Hi, I’m Tina and I’m pleased to ‘e-meet’ you.
If you are an adult experiencing emotional issues or stresses and wish to discuss these feelings with a psychotherapist you’re in the right place.
I’m passionate about psychotherapy and I would want to help you with your emotional and psychological wellbeing. I believe with the right support anything you want to be is possible. I am here to help you help yourself.
I want to help you lead a more fulfilling life.
You learn more about yourself in relation to another person. By building a trustworthy therapeutic relationship you will be able to acknowledge why you think the way you do, how you come to think that way and what you can do about that, if your choice is to do something about that. Being aware of yourself and your being allows you to unlock your thinking patterns.
You are the expert of your life. No one knows you better than you do. Your thoughts, feelings and experiencing are all unique to you. I would be able to work with you to identify what you need to do to keep yourself fulfilled, and to be the best you can be.
Being in a therapeutic relationship with you means we will work together to help you to where you want to be. I will illustrate this by using an analogy; think of psychotherapy as if you were looking into a mirror. You have all the answers within you, you just need the mirror to see it. Metaphorically speaking, I would be the ‘mirror’ in relation to you to assist and support you through your emotional journey.
In order to be a successful Psychotherapist to you, I have had to undergo counselling myself. Therefore I have had first-hand experience of being a client and I continually work on myself emotionally. This is with a view to providing you with the best possible therapeutic relationship in order for you to discover yourself and be the best you can be.
Here are 5 reasons why you should start counselling sessions:
- It is an emotional investment that is priceless; no amount of money compares to the emotional fulfilment you will get from it.
- Explore your thoughts and feelings with a professional individual, with someone who truly cares about you. Experience someone who can objectively listen to you empathetically and non-judgementally, from your own individual perspective.
- You will learn to trust yourself more as your personal development grows throughout our therapeutic encounter.
- Therapy helps you to feel stronger within your true inner self.
- I am passionate about my work. I will be committed to our therapeutic relationship from the start of your emotional journey.
Training, qualifications & experience
Masters of Science (MSc) in Contemporary Person Centred Psychotherapy and Application (Middlesex University).
I have extensive experience of working with clients who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence.
I have successfully helped numerous clients, both male and female, tackle a wide range of issues. My personal passion is to empower people of ethnic origin, with a view to helping them find themselves. This comes from my personal experiencing of having a different cultural and ethnic background. This experiencing has enabled me to have insight and understanding for dual ethnicities (Eastern and Western) which I welcome to work more on.

Your feelings are as unique as you are. Here are some previous client testimonials I have received that may help you to decide whether you would like to work with me.
“I have felt from the very beginning enormous support and understanding. It helped enormously to understand myself and the relationship I was in. I only have truly amazing things to say and I’m extremely thankful to Tina that I was given this chance, it has changed me as a person. It has changed my life to a better, happier and much more hopeful way that I could ever imagine or thought could be possible. THANK YOU.”
“I would like to say THANK YOU!! It’s been over twenty years that I have put up with physical and verbal abuse, never asking for help. My cup was beginning to overflow and I knew I needed help, and what a great help it has been. I would like to thank Tina for all of her support, understanding and empathy. She is very good! Today is my last session – I wouldn’t say I am over it, but I’m getting stronger day by day. From a thankful client.”
