Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide which issue concerning your childhood or adult life you explore. The aim of counselling is to help you to speak about a difficulty and find a way forward which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Humanistic therapy focuses on valuing you. It considers you as a whole person and prioritises your personal growth. Humanistic therapy aims to help you realise your autonomy.

Psychoanalytic Therapy

Psychoanalytic therapy concentrates on the unconscious meaning of the problems you encounter. It fosters your consciousness of parts of your unconscious. An objective of psychoanalytic therapy is for you to attain personal insight and use it if you wish to.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy centres on the unconscious meaning of the issues you experience. It facilitates you in becoming conscious of parts of your inner dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to increase your self-understanding to give you choices.

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Tania offers a very relaxed and cosy therapy setting, and she is excellent at giving practical guidance for using DBT skills to improve interpersonal relationships. For me personally I have been able to see the benefits right from the first session, and whilst in the sessions we have addressed some difficult and troubling issues, I have left every session feeling more positive than at the beginning."
