a bit about tamara

Through my deeply self affirming programme Learn to Love Online Therapy, thoughtful Facebook Group, vulnerable newsletters and standard-setting Private Practice Paperwork templates, my support has given  peace of mind  and confidence to thousands (literally thousands of people have taken my courses!) of therapeutic professionals.


My philosophy is that by moving away from overthinking and into systematic action with systemic support frameworks, even the newest therapists can avoid burnout and Imposter Syndrome... and instead craft a private practice that fulfils your professional soul.

ME & PAPERWORK

My passion for paperwork stems from my career as a Lloyds broker... it wasn't the right industry for me for many reasons, but my time working in that world instilled a systematic and focused approach to compliance procedures and documentation.

When I reopened my practice after maternity leave, I overhauled my policies. I streamlined procedures, used online scheduling and billing, and I read 500+ pages of ethical guidelines. I wanted to ensure my practice was highly professional, and I wanted to provide clients with a safe and smooth entry into the world of therapy.

Once a few colleagues asked for copies, I thought I would get a lawyer to check them over, and recoup the costs afterwards by selling them. And so Private Practice Paperwork began, and now hundreds of therapists are out there providing ethical and professional paperwork to their clients in private practice!

ME & ONLINE THERAPY

If you haven't heard already, I love online therapy!

I used to really dislike it, and through a combination of professional support from my supervisor, experiential training and an incredible coach, I have grown to love it. It allows me to be the best therapist I can be, and provide excellent, consistent and focused therapy to my clients.

I have a full private pay practice and although I'm based in London, I work between several countries and with clients internationally, depending on local professional regulations of course!

Private Practice Paperwork

Saving you  hours of research, giving you  peace of mind

Therapists often find me when setting up private practice and can’t face the 30 or 40… or even 50 hours on reading, researching and formatting private practice policies.

They want to make sure their  i's are dotted and   t's are crossed.

Luckily, I love paperwork. No, really! I'm a policies and procedures geek with a professional background in insurance and compliance.

I did the work for you, so you can focus on being in session with your clients.

Working with Tamara is...

I just started a new blog...

Professional experience - Personal discovery - Actionable Insights

Are you hoping for a blog that resonates, provides useful accurate information and can improve your professional self care?

An audio version means you can listen and  get other stuff done at the same time, go for a walk, cook, draw peacefully in a cosy cardigan...

My newsletter and blog have earned hundreds of personal responses from followers building private therapy practices, and this is my favourite bit of having a website and blog.
