Kim Youpa MBACP Registered and Accredited. Dip.Couns.
I am an accredited counsellor with BACP with over 12 years experience. I am also a Supervisor and hold a L5 Certificate in Counselling Supervision. I work from a Person Centred integrative model and practice from a room in my local church in Capel St Mary. I offer a safe, empathic, non-judgemental and confidential environment for you to explore your feelings and emotions. I work with individuals and couples across a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationships, self esteem, anger, bereavement and loss.
I initially offer 6 sessions but if you find you need more time, then that can be arranged. I work at your pace. I receive regular supervision and adhere to the BACP code of ethics. I am also a registered member of the Association of Christian Counsellors.
