Kim Young – Individual Award Nominee – 2009

Since Kim’s statement and realisation she is a survivor of an horrific violent relationship, her desire and motivation has been solely in the development/implementation of a strategy to aid and advise fellow victims on their own personal long, stressful and often traumatic journeys toward survival, this is Kim’s goal to have this strategy implemented throughout all aspects of our society from the workplace to education. Since surviving the abusive relationship Kim has excelled both at work and in her private life, developing the skills through continuing education toward her goal of professional counsellor, in order to more effectively support fellow victims. Kim has now been published; in her book Sour Face she recounts vivid details of life with an abuser. The book was published by Mental Health charity Chipmunka.
