About me

HI my name is Tina. I've worked with adults for 10 years and for the past 7 years I have also specialised in children and young people.I offer you a safe friendly confidential space. To work through your areas of need. Some of the areas I cover are depression, anxiety, self esteem, stress, family issues, eating disorders, sexuality, gender identity, sexual abuse, and team building workshops

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 help you to reflect on what's going on in your life, looking at the things that you maybe struggling with, and creating change if you choose to.

I use different theories to suit the clients needs, such as CBT to look at evidence of your thinking, Transactional analysis to educate and explore human behaviours of self, humanistic existential to explore the meaning, choice and responsibility you bring to your life, person centred to allow the client to explore their own story in away that is personal to them, Gestalt empty chair technique to explore dialogue with a person or part of self , inner child work

Further information

Being an existential humanistic counsellor it allows me the ability to look at all areas within your life, 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.
