma Colclough

Assistant Associate Counsellor

Hi, thank you for taking an interest in my profile.  I’m Emma and I believe that counselling can be life changing.  As Hazelwood’s strap-line says, it’s “A positive step in the right direction”.

I have a background in working within education which I focussed on for much of my working life.  Just like everyone, I have grown and changed as a person and I have come to realise that I had another vocation – being a counsellor to help and support others.

I’m currently in my final year of qualifying and my professional body is the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy); I’m studying for a post graduate diploma in psychotherapy

Prior to this I was studying hard at the Berne Institute which is renowned for its approach of utilising the ways people communicate and function (both verbally and non-verbally) as the basis for counselling.

I am able to work within many areas including:

  • stress
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • bereavement
  • trauma
  • self-defeating behaviours
  • chronic illness

You can expect me to be understanding and supportive. My aim is to help you work through your worries and difficulties so you become more of the person you would like to be.  I offer a safe space where you can fully express who you are. I specialise in transactional analysis which focuses on the whole individual to promote personal growth and change.

If you’re still not sure, can I suggest you give Hazelwood a ring and speak with our founder, Kerri.  She will answer any questions you may have and explain a little more about Hazelwood and me as a counsellor.

Fees per session:
£40 (individuals)
£45 (relationship counselling)

Jack Jenkins

Associate Counsellor

Online Sessions Only

Hi, my name is Jack and I’m really pleased to be an Associate Counsellor at Hazelwood. I find it a privilege to work with people in therapy.

My day job is as a lecturer. I teach and assess counselling students who are studying for a degree in counselling.  Both these branches of my counselling career are important to me; one for directly working with people who seek support and the other for growing and developing the next generation of counsellors.

I offer my counselling service online. I hold the belief that technology may bring us together rather than keep us apart. Working online offers some convenience in accessing support.   From experience, I have found that clients and I can form good relationships online.

I can support you with many issues, in particular:

  • Self-esteem
  • Shame
  • Neurodiversity such as ADHD, ASD, Dyslexia etc
  • Carers
  • Stress
  • Conflicts
  • Bereavements
  • Depression
  • Anxieties

Counselling with me would be best described as a supportive conversation. I approach my work with sincerity, but I also welcome humour with clients. I endeavour to work together with clients to explore what is going on for them, together we bring clarity and make sense of what is going on. And I support clients in finding their own responses to life in the light of our explorations.

Fees per session:
£55 (individuals)
