Taking back control with courage and compassion

  • Do you feel overwhelmed with anxiety?
  • Do you avoid doing things?
  • Perhaps your inner critic is loud and you are unkind to yourself.
  • Maybe you have spiralling mind loops of “what ifs” and catastrophising thoughts?

What if you could be free from anxiety and problems that are keeping you stuck?

I help you to explore triggers, and make connections from past to current behaviours. To have a better understanding of why things are the way they are and how they are not your fault. I can help you to regain confidence and motivation with a vision and future goals. 

Anxiety can be a sacry and lonely place. I help you to feel supported every step of the way, teaching you to feel safe and grounded and how to use new skills in your every day life.

A bit about Me

I’m Tamara and welcome to my practice. I’m a registered and accredited psychotherapeutic Integrative counsellor working with adults and teenagers that want to understand, explore and find solutions to their problems that are making them anxious, stuck and stressed. I have had many years of experience, including school counselling for ages 7-17, working for the NHS Youth Counselling service part of CAMHS and helping to run their early help hub and also another large NHS commisioned young people’s organisation and private practice. I see people either online or face2face and for long or short term work. 

My professional practice overflows with compassion and kindness, as we work together building trust to enhance personal growth, confidence and self esteem. My Therapy rooms are based in Cranleigh (20 minutes from Guildford, horsham and dorking) and Guildford Surrey and I also work across the UK online.

Life’s problems can cause you to feel numb and isolated from the rest of the world, like being under a rain cloud that doesn’t disperse, filling us with dread, causing fatigue, confusion and fear. Well, the cloud can disperse and you can enjoy life again.

"Tamara was a pleasure to work with to help me get through some of my mental health issues. She makes you feel at ease from the minute you walk through the door and each session passed so quickly it was unbelievable, never felt long enough to be honest.

Her advice and help over the 3 months I’ve seen her has really helped me reframe and be more positive to situations and has helped me understand why I think and react the way I do to them.

I will be going back to her again should the need arise".

Highly recommended.


"Tamara has really helped me when I was not in a good place. Highly recommended."


"I really enjoy our sessions and feel able to be open about everything. I have been working with Tamara for over a year now and have really benefitted from our sessions. I am able, to be honest, and open without fear of judgement. This is the first time I’ve ever done counselling and have also recommended Tamara to someone else. Thank you, Tamara!"


"My sessions with Tam were so valuable, helping me develop insights and skills that allow me to be kinder to myself as well as more curious. I now have so many more resources and reserves to deal with life’s challenges and anxieties that all things feel possible again.”


“Highly, highly recommend Tam at Time4Talking. She was, without question, the catalyst for me moving into a healthier and happier place. I truly appreciated her unfailingly kind and perceptive questioning, gentle challenges to keep exploring and endlessly wise counsel.“
