‘Take back control of your life’

Kim Rutherford created Dalton Wise Coaching and Therapy to provide a blended therapy approach to support you ‘take back control of your life’ through developing; problem-solving skills, coping mechanisms and personal development tools to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and prevent mental health issues from escalating.

As well as having over 30 years’ experience of living with and living with others with mental health issues, Kim is also a qualified coach, therapist and trainer, with a career spanning over a decade in corporate business at a senior level. After a car crash in 2014 Kim started to experience mental health issues related to anxiety and depression that led to agoraphobic behaviours and panic attacks. It was after she took a wellness sabbatical from her senior role within Health and Social Care in in 2016, that she chose to leave her corporate career behind her and set up a private practice to support those, who like her, had areas in their life they wanted to improve, in order to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and take back control of life.

Influenced by Kim’s personal journey and experience of a range of therapies, Dalton Wise provides coaching, therapy and training to support you in managing the challenges brought on by stress, anxiety and depression in your personal and professional life.  Kim does not believe in a ‘one size fits all approach’ and so developed the 8 Wise Programme, integrating coaching and therapy techniques with wellness strategy, to provide a bespoke, flexible, approach to setting and achieving personal and professional goals, with the aim to overcome your challenges and take back control of your life.
