About me

My name is Tina Berry and I live in the seaside town of Burnham on Sea in Somerset. I have over 25+ years of experience supporting students in educational settings, in the social care sector, a local voluntary organisation and working in a Rehabilitation Centre for Drug and Alcohol Misuse.

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. Having said this, the client knows what they want in order to go forward and I regard it as privilege to support them on the 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.

Testimonials

"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

Do you feel like you are all at sea with no direction? 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. Life can be turbulent, going around in circles, throwing us into confusion.

I can help you to see a way out of that confusion by offering a safe and confidential environment for you to talk. A bit like a lighthouse, shining its light to calmer waters. I regard myself as caring, honest and trustworthy, all the qualities I was shown when I needed support with my own troubling thoughts.

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 seeing life, I use a creative approach in my sessions. 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 offer counselling sessions online, face to face, over the telephone, and walk and talk counselling. *Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic I can only offer consultations online, over the phone and walk and talk.

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

I ask that fees be paid via Paypal or bank transfer 48 hrs before the session. Quite often therapy can take time and so I offer packages of sessions at a discount.

I charge £40 per session however, I have some scope to offer reduced fees where possible.
