My name is Kim Morris and I am an integrative therapist based in Horsham.
There are times in all our lives when we find it hard to cope – sometimes we know what is making life difficult such as loss or problems in our relationships. Other times the reasons aren't so clear. and we might feel empty or alone with troubling thoughts we don't understand.
Whatever is causing you distress, I offer you warmth and regard - and a safe space to express how you feel, be heard and explore new ways of living and relating.
My training is based on the Clarkson integrative model which means I use a range of different therapeutic approaches depending on what feels right for each individual client. My style is sensitive and considered and I offer a safe place where anything can be said; creating room for thoughts and feelings that might be difficult to share with family or friends, or perhaps those that have previously been shut down.
This might include:
- Looking at past events and their meaning for you
- Exploring your inner world - your thoughts and how they make you feel
- Understanding your childhood and how those early experiences influence your life today
- Looking at your ways of relating to others
I believe that counselling is a collaborative relationship between client and therapist that can bring about real lasting change. It creates an opportunity to make sense of your life story and explore how this relates to the thoughts and feelings that determine how you live your life. My role is to work along side you at your pace and with your agenda, creating greater self-awareness and putting you in a place to start considering change.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Sessions cost £50 each and are 50 minutes long
Initially, I offer a free 30 minute consultation. This is an opportunity for us to meet, explore some of the things you would like to get from therapy and for you to decide if you are comfortable for us to start counselling together.
I work both daytime and evenings during the week. Please contact me for information about availability.
