About me

I'm Kim and I am a Humanistic Counsellor, working in a Person Centred approach. Counsellor's don't fix your problems or issues and they can't magic them away. However, what we can do is to help guide and support you using specialised tools and techniques and help you to find your own way through, in a safe and warm environment. I work in a Person Centred Approach. However, dependant on client and their individual needs, sometimes I use tools and techniques from other approaches, such as the 'Psychodynamic' and 'Cognitive Behavioural Therapy' methods of counselling. I have been a Person Centred Counsellor for almost 4 years and have worked with issues such as bereavement, relationship issues, body image and low self esteem. I also specialise in survivors of rape and sexual abuse.

I offer open ended counselling, which means a client can come for as long as they feel they need to.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified to Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and have been a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) since qualifying. I work within strict professional and ethical codes of practice.

I work with clients presenting a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues and specialise working with survivors of Rape and Sexual Abuse.

Member organisations

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.
