Tania Gadoti Gallindo MBACP registered counsellor
So if you need to talk and be fully heard, you have reached out to the right person. Whatever it is you are experiencing, together we can explore ways to transform it. I feel privileged to do the work I do, to help people discover there is so much more about themselves than they know. To witness the insights, realisations and transformation people go through in this process, is priceless to me. I do work with all individuals including the LGBT + community.
I draw from a variety of approaches, which enables me to give an individualistic approach to each client. My work has a holistic and transpersonal approach to therapy, which sees symptoms or issues as an opportunity for self knowledge and growth. I have trained as a psychosynthesis counsellor, which means a more holistic approach to talking therapy, integrating mind, body, feelings and soul.
Some of the techniques and approaches I use include meditative exercises, EFT, breath work, role playing, dream work, drawing and gestalt. The use of these techniques will follow a rationale, which means they will be used to help you to gain more clarity around a subject you feel stuck, for example. These creative techniques help you to become more aware of why you are experiencing the issues you bring to therapy.
I am warm, approachable and gentle, however I will challenge you in a compassionate way, if I feel it will contribute to your growth. I aim to help you get more clarity on the issue(s) you bring to therapy.
I also offer my services as a Shiatsu practitioner and Craniosacral therapist. I run women's groups on the subject of sexuality and spirituality. I am originally from Brazil where I studied Physical Theatre and Dance.

Training, qualifications & experience
About Me I am an experienced counsellor who have trained at PGDip degree (level 7) at the Psychosynthesis Trust, which is a comprehensive training credited by Middlesex University. I have been working for 20 years as a body therapist, mainly using Shiatsu and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and most recently I have developed a body psychotherapy approach called Psychotherapeutic Bodywork. I have also trained as a coach/facilitator on the subject of women’s sexuality and I have run workshops about it in the UK and abroad. I am originally from Brazil where I studied drama and dance. My experience of living in different cultures has helped me towards a greater sensitivity and understanding of people living in a culture that has a different world view than theirs, and the consequences of it.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
