Tina Braithwaite, MA, MBACP (Registered)
Hello and Welcome,
I have been a counsellor and psychotherapist for 10 years, working in occupational health, higher education and community practice. I counsel adults of all ages on a one-to-one basis, using a holistic, integrative counselling approach.
Sometimes it can be difficult to discuss deeper, personal struggles with colleagues, family or friends, or to do so to the extent that we need. I offer a calm, safe, non-judgemental space where you can talk through any issues or difficulties you are experiencing.
You may be considering counselling for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are experiencing anxiety or stress, loss or bereavement, relationship difficulties, low mood, or low self-esteem. You may be struggling with shyness or social anxiety, facing a challenging issue at work, or finding it difficult to adjust to a new environment or phase of life.
It may be that you feel OK emotionally but would like to develop a better understanding of your thought patterns, emotions and behaviours. Or perhaps you would like some help achieving your goals, or improving your work-life balance and time management.
As someone who is empathic, impartial and respectful of you as a unique individual, my aim is to work collaboratively with you to help you gain insight about yourself and your situation, discover new perspectives, and feel better equipped to make positive changes to your life.
