Kerry Daynes is a registered Consultant Forensic Psychologist with over 25 years of frontline experience. During that time, she worked in secure hospitals, prisons and community forensic services and was often invited to act as psychological specialist in major police investigations. Part of her day job still involves acting as an expert witness in court, for parole boards and training the police and other organisations. However, she now spends most of her time trying to affect change from the outside as a campaigner and advocate for better conversations around crime, justice and mental health. She is a patron of the National Centre for Domestic Violence and Talking2Minds and, as a survivor of stalking herself, has acted as a spokeswoman for the Suzy Lamplugh Trust's stalking-related campaigns.
Daynes is the person the TV networks turn to for expert true crime commentary. She has contributed to numerous high-profile documentaries on BBC, ITV, Ch4, Ch5, The History Channel, Discovery, CBS Reality, The Crime & Investigation Network, BBC International, Curiosity Stream, Netflix and more. She is also 'The Profiler' in the award-nominated series Faking It: Tears of a Crime, now in its seventh season.
Daynes lives in Cheshire with Captain Fur Potato, her pekingese-ewok crossbreed.
