Two New Counsellors Join Kernos

Ever increasing demand for counselling services in Sudbury and the surrounding area has prompted the appointment of two new counsellors by the Kernos Centre.

SteveHughesannColtmanSteve Hughes and Ann Coltman joined Kernos in August.

They are currently undergoing an induction programme prior to taking on their full counselling responsibilities later this year.

Steve holds a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling and a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, whilst Ann has a BA (Hons) in Counselling Studies, a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and a Certificate in Person-Centred Art Therapy Skills.

Like all Kernos counsellors, Steve and Ann are both members of the BACP, the nationally recognised, accredited professional counselling association of which the Kernos Centre is also an organisational member.

Kernos Director Chris Boatwright is delighted to have made the appointments: “The addition of Steve and Ann to the Kernos counselling roster will enable the Centre to better serve the local community, where the requirement for our services continues to grow apace”.
