I have extensive experience working with young people and adults with a history of relationship issues, anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement, abuse, depression, issues concerning sexuality, post traumatic stress, and body image.
Many people are currently dealing with psychosocial covid-related stress, social isolation and loneliness, and these are areas that I work with.
I also work with those who are experiencing, or wish to make, major life-changes and those living with general feelings of sadness, loss and dissatisfaction with life.
All appointments are held online via Skype.
I am an integrative arts psychotherapist and supervisor, grounded in the understanding of earliest attachment relationships and how these are connected to people's present difficulties. I believe passionately in the importance of the relationship between the therapist and the client and finding the most appropriate way of working with them as individuals.
As well as contacting me online, you can call 0776 8241655.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

A creative approach ensures that you can apply the results of this therapy in both your personal and professional life. The creative process and the therapeutic relationship offer both verbal and non-verbal means of self-expression to promote clarity, insight awareness and change.
This could address any issues you are facing at this particular stage of your life, relationship issues, low motivation, poor self-esteem and issues to do with weight, or any other very sensitive internal processes. Tina offers in-depth understanding of complex relational patterns that can enhance or diminish our relationship with self and others.
