Tanya Uren is a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist with more than 18 years’ experience. She has been working solely in private practice for 10 years. She offers individual consultations for adults in the CBD in Melbourne and in Thornbury.
Earlier on in her career Tanya worked on the PTSD program for Vietnam Veterans at the Veterans Psychiatry Unit (VPU), Austin Health for over 6 years and so developed considerable experience in treating PTSD. In her later years there she became a Senior Clinical Psychologist within the PTSD Program and ran a longer-term Rehabilitation Program for the VPU.
Tanya is avidly interested in the benefits of group-based treatments as well. She has run several successful groups from short-term CBT programs for anxiety and depression to long-term experiential Radix psychotherapy groups which clients experience as allowing them to release repressed emotions and access profound joy and freedom.
She currently offers weekend workshops in Radix to help clients deepen in their personal work. Please email Tanya if you are interested to attend one of these.
In her private practice she is particularly interested in helping clients recover from difficult childhood experiences and traumatic events. She also has a keen interest in grief counselling. Her Honours thesis was on the impact of perinatal bereavement for women from an attachment and meaning-making perspective. She has an abiding interest in how we make meaning in our lives, particularly in these troubled times.
Tanya is very committed to developing her own capacity to be mindful and has an established meditation practice to support this.
