About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I’m Tamsin and I have 9 years of experience working as a counsellor in a school setting and privately. I support children and young people who are struggling with issues related to anxiety, low confidence, self esteem, friendship issues, stress related to school, grief, self harm, anger, identity, family breakdown and more. As well as talking therapy I also work creatively with the arts enabling clients to express their feelings in a safe, caring and confidential space. I believe that by building trust in the therapeutic relationship will allow children and young people to develop confidence in themselves and become more self aware.
I am also a qualified teen yoga teacher and feel passionate about helping young people connect with their bodies. The body can often hold onto trauma and manifest itself in a psychosomatic way and yoga can be a wonderful tool to help unravel these deep embodied sensations. So sometimes if appropriate, I use yoga techniques in my counselling sessions.
I offer short and long term therapy face to face and online.
I often use creative materials such as sand, art, figures, crafts and games along with mindfulness and yoga techniques.
I use attachment and neuroscience based approaches along with cognitive behaviour therapy.
My first session
If you would like to arrange a meeting please email me or call for more details.
When working with primary age children I invite parents for an initial consultation to discuss any issues and concerns and to explore the child's background.
For adolescents we will have an initial meeting to discuss what brings them to therapy and it is an opportunity for them to ask any questions they may have about the sessions.
If everyone is happy then we can set up weekly sessions on a suitable day.
