I'm in your corner
Do you ever feel like you want someone who is totally on your side, shares your vision and values and wants the best for you? Someone warm and friendly but also focused and professional?
For years, I lamented to anyone who would listen that I just wanted “someone in my corner”, someone who gets me and can listen to me and help me organise my brain and heart.
It makes SUCH huge difference to have someone believe in us, right?!
THE PRACTICE POD
Small group coaching
The Practice Pod is the coaching arm of my professional projects, where I get to support therapists in a small group format. We are currently in session and the next round will begin in January 2022.
The 2022 group will be limited to eight and will meet on Zoom twice monthly calls for nine months. We keep a voice and text chat group open between calls for support, motivation and sharing resources.
The group has evolved to focus on professional and personal development with collaboration, trust and sustainability at the heart of our intentions.
Your personal pod
Your Personal Pod is your individual one to one time with me, where we work on designing and implementing actionable steps towards the work week and lifestyle you want to live.
We invest in crafting a collaborative rhythm, through my onboarding process where I get to know you and your values and spend time combing through the professional ideas you share with me. My pre-session update form creates space for reflection, continuity and intentional focus for our time together and between sessions access via voice note and text means you have me on hand to answer any questions and share my experience continuously.

LOVELY WORDS FROM LOVELY THERAPISTS

Working with Tamara allows me to understand better how I can move forward with my practice and make it my own. She takes the unique experiences of each participant in the group and uses them to synthesize meaning and purpose. The creative exercises are fun, and also relevant to giving us more insight into how we see ourselves in our private practice.
Working with Tamara is incredibly affirming. She works immensely hard behind the scenes on all her offerings to provide accepting and safe environments full of potential for growth and connection. She is generous with her knowledge and her time - I would highly recommend her coaching pods as well as the other training and courses she produces.
Working with Tamara is a like a burst of sunshine, she is full of energy, enthusiasm and most of all a wealth of wisdom and confidence. Tamara is the advocate that everyone needs in their corner, her support and belief in me has given me immense confidence to run a group. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tamara.
Together, we shift emotional blocks with curiosity and care, and approach Imposter Syndrome side by side.
THE MENTAL LOAD
We identify your private practice vision from a heart centre and redistribute the mental load.
PRIVATE PRACTICE SET UP
We navigate the administrative steps of setting up or overhauling your private practice.
We research international legal and professional regulations, assess risk and prepare safety procedures.
We define policies and procedures that support you and your clients whilst protecting your practice.
We edit website copy and directory listings to reflect your niche and design a congruent marketing plan.
We calculate fees and plan a sustainable financial framework that provides holidays and pensions.
All the messy stuff that we usually need a bit of support with, those are my favourite activities to collaborate on.
Working with Tamara is easy !
She is engaging and driven and very supportive. Her knowledge and passion for helping colleagues to develop further is really stimulating.

YOUR COACHING INVESTMENT
You know when you finally find a coach and can't find their fee? It's happened to me so many times. I know the value of transparency in our field of work and so here are the numbers for you. It's not the whole story of course, because we can't know the impact on our income and personal growth just from a figure.
I have spent £500 for a one hour coaching session, £600 on a three hour deep dive (several times actually!), hundreds on coaching groups and masterminds AND £4,000+ on a six month group programme in 2020.
I learned the value of coaching at the start of my new practice, 10 years into my journey in this field when I returned after maternity leave.
I had one client, hired an incredible coach and had 12 clients three months later and raised my fee.
My coach didn't promise me those results, but she walked with me step by step... and still supports me to this day.
That's what coaching is for me, and I hope to be that person for you too.

Tamara is a hugely generous and creative enabler and coach. I valued the way she engaged us as a group, building a safe and supportive environment to explore our ideas together. She skillfully held and encouraged us as individuals, giving bespoke guidance and encouragement whilst responding to the group dynamic and weaving in a relevant theme each session. I learnt so much from my time with her and am incredibly grateful for the opportunity it gave me to personally reflect and develop.
INTENTIONAL ATTENTIONAL LIMITS
Part of promising to be present means noticing how much space I have in my head and heart. I work with a maximum of four individual coaching clients at a time so that I know I can return messages, read, think and accommodate schedules.
REJECT ACHIEVEMENT CULTURE
I don't incorporate "goals" because I believe the language around goal setting can perpetuate achievement culture, expectation and ultimately Imposter Syndrome. Instead we commit to mutual trust, openness and intentional collaboration.
CONTINUITY & COLLABORATION
All coaching clients have voice or text note connection with me between the first and final sessions. I read updates, check out your website and keep you in mind.
SUPPORTIVE SCHEDULING POLICY
I ask for 48 hours' notice to cancel or move appointment but if you need to move our meeting at late notice, I don't charge cancellation fees. I try to offer as much flexibility as possible.
I’d love to hear from you...
