Tamara Howell Counselling & Therapy: Welcome

Tamara Howell PGDip, MSc
Counselling & Therapy

The foundation of my counselling approach is person-centred, empowering Clients to make the changes they hope for with support and guidance. I apply a variety of therapeutic models and skills from my training and experience according to each Client’s needs. Clients may have specific goals for which they require short-term therapy or wish to enter into on-going counselling to address broader issues.

I specialise in assisting Clients with the following concerns:

  • Alcohol and Drug Addictions
  • Anxiety, Depression, Mood disorders, Low Self Esteem
  • Cultural Adjustment, Identity, Reintegration
  • Eating Disorders, Body Image concerns
  • Premenstrual Syndrome, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
  • Relationship concerns, Sex and/or Love Addiction, Codependency
  • Work-related Stress


I develop comprehensive treatment plans with my Clients to support their mental, emotional and physical health. For some Clients, this can include working in conjunction with specialist practitioners including GPs, naturopaths, nutritionists, personal trainers, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, physical therapists, Reiki practitioners and life coaches.

I provide assessments and referrals to world-renowned inpatient treatment programmes for addictions, eating disorders, codependency and trauma, followed by continuous aftercare upon discharge. My recommendations include facilities in South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, U.K. and U.S.A. and are based on quality of care, suitability of the programme and geographical convenience for each Client.

In my experience, the effectiveness of therapy depends mostly upon a Client finding a counsellor with whom they feel comfortable. If you would like to try another therapeutic discipline, or would like to have therapy in another language, I will be pleased to refer you to someone suitable.
