Tina Abbott Counselling


Anon, Autumn workshops

“Just to say thank you very much again for a fantastic experience.  It felt like there was space for everyone no matter our style of communicating, and you spread a mindful and a compassionate approach through the group that I have no doubt was very healing and reassuring for everyone – but definitely for me.”

Anon, Autumn workshops

“I have a deeper understanding of myself around trust connected with caregiving/careseeking, and a clearer perspective around interest sharing, and how it can be a brilliant indicator of a safe and balanced relationship.”

Anon, Autumn workshops

“It made so much sense of a situation I was experiencing in my life right at the time of the course, and was incredibly helpful.”

Anon, Autumn workshops

“The group was really positive, the group felt very well held and as a result it was a safe space to express myself and share openly in the presence of the other participants.”

Anon, Autumn workshops

“I would highly recommend Tina’s workshops for any and everyone – she creates a safe, relaxed and warm environment that allows for participants to approach the work at our own pace and in our own style.  There was never any pressure to share more than we felt comfortable with, and the learning was incredibly useful.”

Anon, Autumn workshops

“The experiential group was very ably ran by Tina. She gave us a brief outline of what topic we would be thinking about but then it was down to us to explore what it meant to us. She was great at listening and then helped us, through skilful questioning, to think further about our feelings […]

Anon, Autumn workshops

“It felt challenging in a positive way. I found the 7 aspects of attachment that we explored a very powerful tool for making sense of my life.”

Sari Robinson from Cardiff/California

“Tina is perhaps the most outstanding supervisor I have come across so far. She somehow manages to create a safe space where I feel I can be completely honest and open, whilst maintaining the ability to challenge me to think more deeply about my clients and myself. Tina and I have different therapeutic orientations, and […]

Gwen from Cardiff

“Tina was my supervisor for 3 years in this time she really helped me to develop my practice and in particular sensitivity and compassion for my clients comes to mind, she is robust, holding and gentle. In particular she has a very strong grounding in psychodynamic theory which she integrates with other approaches. Her knowledge […]

“I found that my experience of supervision with Tina was insightful and illuminating. I was gently challenged in a way that allowed me gain perspective on my opinion of self and my work. I felt that I grew in confidence and began to learn to trust in my own ability but also to develop my […]

Angela Williams, Counsellor

“Tina was my supervisor for three years. During that time I was felt listened too and supported. I was positively challenged whilst also benefitting from Tina’s vast knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend Tina as a supervisor and if locality was not an issue for me Tina would still be my supervisor.”

Charlotte from Cardiff

“Tina was my supervisor during my training to become a counsellor, an exciting, but at the same time, vulnerable time. I felt very held and supported throughout. One of the most valuable things she helped me to develop was the crucial balance of warmth, empathy and self-discipline; how to fully enter in and then step back […]

Anon from Cardiff

“Tina is extremely supportive, caring, professional and discreet. She quickly identified the main cause of my anxiety, and really helped me to address it. I am glad to recommend Tina as a counsellor and therapist.”

Kath from Worcester

“My therapy with Tina was quite life changing. We worked together for a number of years and for several of those we met twice every week. Meeting more frequently made it much more possible for me to do the work when I was in such a vulnerable place. Here are some of the things I […]

M from Cardiff

“I received counselling from Tina over 12 months and she helped me through a time of acute distress. I would enter her room, take a deep breath and let it all out. Then I would put on my mask and enter the world again. Tina taught me to take each day at a time, to […]

Will from Worcestershire

“Working with Tina has been a beautiful and gentle revelation. Her approach is kind, considered and hugely helpful. Her immense experience as a therapist shines through in every conversation. The range of ways she has helped me are hard to list, they are so many and varied. That said I feel abundantly free, optimistic and […]

A from Monmouthshire

“I undertook therapy with Tina for two years, being counselled for moderate anxiety and clinical depression. Tina is sensitive , non-judgemental, kind, caring and when necessary warmly assertive. I felt she was someone who listened to, acknowledged and understood my issues, who cared about me and who had my best interests at heart; genuinely wanting […]

“The structure was particularly strong-it really felt like you were led through the 8 weeks-flowing well and linking. I really think the content/delivery was spot on! The support booklet is also brilliant!”
