Kim works to assess the areas clients raise and help them find a space they are comfortable to approach these areas over a period of time.

Kim has a special interest in body image/low self-worth, anxiety and depression and some of the clients she has worked with have benefited from her empathic but challenging approach to self-worth and the internal viewpoint they hold.
