Tara is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years of experience of working with psychological difficulties. Whilst she has a background in a range of therapies (including CBT, CAT and DBT), she has increasingly specialised in Schema Therapy, having been trained by Jeffrey Young in New York, in 2008. In addition to offering individual therapy, she delivers training (in the UK and Poland) and supervision. Together with Dr Gill Heath, she co-authored the chapter on Schema Therapy in the The Handbook of Adult Clinical Psychology - An Evidence Based Practice Approach (Routledge, 2nd Edition, 2016, Edited by Alan Carr & Muirreann McNulty) and developed the Schema Therapy Toolkit video set, a Schema Therapy training resource. Tara has worked in a variety of settings. These include psychological therapy services, a depression research clinic and a personality disorders service. She has managed and developed services in Auckland and London, taught on UK Doctoral Clinical Psychology Programmes, served on New Zealand’s National Personality Disorders committee and has been an external assessor for the University of Middlesex, validating a Masters degree in Integrative Therapy. She now runs her own private practice in central London and Bedford. Here she helps her clients to make sense of and gain freedom from the difficulties that are holding them back in life. She is available to deliver Schema Therapy training in the UK and abroad, including through a translator.
