Hello. I am Tina, clinical psychologist and director of TherapySense.
I am registered with Health & Care Professions Council. See my registration here.
I have a specialist interest in working with trauma (including PTSD, developmental and intergenerational trauma). I am also culturally sensitive, which means I take into account and explore issues around race, ethnicity and culture.
If you want to work with a Psychologist that is professional, kind and above all human, you have come to the right place.
If you work with me I will be particularly interested in hearing your story. What I listen for is how the events in your life have shaped you. I aim to help you to make sense of issues that you have faced and we work together to help you manage the issues you are facing.
I use a number of different psychological models to inform my practice which include; Cognitive Behavioural, Compassion Focused, Attachment, Psychodynamic, Systemic and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
I am passionate about empowerment when we need it the most. Painful emotions are so difficult to share and often difficult for people to understand.
As a clinical psychologist, I want to provide you a space to think about you and your world, no matter how difficult it may feel.

My name is Amy Woolston, I have been working as a qualified Clinical Psychologist since 2007.
I have experience working with children and adolescents, and with families in the perinatal period (pregnancy- 1 year postnatal).
I am particularly interested in working with mothers and fathers in the perinatal period. This is a time of significant change and can be a psychologically difficult time.
I have worked with antenatal and postnatal depression and anxiety, birth trauma, loss and adjustment issues.
Whilst this can be a psychologically difficult time, I also believe it is also a window of opportunity for therapeutic work.
I am an elective practitioner, drawing on a number of theoretical psychological models. I have a particular interest in attachment and believe that understanding our own early relationships and experiences can give people the framework to move forward.
I work with clients as individuals, collaboratively and at their own pace.
I also run a not for profit support service for new mums and dads in Redditch. Please follow us on instagram and facebook @wearethekoalatree
Amy (Dr Amy Elliott) is a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Practitioner Psychologist. Amy has worked in psychological services within the NHS for over 15 years, encompassing a range of different clinical settings with individuals and their families across all age ranges. She currently works in a community service with adults experiencing mental health difficulties.
Amy has experience of working in a number of different modalities, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). She works in an integrative way in her current practice, drawing on a range of different approaches to best meet the individual’s need. Amy has a particular interest in Experiential Dynamic Therapy (EDT) and has completed a 3-year core training in this approach accredited by the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association (IEDTA). EDT is a collaborative approach which focuses on the importance of experiencing rather than avoiding feelings. When feelings are blocked, this can lead to a range of symptoms or presenting problems, such as anxiety and depression. Paying attention to emotions and developing capacity to experience them, can help the individual to become more connected to what is important in their lives and enabling them to act in ways that are more in line with this. This approach can also help to develop a stronger sense of self and in turn deeper, more connected relationships with others.
Amy works with a broad range of difficulties including (but not limited to) anxiety, stress, depression, low self-confidence and self-esteem, relationships difficulties, difficulties relating to early life experiences. She also works with psychological difficulties arising from physical health problems, including medically unexplained symptoms/somatic problems and chronic pain.
Clients seeing Amy are invited to meet her at one of two venues, in Solihull or Knowle; both venues are 7 minutes from Junction 5 of the M42.
Hello, I am Sandra Locke and I am the Business Administrator for TherapySense.
Finally, I have found a job that I love, and that I am passionate about. It plays to my strengths as an Administrator and my interest in psychology, mental health and emotional awareness. Having worked at Mondelez (formerly Cadbury) as a Personal Assistant to various Directors for over 15 years I felt it was time to leave and look for a new opportunity and challenge.
I have an interest in anxiety and how it can have a huge impact on our everyday lives. Having suffered with Generalised Anxiety Disorder and Health Anxiety I have real empathy for anyone that is experiencing it. I had serious and prolonged panic attacks over several years and was prescribed a medication which was not for me. Eventually I had Cognitive Behaviour Therapy which helped me understand what was happening to me and enabled me to manage the attacks. I rarely suffer from panic attacks anymore.
I am also very interested in children and teenage anxiety and how we, as parents can help, listen and support our children to enable them to manage their feelings and emotions.
Outside of work I am kept very busy with my husband and 2 boys who are football mad so most of my time is spent watching and playing football and taking them to parties. When I do have free time then I enjoy running at the local gym, socialising and reading.
I will be your port of call for enquiries, bookings and questions. Contact me if you have any questions.
