My personal professional philosophy is based on my strong belief that we can change

our lives to a better quality due to self-actualisation, constant development and personal

responsibility and, through psychotherapy, can achieve a good balance between what we

want and what we must and can do to get what we wish: health, relationship,

love, success and self-esteem.

Dr. Tania Leigh, Psychologist

Hello, I'm Dr Tania Leigh

I'm experienced Psychologist and Psychotherapist, accredited member of Gestalt Psychotherapy & Training Institute (GPTI), registered with UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). My previous work both in academic and practical fields of clinical and occupational health psychology provided me with a certain understanding about the environmental and social impact on a person's life and the ways how people can adjust them to their own situation, successfully or not. The practical application of my PhD research was a Training Course for increasing work-related stress resistance, which I developed basically from my psychotherapeutic experience. I offer bespoke therapy for individuals, couples and groups of people on a variety of issues including  relationship problems, infertility, stress-related conditions of health and psychosomatic problems, anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, low self-esteem etc. Also, I offer thematic workshops and training for mental health professionals and for all people who are interested in personal and professional development. 
Sessions can be held either in English, Russian and Ukrainian. Skype sessions are also available
