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 in order 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. Are you a parent, sibling, or friend that are struggling to find the right way to support their loved one. If left unchecked this can often result in anxiety, poor health, depression, low self-esteem, loss of friendships, and family members.
Through personal and professional experience I have gained insight into why people find it so difficult to disentangle themselves from dysfunctional relationships. I support clients that want to change patterns of behaviour that are having a detrimental effect on their lives. I also offer support to clients in the area of addictions, grief, and loss, anxiety, depression, and phobias.
Finding a way to taking some control back and feeling empowered is the aim of the counselling that 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 feel heard and valued
Training, qualifications & experience
Post Grad Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy - 2009

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

I also offer walk and talk therapy as part of my service
Walk and talk counselling takes counselling out of the therapy room and into the real 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 from working online or via the phone. My clients have often shared that by being outside they feel more able to share more than being inside.
