Kerry is a qualified forensic psychologist specialising in working with violent and sexual offenders. She began her career at the notorious HMP Wakefield, a Category A men’s prison which houses a large number of high-profile, high-risk sex offenders and murderers.
This experience has led Kerry to being recognised for her ability to engage with, and treat, complex challenging and often dangerous patients. She is a published author and regular expert on TV true crimes programmes.
A victim herself – stabbed by a patient, stalked by a stranger, harassed by prison officers – these harrowing experiences have led her to work extensively with female victims of violence and trauma.
She challenges both the legal and mental health systems that disadvantage women and campaigns for changes in the laws around stalking and domestic violence.
