ABOUT ME

BA Hons (Open) and MIBWRT(Adv) (MAPHP) Practitioner
Welcome to Kim Barden Therapies!
Life, how tough can it be? I have personal experience of living through the vicissitudes of life and so far managed to survive. And that is the key really isn’t it? Survival, but for many of us it is a struggle especially when we experience anxiety, depression, unwanted habits or feel that we need to lose a few pounds.Some of us want to bury our heads in the sand and hope it will go away, however, most of the time, the suffering only gets worse. I recognise that life is not constant and change is an inevitable part of our life, but understanding that doesn’t make it easy.

Whilst in Australia, I trained with Quantum Change Seminars in Advanced Neuro Linguistic Programming (ANLP) and Quit Smoking using hypnosis. When living in Seoul, Korea, I also trained with HMI College as a hypnotherapist and American School of Hypnosis where I achieved the status of Clinical Hypnotherapist and Mind Set Coach respectively.

With a degree in Humanities and Art History, I have a particular fascination with symbolisation and the subconscious mind; which is the best way to help understand people’s inner thoughts.

My passion for what drives human behaviour and personality has led me to research ways to produce quick, effective, yet safe results for my clients. So, when living in the UAE I came across Terence Watts (MCGI) – The Terence Watts BWRT® Institute, where I became a practitioner in the new and powerful model of psychotherapy Brain Working Recursive Therapy®(BWRT®). BWRT® is not a familiar therapy to most people but has been tried and tested and can help with those important life changes. It has had some good results all over the world.

I completed my Level 1 training when living in Dubai and began to realise how quickly and effectively BWRT® could help my clients and provide amazing results, even within one or two sessions*. Upon returning back to the UK I continued my training and studied BWRT Level 2 at Regents University, London and understand how powerful the technique could be using natural psychological processes to reroute neural pathways in the brain that lead to unwanted behaviours.

This is where I can help to make the change smoother and less troubling. I am passionate about helping people to become the best version of themselves – which is purely subjective and personal. I do this by actively listening and being compassionate. This is not about me prompting you, this is about helping you to discover realisations about yourself and reaching your goals. I have successfully helped many people over the years people who have experienced symptoms of anxiety, depression, weight management issues, unwanted habits and quitting smoking. Why not give me a call for a free 15-minute consultation.

I have professional liability insurance.

I am also full member of the Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (MAPHP).
