Hello, I'm Kim Miles and I am an Integrative Counsellor, accredited and registered with the BACP, offering general counselling services to adults and young people at my private practice based in Fleet, Hampshire.
I understand that starting counselling may feel daunting, especially if you are new to therapy. You may be struggling to make sense of your relationships or perhaps you are trying to find ways of dealing with anxiety and stress. Sometimes it is helpful to talk with someone who isn't directly involved in your day to day life, in order to help you gain clarity and insight, as well as offering an empathic and non-judgemental perspective to your issue.
I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is at the heart of the healing process and I work to provide you with a warm, safe and genuine relationship where you can feel secure enough to explore whatever is troubling you, at a pace that feels right for you.
My counselling experience is varied and includes:
- Relationship issues
- Stress related issues
- Low self-esteem and lack of confidence
- Sexual abuse
- Bereavement and loss
- Work related issues
Whilst person-centred theory underpins my practice, I use an integrative approach which means that dependant on your needs and requirements, I will work flexibly with you to ensure you receive the right approach that suits you.
I am professionally qualified to degree level and accredited and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their professional code of ethics and good practice.
My private practice is located in Fleet, where sessions are held in a quiet cosy room, providing you with a relaxing and confidential space for you to explore whatever brings you to therapy.
If you would like an informal chat about how counselling may benefit you or you have any questions, please give me a call on 07532 444 416 or you can send me an email through counselling directory or my website, where you will find more information.
Training, qualifications & experience
My private practice is in Fleet, Hampshire where sessions are held in a quiet, cosy room, offering you a relaxing space to explore your thoughts and feelings. In addition to this, I provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the NHS as part of Talking Therapies.
Previously I have provided clinical assessments at a young persons charity and worked as a school counsellor in a secondary school, working with adolescents. I have also worked in an ocupational health setting, counselling employees of a large multi-national company.
This has given me considerable experience working with adults and young people who are struggling with a broad range of difficulties including; anxiety, depression, relationships difficulties, low self-esteem, bullying, bereavement and sexual abuse.

It is important that you feel comfortable with the counsellor you choose to work with, so in order to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you, I offer an initial assessment session for £20. If you are new to therapy, it can be daunting, so we will take the time at our initial meeting to explore whether this process is right for you, what your hopes are, any goals you may have and how counselling may help you.
Subsequent fees are £45 per session and sessions last for 50 minutes.
My private practice is based in Fleet and is close to the M3 (Junction 4a) and within easy reach of Farnborough, Farnham, Camberley, Aldershot, Odiham and surrounding areas.
Daytime and evening appointments are available.
Reduced rates available for students currently studying on a counselling course.
