I have also worked with presentations of anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, relationship issues, or exploring identity.
Hi there, my name is Lina. I am a psychodynamic counsellor, which means I usually look at how past experiences, conflicts, or trauma impact on your current distress. First and foremost, I put the client counsellor relationship at heart, offering a non-judgemental, safe space. In our sessions, we might explore family dynamics, relationships or self-esteem, but my approach is client led where you can bring whatever you need.

I have 30 years experience giving counselling, I’ve been a specialist NHS eating disorders therapist, addictions therapist, CAMHS therapist, Adult mental health clinician and counselling manager. I’m neurodivergant informed and developing a government counselling service for Special schools. There are many reasons why people come to counselling, we all struggle at times and may experience anxiety, low mood, loss or find life harder to cope with. It’s scary to ask for support, I understand this, I grew up in a family with complex needs and this experience is the compassionate basis for my work, bringing a deep understanding.

I love working with people, getting to know you and hearing your story. I believe that we are all unique. One of the things I love most about my work is the privilege of seeing someone begin to thrive and to enjoy their life again. I love helping to find some inner calm, clarity of thought and to be practicing self compassion as part of their everyday lives. I work in a bespoke way, tailor making my approach to each person. However, that said, everyone's needs compassion and so a compassion focused therapy approach runs through all of my work. I am most definitely a human first and a psychologist second.

I am an experienced counsellor working in Thornbury, South Gloucestershire. You might be seeking counselling for the first time or returning to therapy. We all experience disconcerting feelings and upsetting concerns at some point in our lives. The best way to begin therapy is to arrange an introductory session to find out why you need counselling and how we can work together. There is no charge for the first session. As the relationship of trust and respect develops between client and counsellor, you will become empowered to explore daunting emotions through a non-judgemental, client-centred approach.
