Kim uses a number of tools and approaches from other therapeutic modalities such as CBT dependent on the individual client and their needs. 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 allows clients to be creative in her sessions and works with play materials such as art and toy work sometimes taking clients back to early childhood experiences where they can look deeper in to themselves.
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 emphatic but challenging approach to self-worth and the internal viewpoint they hold.
