Kim Synclair has been working in the emotional well-being industry for over 10 years and is a qualified BACP Accredited counsellor. Kim has managed a number of highly successful drug and alcohol services in Thurrock and continues to be a Director for Therapeutic and Drug and Alcohol Services for Open Door, a very successful and highly regarded charity based in Essex.
Within this role Kim manages a number of services including two counselling services working with young people in Thurrock and Essex. She is also an experienced supervisor, supervising a number of staff within Open Door.
Whilst Kim’s experience initially was in the drug and alcohol field, she started volunteering for the very well-known City Roads in London and became passionate about health and nutrition a number of years ago.
It wasn’t until she went through a number of life changing events that resulted in her entering therapy herself that she started to gain a better understanding of her own emotional triggers to food. As she continued to see clients for lots of reasons, those that were overweight were battling with the emotional responses to food.
As Kim developed her practice, she realised she was already supporting and counselling people with unhealthy responses to food and KSL was created to allow more people to understand and take control of their overeating.
