Dr. Tania Stevanin
PhD DP AHP DSFH BPS NCH
I am fascinated by human behaviour and hold a Diploma in Psychology, a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I’m a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and am a member of the British Psychological Society, The National Council of Hypnotherapy and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
I started my professional life in science and I have a PhD in Microbiology and over 10 years’ experience in medical research related to infectious diseases and immunology.
Although I loved working with medical research, it was a very isolating job and I craved for more direct contact with people, so I decided to pursue my passion for Psychology.
After completing a Psychology degree, I decided to work in the area of substance misuse, as it offered me exposure to absolutely all types of social/mental health issues. This I have been doing for the past twelve years, ten of which working for the NHS. As part of my professional development, over the years I have also obtained qualifications in Person Centered Counselling and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
I am passionate about helping people overcome the challenges (past or present) and limiting behaviours that affect their lives. My aim is to help people fulfil their potential and live free from chronic/long-term medical disorders and mental health issues.
The pandemic has made us all realise the important of being able to access support, especially when for whatever reason we find our ability to move around limited, be that due to lack of time or because the service we need is too far. However, it has never been so easy to connect with help through technology and I want to be available to whoever needs me no matter where they live.
