17+ Years Post-Registration Experience

Hello. I'm Tara. I'm a registered psychotherapist - I assist individuals with their mental wellbeing. I have private sector experience as a psychotherapist. My interest includes self esteem and stress, and the specific problems experienced by women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment session allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy may help you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment appointment in Chilton Foliat, Hungerford or Ramsbury, Marlborough.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on how your thoughts affect your emotions and behaviour. It identifies and addresses negative thoughts which maintain the issues you encounter. The aim of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends cognitive behavioural therapy for anorexia nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and social anxiety disorder.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what matter regarding your early years and/or adult life you explore. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and discover a way forward which is appropriate for you.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you face. It explores your ideas, feelings and significant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or discover appropriate ways of managing.

Thoughts on Mental Health

I often begin a session with three moments of assisting my clients to ground themselves in this moment - to feel their feet on the floor, to notice their body becoming heavy in the chair, to bring their attention to a hand, a finger, or even just the touch of their eyelids as the top ones rest on the bottom ones. It is like coming home to themselves, and the work that follows is so much more enjoyable, relevant and powerful. I also encourage them to return to themselves for three minutes a day, and clients discover a joy and completeness in this process.

Giving birth is a normal, natural part of life, and for many parents a truly wonderful experience. However, first time mothers are often unprepared for this event and may be overwhelmed by fear and feelings of inadequacy. Dramatic stories from friends, relatives and the media contribute to negative anticipation, tension and anxiety. The birthing body is inhibited from functioning naturally, and even the baby can be negatively impacted. Birth may become stressful for all involved, and both parents and baby suffer. Any anxiety during pregnancy, whether it is about the upcoming birth, about becoming a parent, or even something like how the family dog will react to a new arrival, will affect not only the mother's wellbeing, but also that of the baby. Babies, even in utero, are aware and they remember. Calm and gentle births that are free of tension and fear produce calm and gentle beings. Mothers and babies immediately bond, and the mental and emotional wellbeing of both is ensured.

Binge eating is an 'out of control' issue, and often goes hand in hand with feeling out of control in other ways. It may be linked with difficulty handling emotions, anxiety, depression, lack of self-esteem, or a need for comfort or reward. It can also be the result of extreme dieting. Self-starvation triggers the survival instinct; the body craves food so desperately that it eats without even thinking. The mind is literally shut out. Sufferers of binge eating disorder feel upset after a binge, and so the cycle restarts with self-recrimination, dieting, and then the binge.
