Tamara Vaughan Profile

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 facilitating therapeutic groups, offering specialist assessments and individual therapy sessions in the NHS, charity and private sector. At present, in addition to my private practice, I work as a Senior Counselling Psychologist in the NHS and as a Guest lecturer to a number of postgraduate programmes in London.

I am passionate about people’s mental health and well-being; whether that be working together to help you recover from psychological, emotional and relational difficulties or, ensuring that you are maintaining your general psychological well-being.

Tamara was an absolute pleasure to work with. I felt wholly supported by her throughout the process and she really helped me to develop emotional resilience. Thank you so much!


My Approach

For many of us, the decision to come to therapy can be a daunting one. Sometimes, we have been feeling overwhelmed, hopeless or distressed for a long time and although we think we know what the problem is, we are unsure about how to address it. Alternatively, we may have simply been living with a sense that something isn’t quite right and not know where to begin.


Whatever your reasons for coming to therapy, I will always offer a warm, nonjudgemental and compassionate therapeutic space in which you can talk about your experiences openly.

Additional Information

Sessions take place once weekly unless otherwise agreed upon. Our first session will be an assessment session and will act as an opportunity for me to gather some more information about you and what you're hoping to gain from therapy; it will also be a chance for us to make a decision about whether I am the right therapist for you.

Sessions are payable by BACS by the day of our appointment. I am also a registered member with a number of private medical insurers. If you wish to pay for your sessions in advance, I offer a 10% discount (on full rate sessions), when a block of six sessions is purchased.
