Dana is a Counselling Psychologist who completed her clinical doctorate training in counselling psychology at City, University of London. She also holds an MSc in mental health studies from the institute of psychiatry at King’s College London and a BSc honours in psychology from McGill University in Montreal.
Dana has extensive training and experience in using a range of different therapeutic interventions in both one-to-one and group therapy settings including both brief and longer-term therapy. She has clinical experience working with adults, adolescents and children with a range of complex mental health conditions within different professional environments including private sector, NHS counselling services, and third sector organisations.
Dana uses an integrative approach to therapy, drawing from humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural modalities. She believes that therapy can offer individuals the chance to tap into their own strength, creativity and internal capacity for self-development. Her focus is on building genuine, non-judgmental and empathic relationships with her clients, with the intention of creating an environment that facilitates and supports their journey in exploring and finding their inner potential for growth and well-being. She aspires to help clients find a deeper sense of self and a transformed purpose in life.
Her specialisms include depression, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, panic disorders, relationship difficulties, adjusting to change/life transitions and stress management.
Dana’s latest research focuses on how individuals experience themselves and other people on social networking sites as well as how they experience their relationship to social media from a phenomenological perspective.
