Tania Gessi







I’m a BACP registered psychotherapist. I offer both short-term counselling and longer term, open-ended psychotherapy, depending on your needs. I can offer both online and in-person sessions.

I trained as a person-centred psychotherapist, which means that I place you at the heart of the therapeutic process. Your experiences, values, and goals are the compass that guides our work together. I focus on my therapeutic relationship with you, as I believe that it is the quality of our therapeutic alliance that can bring about personal growth and transformation. I use a diverse range of therapeutic techniques to meet your unique needs. Additionally, I trained as a somatic therapist so am in tune with how trauma manifests in the body, and familiar with alternative healing modalities, together with more traditional therapeutic approaches, that can offer you additional tools and techniques to support your healing journey.

I work as a counselling tutor, as well as being a published author.

I’m bilingual and offer my services in both English and Italian.

Relevant Qualifications 

Higher Professional Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Higher Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I undertake regular Continuous Professional Development Courses in different therapeutic approaches and have specialised in Anxiety and Depression, Addictive Behaviours, Grief, Anger Expression, Trauma and PTSD, Working with Young People, and Suicide Prevention.


Deciding to seek help can seem daunting and scary, and it takes courage to take that first step. I’m here to support you on your journey to healing and self-empowerment.

Life sometimes can feel overwhelming, and you may find yourself stuck in the same relationships patterns, lacking motivation, feeling lonely or disconnected, experiencing low self-esteem, or simply sensing that something isn’t quite right. These feelings are more common than you think, and you’re not alone in experiencing them. 

As a qualified psychotherapist, I'm dedicated to helping you navigate these challenges. I provide a safe, empathic, and non-judgemental space where we will explore the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that may be holding you back. Together, we will recognise and break free from self-defeating patterns. You will have the opportunity to reconnect with your innate worth, and develop effective coping strategies. 

Through our therapeutic partnership, my aim is to empower you to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life.
