Kimberly Tomlinson - TomlinsonTalks Ltd
Firstly I’d like to say well done to you for taking the first steps in your therapy journey, I know the idea of opening up can be scary.
I also know that choosing a therapist can be daunting because the therapist you choose will not only play a key part in your journey towards your end goal but also your overall experience with therapy. I offer free 30 minute consultations so you can get a chance to converse with me, ask any questions and see if you feel comfortable for me to take on the role as your therapist.
How I work: I am fortunate enough to have a diverse client range, this includes different ages, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. This has allows me to understand the importance of individuality and treating each client as their own person with their own problems, who need sessions and treatments aimed specifically at them so they can get the full benefit of therapy and make progress towards their goals.
Training, qualifications & experience
Training/Qualifications: I have a degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Professional Practice from The University of Salford.
Experience: Excluding seeing client’s privately, I work with the African and Caribbean Mental Health Services which is a charity based in Manchester as a person-centred therapist seeing clients in the evenings and on Fridays during the day. I’ve been working with this charity for nearly 2 years.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Weekdays: 9am - 9pm. Saturdays: 9:00am - 5pm. Message me for any other time slots, I’ll try to accommodate.
Due to Government guidelines and the constant change in lockdown restrictions, sessions and consultations will be done via phone call or video.
If you feel it is imperative to your therapeutic process for sessions to be face to face, please let me know. My flexibility on this must still cooperate with government guidelines.
