Tamara Howell Counselling & Therapy: Welcome

Tamara Howell PGDip, MSc
Counselling & Therapy

I trained to be a therapist at PROMIS Treatment Centre and The Priory Hospital North London while I attained my Master's degree.

I worked as a group therapist on a sessional basis at The Capio Nightingale Hospital and The Kairos Community Trust, a charity which supports vulnerable people in their recovery from addictive disorders. I opened my private practice at Kingyo Therapy whilst working as a counsellor and then Manager at The Kairos Aftercare Programme.

In 2011, I moved to France and opened a private practice in Paris, providing therapy in English to adolescents and adults in the Anglophone community. I have collaborated with excellent practitioners in Paris and London and continue to work closely with them.
