Kim Davies Reg. MBACP
07732 875260 / 07732 875260
I’m Kim Davies, a person-centred counsellor based in Milton Keynes. Practicing since 2010, I have experience of supporting clients with a wide range of issues. Relational issues are a specialty so whether you are struggling with relationships with colleagues, family or partners, we can work through that together. I also have a lot of experience supporting clients to develop their self-esteem and confidence, or to tackle low mood and depression. I am also experienced at working with clients who worry a lot, have anxiety or perhaps are struggling with shyness or social isolation.
Equality and diversity are a passion of mine and I've worked a lot with gender and sexual diversity so you can be sure of an accepting welcome by me, whatever your background or identity.
Feedback from my clients suggest that I am a warm, intuitive and attentive practitioner, someone you can really be open with.
Firmly committed to ethical practice and professional development, I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and obtained the Certificate of Proficiency to evidence safe practice. I also undertake regular Continuous Professional Development (recent examples include learning about the Brief Solution Focused Approach and working with change during adolescence). I am also embarking on my qualification to become a Clinical Supervisor this year.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Level 5 BTEC Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and have been in counsellng practice since 2010. During this time, I have undertaken Continuous Professional Development on a wide range of issues, from self-harm and working with depression to sexual health and supporting those experiencing domestic violence.
Throughout 2016, I am undertaking an OCN accredited course in Counselling Supervision.
Underpinning my interest in social issues and diversity, my undergraduate degree is BA (Hons) in Sociology and Gender Studies.

We will begin with an initial session; this gives us a chance to meet each other, provides an opportunity to talk through what is going on in life for you and, importantly, time to explore your hopes and expectations around counselling. It creates a space for us to explore how we might work together and we can discuss the timescales for counselling too.
Initial sessions last up to 50 minutes. The fee for this exploratory session is £30.
After the initial session, if we decide to work together, we will then embark on regular counselling sessions. These tend to be on a weekly basis, usually at the same time each week, and will last for 50 minutes.
The fee for counselling is £40 per session. Payment is expected in cash at the beginning of each session or we can arrange for payment to be made by BACS in advance of the sessions.
If you would like to explore whether counselling could be of benefit to you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We can have an initial discussion over the telephone if you prefer, or we can book an initial session to explore how we can work together.
