Wendy Tarr MBACP Registered
Move from anxiety, overwhelm and distress, towards hope, resilience and possibility.
I specialise in helping people with anxiety and those looking to gently recover from trauma. I also have considerable experience supporting others after a bereavment or loss. I have come to understand the immediate and long-lasting effects any kind of trauma can have on our physical and emotional well-being, as well as our minds, and I understand the significance of the connection between the mind, body and emotions when we are suffering, and indeed when we need to heal.
I am committed to recognising your unique needs, circumstances, difficulties and experiences. In fact it’s your unique perspective that will be fundamental to your healing and recovery.
I know that it can take time to feel safe enough and able to process everything you have been through. I will support you each step of the way, working sensitively and thoughtfully with anything you may need to talk about.
Your first appointment with me will include time dedicated to begin talking through your reasons for coming to counselling and discussing how we can work together. With the opportunity to ask any questions and voice any concerns you may have.
Please get in touch if you have any questions you would like to ask before you make an appointment with me. You can email me or call and leave a message and I will respond as quickly as possible.
