I'm an integrative, person-centred, trauma-informed counsellor, with experience in working with clients from a wide range of backgrounds, who are looking for someone who they can talk to in a non-judgemental, confidential space. You may want space to talk about presenting issues, or help to explore how you're impacted by issues faced, and find best-fitting solutions through talking it over. Working empathetically and treating clients as unique individuals, I can offer creative, or mindful strategies, using psycho-education, as a way of helping to understand how the body responds to stress and trauma and how symptoms can be overcome.
Clinical psychologist with 20+ years experience in the mental health field. I offer assessment and formulation sessions as well as therapy sessions. In my view, the goal of therapy is not to find a "fix" or a speedy solution, but rather to help you explore and understand what has brought you to this point, what is keeping the difficulties going and what would help you to move forward and continue to move forward towards a place of good mental health. I am a specialist in anxiety and trauma (including social anxiety, OCD and PTSD) but work with people experiencing a range of struggles impacting their mental health.
Are you looking for an experienced counsellor for yourself, a child or young person? If so I can offer a supportive space in central Cirencester or Stroud to work through issues that are keeping you stuck and help you to move forward.
I am a fully qualified Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor. I work with adults, young people and children suffering emotional turmoil in their lives. Most of us at some point in our lives experience feelings and emotions that we can’t make sense of. These emotions can be brought about by a crisis, long term situation, persistent unhappiness, depression, apathy or difficulties in relating to others. I also specialise in sexual identity, lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender issues. I listen with understanding, without judgement and help and assist my clients to discover their true self.
Thank you for looking at my profile. The world can feel like a very complicated place, and anxiety- from many causes- can be overwhelming. As a counsellor, my aim is to listen to you, the client, hear what you say, accompany you and provide a secure space to explore emotions and conditions that may be troubling or bewildering, or both. Gently, at your own pace, we can go wherever you might need to go. I will support you as we work together, helping you to make sense of your journey.

I can offer you a calm, warm, compassionate and caring space where you can explore whatever is causing you distress and having a negative impact on your life.

Life can be difficult at times. We can feel depressed, anxious, stressed, worried or unable to cope. This can impact on all aspects of our lives; personal and professional. Sometimes all a client needs is someone to really listen to them and to accept what they are saying in a non-judgemental way. Therapy comes in all different shapes and sizes and I believe the mode of therapy should fit the client, we are all individuals after all. I put you, the client at the centre of the work and believe that together we can work collaboratively to help you mange your life more happily and successfully.
“I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become” Carl Gustav Jung. My name is Tamsin. I have worked as a Counsellor for 9 years with both young people and adults. I see each client as individual and unique, each with their own set of histories, life experiences and journeys. I believe that we all ultimately hold the strength and resilience within us to shape the person we want to become and lead the life we want to.
We all respond differently to the pressures and changes- you may be swinging from one emotion to another, or feeling numb and tired, or just can't think straight... We are all doing our best to cope, but maybe your normal ways of coping aren't working well enough at the moment? Or maybe you have turned to ways of coping that are unhelpful- like drinking too much ? I can help you find your feet and see what is important for you right now. I know how important it is to find a breathing space to process what is happening when you are living with chaos and uncertainty
I take a non-judgemental attitude to mental health and treat everyone as equals. When we work together, we’re in this together. I value the trust you’re placing in me and will do everything I can to earn that trust with valuable insights, an empathic heart, and a compassionate approach to the realities of life.
Life can be overwhelming sometimes. Most people have experienced anxiety, stress or low moods at some point and often try to struggle through alone. Seeking professional help can feel daunting and takes courage to make that first call. I work with genuine care and empathy and offer a warm, safe, non-judgemental environment for you to explore what's troubling you with complete confidentiality.

I have worked for over 15 years as a body-oriented psychotherapist, specialising in prenatal & birth/ attachment issues, sexual trauma, life transitions & crisis. I am also a TRE (Tension Releasing Exercises) provider, to support the release of stress from the body/ mind. More recently I have trained to work with women of all ages & life stages around menstrual cycle awareness, the menopause passage & after & I am currently training as a women's transformational coach & facilitator. I feel passionately about supporting women to step into greater self-love, empowerment & fulfillment in all areas of their life.
After fostering for some 11 years, I subsequently began training and provided counselling within my local mainstream College, in addition to a Special Educational Needs School, working alongside Young people with Complex needs such as Asperger’s Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD) and Autism. I am privileged to have gained a great insight into the challenging issues that affect the lives of families today, either from the young person’s perspective or parent/carer. I have grown confident supporting both Adults and Young People navigate the difficulties that too often we face alone.
Are you considering counselling and wondering how it would help? Here are just some of the things counselling could help you achieve: You can get some extra support from a trained professional when life seems too difficult to bear alone. You can make sense of your feelings and thoughts about a sensitive subject in a confidential environment. You can explore a complicated problem and come out with clarity about what you want and what you need. You can come to terms with your childhood or other past events that won’t seem to go away. You can make sense of your past and current patterns and change behaviours that no longer serve you.
Life can often be seen that we put the needs of others' before our own, therefore neglecting ourselves and experiencing difficult environments and emotions. I offer time for 'you' to explore your own needs and provide this by short or long term therapy, based on your emotional needs. As an integrative therapist, I invite clients to experience different ways of exploring personal experiences and create positive change to the challenges that are faced. The therapy I offer is a process that helps you restore your natural sense of harmony and balance.
I have more than 25 years' experience of working as a Clinical Psychologist and I have worked in both NHS and private practice settings. My work is with adults with a broad range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and loss, as well as with individuals who want to make changes to the way they deal with their lives in order to improve their overall sense of well-being.
