Dr. Tania Pilley – BSc (Hons) D.Clin Psych. Dip. Family Therapy, EMDR Specialist Level 3, RGM, RMN.
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the HPC and BPS. I have worked in the NHS for over 20 years and specialised in Child Psychology particularly in anxiety disorders as well as recovery from trauma, mood problems and related issues.
I have also worked extensively with adults and have a Post Graduate Diploma in Family Therapy. I received my Doctorate from University College London and am actively involved in keeping up with the latest techniques and approaches that are evidence based.
I have a particular interest in people who have been traumatised and have successfully treated both children and adults using Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) and /or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). (Both therapies are recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence).
My desire to offer people the most effective treatments available, using cutting edge technology has led to a very keen interest into the huge benefits of Neurobiofeedback and its application for a number of clinical disorders, as well as its utility in enhancing sports performance and business acumen.
For the last ten years I have been working as an expert Clinical Psychologist on the Selection Board of the Foreign Office.
As an aside I also have a passion for horses, as does my 9 year old daughter. Being a mother and a clinician I was alarmed by the number of accidents caused by riding particularly head injuries, this led me to becoming interested in Equitation Science. A discipline that enables you to understand how a horse learns, in turn enabling you to apply these principles to the way you train it, thus significantly reducing the risk of behavioural problems in the horse and consequently reducing the risk of accidents.
