Tina Dunne Psychotherapist and counsellor MBACP reg.
Making those first steps in searching for a therapist can raise anxiety levels which is difficult when you are already suffering. My aim is to create a safe space in that all important first session. I believe and have witnessed that an effective therapeutic relationship can be a space where long term healing can take place for clients.
I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, affects of childhood trauma, emotional difficulties, personality issues, interpersonal problems or simply wanting to understand life long impulses and responses to people and situations that are feeling problematic.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychotherapist with a masters level qualification in Psychotherapy and Counselling (Qualification - PGDip - psych). I am a humanistic and integrative psychotherapist integrating theories and practice from different schools of thought. I am trained to work long-term (psychotherapy), exploring unconscious problematic patterns of thought and responses which may be linked to childhood experiences or short-term (counselling), focussing on a particular problem.
My training included approaches such as Person centred, Gestalt, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic and Biodynamic (body) psychotherapy. I have had further training since in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.
I am also a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy adhering to their ethical and practical guidelines. I have had a private practice for 7 years. I continue to undergo continued professional development and attend regular supervision.
