About me

Hi, I'm Tina and Welcome.

It’s not just our physical health that is being affected by the corona virus pandemic – uncertainty, frustration, anxiety and stress, along with the huge changes in the way we now live our lives, are all having an impact on our mental health too.

You’re not alone if these changes are making you feel worried and unsure. Our situation is challenging and unpredictable, and these feelings are quite normal.

Often talking to a neutral non-judgemental person, such as me, can really help.  Together we can work on what troubles you - maybe you have been feeling low for too long and want to change; perhaps you need some help with your anger or to stop feeling so anxious.  Maybe you are grieving and need some help. I focus very much on the relationship between client and therapist - a working relationship that is built on respect, trust and empowerment.

As a qualified, sensitive and committed counsellor I can offer you a safe, confidential and comfortable space where you can talk freely and openly about your concerns without the fear of being judged.

What is my approach?

My approach is to work with you, get to know you and understand how you want to change and move forward. I use an integrative approach which includes Psycho-dynamic work, Person Centred Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Relational work. This allows flexibility and enables me to find the most suitable therapy for your individual needs - be this short or long term. I work in a non-judgemental and empathic way.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Accessibility

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.

Wheelchair user access

There is parking on the drive for your car, if needed, and a few steps away is the Counselling Room, accessible by wheelchair if required.

Availability

With the recent social distancing restrictions, face to face counselling is not possible so I offer Skype, WhatsApp or phone sessions at times to suit us both.
