Kim Barlow-Miles Counselling

About Me

After a successful business career in senior management, I decided on a new path. I am now qualified as a Psychotherapist and Supervisor, registered with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) through the Sherwood Institute,Nottingham ( Post-Graduate Diploma and MA with Distinction in Humanistic Person-centred Psychotherapy, and Diploma in Supervision).

I am also accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and practice according to the ethics of both this professional organisation and UKCP. This means, for example, that my work is appropriately supervised.

I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Cognitive-Behavioural Psychotherapy and have a special interest in Compassion Focused Therapy. I integrate this training into my Humanistic Person-centred approach, and practice according to the priniciples of BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy), eg. as above, this work is also appropriately supervised.

After some years of integrating EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) into my clinical practice, I have now become an accredited Practitioner. This enhances my work with clients who have undergone trauma of different kinds, eg life threatening experiences and other painful events which have left an apparently indelible memory linked to a negative belief about oneself today.

My business background inspires my special interest in coping with change both in the workplace, and beyond, and work-related stress. This has led on to me specialising in counselling clients experiencing stress (more appropriately called ‘distress’) of different kinds, arising from difficult relationships, or a change in personal circumstances, or trauma as described above.

I firmly believe that we can all change, given the right support at the right time, and move on to live more fulfilling lives.
