"Know all the theories, master all the techniques, but as you touch a human soul, be just another human soul." C. Jung
I offer Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Psychotherapeutic bodywork, Shiatsu and Craniosacral Therapy in Gloucestershire, Stroud and South West London. I offer face to face and online sessions.
I work with individuals, young and older people offering long term Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Craniosacral Therapy, Psychotherapeutic Bodywork, and Shiatsu.
I am registered with the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and with CSTA (Craniosacral Therapy Association of UK)
I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor and bodyworker specialising in anxiety and trauma. I help you to reconnect with the inherent wisdom of your being which is unique to you. I have worked as body therapist for over 20 years now and the experience of working physically and energetically greatly complements what I have to offer as a counsellor. Likewise my training and experience in psychotherapy informs the bodywork I offer. Most importantly, I care immensely to what I do and deeply enjoy my work, which brings people to know themselves beyond of their usually, limited self image.The work I offer is about deep listening, self-reflection, slowing down, and connecting to the stillness within, which leads ultimately and inevitably to self-awareness and healing.
I draw from a variety of methods, both somatic and psychologic, which enables me to give an individualistic approach to each client. My work has a holistic and transpersonal touch to therapy, which sees symptoms or issues as an opportunity for self knowledge and growth. I have trained as a psychosynthesis counsellor, which is an integrative type of psychotherapy. It brings together different elements of specific therapies such as Freudian, Transpersonal, Constellation therapy, Gestalt, Biodynamic and Attachment Therapies, to name a few.
I am particularly interested in Jungian psychotherapy with its many ways to induce awareness, by unravelling and unpacking unconscious material, which influences how you lead your life. The unconscious part of your psyche controls you, like a puppet master, which can be seen in your behaviour, attitudes, thinking process and how you relate to others in your life. My work is about bringing awareness to these unconscious forces that rules your life. Once the unravelling of the unconscious process is ignited, there is an opportunity for a more authentic part of yourself to emerge, or in other words you start to outgrow your experience or issue. Ultimately you are able to take a bird eye view on your situation, and therefore dis-identify from a way of being, which no longer fits. This type of work generates self-confidence, self-worth, self-esteem and self-positive regard, as you become the author of your life and finally able to edit the script you've be given.
I am warm, approachable but 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.
It might be that you are seeking a bodywork approach to deal with your issue. Or perhaps you really need to talk in confidence in a non-judgmental way with someone that can really listen to you and Psychotherapeutic Counselling might be the best way to address your issue(s).
Whatever way you decide to go about transforming your situation, I am happy to support you. Whatever it is the issue or difficulty you may be going through, reach out. Things can get better.
".....I left each session feeling like I owned a bit more of myself, and could actually change a side about me that I never really liked.
It's a daily exercise and a long path but something has changed inside me and I look forward to continuing the journey.
Thank you Tania, there should be more kind and beautiful people like you to make this a better world.''
"Tania is an exceptional natural healer with a beautiful calm approach. She very easily get in tune with your energy and works with it in an expansive way. I found her sessions healing, calming and enlivening. I highly recommend Tania's particular style of Craniosacral, which encompasses depth and years of experience."

Psychotherapeutic Counsellor in Gloucestershire & Psychotherapeutic Bodyworker and Craniosacral Therapy in Stroud.
I've been in therapy with Tania for 17 months during that time she helped me to interact with myself using the psychosynthesis model.
First I learnt to explore my problems with confidence and honesty then I started to dig down into my past to discover the traumas of my childhood and that allowed me to love myself at a different level, by acceptance and forgiveness, which is definitely the best way to feel more confident and positive.
I believe that life is a long journey where mistakes and forgiveness have an important role in helping us to grow, and not just as a person but also as a soul.
A good therapist guides you during this journey and Tania has done it perfectly during the time we worked together. Tania is very friendly and careful about listening and understanding, she had the ability to discuss my problems without interfering in my decisions and to make me think about my choices.
I would strongly recommend Tania Gallindo to those that are willing to discover the strength inside themselves and the potential of gaining a healthier lifestyle.
