Tania Mattiocco

Tania has a body psychotherapy and counselling practice in the Northern Rivers, NSW, and she is also a teaching assistant at the Institute. She believes a good therapist can only help clients to the extent that a therapist does their own in depth healing work. To this end Tania is dedicated to continuous learning and growing, both professionally and personally.

Tania has a passion for helping people live authentic and vibrant lives. She creates a setting of safety, support, trust, confidentiality & love to bring the best out of her clients.
She sees the human body as a powerful organism not meant to be burdened with our woes. Rather it is designed to be a dynamic energy system that carries and expresses the power and the longings of our hearts, minds, souls and spirit.

Tania believes:
“The more we face and release our fears, our pain and our blocks, the more we can connect  with our inner world, our gifts and our truth. This creates healing, intimacy, belonging, connection, purpose, joy, pleasure and vitality in our lives, our relationships, and our communities.”
