About me

HI my name is Tina. I started my counselling experience in drugs and alcohol, and Mind. I work with adults, and for the past 6 years I have also specialised in children and young people.I offer you a safe friendly confidential space. areas worked with, depression, anxiety, relationships, stress, family issues. Etc

HOW I WORK

The most important aspect for myself in counselling is to be real, honest and non judgemental. This allows a warm, therapeutic relationship to thrive; in turn giving yourself a safe place to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I will aid you to explore what the issues or concerns are, and also look at what you want to achieve within counselling.

My role within counselling is to show you that you are capable of being in control of any situation; it's about finding the right tools and mind set, that help you to cope and manage within your life, and empowering you to achieve a happier future.

Further information

Being an existential humanistic counsellor it allows me the ability to look at all areas within our lives, which are :- physical, psychological, spiritual, and social aspects of our lives, it enables me to work holistically as a practitioner. The principles of humanistic existential counselling is :- to take responsibility for the choices and directions we have made within our lives; finding a way to help the individual live within the moment, giving you a stronger sense of freedom. Looking at what makes life meaningful for you, what are the limitations/ beliefs that you may have placed upon yourself, and how you can live within those limitations/ beliefs and still feel a sense of peace, if the limitations/ beliefs cannot be removed.
