Welcome

My name is Tina Dunne and I am a qualified psychotherapist with a masters level qualification in Psychotherapy and Counselling working in Bristol city. I am registered with the UKAHPP (United Kingdom Association of Humanistic Psychology Practitioners).

I am trained to work long-term (psychotherapy), exploring unconscious problematic patterns of thought and responses which may be linked to childhood experiences or short-term (counselling), focussing on a particular problem.

Making those first steps to contact a therapist can be anxiety raising in itself. Questions such as 'do I have a big enough problem to warrant contacting a therapist' emerge. Just to say I have not yet had a client who was disappointed that they engaged in therapy whether it was long or short-term engagement.

 

I have experienced Psychotherapy and counselling to be helpful for:

  • Complex trauma (long term effects of childhood developmental trauma) 

  • Anxiety

  • Depression 

  • Bereavement

  • Self development

  • feelings of isolation

  • loss of direction

  • search for meaning in your life

But every one is unique and I will work with whatever you bring into the session, in my experience every client brings something new to explore which I welcome. 

Notice

Due to Covid 19 I am currently working remotely using Zoom, WhatsApp or phone. I hope this will be able to change in the next few months. It has worked surprisingly well but looking forward to having some face to face sessions this year!

My private practice is in Clifton, Bristol



The practice is situated:

  • In a building where only therapists work, respectful of the need for a therapeutic environment

  • In a spacious comfortable room 

  • Two minute walk from Clifton Down shopping centre where you can park free for two hours if you spend £20 in Sainsbury's.

  • Very close to bus stops and right next to the Clifton Down train station

  • Close to several coffee shops making it a nice place to wait if you get there too early
