Tia has experience working with individuals from an array of different backgrounds. Previously worked at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust Cannabis Reduction Clinic involving helping clients reduce their reliance on cannabis and, ultimately, their incidences of psychosis. In addition, working as an Opiate Recovery Worker, helping clients who misuse opiate substances from the beginning of engaging with the service and providing continuous support throughout their recovery journey.
Tia understands that life can be a challenge and we try to find the best ways to cope and tend to develop unhealthy safety strategies which can inadvertently impact our emotional experiences. Trying new ways of coping can be daunting but Tia is there to support her clients, help them gain a sense of comfort and provide them with tools to cope with the up and down struggles.
She provides an open, understanding, and confidential space where you will be met with acceptance.
