Integrative Therapy and Counselling With Tania Davies

About My Private Practice, Training and Professional Development



My name is Tania Davies and I work with adults as an humanistic integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. I am an accredited member of both BACP and UKCP and am also a member of the International Integrative Psychotherapy Association. I have worked therapeutically with both short-term and long-term clients for more than 6 years, with the NHS, through Mind and in private practice.


My Training, Professional Development and Interests

It is very important to me to know how it feels to be a client, so that I am not asking clients to do something I haven’t been willing to do myself and I spent over 6 years in therapy. This helped me to start to understand my own journey of healing and self development.

I receive regular supervision and I am committed to continuous training so that I can continue to offer my flexible approach. I have travelled around the UK and abroad (including the USA) for workshops and training with experts in a number of fields including trauma therapy, existential therapy, Jungian psychology and child development. I have attended several training courses for healers and creative souls with Clarissa Pinkola Estes, whose integrative approach and philosophy is a huge inspiration and example to me.

I continuously work to review and understand how an integrative and holistic approach to therapy can help clients to heal from childhood trauma and give them relief from PTSD, depression, anxiety, agoraphobia and panic attacks. I have a strong interest in how creativity can aid healing especially storytelling and music, how body work such as Tai Chi and Qi Gong can help to release trauma and I seek to understand healing from a cross cultural perspective. In my Master's dissertation, I explored the question of what is contact between the therapist and client from a mind, body and spirit perspective and how does it help the client to heal. I continue to explore and write about this subject.


My Private Practice


I chose to work in private practice so that I can offer clients more choice and can work with them longer term if required. I can give clients a high degree of control over their therapy, providing a flexible approach tailored to their individual needs. Working in private practice also allows me to offer sessions at various times of the day to suit the client’s availability.

I have chosen to practice from the Quaker House in Roker, Sunderland because it is a beautiful house in a peaceful and convenient location by Roker Park, close to the sea. The Quaker House can easily be reached by bus, by car (with plenty of street parking), and is close to Seaburn Metro station

(see The Sunderland Quaker house website for details of the location and how to get there).
