About Kym

 

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor, specialising in and passionate about the treatment of eating disorders and body image disturbance. Although I have specialist qualifications in these areas I am skilled and experienced in working with a wide variety of problems and challenges that may be faced during the course of life. For more information about my work with people with eating disorders please see my dedicated website www.eatingdisorderspecialists.co.uk


I work with people as individuals and integrate a variety of counselling and psychotherapeutic 

models in my work in order to best meet my clients needs; I also draw upon the use of the latest behavioural and positive psychology, ancient wisdom, mindfulness and creativity. My work is underpinned by the belief that given the right conditions people can heal and grow to fulfil their true potential.

 


People that have worked with me say that

they appreciate my personal qualities of compassion,

attentiveness, intuitive insight

and positivity.

 

 

I hold an Advanced Diploma in 

Psychotherapeutic 

Counselling and a further Masters 

Degree in Working with People 

with Eating Disorders

and Body Image Disturbance 

from The Tavistock and Portman 

NHS Foundation Trust. 

I am an Associate Member of the 

Tavistock  Society of 

Psychotherapists 

and a member of the British Association

for Counselling and Psychotherapy, whose 

guidelines for ethical practice I abide by.


I have a particular interest in working with the mind

body connection and have worked with Somerset 

and Wessex Eating Disorders Association since 2005,  most recently in the role of Clinical 

Lead, holding responsibility for the supervision, leadership and clinical development of the service. 

 

I am a visiting lecturer at Universities, where I teach sessions both for counsellors and for other professionals using counselling skills or knowledge of Eating Disorders.
