Tanya's vision for SenseWell (short for Sensitivity Wellness), began almost 30 years ago with a strong desire to help others who suffer from mental and emotional anguish due to experiencing their life intensely. Tanya’s desire to help others grew from coming to an appreciation of her own highly sensitive nature and having overcome crippling anxiety and depression. Tanya began SenseWell as a Counselling Practice in 2015 and having completed her Psychology Internship in June 2020 has relaunched SenseWell as a private Psychology practice. Tanya has devoted her career to researching and training in evidence-based interventions that assist individuals with powerful emotional dysregulation and distressing life problems or behaviours in order to provide effective interventions that work and provide relief to her clients. Tanya has worked in the Mental Health Sector for ten years in a variety of roles such as an Intern Psychologist, Counsellor, Mental Health Support Worker, Mental Health Trainer and Support Group Facilitator.
