“Insight and Awareness lead to better Choices and Outcomes”
It a courageous act to seek help, which means you have already initiated the first step in the healing process. My approach endeavours to provide a supportive space in which to unravel the challenges which create discomfort in our lives. Behind all our experiences are signals and structures which can be noticed and explored to gain insight and a call to action that can support greater health and wellbeing. This approach is informed by Process work and Narrative Therapy synthesised through the lens of many years of lived experience as both a Psychotherapist in service to a wide range of clients, as well as being a Spiritual Seeker on my own journey of personal discovery. I value the wisdom of the body and mindfulness practices, as well as sometimes including creativity and movement in the context of our exploration.
Specialist areas: Anxiety, Depression, Men’s Issues, Relationship, Sexuality, LGBTIQ+, Coaching & Personal Growth
Western culture is infused with strong Psychotherapeutic principles, which means many clients present with skills and awareness that can provide a fertile and productive base for our work - as well as those informed by their own personal growth or prior therapeutic engagement. I primarily work with short-term clients, favouring a 10-session commitment, which remains negotiable. There is limited access to a few health funds.
Introductory chat: I provide a 15-minute introductory chat to help you decide whether this approach would be a good fit for you and the challenges you are addressing.
Kim is artful in the way he navigates the entanglement of moments in the thoughts and emotions that make up our individual human experience. His spiritual understanding to reach out and tug on the fabric of reality we surround ourselves with. He guides you through turmoil with authentic attention and care, underpinned with pin-point precision that funds what always seems like the most important thing to focus on in the moment. I feel like I started to fix problems, but I continue to learn things about myself and life I never knew I needed to know.
I am in my early 60's. Having majored in psychology, and experienced psychological and psychiatric sessions, Kim stands out as a remarkable therapist and healer. In some extraordinary way, he is able to connect with the needs of the patient, not 'what the textbook says'. His care, kindness and understanding of the 'patient's pain' is balanced by respectful challenges and confrontations, which are essential if substantive healing is to occur. Thanks to Kim's brilliant work, I went from planning my suicide to now looking forward to the coming years. An extraordinary practitioner who has realised the power to heal.
Testimonial from 17 y.o. lesbian with long history of gender dysphoria, suicidality, self-harm and depression
In the past, I have worked with dozens of professionals, yet I never felt that my situation was changing or that I was moving forward. After being released from a psychiatric ward, I was referred to Kim by my psychologist. Hesitant at the time, I began to arrange weekly sessions, without much hope of things being different with him than the others. For the first few weeks, I would go to the sessions to make my parents feel safe and happy. But, after these few quirky weeks, I began learning things from Kim to help me handle hardships in my everyday life. I was able to open up to him as I would do with a close friend. After I started seeing Kim, I’d never felt so invigorated. He is not the typical psychologist. We’d do creative tasks and exercises in order to role play different parts of myself, helping me change things for the better. Every session, he’ll ask what I want to work on this week, allowing me to take responsibly of my life and my issues. I started to feel completely comfortable in his presence and began making tremendous progress for the first time. I finally felt that there was a future ahead of me and that I could make it through these hard times. I’d felt safe, supported and somewhat happy for the first time in years. I’d finally found someone who I felt wanted to help me and not just fix the problem. We were able to role play my different internal thoughts and how to challenge them in order to not allow them to take over me like they've done in the past. Kim's unique approach allowed me to feel comfortable and trustworthy of him. I can honestly sat that Kim has changed my life and I wouldn't be here without him. He allowed me to see myself getting through this and to look forward to the future I desire. Kim is one of the most amazing people I have ever worked with or even met and I am eternally grateful to have found him
“Kim has an engaging style that helped me to learn more about myself and how to change stuff that was tricky”
“He seemed to make the most complicated situations, seem to have a simple message that I could take home and apply in my every-day life.”
“I immediately felt a sense of calm, that made it easy to talk about whatever.”
“His work with sexuality and intimacy is definitely at the leading edge of anything that is around.”
“I felt held by a big heart, and given the strength to stand up and be counted.”
“It was great that we could develop some practical strategies to address my concerns. I think the homework was as important as our session times.”
“I felt like he was ‘real’, that he knew what I was talking about because he could also relate - unlike some therapists who seem a bit above it all.”
“I was surprised how much fun we had. He has a disarming creative style that really makes a difference.”
“What a relief to find someone I felt comfortable with, who seemed to understand me better than I know myself, and could give me the courage to make some changes.”
“If you want to make some changes, then Kim is your man. He has a sensitive and insightful mind, which can really shift the way you see things.”
He's a bit unconventional - but well worth it.
