Kim Sturgeon MBACP
Hi, I'm, Kim, a integrative counsellor with an aim to provide a space to be... a space to be seen, heard and validated, to explore what might be troubling you, who you are, and how you might cultivate a life that feels meaningful & fulfilling.
Life can feel like a struggle, we may feel that we’re just not living the life that we’d like to. Perhaps you’re questioning who you are? Whether we have others around us or not, we can feel lonely and we may feel that we have no-one to talk to.
I always aim to hear what you have to say within the context of your life, and build a safe and trusting relationship in which you can be your whole self. What is important to you is important to me. I like to consider creative ways of making sense of who we are, this might include drawing, using figures, music or poetry.
I am currently able to offer online and telephone sessions via zoom.
I am not currently seeing clients for traditional face to face sessions in accordance with the Covid19 government guidance. However, I am offering socially distanced walk and talk sessions for clients who might find this appropriate.
For an informal chat or to ask any questions, please contact me via email.

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.

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).
