Tina Berry -Codependency counsellor
Are you in a relationship that feels one-sided? Maybe you feel undervalued and taken advantage of? Do you obsess over your partner's behaviour, trying to fix, control, or change them to gain some degree of order in your life? Maybe it's a loved one who is addicted and the devastating long-term effects this can have. If left unchecked this can often result in anxiety, poor health, depression, low self-esteem, loss of friendships, and family members.
Hi, my name is Tina Berry and in my role as a counsellor I support clients who want to feel heard, valued, and understood in their relationships. They recognise that in order to attain this, it takes time to understand the reasons that brought them to counselling in the first instance.
Through my own personal and professional experience, I have gained insight into why people find it so difficult to disentangle themselves from dysfunctional relationships.
Finding a way to take some control back and feel empowered is the aim of the counselling I offer. I regard myself as caring, honest, and trustworthy, all the qualities I was shown when I needed support with my own troubling thoughts and behaviour.
Walking alongside my clients rather than leading the way enables them to feel in control of making their own decisions for the future. I regard it as a privilege to support my clients enabling them to move forward towards the life they want for themselves
Training, qualifications & experience
Post Grad Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy - 2009
Certificate in Cognitive-behavioural Therapy
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

I also offer walk and talk therapy as part of my service
Walk and talk therapy takes counselling out of the therapy room and into the outside world. This can take place almost anywhere we choose, and privacy can be maintained just by keeping a distance from other people.
A change of environment can often stimulate conversation that might not happen in the therapy room. It’s also an alternative to working online or via the phone. My clients have often shared that being outside has given them the freedom to express their thoughts and feelings in a safe and manageable way.
