Hello, and welcome to my website. Let me introduce myself, with my picture and a list of areas of particular interest and expertise.
I am Kim Ward, a psychotherapist and trainer in Process Work or Process-oriented psychology. I have over 10 years experience of working with individuals and groups. I have a diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling with children and adolescents from the Northern Guild Psychotherapy. I am UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) accredited.
I have worked with children for 18 years as a teacher and I am very happy to bring counselling into the school setting and to work with children and young people in my private practise.
I work with mental health issues connected with abuse, trauma and the social oppressions which we keep us hidden.
I have much experience of working with issues around gender and sexual identity. I am fascinated by our connection between body/mind and how this plays out in relationships.
I have alopecia, a condition associated with hair loss. I am currently working on raising awareness around this condition and the wider area of how appearances impact our lives.
I have a keen interest in eco-psychology, in exploring our connection to the Earth and how this can deeply sustain us.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call me on 0131 661 0581 or 07964 238446. I can also be reached by email.
