Therapist Martina Tomkova
For nearly 10 years Tina has focussed on the field of Counselling and has been developing her therapeutic skills. She is also enormously inspired by holistic traditions which help her to focus on a person as whole – mind, body, and spirit.
Her approach is rooted in the person-centred tradition of valuing each person as a unique individual and trusting their ability to be self-governing. She is guided by ethical principles of empathy, non-judgmental attitude, and acceptance, in order to foster a client’s growth, healing capacity, resilience, wisdom and self-empowerment. It is about every individual being psychologically independent and maintaining his or her psychological integrity.
Tina has been working in both community and school settings supporting children, teenagers and adults with wide range of issues including; relationships problems, stress and anxiety problems, depression, vulnerability, personal development, lack of self- worth, behaviour problems, self-harming, eating problems, suicidal feelings, bullying, childhood trauma, attachment issues, loss and bereavement and sexual abuse.
Tina has a BSc in Person-Centred and Integrative Counseling, a Diploma in Counseling and Psychotherapy and has also studied Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction techniques, Shamanic Healing, Pranic Healing, Neuroscience, Meditation, Psychic Awareness, and Lucid Dreaming.
