While working in a holistic manner, Kim’s area of interest is mental health and wellbeing, and she continues to work in a clinical capacity supporting people who are dealing with trauma related issues, anxiety, and depression. As well as working with individuals, Kim specialises in working with groups and believes that when facilitated appropriately, the dynamic of a group setting can be a powerful therapeutic force. Kim uses a person-centred approach in her clinic and is constantly in awe of the healing capacity of authenticity, unconditional positive regard, compassion, and empathy.
