On 28th December 2015 Kim Hastings, one of our longest standing and valued members, died at the much-too-young age of 62 having suffered a series of strokes. She leaves two wonderfully supportive and loving daughters – Shelley and Abbie – and two grandchildren, Milly and Herbie, to whom she was completely devoted.

Kim worked as a therapist since 1983 when she completed her training with the Institute of the Development of Human Potential, then the only therapy training in this area. She went on to complete the art therapy training in St Albans and the BCPC training. Kim was also a founding member in 2002 of the BCPC Asylum Project, now the Trauma Foundation South West, and was still a member at the time of her death. No other founding member was/is still working with this charity except myself. Working with asylum seekers and refugees became her passion and was the only aspect of her work that she was still undertaking when she was taken ill having retired from working with other clients.                              Contd/…..
