Kim Philbey. Anxiety, Depresson, Borderline Personality Disorder,
Anxiety and Depression:
I work closely with individuals and couples, learning to understand anxiety and depression from their prospective, how they feel, what they believe, and how they see themselves in the world around them.
These two conditions are most common in our society, yet they are often misunderstood, with a person sometimes feeling out of control of their emotions, and behaviours. Both conditions can develop through receiving combinations of a biological DNA (through family), and / or through human environmental pressure, or trauma.
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD):
As a person who has lived for many years in the spectrum of BPD, I have an insight into the chaos and disruption this condition creates.
I treat patients individually, and offer a group experience with other sufferers, where people can share listen, support and learn together ways to reduce emotional dysregulation.
I specialise in the following conditions:
Personality Disorders through Clusters A - C, in particular Borderline Personality
Disorder (BPD) , Acute Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Behaviours (OCD), Narcissism, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Transgender Issues, and LGBTQ.
Self-Esteem and Confidence, Couples Counselling, Addictions (Drugs / Alcohol) , Panic Attacks, Work Related Issues, Grief and Loss.
Rape, Trauma and Domestic violence:
I work with patients who are victims of severe traumatising events. Often these experiences leave a post traumatic disturbance on the the individual, family or group. Those affected frequently have a feeling-memory of the event that can invade their life on a daily basis. Using Integrated Psychotherapy and Counselling, I am able to work with people sensitively, in order to help them begin work through their critical experience.
Relationships and Sex Therapy:
I also specialise in Sex Therapy and Relationships, working with an individual or couple sensitively in order for them to work towards feeling free to experience the pleasure of sex, intimacy, feeling happy and confident.
Generally people experience intrusive thoughts. To what degree they experience them can depend on a number of factors, though a prior lived experience, a now experience, or a projected and believed future experience.
The intensity of these thoughts can be overtly distracting, and become life changing.
Working constructively and applying an integrative Psychotherapy approach and CBT, can reduce the thinking and physical behaviours that have formed over a period of time.
Anger and Grudge Keeping:
This is an area that affects many people. Learning to understand these behaviours and explore how or where they may have originated, can enable a person to begin to reduce stress and anxiety that sits in the background of each day.
I work with patients practically with this subject, and encourage and support a learning experience in the consulting room, the home, workplace, and during leisure time. This approach can lead to further understanding of self, and provides an opportunity for change.
As an Integrative Psychodynamic Therapist, I use a variety of therapeutic models when working with patients. I practice Relational Psychotherapy, and incorporate the models of Existentialism, Psychodynamic Transference Focused Psychotherapy, Humanistic Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Transpersonal Philosophy, and Mindfulness Therapy.
My private practice assists both attending and non-attending patients to Rosemead Surgery, I work with patients both in the consulting room, work place, home and community.
I work with patients from age 16 upwards.
