Dr Tania Ahern

Tania qualified as a medical doctor in 1999 at St Mary’s Hospital Medical School, Imperial College London. After completing her general practice training, she worked for several years as a GP in Brighton. Her interest in psychological health led Tania to train as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), at the University of Canterbury. Since graduating with a post-graduate diploma, Tania has worked in various health organisations, both the NHS & private sector. She has also been part of multidisciplinary teams, focusing on measures to help improve general health, performance and wellbeing of health professionals and other individuals. Tania’s area of special interest is the treatment of insomnia using the CBT approach. When practicing as a GP, she was made very aware of how common this sleep disorder is, and the negative psychological, social and physical impact it can cause. Tania is experienced in delivering individual and group CBT sessions for a wide range of mental health problems and insomnia.
