Dr Tamara Vaughan
Dr Tamara Vaughan is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with several years’ experience offering individual and group therapy sessions in the private sector, the NHS, charities and community-based settings. Tamara understands that, for many, the decision to come to therapy can be a daunting one, she therefore aims to offer a non-judgemental and compassionate space in which each individual can talk about their experiences openly. Tamara has extensive experience working with a range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, personality/identity issues and stress & anger management. She is highly skilled in delivering psychodynamic, person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapies individually or integratively, to respond effectively to these difficulties. Tamara works collaboratively to ensure that each client’s needs and goals are always being met and, so that they feel genuinely heard and empowered throughout the process.
Prior to qualifying as a psychologist, Tamara worked with children and families in school and community settings; and with adolescents and adults in mental health services. This work caused Tamara to develop an interest in the difficulties that individuals experience at different stages in their lives and, in particular, the difficulties and traumas which can be experienced within close relationships. Coming from the Caribbean and having lived in a number of countries, Tamara is also passionate about intercultural and minority ethnic group experiences and the way that these influence people’s identities and sense of self.
Tamara holds professional registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and British Psychological Society (BPS). She completed a professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (PsychD) at the University of Roehampton and an undergraduate degree in Psychology at the Sussex University. In addition to her private practice, Tamara works in the NHS providing therapy to individuals with complex and enduring needs, she is also a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Roehampton.
