Counselling and Psychotherapy for People with Disabilities

Disabilities can pose significant barriers to daily functioning. For many people with disabilities, the biggest challenge they face from living with a disability is not the disability itself, it’s the way society responds to it.

About Kim

Kim’s journey to help others has been a varied path, beginning with a journey within herself. From a childhood wrought with difficulties to an unconventional path into education, healing, and defining happiness—Kim’s path has been anything but easy.

Kim brings with her a unique approach to clinical hypnotherapy and healing that can only be brought about by someone who’s walked the walk and done the healing herself.

Kim has spent over 30 years in fulfilling career roles where she’s helped support vulnerable people with disabilities along with their families. It was during this time that she found her passion and realized that she’d like to bring healing to others, which motivated her to further her education and focus on clinical hypnotherapy counselling, psychotherapy and yoga.

Thank you Kim for helping me to overcome my anxiety and frustration from the choices I made in my life.

I have learnt to slow down and give myself time to stop and think about what I want in my life.

I am making better choices now.
Janine D, Mortdale.
Kim is such an accomplished, caring & deeply knowledgeable counsellor/clinical hypnotherapist. She genuinely cares for her clients & works with them to understand the root cause(s) of the problem(s).

I have felt so relaxed & trusting in her presence & abilities...and have achieved fantastic results with weight loss & behaviour modification through sessions with her.

That said, although working with somebody as skilled/compassionate as Kim is really effective, clinical hypnotherapy (like other therapies) is an ongoing process so it’s awesome to have someone like Kim on your side/backing you.

Thanks Kim - you’re amazing!
Brad Marsh

Kim helped me cut down on sugar through hypnotherapy and surprisingly it helped a lot.

I will be back for more treatments as I found her to be very warm, welcoming and trusting.
