About us

At Talk Manage Change (TMC Psychology) our approach centres around finding simple ways to understand how complex patterns of difficulties come about, and how these can be changed. 

My brand of psychological therapy focusses on building resilience by finding your strengths and supporting you into a position of better mental health and well-being. 

Being human can be a wonderful experience, full of joy and connection. But it can also be overwhelming, bewildering and exhausting. I strongly believe everyone can benefit from psychological therapy at some point in their life. The very nature of being human means having a powerful brain that can be prone to worry, and a body with millennia old hardware not perfectly suited to the modern lives we lead. 

We are blessed with an array of emotions and drives, but these may leave us feeling confused or conflicted, like being pulled in different directions at the same time. Our threat detection system can set of false alarms causing us to feel anxious when we are safe, and making it difficult to do the things we want to do.

It’s no wonder many of us end up repeating unhelpful behaviours inspite of our knowledge and best intentions. We get stuck in cycles that feel familiar but counterproductive, wanting to change but not knowing how to make this happen. Sometimes we need help.

At Talk Manage Change we understand the importance of treating you as an individual. You may struggle with: anxiety, low mood, OCD, overwhelming emotions, PTSD, relationship difficulties, or you might like to improve your self-esteem, confidence and overall functioning. We will work together using a tailored combination of psychological therapies including: Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Comittment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Schema Therapy, amongst others. 

The aim of psychological therapy is to unsettle existing patterns, while providing a safe and comforting relationship within which to explore new, more effective strategies, improving your ability to adapt to life’s ever-changing circumstances.

Whether you are seeing us face to face in Chiswick, or for online therapy, we will work collaboratively and holistically, taking into account systemic and cultural factors that may affect your experience.

Afrah Al-Yufrusi

Hello, my name is Afrah and I am an experienced Art Psychotherapist , Psychosexual and Relationship therapist, and DDP (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy) practitioner, with over 14 years of experience. 

The majority of my professional journey has been with the NHS, where I spent over 13 years specializing in complex cases as a part of a dedicated team. I have had the opportunity to engage with children who are looked after and adopted, as well as their extended networks. This experience has equipped me with a unique perspective and skillset, allowing me to navigate the intricate dynamics within families. My goal is to empower families with the knowledge and insight to facilitate meaningful change and growth.

I have trained as a Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist at the Tavistock Institute London. In my role as a Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist, I provide sessions for both couples and individuals with a wide range of needs. This includes issues such as sexual pain, low desire, erectile difficulties and other sexual concerns. I also work with couples facing the complex decision to separate, providing support and guidance while always keeping the welfare of their children at the forefront.

My dedication extends to ensuring that minority groups, such as the LGBTQ+ community and cultural minorities, receive the attention and care they deserve, and I am committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming space for all.

My aim is to create a safe and therapeutic environment where we can explore the past, address the present, and make informed decisions about the future. It is my privilege to walk alongside my clients as they navigate their personal challenges, discover their strengths, and embrace their potential for a brighter future.

I am fully registered with the HCPC and my registration number is AS13696.

Customer reviews

Thank you so much for all of the support you have provided. It's been completely life changing and I am so grateful. Not once did I ever begrudge having to come along to therapy. It's always been something I've looked forward to. I have steadily seen progress and felt myself change in lots of different ways. Tanya is a highly skilled, kind, and compassionate practitioner and I have really valued all of the work we've done together.

Dr Tanya McDonnaugh is an exceptional psychologist. I say this as a psychologist myself. I have never made as much progress with anyone. Her approach is gentle, insightful, professional and incredibly nuanced meaning that it may not at first be obvious the amazing steps being made. She truly is fantastic. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for psychological support.

Thanks to Dr McDonnaugh I can certainly say that I have progressed towards my goals and learnt to be more compassionate towards myself. Dr McDonnaugh is kind, professional, attentive and supportive. She provided a safe space for sharing my emotions and helped me understand their impact. The strategies and tools provided during and after the sessions are also very practical and helpful to refer to. Thank you for all your help!

Dr Tanya has an amazingly warm and caring manner that enabled my daughter to really benefit from therapy for the first time - she had previously tried two other therapists but stopped quickly as she was unable to feel trust with them. It was also the first time anyone had mentioned ADHD to us, which Dr Tanya picked up on in the very first session, so it was a big relief to us to understand where some of her behaviour may stem from.

I highly recommend TMC Psychology. Dr McDonnaugh’s wealth of expertise and experience was very evident by the quality of her treatments.I felt like her approach was tailor made for my care. Each session had a nice sense of structure whilst always remaining flexible. Dr McDonnaugh incorporated various forms of (psychological) therapy to help me. I can’t thank her enough for her expert care. I am in a much better place now and owe a great deal of that to her support.

My life after working with Dr Tanya is unrecognisable. I’ve gone from being in a very dark and foggy place to having an amazing quality of life. Tanya has given me the skills to understand and have control over my emotions. I feel strong enough to deal with whatever comes my way. Dr Tanya is kind, compassionate, non judgemental and extremely knowledgeable. I’ll be forever grateful for what she’s helped me achieve.

I wanted to write to thank you for your help, it's made a HUGE difference, life changing. She (child) recently sat a quite hard mock exam and was calm and collected about it. The turn around has been extraordinary, I don't know how to thank you.
