About me

Hello, I'm Tina, I am a qualified and experienced therapist who can help you to manage a range of emotional difficulties. I have been seeing clients in private practice since 2014, and I work with individuals in need of a little support.

​Life can have many challenges which require us to 'show up', but what if these challenges get the better of us? Challenges such as relationship breakdowns, bereavement, job loss, anxiety and depression.

Sometimes it may be difficult to even know why we are not feeling OK.

A lot of the time, we just ignore the feelings and hope they go away but what if there was an alternative? What if 'showing up' meant understanding our difficulties and focusing on building our resilience?

​​​My aim is to provide you with the space to increase your emotional intelligence and build on your strength and resilience, and ​Counselling and Psychotherapy is a really useful way of achieving just that.

I specialise in working with a range of issues, some of which include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety / generalised anxiety disorder / panic
  • Trauma
  • Relationship issues
  • Affairs and betrayals
  • Family issues
  • Stress
  • Abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Self Esteem
  • Addictions
  • Anger
  • Bereavement / loss
  • Identity issues

We have over 60,000 thoughts a day and 90% of them are re-occuring.

If these thoughts are a result of low mood, anxiety and poor self-worth, imagine what stories and lies you are telling yourself on a daily basis. I really believe despite a lot of life's challenges, we can develop the ability to explore, understand and change the way we respond to some of these challenges. I have experienced this on a personal level and encourage it in my work with others.

If you would like a free telephone consultation, you are more than welcome to call or message me to arrange this. This consultation will be an opportunity for me to find out more about your support needs, and to give you an opportunity to ask me any questions about the process. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
