What does KIT mean in KIT Psychology?

KIT is an acronym for Kintsukuroi Integrative Therapies, the company behind KIT Psychology. Kintsukuroi is a Japanese word steeped in tradition and rich in meaning.

“Kintsukuroi” means “to repair with gold” in Japanese, and is the art of repairing broken pottery with gold and understanding that the piece is the more beautiful for having been broken

From broken to beautiful

The meaning behind the word Kintsukuroi beautifully represents our philosophy for healing.
