Dania Percy, Provisional Psychologist, completed a Bachelor of Science (BSc) with distinction in Neuroscience and Psychology in 2006. Dania conducted theoretical research into understanding the neural basis of consciousness, perception, emotions, decision making and attention with Professors such as Christof Koch & Antonio Damasio – at top neuroscience labs in the world including Caltech. She started a PhD in Neurology and quit after completing the course work to continue her life’s quest to understand how and why we form a conscious representation of reality – through contemplative, introspective and mindfulness based approaches.
Through developing her mind, Dania learnt and understood the ways to train the mind towards genuine happiness and fulfilment. After 8 years of mindfulness training, contemplation and inward reflection, strong compassion arose to help others to become free of their stess, pain and mental suffering. Dania combines a scientific understanding of the mind, using the latest empirically tested psychological therapy models (mainly CBT & ACT) and an introspective approach.
Since then Dania has been facilitating the movement of wellbeing in Perth, through public talks, workshops, mindfulness meditation retreats and through one-on-one counselling and coaching. Dania has undertaken the path towards becoming a registered psychologist and she is currently registered with AHPRA as a provisional psychologist.
After many years of using the western scientific paradigms of neuroscience and psychology to understand the mind, human experience and reality, along with immersing herself in mindfulness training traditions, she and her husband Michael have taken the best of these worlds to deliver strategies and programs to help others achieve focus, clarity, work-life balance, fulfilment and success.
