My name is Kim and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Psychotherapist, an IPT-UK accredited therapist; a qualified humanistic person-centred counsellor as well as an NMC registered Nurse (RMN/RGN) working with Think CBT in Colchester, Essex CO2. I also provide CBT online via Skype and video link.
I have a degree in health and social care and a PGCE in post compulsory education teaching psychology, health and social care and communication skills.
I have been working in mental health services for over 35 years in my capacity as a registered mental health nurse and Psychological Therapist. I have extensive work experience in general health care as a registered general nurse which has enabled me to fully understand the link between physical and psychological health and well-being. For this reason, I have a specialist interest in working with long term conditions.
My training and experience as a humanistic person-centred counsellor have enabled me to build an excellent therapeutic relationship when working with clients in all the approaches I offer.
Years of teaching developed the skill of differentiation which has made it possible for me to tailor my approach to meet the unique and individual needs of my clients.
I am a warm, approachable individual who works therapeutically to help you become the best version of who you are.
I aim to make those I support feel safe and secure and inspire them to make the changes they choose to make.
