Hello, I’m Tamsin and I am the founder of Embleton Psychotherapy and the Music Industy Therapist Collective (MIT Collective). I’m an experienced BACP registered, insured psychotherapist working at an NHS hospital and in private practice in Angel, Islington. I am a regular contributor to articles for Metro as a psychotherapist.


In my private practice, I work with a broad client-base from all walks of life. My client’s are typically facing issues related to:


  • depression, anxiety and stress
  • grief, loss and bereavement
  • trauma, neglect, physical, sexual and mental abuse
  • identity, meaning and purpose
  • attachment, relationship and interpersonal issues
  • addiction (inc. food, sex, drugs, gambling, alcohol)
  • phobias
  • gender
  • sexuality
  • anger and emotional difficulties (including personality disorders such as anti-social personality disorder, schizo-affective disorder, complex PTSD, borderline personality disorder and dissociative disorders)

I have spent 10 years working in the music industry as an event booker, promoter and artist manager; experience which has provided valuable insight for working therapeutically with artists, music industry and creatives working in other fields. I’m currently researching the psychological impact of touring for musicians and hope to use this research to inform and support artists and their artists’ teams in preparing for the unique dynamics and challenges that face touring musicians (both on and off the road).

I also have extensive experience of working with new mothers (and their children) and within homeless shelters in London and Liverpool.
