In order to facilitate effective or meaningful therapy, it is important that clients can feel comfortable enough to establish a strong therapeutic relationship with their counsellor. This relationship is built on trust, empathy, respect, confidentiality, clear boundaries, and a non-judgemental approach. 
Tina Scott

I was born and brought up in Scotland. After completing a degree in Linguistics at Edinburgh University, I worked in speech technology research before taking some time out to raise a family. I later trained in Lincoln as a Therapeutic Counsellor. 

As a counsellor, I have worked for the last nine years in a variety of settings:

  • with children and young people at CASY, a Nottinghamshire based charity providing counselling to children and young people, seeing clients in their own school setting.

  • at the Lincolnshire Centre for Grief and Loss, providing bereavement and loss counselling to children and adults.

  • with University students

  • with NW Counselling Hub in Lincoln

  • in private practice, working with children (including Looked After Children), young people, and adults.


As a person-centred, integrative counsellor I believe that everyone is unique and no single approach can support all clients. My work is very much client-led. I will fit the therapy to the client, using whatever techniques and tools are appropriate. I work with young children through therapeutic play. Children communicate through play and in a safe therapeutic setting they are free to explore their feelings at their level and pace. I have an Enhanced DBS certificate registered with the Online Update Service.


I am an Accredited Member of The National Counselling Society (membership number NCS21-02273) and adhere to their code of ethics. For more information see I hold full Counselling and Psychotherapy Insurance. 

I am passionate about counselling and its enormous potential to enable growth and change, build resilience and enhance wellbeing.
