Tanya qualified as a counselling psychologist in 2009 and is qualified to offer a range of therapies which can be tailored to your individual needs and circumstances. Therapy may involve working on a clearly defined problem area and may be time limited. Alternatively, it may be more appropriate to work in an open-ended contract in which you can explore your issues further.
The main therapeutic approaches Tanya draws on are Compassion Focussed Therapy, Mindfulness, EFT and EMDR. These approaches bring together a broad range of theories and have a strong evidence base in helping people manage their emotional health, and address difficulties associated with trauma, chronic stress and adverse life experiences.
Research has shown that the therapeutic relationship is crucial in determining how helpful therapy can be. Central to her approach is a focus on the therapeutic relationship, which is collaborative and involves working together on an agreed focus for therapy. It is important that you feel that you can trust the therapist you decide to work with.
Since completing her core training in Counselling Psychology, Tanya has completed further training in Compassion Focussed Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement desensitisation and reprocessing) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). The latter two therapies are particularly helpful in addressing problems associated with trauma and chronic stress.
When Tanya is not working or caring for her daughters, she enjoys wild swimming, running and meditation to keep her as happy and as healthy as she can be. Tanya enjoys bringing into her professional work the therapies that she has found to be helpful in supporting her own emotional health and healing from trauma.
