About me

Individuals & Couples


I am a kind, compassionate therapist who focuses primarily on the relationship between myself and my clients. I aim to support my client and help them to release their emotional pain by shedding light on their personal relationships, family history and daily struggles. Together, we can build your confidence so you can make the right decisions in your future by exploring and reflecting old patterns and repeats. I tailor my methods and ways of working to each client based on their individual needs and wishes.

Formerly, I was an interior designer so I can assure you that my therapy room promotes relaxation, peacefulness and reflection in a highly confidential and supportive space.

How to start our therapy:

Contact me by e-mailing: taracadoganwatson@gmail.com with your name, reasons for therapy and your availabilities.

I will endeavour to respond back to you within 24 hours.

Then, we can find a time to have our first session. In our first session we will talk about what you are needing from therapy, and it gives us a chance to get to know one another and to see what makes you, you.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

Working with couples:

I support couples at any stage of their relationship to improve communication or develop intimacy. Whether you are experiencing divorce, betrayals, sexual differences and difficulties I will facilitate these struggles with you in a balanced and constructive way. We will explore the impact of the issue and work out how to overcome these. We can do this by looking at all aspects of your life, and even your former life prior to meeting your partner. I see couples of every sexual and gender orientation.
