Much recent research into therapy has highlighted the importance of the working relationship between client and therapist. 

This is the highest marker for improvement and change in therapy.  I work in a way to establish trust in our working relationship together.  At times, some people may find this difficult, but what is important is for us to talk about where you currently are with what is happening for you and what you would like to gain from our work together. 

Therapy offers the opportunity to explore your experiences with me as a trained, experienced and thoughtful therapist in the following ways:

“I fully recommend Tara as a counsellor of couples as well as individuals. When she was employed by our agency she worked very successfully with people of all ages presenting with a wide range of issues and her clients would always comment on her warmth and understanding”

Counselling offers short-term work for a range of problems; these may be specific or general, long term or short.  Counselling is also a more gentle way of working which suits some people, particularly if being heard or listened to has been, or is a problem.  Read more……


Psychotherapy consists of more in-depth work.  We can look at how things have been for you and what you now need.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be long-term but this will depend on what you want to achieve. Read more…. 

Family Therapy

Family therapy can consist of couples work or parent and child work.  Relationships can sometimes go through challenges and family therapy can look at these and seek to assist with what is going on. Read more…

I offer a free 30-minute initial session for us to talk through what you are looking for and the possibility of us working together.  This session is at a pre-arranged time and can be in the therapeutic setting or by telephone.  Please feel free to contact me to schedule an appointment.

An individual therapy session with me lasts for 50 minutes and the price is £45 per session. The number of sessions needed is entirely led by you but together we can discuss what to expect.  Couples therapy is £55 per session and lasts for one hour.  Parent/child relationship counselling is dependent on the age of the child; under 18’s will cost £45 per session, over 18 will cost £55 per session (those in full-time education will cost £45). 

Please contact me for a confidential chat to discuss your needs and how working with me can help.
