Welcome to my private practice
As a Clinical Psychologist with over 18 years of experience, Tanya is well equipped to help her clients deal with a wide range of psychological issues.
My primary intention as a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist is to provide an environment where each client feels safe, respected, fully listened to, cared for and emotionally understood. It is only by creating “an atmosphere of permission” where trust, empathy and unconditional regard can flourish, that deep personal transformation can occur in psychotherapy.
I see the psychological problems we present with as stemming from our unmet needs around safety, dependency, love, worth and freedom. We develop strategies over time to protect us from our emotional wounds. In this way our personality structure is formed as an adaptive strategy to be in the world, in the best way we can manage.
When clients choose, Tanya draws on her subsequent training.
Tanya offers mindfulness and body centred techniques in therapy to allow her clients to access, understand and release core emotional blocks in deeply transformative ways, using the somatic psychotherapies of Hakomi and Radix.
