Kim Spicer UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and Relationship Counsellor
I have worked as a therapist for over 25 years in a variety of settings, including as a staff counsellor at a London teaching hospital and as a Counselling Service Manager for a CCG funded Mind organisation. I am experienced in providing short term focused counselling or longer term psychoanalytic therapy. I am qualified to see couples having trained with Relate as a relationship counsellor.
Currently alongside seeing individuals and couples I work as a clinical supervisor on a psychodynamic counsellor training course and provide private supervision for qualified counsellors/psychotherapists. As an organizational consultant I am experienced in facilitating various staff groups, including Reflective Practice Groups.
