About Kim

Kim is white British, with Eastern European heritage. She is a Clinical Psychologist, DDP Trainer and author.

Kim has been impacted by a childhood living with a depressed mother and a hidden adoption story on her father’s side. Both were likely influences on Kim’s post qualifying choices which eventually took her to Worcestershire, England and the setting up, with social care and education colleagues, of an integrated service for children looked after and adopted. This in turn led her to Dan Hughes and DDP.

Mentored by Dan, DDP became the central intervention model for Kim, with a particular interest in the work with parents and caregivers. Kim continues to hold a small therapy caseload, mainly with adults impacted by developmental trauma.

Alongside this Kim offers DDP supervision and training within the UK and beyond.
