About MeKim Peak
“Hi, I’m Kim! My goal for you is not just to treat your symptoms, but to get to the root cause of your problems to allow you to become your own therapist”
I have worked in the field of mental health for 20 years supporting and treating people who for a wide variety of reasons have experienced emotional or psychological distress.
I qualified as a Mental Health Occupational Therapist in 2001 and have spent the last two decades working with adults, children and adolescents within the NHS and Third sector organisations.
I currently work part time into an NHS CAMHS service as an Advanced practitioner/Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist alongside my private practice.
I am registered with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and with the Health and Care Professions Council which ensures I adhere to a robust professional code of conduct delivering high standards of care and professionalism.
Common problems I help with:
PTSD & Trauma
Body Dysmorphic Disorder
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Post Viral Fatigue
Children & Young People’s Psychological Difficulties
Anxiety Disorders such as Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Health Anxiety & Phobias
I specialise in providing collaborative, compassionate and empathetic personalised care to enable people to move forward and get the best out of their life by addressing and working on the problems they identify.
My goal for you is not just to treat your symptoms but to get to the root cause of your problems to allow you to become your own therapist
