Trina Jardine PG Dip. Counselling & Psychotherapy, Registered MBACP.
Hello and welcome.
It may be you're here because life feels unsettled at the moment. You may have a particular issue that you would like some support with, you may be struggling to manage a time of change or transition, or to find a sense of who you are where you belong.
Whatever the reason, struggling on alone can be a painful and disheartening process. It is important to find the right support, to help you at this time.
I offer individual counselling and psychotherapy, working with adults and children and young people, aged 11 years and above.
My relationship with my clients is of central importance to me in my work. It is important to me to build trust, offering you a safe confidential place to explore your needs and experiences.
I work with an integrative model, which means that I am able to tailor my approach to your needs and preferences. I have a person-centred base, working alongside you in your process and experiences. I integrate aspects of other theoretical models, including aspects of Transactional Analysis, CBT, mindfulness, and use of creative media, allowing the flexibility to be creative in working intuitively to meet the unique needs of each client.
I work with a range of issues such as anxiety, low mood and depression, bereavement and loss, work-related stress, assertiveness, exploring feelings, processing change, family dynamics, and relationship issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist.
I have experience of working with a range of clients, in various settings, and am comfortable in working with a brief counselling approach, working with specific therapeutic aims over a set timeframe, or an open-ended approach. I have experience of working with adults, children and young people.
I have experience of working with clients in my private practice, as well as in my work as a school’s sessional counsellor, offering a counselling service to students and to staff members.
I previously worked with Cruse Bereavement Care, supporting adults, and children and young people through the bereavement process.
Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked for a number of years as a secondary school teacher. This provided me with valuable experience of working within an educational establishment, offering me insight into the student experience, and also the expectations, pressures and issues faced by staff.
My ability to work on my own initiative also allows me to adopt an intuitive approach when working with clients. This impacts upon my client work, allowing me to be more congruent and creative in responding to the individual needs of the client.

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.
