About me

My name is Tina Turpin and I’m a counsellor and psychotherapist and have worked with hundreds of clients.

I am a BACP-certified counsellor, who takes an empathetic, integrative approach to helping my clients reach their potential as people.

Every one of us is different, and as such I tailor my approach to each individual client’s needs and focus closely on the client-therapist relationship. For me, respect, trust and empowerment are fundamental to this relationship.

My story

My extensive experience as a Hospital and District Nurse and Midwife motivated me to work more with people. The wisdom gained has inspired and complemented my work as a counsellor.

My previous experience includes voluntary work at the Fountain Centre, a charity providing support to cancer sufferers as well as their families and carers.

I am now established as a counsellor and psychotherapist helping clients both online and in-person at my dedicated counselling practice.

Who I work with

Individuals

Individual counseling can help you deal with many personal issues in life such as anger, depression, anxiety, marriage and relationship challenges.

Couples

Couple’s counselling can help you gain new perspectives about each other, and this often leads to a more insightful relationship where you are able to talk to each other more openly.

Professionals

Helping with more professional and work based issues, such as interpersonal relationship, office politics, performance anxiety and team issues.

Questions

Frequently asked questions

Yes, counselling is confidential.  Counselling is built on trust in a secure professional relationship.  I work within the BACP Ethical Framework where confidentiality is essential. There may be exceptional circumstances where I will need to break confidentiality but I will not do this without first talking to you.

I see clients on their own and I also see couples. Couple therapy could be two partners, two spouses, two family members or maybe two friends.

Each session lasts 50 minutes.

It's £60 per session for individuals or professionals and £75 for couples.

This is something that we can decide between us. Some people find short-term counselling (6 – 12) sessions helpful, whereas some wish to work in a more open-ended or long term way.

Usually it will take a number of counselling sessions before therapy starts to make a difference, although on some occasions, a single session may be enough.  We can decide together how many sessions will be needed.

My approach

Understanding

I approach each of my clients as individuals, without presumption or prejudice, and tailor my approach and sessions to each of their individual needs

Non-judgmental

I am an empathetic person by nature, and I strive to provide you a safe, trusting and private space in which to grow and learn about yourself

Ethical conduct

My approach falls within the BACP Ethical Framework, meaning our sessions are secure, discreet and confidential

Mindfulness
by Tina Turpin

In today’s busy society, we all tend to multi-task and often worry about many things simultaneously. Mindfulness can help reduce the growing stress and tension of our day.

So, what is mindfulness?  Well, it is a kind of meditation, an in-the-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, experiences and environment focussing on the present moment – what is going on around you and inside you; what you're sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. 

Men searching for counselling
by Tina Turpin

Asking for mental health help should be simple but for many men, it just isn’t. The acceptance that counselling, therapy or talking therapy really does work is often lost by the stigma that this is something men just don’t do.

Women in general share problems in their lives with their partner, family and close friends and they also access mental health services more frequently than men. This healthy way of reaching out and accepting support means they have less worries, anxiety and depression.
