Kim Shaw

Counsellor in Chichester

I believe that I am able to bring a unique mix of therapy into the life of anyone who is struggling, whether directly or indirectly, with the often debilitating effects of an eating disorder. Having had my own previous experience, both as a sufferer and as a carer, I come not only with the relevant professional training and qualifications in this specific area of expertise, but also with profound personal perspectives and practical methods for both the fighting, and thankfully the conquering, of the battle ground that can exist inside our bodies.

Background & Qualifications

I am trained and fully qualified as a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders, as an Integrative Counsellor and Therapist, and as an Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Practitioner.

My Specialisms

I specialise as an Eating Disorders Therapist, and my practice in West Sussex is solely dedicated to those who are struggling with any type of eating issue (Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge-eating, Obesity and others), as well as to those who may be caring for someone with such a problem.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I work by appropriately mixing together various therapeutic techniques and skills, designed uniquely for you as an individual, because I want to help you to understand and accept why you are responding to your own world, through your relationship with eating, in your own particular ways. Underpinning my approach is Person-Centred therapy, which means I believe that you know yourself better than anyone else - what you feel and think, and how you experience your feelings, thoughts and behaviours, both towards yourself and towards other people. It will be important to have an initial session together, to see whether you feel you would like to work with me, and I look forward to hopefully meeting you in the very near future.
