About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Tess and I am an accredited member of the BACP. I have over 35 years experience working in the NHS and for the last 15 years I have been based in a busy psychology department of a large Mental Health Trust, where I provide counselling and psychotherapy to help and support individuals with a wide variety of issues.
I have recently developed Meraki counselling service, this is a bespoke space, created to provide a safe, reflective place for people to explore their lives and difficulties and begin the journey towards making change. People come to therapy for many different reasons; managing recent life events, fluctuating emotional states or recognising the impact of past traumas on current experiences and relationships. I use both counselling and creativity to help people explore those issues and to encourage a sense of inner resilience and strength, the foundations for strong, sustainable change.
I began my counselling training at Warwick University and qualified as a person centred counsellor in 2008. Since then I have attained further diplomas, with the specific aim of improving and broadening my practice. Through my role in Psychological Services I have worked with and supported people experiencing acute anxiety, depression, stress, anger issues, trauma and self-harm. I have also gained experience of supporting people who have experienced bereavement, sexual trauma, domestic abuse and loss through a number of voluntary roles that I have worked in over the years.
