Life Counselling

Tina Clark

(Formerly Livingstone)

Life has a habit of throwing curved balls which hit us hard. Impacts can be instant, accumulate over time or do deep damage that rises to the surface later. However life impacts counselling may be helpful in supporting you.

Whatever your issues working with me can strengthen you, and unlock your potential. I help people unravel their struggles, de-construct what blocks them, and move forward to a more comfortable place of being.

Your counselling is about You. This may involve working on personal development, specific issues, decision making, developing insight and knowledge, working through your feelings, finding the strength to cope with crisis or seeking ways to improve your relationships with others.

There are many things in life that we cannot change - you are not one of them.

I cannot create happy ever afters but I will work hard to help you increase your self-worth and resilience.

Client Reviews

Tina supported me through several major life shifts including the end of a long-term relationship and a horrific bereavement. She has always treated me with the upmost respect, dignity and compassion, even when all I've done is just cried at her for hours. She is genuinely warm and works sensitively with humour; even in the bleakest of times she has helped me see light, or at least to recognise that there will be light again at some point.

“My first contact with Tina was with the simple words Help me... the hardest words I have ever written, but marked the moment my life changed for the better. Tina gave all my internalised fears a voice for the first time in my life... and then calmly helped me explore and rebuild myself.

One of the most important lessons she taught me was to forgive myself. When you have been your own biggest critic for so long, this can be an almost impossible task. It isn't, it just takes time and the calming words of a good counsellor. Together we turned my life around.”

I came along to these sessions at a very traumatic time in my life. I felt at the lowest I feel I could ever reach. I was reluctant to pursue counselling and it took a lot for me to be able to open up. However Tina managed to help me find the strong person within me that I seemed to have lost. I would like to say a very big thankyou for helping me find myself again.

I wasn't able to avoid going up to London yesterday for a hospital appointment (eyes). I hadn't been able to go on a train for the past nine or ten years as I used to get major panic attacks. No anxiety at all. Quite a civilised way to travel really! My point is without the stuff you helped me with, I couldn't even have attempted this and would certainly have just made an excuse and missed the appointment. So thanks, Tina. I seem to gain a greater insight into myself with every passing day. I know that's because of the seeds of ideas you quietly planted. You're really good at what you do.

Counselling with Tina made me able to put things in perspective. I was made to feel that everything I was feeling was not stupid or wrong, but perfectly acceptable considering my experiences, and I was then able to move forward. I found talking to someone who did not know any of the people involved in my problems gave me more confidence to actually say how I felt and not pretend otherwise. It made me feel that I was perfectly normal, and not someone who was going mad, and that I would be able to cope with my future.
