Hello, my name is Tanya.
As a counsellor- psychotherapist for over 25 years and a supervisor of counsellors for 15, I continue to see how helpful counselling can be. I currently have face to face availability on Mondays and Tuesdays
Are you finding life tough, trying to deal with stress, anxiety, loss, feeling low or depressed or the impact of abuse and trauma?
Are you finding daily life hard to manage, or perhaps there is there a specific issue that is impacting you? I am sorry that you are having to struggle - life can get us down and sometimes the most courageous thing we can do is to seek some support.
I offer you my extensive experience as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer of counsellors so that together we can find the best way forward for you to resolve the things that are troubling you.
I have many years experience as a counsellor in various charities and voluntary sector groups supporting people with all sorts of life difficulties as well as specialist services working with survivors of abuse.
I have particular experience and expertise in working with the impact of trauma and early life difficulties as well as attachment. I am trained in sensorimotor psychotherapy which pays attention to the body holding trauma and also work with issues such as fibromyalgia, ME, chronic fatigue syndrome.
I also enjoy working with counselling students in personal therapy.
I have supervised counsellors who are students in training, new and experienced counsellors as well as providing ad hoc consultation supervision on trauma, dissociation and attachment issues.
I have been a trainer on L3 and L4 counselling training with CPCAB and am currently a L5 Diploma Trainer on Trauma.
I provide a wide range of training and workshops.

  • Qualifications & Experience
    I have a Diploma and Masters in Counselling, a Diploma in Supervision and Certificate in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
    I am a Senior Accredited member of National Counselling Society (NCS), have professional insurance with Howden and am registered for data protection with ICO. I take seriously ongoing training and my own personal therapy and supervision in order to be as resourced as possible to support you.
