Kim Wylie Dip.Counselling. Individual and Couple Counselling. BACP Registered.
How Counselling Can Help
Talking about your thoughts and feelings can bring huge relief and help you to experience a greater sense of happiness and wellbeing.
My Commitment to you
I will offer you a caring, supportive, non-judgemental space where you will feel heard, accepted, respected and valued.
I am a professionally trained integrative individual counsellor; the foundation of which is Person Centred and I draw on the Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) approaches which means that rather than being led by one approach, I am guided by you and your needs. That said, recent research shows that the therapeutic relationship (the relationship between you and me) is more important than theory and this is central to my work. For couple counselling again my approach is integrative drawing on the work of Gottman, Dr.Sue Johnson and Harville Hendrix. I tend to lean more to the Imago Relationship Therapy (Harville Hendrix).
How I Work
A myriad of issues can make us feel "stuck" and I see my job as providing a safe place where you feel held whilst you review those issues. They will always be part of your story however as we work together the goal is that they become your history; no longer affecting the present or hindering your future.
I have a special interest in the imprint childhood trauma can leave on sufferers lives as they journey into adulthood. Symptoms can include lack of childhood memories, anxiety, panic attacks, eating disorders and depression to mention but a few. For Couple Counselling my special interest is in helping the couple rediscover each other and have a greater understanding of what has happened in their relationship; whether this is whilst working on affair recovery or feeling more like"friends than lovers".
Comprehensive Resource Model (developed by Lisa Schwarz, M.Ed. )
I have found the Comprehensive Resource Model(CRM) to be a very gentle and powerful model; particularly useful when processing trauma. CRM is a trauma therapy model that employs brain-based physiological safety as the foundation for healing. This model is a resourced based therapy and these resources enable the client to stay present as they remember without being flooded by negative emotions.
