About me

Hello, my name is Dr Tamara Vaughan, I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). I have over 10 years experience working in the NHS and private sector, supporting individuals experiencing a range of difficulties related to their wellbeing.

Relationship difficulties, bereavements, life transitions are some of the many things that can catch us off-guard, causing us to question ourselves/our lives and leaving us feeling overwhelmed, scared, numb and struggling to function as we’re used to. Or maybe you don’t feel that anything major has happened, but that something just doesn’t feel right. Many of the people I work with for example, describe themselves as textbook “high achievers” who have accomplished a lot but also carry with them a sense of longing, of life feeling flat or that, despite the successes, they as a person still just aren’t ‘good enough.’

My approach is integrative, meaning that I draw on a range of specialist modalities to create a bespoke approach tailored to your needs, difficulties and goals. Some of the modalities that I draw on are, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), CBT, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, attachment and trauma-informed approaches. I also have specialist training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Whatever your reasons for seeking therapy, know that you will receive a warm and non-judgmental space to unpack and unpick the layers of your experiences, to make sense of some of the patterns which might be keeping you stuck and leaving you overwhelmed or underwhelmed. We will work together to create greater clarity, and with compassion and balance, to piece things back together in a way that leaves you feeling like a healthier, more empowered and more authentic version of yourself.
