About me

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.

How I can help




Grief and loss

"I wanted to write a letter to thank you for the help you gave me when I needed it most. The grief I was experiencing was really difficult and it felt like I would never be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel again. The counselling I had with you was so helpful in talking about my experience and it gave me an opportunity to find comfort again. I now feel that the heavy load I was carrying is a lot lighter. I am very grateful for your help."

Mark (Somerset)

"Tina, l have found your approachability, kindness, caring, non-judgemental manor and your gentle guidance invaluable. You have helped me through issues that l have held onto for a very long time, you have showed me how to look at them in different ways and in doing so have enabled me to release negativity which was holding me back in so many areas of my life. Thank you. "

Pauline M (London)

"Tina is a wonderful and thoughtful counsellor. She listens with great empathy and facilitates the process so that the answers surface easily. Her questions are probing without being intimidating and she allows the space and time for self-reflection and resolve while looking at all the possibilities and outcomes. Thank you for your help Tina"

Helen O’Connor (Australia)

"I have struggled with low self-esteem for as long as I can remember. It affected my life in so many ways, I had a job I didn’t like and I wanted to travel but didn’t have the confidence to do it. Having weekly sessions helped me to find my own answers to many questions and I found my life improved slowly but surely. I have since travelled to a couple of places I had wanted to go and it’s given me confidence to continue when I can."

Peter (Somerset)

"I would highly recommend Tina, I feel that I really benefited from the sessions we had together. I have had counselling in the past which did help me, but the therapy used by Tina has given me tools that I can use to help myself on a daily basis which I am so grateful for. Thank you so much for your help and guidance Tina"


Lighting the way to change

Are you having sleepless nights mulling over the past or even the future going nowhere fast? Do you feel that you have no control over your life and that nobody really understands you? Maybe you are affected by the behaviour and actions of others leading to feelings of despair and helplessness. If left unchecked this can often result in anxiety, poor health, depression, low self-esteem, loss of relationships, career etc.

By working together to gain insight into past events, thoughts and behaviour we can find solutions to the confusion and let go of what no longer serves you. Because we are all unique individuals with our own way of experiencing life, I use a creative approach in my sessions tailored to suit each client . This has helped my clients in the past and continues to do so now.

Why not contact me and see if we can work together.

I am currently offering counselling sessions online, over the telephone, and walk and talk counselling.


What is walk and talk counselling?

Walk and talk counselling takes counselling out of the therapy room and into the real world. This can take place almost anywhere we choose, and privacy can be maintained just by keeping a distance from other people.

A change of environment can often stimulate conversation that might not happen in the therapy room. It’s also an alternative from working online or via the phone. My clients have often shared that by being outside they feel more able to share more than being inside.

Payment Options

My fees are £45 per 1-hour session I ask that fees be paid 48 hours before the session and this can be done through bank transfer or PayPal.

I have some scope for a small discount where possible so please feel free to ask about availability
