A LEADING Stockport psychologist will be sharing her expert opinion on some of the UK’s most horrifying murders in a new six-part TV series.

Kerry Daynes, chartered Stockport psychologist, speaker and bestselling author, will be the resident psychologist for all six episodes of Investigation Discovery’s Faking It: Tears of a Crime, when it returns on Friday August 18, 2017.

Kerry originally appeared in two episodes of the first season.

Each one-hour episode will unearth the deception behind the notorious real-life murders that shocked the world, including the Soham Murders and Cesspit Killer Ian Stewart, who earlier this year was found guilty of killing his partner, children’s author Helen Bailey.

Kerry, who has worked with some of the UK’s most notorious criminals, said:

“I was delighted by the public’s response to the first series; the expert analysis really gripped people and it achieved the highest ever viewing for the channel.

“The second series will be just as informative – and chilling.  We are unpacking what was really going on behind the tearful public appeals and court appearances, the protests of innocence are really quite jaw-dropping.  As with the first series, there will be fascinating insights into the tell-tale signs of deception.”

Kerry, whose book ‘Is There a Psycho In Your Life’ is a bestseller, is no stranger to television having appeared on This Morning and a number of documentaries.

Earlier this year Kerry appeared on the Channel 5 documentary, The Phillpotts: Five Years On where she concluded of child-killer Mick Philpott: “He’s manipulative, reckless, highly narcissistic and arrogant.”

Kerry spent the first part of her career working in forensic mental health settings. She quickly gained a reputation for her ability to engage with and treat complex, challenging and often dangerous patients, ultimately earning the dubious honour of having worked closely with many of Britain’s most notorious criminals.

In 2003, Kerry set up her own successful private practice. She was a trusted advisor to the courts and government agencies. She was invited to act as a behavioural analyst in major police investigations, where she was appreciated for her practical, no ‘psycho-babble’ style.

Kerry moved into more mainstream psychology services in 2013, becoming Regional Head of Psychology for a chain of independent Mental Health Recovery Hospitals. Her track-record for producing outstanding results attracts high-profile business leaders, sports personalities and celebrities as clients.
