Tina Griffiths from allways counselling service in Swindon

Hello . . .

My name is Tina Griffiths; I am an Accredited Counsellor with the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I started "allways counselling services Swindon", to provide an affordable, professional counselling and coaching service for individuals and couples. I have been a counsellor and coach in Swindon for over 18 years.

My counselling and coaching training included the following theoretical models:

  • Person Centred Counselling - client lead, enabling you to find own solutions and make changes if you choose
  • Psychodynamic Counselling - understand how the past influences the present
  • Solution Focused Counselling - based in the present and future, what is working, identifying skills, strengths, a focused counselling approach, focus on a solution not the problem
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - changing behaviours and challenging unhelpful thoughts
  • Personal Coaching - goal/target driven, motivational, emphasis on change

This wide variety in my training combined with my counselling and coaching experience enables me to work in different counselling styles.

During the initial counselling session we will work together to establish what your hopes and expectations are from attending counselling sessions.

As the counselling sessions evolve we will establish between the two of us what counselling approach will be most helpful for you or you and your partner for couples counselling.

The counselling approach can be adapted at any time to best suit your own personal needs for attending counselling.

Apart from my counselling practice at "allways counselling services Swindon", I also work with :-

  • Vita Minds as a High Intensity Counselling Therapist providing specialist Counselling for Depression.
  • Cranfield University Shrivenham near Swindon, I provide counselling support for their civilian students.
  • Great Western Hospital Swindon, I am of member of their Staff Support Counselling Team, offering Counselling to GWH Staff members.

Apart from my counselling practice at "allways counselling services Swindon", I also previously worked with :-

  • The National Health Service (NHS) for 15 years, working with clients using Cognitive Behavioural Theory (CBT) and Person-Centred Counselling. Client's issues include such things as: stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self-esteem, bereavement, long term chronic pain and chronic fatigue. I worked on a one-to-one counselling basis and co-delivered psychological educational courses.
  • Before establishing "allways counselling services Swindon" in 2011, I worked as a Counsellor and business partner for six years within a local Counselling Organisation.

I have undertaken and passed further training in Counselling for Depression, Couples Counselling for Depression with the Improving Access To Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service, an NHS programme.

I am experienced at working in different counselling settings including both private and public sector. My counselling work also includes working collaboratively with local and national organisations and charities.

As an accredited member of the BACP, my practice has been judged competent and ethical by the national association of UK therapists.

I have a full DBS check (Disclosure & Barring Service).

Prior to working as a counsellor, I worked for Headway Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre Swindon, helping clients and their families who had suffered either an acquired or traumatic head injury, using Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy. For several years I also worked for a major global oil company in a wide variety of different commercial and business roles.
