Are you struggling with Relationship problems? Counselling can help you to increase your awareness and insight, which is often a significant contributor towards change. I can help you to gain a deeper understanding of you (and your partners) thoughts feelings and behaviour, whilst identifying strategies to enable you (and your partner) to make the changes you desire. I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I can utilise a mix of theories and interventions to best suit your individual needs. My aim is to identify something that is meaningful to you, that makes sense, and that you connect with.

In working with clients affected by domestic abuse I have a specialised understanding of relationship dynamics, this helps me work with clients who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships whether a partner or family member, when a client brings issues around developing a new relationship or when they are wishing to reconnect with family members.
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.

I am an experienced Counsellor, specialising in Couples counselling and relationship issues.
Are you living with feelings of self- doubt, blame, anger or shame? Do you need help to cope with depression or anxiety? Maybe you have suffered loss, and doubt your ability to sustain meaningful relationships with family and friends. Perhaps you are in a relationship that is stuck in the rut, or mired in hopelessness, negativity, and mistrust. It may be that your relationship has changed from a loving one to one of repeated misunderstandings, heated arguments or frosty silence. Stressful life events can bring about such difficulties, or sometimes disappointments simply accumulate over time.

Unable to find the strength to cope with change and difficult decisions. Counselling can be a life changing experience; our present struggles and feelings can be a turning point towards a new direction.

We might look at relationship patterns through out your life and help you gain awareness and understanding of how these play a part in your mental wellbeing.
Are you struggling with big emotions? Fear, pain, or maybe you feel empty, numb and unable to get going? Do you feel trapped by your relationships, circumstances or suffer with a lack of confidence to make a change? You may be grieving the loss of an important person in your life. Throughout our lives we have many ups and downs, losses and big changes. Sometimes we can feel alone in our problems. You might feel unable to share some of the thoughts and feelings that you’re having with others due to feeling that you may be criticised, ridiculed or misunderstood. Depression can make us feel disconnected from others and alone in life.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
