What is Counselling/Psychotherapy?
Counselling and Psychotherapy focuses on helping a person to talk about their thoughts, feelings, relationships, behaviours and other factors that could have an impact on their wellbeing. It is usually a talking therapy; however alternative approaches are used to support people to express themselves; such as writing, art and other conversation aids. Psychotherapy is a therapeutic approach used to work with many issues including:
•Loss and Grief
•Confidence and Self-Esteem
•Anxiety and Worry
•Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
•Alcohol and Substance Misuse
•Interpersonal skills and Relationship difficulties
Tina Greenhill has 12 years post qualifying experience, is fully accredited by the BACP and is a qualified Systemic Practitioner. She works with individuals, couples and families. Tina works integratively drawing from a variety of different therapeutic approaches. This helps to adjust the approach to suit the individual. During the initial consultation we will speak with you about the difficulties you might be facing and the kinds of therapy you might find helpful. Tina also offers both short term problem focused therapy and longer term therapy.
Tina draws from theories including; psychodynamic; systemic; interpersonal; Cognitive behavioural and Neuropsychology (Knowledge of brain injury including cognitive and physical affects). The relationship is the most important part of the therapeutic work but theory informs our understanding. Theory helps us to think about life experiences and the possible links to current difficulties/patterns. Theoretical knowledge also provides helpful strategies which can be utilised outside of therapy to empower people in difficult situations. I also provide a psycho-educational approach, as many people feel a huge sense of relief when they can make sense of the symptoms. For Tina, the most important part of therapy is to experience a supportive and confidential space where you can be heard and not judged. This provides the foundation for working together to gain understanding and insight into problems and begin to think about solutions.
Tina has 13 years experience of working in many settings including; the NHS, private psychiatric hospitals and various charities. Seven years have been spent specialising in working with clients with brain injury at Headway East London and for the NHS.
If you would like to talk about the possibility of counselling/psychotherapy we can book an initial consultation. This gives you the opportunity to meet with Tina to ask questions and to see if you feel comfortable when speaking with her. It can be anxiety provoking when beginning the therapeutic process but it can also be a very rewarding and helpful experience.
