Kim Patrick lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. She has a Certificate 3 in Education Support, Diploma in Christian Ministry, Diploma in Counselling and 20 years of parenting experience under her belt.
Over the past twenty years while raising four children of her own, Kim has always found opportunity to work closely with kids and has taken on many varied roles: dancing teacher, gymnastics instructor, fitness instructor for the disabled, swimming coach, Sunday school teacher, kids’ club leader. She has always gravitated towards children in a unique and special way.
Kim has enjoyed working with many “at risk” children and has a special passion for teenagers. As a young adult she would help teenagers who were running away from home by hiding them in the back shed, feeding them until she could talk them into returning home to their parents (yes, it’s absolutely true). She has had numerous letters of appreciation from very grateful parents and carers of children whom she has helped on their journey of life.
Kim is an accomplished author and seminar speaker. Having an empathy for single parent families, she has been there, parenting alone for several years. She has the “know how” for helping parents to navigate the maze of divorce. Her kids are living proof that children are capable of coming out the other side emotionally whole.
Here is a picture of Kim with her four kids. Then . . . and now. They do grow up!
