About me

My name is Kim Morris and I am an integrative therapist based in Horsham at Kingswood Practice (hppt://www.kingswoodpractice.co.uk) 

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.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
