My name is Kim Byng, I am a fully qualified counsellor working in Derby. I have a background in working with clients affected by domestic violence (male and female) and also with victims of crime. I work with adult clients around relationship and attachment issues, domestic abuse , sexual abuse , anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, loss, trauma, self harm, identifying patterns of relating to others, new relationships and personal growth. I generally use Transactional Analysis when working with clients, this involves inviting the client to examine their own processes and ways of relating to others so they can make changes in their lives.

Hello, I'm Zareeda and I work with people on issues ranging from rape and sexual abuse to stress, bereavement, anxiety and depression. If you are struggling to find meaning in life you may be feeling disconnected from yourself and/or those around you. This loss of contact with yourself, your needs, values and beliefs may decrease your trust in your ability to form and build meaningful relationships and achieve personal goals.

I work in a trauma-informed manner and have specific experience and training in sexual abuse /trauma.
Has a recent or past negative experience left you feeling lost or stuck? Maybe you’ve tried to just get on with life but inside you still feel broken, replaying events in your mind and asking yourself why or how this happened. Perhaps you know what happened to you was traumatic or maybe you’ve told yourself it “wasn’t that bad”. Some days you seem to feel all the emotions all at once, and other days you feel nothing at all. Other people simply don’t understand, leaving you feeling alone and like you don’t matter. Most things in your life, your relationships, work or education might be affected and you long to break free from it all.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective, evidence based treatment for anxiety disorders, depression and trauma. Life experiences can impact negatively on current wellbeing and self-esteem. We can use CBT and/or EMDR to explore these experiences and how they have impacted on your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is particularly effective for childhood trauma including child sexual abuse . I have a particular interest in working with trauma and self esteem. I am a collaborative therapist and I will work with you towards the goals you identify as important to you.

As an integrative therapist, I am relational in my approach, this style places great emphasis on the relationship between the client and the therapist. I believe the most important part of any therapy is to build a trusting relationship, where you can feel safe and secure so you feel able to share your story and experiences in a confidential, non-judgmental space where you can explore positive and challenging aspects of your life and any change you wish to explore or make. I have personal experience in sexual, physical, emotional and mental abuse ; divorce; living with a narcissist; step-parenting; addiction and PTSD.

EMDR can be useful for people who have witnessed or experienced an event like a RTA, a violent crime, sexual or emotional abuse , bullying, negative events in childhood, bereavement and are struggling to process the event.
Counselling changes not just the lives of individuals, but of families, work colleagues and friendships. I will give you the opportunity to promote a greater self-awareness, self-esteem, self-assertiveness and confidence. I will support and help you understand and give you a better perspective on your problems and your issues that can actually help you to deal with them differently and work on them in a different way. I will provide you with a safe, secure and non-judgemental environment where you can actually feel vulnerable and voice your thoughts and feelings to gain a better and different understanding of them.

Have you tried and tried to repair what you feel is broken but still feel stuck and don’t know how to move forward? Maybe you feel that everyone else seems to be coping so there must be something wrong with you? Are you feeling isolated, unable to share your feelings with those closest to you? Sometimes we struggle with sadness, anxiety or self criticism, we can feel like life no longer holds any joy or charm for us. We feel frustrated with ourselves for not being ok - for not just “getting on with it”. We are often so understanding of other people's fallibility but have such high expectations of ourselves that we fall short.

I love my job, but I am aware that taking the first steps can be very scary and how difficult it can be to talk about painful emotional issues affecting your life to a stranger. I am here for you though, Im here to offer you this support, and to respond to you sensitively, honestly and without judgement. I must admit my favourite part of being a counsellor is watching you, my clients, grow and blossom into the amazing beings you are supposed to be, letting go of the things that hold you back, reaching your full potential and creating your best possible life! It is a huge honour and privilege to be part of that process!

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
