Tanya Doany picThe human mind and behaviour have always been an interest for me. Having completed my degree in Psychology and Fine Art, I went onto train and work in a major mental health facility in Northampton for 6 years. Since 2009 I have been helping clients as a counsellor at Highgate Counselling Centre, where I had also obtained my Psychodynamic Diploma.

I specialise in the Psychodynamic approach, which enables clients to explore and link their past, present and future experiences and offers them an opportunity to address unresolved conflicts of the past. Through this uniquely individual journey, clients are assisted to gain greater insight to their personality and be enabled to create long lasting ways of change in their present behaviour and future choices; achieving healing, acceptance and transformation, thus, significant improvement in life.

Throughout my career I have worked with and assisted many clients with the following problems:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Loss and Bereavement
  • Relationship issues
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Addiction
  • Drug abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harm
  • Family issues
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Drug induced psychosis
  • Childhood trauma
  • Low self esteem
  • Sexuality
  • Gender identity
  • Displacement
  • Anger issues
  • Obsessive compulsive behaviour
  • Work related stress
  • Fertility issues
  • Post natal depression.

Clients will be assisted to follow their unique journey in an entirely non-judgemental and confidential process. I believe in an insight-oriented therapy, which will integrate several techniques that are tuned to each individual’s need and pace.I offer both short-term, focused sessions and on-going counselling which can include phone sessions if required during the process.

I am a fully registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. To arrange an initial consultation contact me by telephone or email.
