There are times when many of us feel we could benefit from emotional support and although making that first step to see a counsellor can seem enormous, it is a really positive step as talking in confidence to a professional counsellor can help bring clarity and healing and give you much needed support during a painful or anxious time. Counselling can help you make sense of your emotions and responses and empower you to make changes in your life. It facilitates the freedom to talk openly and confidentially, in a place where you will be really listened to.

I use my expertise and experience to help people address their challenges at a level they can’t reach on their own. I see individuals who feel stuck for a whole variety of reasons. Maybe you are stuck in a past trauma; maybe you are struggling to move forward in your life; or maybe you are stuck in unhealthy behavioural patterns. Whatever brings you to therapy, my speciality is a deep exploration of all the factors that are holding you back. To do this, I develop long-term supportive relationships with my clients and work in an open-ended way, rather than just “fixing” the immediate problem.

Life at its best is not easy, and every day can bring worries never imagined before. All these influences can make you inclined to hang your head and give up, as almost everyone has experienced at some point or another in their lives. I am genuinely interested in helping individuals reach their highest potential. Sometimes the greatest regrets come from not doing what we know we should have been as we watch time go by. My focus as a therapist is to help you understand yourself to identify dysfunctional areas and to help bring about self-awareness of your mind to foster positivity which will help you attain self-fulfillment.

Hello Change Seekers, I'm Tina & I've been working with people therapeutically since 1995; both as a psychotherapist and as a clinical supervisior. Following my early qualifications, I continued on with academic studies because I came to realise that the nature of the therapeutic relationship was crucial. Within that Real and Authentic relationship we can hold space for so many difficulties and reach new insights and depths of understanding about ourselves and how to integrate that knowledge to live our best lives. Ideally you will be open to explore, integrate, share, be vulnerable, want to develop and grow & reclaim yourself fully

Psychotherapy is a journey of self discovery which can help to answer the ever-burning questions: why we do the things we do? why we think the thoughts we think? It offers a fresh perspective at ourselves and an opportunity to make more informed decisions. It asks of us: is what I am doing healthy for me? If not, what can I do to change it? And finally, how to make that change last? I think of it as privilege to be able to assist my clients on their journeys and help them in overcoming the issues which have been preventing them from living happy, fulfilling and peaceful lives.

The aim is to help you gain insight, heighten self awareness and develop a less self critical view of yourself. As well as problem solving, the approach is educational, preventative and growth-promoting.

I am a professionally qualified Therapist and Youth Worker. I fuse these two career paths together to create a youth centred approach in my practice. I wholeheartedly believe therapy is not something ‘done’ to people. Instead, the client is an active participant alongside myself as the therapist. Together we can build a safe relationship based on trust with a non-judgemental approach. This helps achieve the ultimate goal of therapy - change.

Firstly, well done for finding the courage to reach out for help and taking that first step which is crucial for transforming your life. Although challenges are an unavoidable part of our existence, we are often overwhelmed by them and psychologically unequipped to deal with what life throws at us. However, in that hardship there is always an opportunity for growth and healing, which I have experienced myself. As a result, I developed a great passion for helping others to find their way forward, and for the last 13 years have provided clients with various forms of support of which counselling has proved to be the most rewarding.

About me I am an experienced Therapeutic Counsellor and Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). Life can sometimes be difficult. Everyone experiences times in their lives when they need a little extra support. I understand how daunting it can be to even think about talking to a stranger, so I can offer an empathic, confidential space if you have an issue you are finding hard to deal with on your own. I recommend an introductory session in which we can discuss whatever is troubling you and see if you would feel comfortable talking to me. If so, we can work together to find a way to deal with it. I
