A bit about me…

Kim has a love of drawing, painting anything creative really! In her spare time, you’ll find her walking in the countryside with her golden retriever when she’s not building dens and going on adventures with her two young boys.

Session Comments

Derby GP Specialty Training Programme


Just to say a BIG THANK YOU for a great event in Sheffield. Everyone was very inspired by the afternoon of chimp training. Staff have named their chimps and have been buzzing with a new enthusiasm. They really appreciate that you did this for Sheffield, and I am sure our Sheffield children and young people will enjoy and benefit from working with our staff with their new approach and ideas.

I have seen lots of chimp cards around bases to remind staff of the strategies you presented on the day. Staff are very actively thinking about their chimps and their initial responses in their daily work.
