About Dr Tania Herbert
Tania is a registered Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years’ experience working with adults (individuals and couples) and adolescents across public, private and research settings. She has lived and worked in Australia and South Africa, and thoroughly enjoys collaborating with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Tania is accustomed to working with a wide range of presenting issues including trauma, anxiety, mood disorders, life changes, adjustment issues, emotion regulation, and health issues - among others. She has a particular interest in posttraumatic stress reactions, and has provided trauma-focussed therapies through specialised services and private practice.
Tania's therapeutic approach is warm, client-centred and collaborative. It's also informed by each client’s unique background, strengths and preferences, and grounded in current, evidence-based practice. She works closely with all clients to develop clear goals for therapy which are regularly reviewed to ensure they're on the right track, making adjustments to the process as needed.
Selecting the most appropriate therapeutic approach is based on an assessment of clients’ symptoms, needs and preferences, informed by current scientific evidence.
Tania understands how important it is for clients to feel comfortable with their therapist (in fact, client-therapist connection is a powerful predictor of therapeutic success!)
