Hi my name is Kim, I am a Psychotherapist, Mental Wellness Coach, Author: 8 Wise Ways to a Healthier Happier Life and Radio Presenter on Wellbeing Radio.

I work internationally, supporting busy, high performing people to improve their mental health and wellbeing, heal from past trauma and navigate life's challenges and transitions.

I understand life is tough and that there can't be a 'one size fits all' approach to solving the problems it throws at us or healing the scars it leaves. So I offer a tailored therapeutic experience to suit your specific needs at a pace that is right for you. As a qualified and experienced therapist, I offer a confidential service where you can feel safe and secure in the knowledge you can talk freely without judgement and will be treated with empathy and compassion.

My ethos is very simple: We can’t change the past. We can’t control the future or what happens to us. But we can learn to manage our reactions and create effective behaviours and thought patterns that lead to a more fulfilling life with less chaos.

After working with me, clients feedback that their mental health and overall wellness has improved, they experience reduced stress, anxiety, depression, negative thinking and burnout and their self esteem and confidence has increased. They reduce their risk of physical health problems linked to mental health issues such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke, and have the knowledge and tools to manage future life challenges, traumas and transitions, through my unique 8 Wise™ approach.

If you feel that now is the right time for you to work through your issues and make some positive changes in your life, then get in touch, I promise a friendly face an empathetic ear and a safe space for you.
