Kim McAllister Child And Young Person Counsellor/psychologist
I am a registered and qualified psychologist/counsellor, specialising in Play Therapy and working with Children and Young People. I am passionate about mental health and providing clients with the tools, interventions and skills necessary to tackle the challenges life throws at us.
I hold an enhanced DBS certificate on the update service and I am fully insured to practise and work in the Blackpool area.
I am available for contractual work and can work for companies/organisations as well as schools, colleges and universities.
In my spare time I volunteer two days a week as a child and young person counsellor and play therapist at a local donation based company and for Place2Be at a local high school.
I tailor play therapy and person centred therapy for clients aged from 5+. I believe mental health is just as important as physical health and that play therapy can open communication with even the shyest of children.

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.
