Tanya Brown

Hi, I'm Tanya.

I work as a counsellor and psychotherapist with adults and young adults.

I offer a relationship-focused and down-to-earth approach to therapy. With compassion and empathy, I will seek to understand your personal experiences, thoughts and feelings. We will explore how your experiences have affected the way you view and feel about yourself and your circumstances. We will focus on using your strengths and the things that you will learn about yourself, to work out the best way to integrate these insights into your current circumstances and therapeutic goals.

I work with a broad range of client issues and challenges; however, a large proportion of my clients seek support for the following: various forms of abuse - including sexual violence and historical sexual abuse; difficulties in family, personal, work relationships and friendships; low self-esteem; assertiveness and implementing boundaries; ADHD; bereavement, loss and transitions; cultural diversity and those wanting to explore their difficulties from a faith-based perspective – especially from a Christian foundation.

Background

I have 10 years’ experience of working with vulnerable people, both in-person and remotely, within psychotherapy, counselling, employment and volunteering. I have worked with YMCA, Rape Crisis Care Group, Samaritans, a residential support unit for homeless young adults, and an organisation which supports those in financial difficulties.

In my employed and voluntary roles I have been responsible for the training of those who offer support at times of extreme distress, despair and suicidality. I have a particular love of education and learning, and I am committed to ongoing professional development.

Qualifications and memberships

I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am also a member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).

I adhere to the ethical principles and code of professional conduct of UKCP and BACP.

I am available for face-to-face appointments on Sunday afternoons, and I offer online appointments on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
