Kim Hamilton

 Kim Hamilton Counsellor Bournemouth


Kim is a highly experienced, BACP accredited counsellor with over 16 years experience with a whole range of mental health issues, specialising in anxiety and trauma-based work. Her background is in Management Training and Consulting and worked for several years in a corporate environment.



She has personal experience of older age palliative care therefore a deeper understanding of caring for the elderly. She has also worked with people who care for those with mental health issues as part of her work for Dorset Mind (2002-2012). This brings a particular understanding of the challenges of caring for someone with a severe and enduring mental illness.

She finds her work to be both challenging and rewarding. She works with the Gestalt method of counselling, which is a creative and experiential approach. Gestalt addresses the individual’s experience in the present moment and aims to help each client achieve wholeness by integrating the emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual aspects of self through the development of awareness. This method encourages a sense of inner peace and wholeness.

She is also fully qualified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) which is used to help recovery from traumatic incidents.
