About me and my therapy practice

About me

Hello, my name is Tamar Challis (this is pronounced tay-maar, for those who get anxious about unusual names). I am a qualified and BACP registered Person-Centred Counsellor.

I offer you a safe space to explore any concerns or issues you may be experiencing to find your way forward.

I am passionate and professional about the counselling I provide and adhere to BACP ethical guidelines within my practice.

The areas I specialise in include, but are not limited to; anxiety, depression, dissociative identity disorder, low self-esteem, trauma, pregnancy and infant loss and bereavement, self-development and relationships. I am interested in working with life transitions, such as menopause, new parents and retirement.


I provide an initial session in which your concerns/issues can be discussed and explored and where we can see if we have a rapport. You are under no obligation to continue after the initial session if you feel we are not a good match. Counselling is as much about the relationship as it is about the work we do together.

Sessions: £50 per 50 minute session. 

A concessionary rate of £40 is also available, depending on your circumstances.

Appointments are weekly, although I also have a limited number of monthly appointments available.

Please contact me for further details.
