Dr Mayoni Gooneratne
Over the years as a surgeon and doctor, I have learnt to combine my intuition and expert medical knowledge to help make the best suggestions for you. My background in surgery means I am passionate about selecting only the best, results-driven treatments. I love nothing more than seeing my patients through even the most difficult of times. I try to do this with a sense of humour but above all of this, compassion.
My patients often tell me that they feel guilty about focusing on themselves, but I firmly believe that we can only truly thrive as individuals and be supportive to others if we look after ourselves, too! Making time for ourselves is never time wasted. I am usually at my happiest spending time with my husband and young family, and going for long walks. Personal and professional development are really important to me: I am constantly learning and will often have a couple of books on the go at the same time.
I have worked in the beauty industry for 35 years both overseas and in the UK, in Beauty Therapy and Spa Management. I’m The Clinic’s Advanced Skinfit Specialist, which means I dedicate myself not only to delivering advanced skin treatments, but also to ensuring that patients have a concierged and seamless experience. I have shadowed and been trained up by Dr Mayoni and take great pride in delivering the incredible patient experience that The Clinic has become renowned for – even through repeated lockdowns.
I specialise in a thorough consultation to better understand your skin, taking time to get to know you and put you at your ease. I hope that my experience and insight plus my genuine love of advanced skin care really shine through! When I’m not at work I love spending time with my husband and my friends. We all have a shared love of music, especially R&B, Jazz Funk and Northern Soul, so I’m never off the dance floor!
Tawa Dowling, RN, NIP
I qualified as a nurse in 1994, and worked in various disciplines including cardiology, general surgery and cosmetic surgery for some time. I also completed an applied biology degree at the University of Greenwich. I then wanted to move into healthcare regulation, and so I worked as an inspector with the government regulator, CQC for over 10 years.
I’d wanted to set up my own business for some time, to improve my work/life balance, reduce my stress, and offer a more personal service to people wanting to improve their appearance. Therefore, in early 2018 I set up TD Aesthetics. I’ve since completed foundation and advanced training courses in various aesthetic and medical treatments, specialising in a holistic approach combining treatments, medical grade skincare and oral supplements.
I’m happy to bring the same holistic ethos and approach to The Clinic by Dr Mayoni.
