About Me


Tara Gallagher

I am an Accredited Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a Graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), and a Europe Accredited EMDR Practitioner. I also hold a certificate in Couple / Relationship therapy.

Following the accomplishment of a first class Master's Degree in Psychology in 2009, I have gained wide-ranging experience in many areas including working with Trauma, Depression, Anxiety and Relational Issues. I am experienced in both short-term solution-focused therapy and long-term work, including seeing clients within an NHS setting and MIND counselling services.

I specialise in Integrative Counselling. However, I emphasize on Psychodynamic intervention and childhood experience in my work. For more information please see here.

In addition, I use a relatively new branch of counselling known as Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). I find EMDR the most effective treatment for trauma. For more information please see here

Tara has been instrumental in one of the greatest shifts in my life. She has guided me with such grace & compassion through the process of EMDR & together we have processed my deepest wounds. Her capacity to read my emotions & support me through the therapy is unparalleled. I always feel safe & seen, and able to reveal myself fully in a held space. A truly wonderful therapist & a very special human being "
