Hello, my name’s Tamsin and I’m a psychotherapist.


I work with a small number of clients, on a long term basis, either in person from my office behind Oxford Circus, or online over Zoom. I specialise in working with creatives, performers and people in high pressure positions such as being in the public eye.


Much of my work so far has been with musicians, producers, tour and production managers, record label managers, agents, promoters, A&Rs, actors, artists, film directors, fashion designers, creative directors, and journalists.


Some of the issues that my clients face include:


  • relationship, attachment and interpersonal issues
  • depression, anger and emotional difficulties
  • identity, meaning and purpose
  • anxiety, phobias and panic
  • stress and burnout
  • grief, loss and bereavement
  • addictions (food, legal and illegal drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex etc)
  • trauma, neglect, physical, sexual and mental abuse
  • issues with creativity (feeling blocked, creative collaboration etc)
  • sexual and gender expression
  • receiving a clinical diagnosis



Prior to training as a psychotherapist, I worked in the music industry as a festival, venue & club booker, and artist manager amongst other things. In 2023, I released my first (and likely only) book – Touring & Mental Health: The Music Industry Manual (published by Omnibus Press). Sometimes I contribute to press articles and talk at music industry conferences. You can read more about that on the press page.


In 2018, I founded a group called the Music Industry Therapist Collective (MITC). We are a global group of specialist psychotherapists, psychologists and medical professionals all of whom have worked in the music business extensively prior to retraining. We write publications, offer individual and group psychotherapy, and write seminars and workshops for the music business. We also run backstage services and consultations for tours, companies and charities in entertainment. We have therapists based across the US, UK and EU.
