    About Tara

    Tara is a warm, empathetic and authentic counsellor registered with the Australian Counselling Association. She highly values the relationship with her clients, and Tara’s clients would describe her as engaging and relaxed.  She is passionate about working with people to achieve healthy and satisfying relationships and has more than 6 years’ experience working with individuals in crisis, families and couples.

    Tara works with couples using The Gottman method, Emotionally Focused Couple’s Therapy and Relational Life Therapy.  Furthermore, she draws upon narrative therapy, solution focused and interpersonal therapies models.

    Using an integrative approach Tara can tailor a therapeutic approach to suit her client’s needs.  She doesn’t subscribe to the notion that one gloves fits all and believes her client’s benefit from this individualised approach.

    Tara has a special interest in working with couples who are in crisis: struggling with issues of infidelity, conflict resolution and navigating parenthood.  In addition, Tara has completed specialised training to work with couple’s transitioning into parenthood for the first or subsequent times. Tara also works with couple’s in a proactive manner being relationship coaching or pre-marital therapy.

    Tara believes our important relationships shape the quality of our lives and her goal is always the same: to find ways to strengthen her client’s relationships.  Tara values her client’s input and prefers to work collaboratively with her clients to navigate a way forward.  She understands the benefit in her client’s being actively invested in the therapeutic process and taking charge of their lives and their important relationships.
