Kim Gregory, (MBACP, Adv Dip. Therapeutic Counselling)
Taking care of yourself can sometimes be one of the hardest things to do, we look after others and put off things we should do for ourselves. Recognising you need and deserve to take time for yourself is the first step. You've made it this far by coming to this site and that shows you are taking a step in the right direction.
More About Me
So, a little about me. My name is Kim and I am an integrative trained and qualified counselling therapist working in the Horsham area and I also work remotely via phone, email and online.
I am experienced with working with teenagers and adults.
How I Work
I am trained and work integratively, this means I am able to draw from a number of counselling and therapeutic modalities, e.g. person-centred/humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT modalities. Basically, this means is that I am able to respond to your needs and adapt to what works for you and what is most helpful to you. I offer short-term and open-ended counselling and am also happy to offer Single Session Therapy.
What happens when you contact me?
I am slways happy to answer questions and find that it's often helpful to have an initial conversation, on the phone or online, so we can talk about what you need and how we might work together to help you.
After that, assuming you are happy, we will arrange our first session. This can be in-person or online/over the telephone. I am trained in both face-to-face and online counselling. The first session is a great place to talk about what's on your mind, to get an overview of what is going on for you and then to work out whether you would like to continue with counselling and have weekly sessions. We can also decide how many sessions you would like. Sometimes, a single session is all that's needed, sometimes more sessions are helpful. There's no committment if you decide after the initial session that it's not for you and you can always return later if it's not quite the right time for you now.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
