Tina Tomkova BSc
Humanistic Integrative Counsellor/psychotherapist
Hi, I am an experienced Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, I believe that we all have within us the ability to heal ourselves and it is my goal as a therapist to help facilitate your own healing process, and to provide you with tools you can use in daily life to continue that journey. My endeavour is to foster your emotional health, promote self-awareness, enhance your confidence, and invite to your life more harmony and balance.
I warmly welcome a wide range of clients. As each person is different, with a unique perspective on life, my practice is constantly evolving, working collaboratively, in co-creative therapeutic relationships, with a strong focus on trust, respect and compassion.
I provide face to face, telephone, or online counselling. Prior to booking I offer 30 min free telephone or Zoom consultation, during which we can sense whether working together feels right.
Since 2011, I have been supporting and holding space for many adults and teenagers with variety of issues including stress, anxiety, depression, anger, low self-esteem, family issues, relationship issues, separation, coping with life changes, attachment issues, childhood trauma, abuse, dissociation, and helping them to identify their needs, apply healthy boundaries, self-care, emotional regulation, and positive self-regard.
I offer a non-judgmental safe space where you can bring any distress, challenges, dilemmas, fears, limited patterns/beliefs that no longer serve you and hold you back in life. At your own pace, we can explore their origin, and consider new ways of thinking, feeling, and relating with these obstacles you are facing.
‘Know-thyself’, is a pivotal foundation for our personal growth and empowerment. I am particularly passionate about inner child work, healing and integrating those wounded parts of self that have been shut down at some point in life and finding your authentic self.
Sometimes to access our hidden feelings, we need to go beyond words into our subconscious experiencing. I may offer mindfulness-based techniques where appropriate, using intuition, immediacy (power of now), imagery, bringing attention to your body sensations, to support all aspects of the therapeutic process.
I have worked as a therapist for different organisations across Sussex, both in community and school-based counselling, supporting individuals and families with multiple difficulties. Besides my private practice, I work as a counsellor at the YMCA DLG offering therapy to young people aged 11 to 18 years old.
