Hi and welcome to Lighting the way to Change, my name is Tina Berry and I am based in the seaside town of Burnham on Sea in Somerset. For the past twenty-five years I have spent time gaining experience in various settings which include education, social services, a local voluntary organisation and working in a Rehabilitation Centre for Drug and Alcohol Misuse. All of which has given me valuable learning in my private practice.
Through my own personal and professional experience, I have gained insight into reasons why people think and act in the way they do. Through careful support and given the right conditions my clients have often been able to address these issues that keep them from living the lives they want.
I am an integrative counsellor which means I use different techniques and theories to suit my client’s individual needs. The client knows what they want in order to go forward and I regard it as privilege to support them on their journey along with the skills that I have gained.
My aim is to provide a safe and secure environment within to support my clients. I regard myself as a warm, empathic and caring counsellor and my aim is to help my clients to address whatever is standing in their way of a productive way of life. Sometimes we need a helping hand to get back on track and I believe accessing therapy can be the way forward.
