About me

My name is Kim Byng, I am fully qualified counsellor and I work in private practice offering psychotherapy and counselling. The main approach in my work is Transactional Analysis although sometimes I draw on other therapeutic techniques such as mindfulness, CBT and solution focused therapy to work with clients. My background has been in working with clients affected by domestic abuse and crime, I have six years experience of working within charitable domestic abuse support agencies and four years experience of working with victims of crime. Though this work, I have developed a special interest in relationship dynamics and in working with clients who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships. This can be with a partner, family member or friend, around developing new relationships or wishing to reconnect with family members.

I work with clients experiencing a variety of issues including:

 

Attachment
Anxiety

Childhood trauma
Depression

Difficulties coping in everyday life

Domestic abuse 

Employment issues, bullying and redundancy

Grief and loss

Impact of crime 

Personal change and development

Relationship and family problems

Self-confidence

Self-esteem 

Suicidal thoughts

The above list is by no means exhaustive as clients come with many different issues so if you are experiencing difficulties with something I have not listed above please feel free to contact me so we can discuss whether we might work together.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their ethical framework, I am fully insured for all work undertaken.
