Kim's way of working

Kim is a warm, empathetic and non-judgemental therapist who takes a person-centred and collaborative approach to her counselling/psychotherapy work with clients. She aims to provide a confidential space in which people can feel supported as they explore their issues and find ways to move forward in their lives. Kim appreciates that counselling can be daunting and she aims to build a warm and trusting connection with each person, which she believes is key to the counselling process. When working with young people, Kim uses a variety of play therapy and creative skills to allow space in which they can express themselves fully and help her understand their experiences.
