Hi, my name is Tania, and I am a fully qualified and HCPC-registered Clinical Psychologist working with Think CBT from Poole, BH14.
When I was a child I struggled at school. I reliably came last or second to last in the end of year exams and day-dreamed through most of my lessons. I found maths completely pointless and this was confirmed by statements in my report saying ‘Tania finds this subject impossible’. Looking back on my school days, although I did not learn how to do a simultaneous equation my experience of failure has taught me how to become resilient, and although the teachers did not envisage a great academic future ahead I went on to exceed their expectations and my own.
As an adult, I decided to retrain as a Clinical Psychologist and face my own demons and fears of failing.
This journey led not only to professional growth but personal growth, I realised my own self-limited beliefs because of my experience of childhood could either hold me back or enrich me. I met and have helped people who despite awful adversity and trauma have survived and triumphed. I believe the NHS model of care in mental health is unable to meet the ever-increasing demand for therapy. People often have to wait long periods of time to be seen and then the limited sessions they may be allocated often do not even begin to address their needs.
Suicide rates continue to increase in both men and women and young people. I feel passionately that I want to empower people with the best available treatment and therapy by harnessing the latest technology and science. I do not want to be confined by institutional thinking.
Applying what we know about the brain through neuroscience and appreciating how the brain and body can repair when given the right method to facilitate healing is what rocks my boat and gives me a huge sense of satisfaction and achievement.
I abide by the policies and ethical standards laid down by the BABCP and I have full professional indemnity to work as a therapist in the UK.
