Dr Tara Quinn-Cirillo (CPsychol, AFBPsS)

Welcome to my website. I am Dr Tara Quinn-Cirillo and I am a Chartered and HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist and Associate Fellow of The British Psychological Society.  I have  many years of experience in helping people managing their emotional wellbeing. I am passionate about helping people to formulate their presenting difficulties and develop strategies to achieve and maintain their wellbeing goals. I draw upon over 20 years of clinical experience and knowledge of human behaviour, mental health and disability psychology. I offer individual assessment and treatment in my private clinic. I pride myself on my combination of compassionate and evidenced based practice. I want to empower people to create a core shift in managing the difficulties they face.

I have a special interest in bringing the principles of psychology to communities to help them cope with adversity and support each other with mental wellbeing. Showing compassion to one another is a huge part of helping communities function in a positive way and is also evidenced to enhance our overall wellbeing. I achieve this through my media work and community projects that I run through a variety of platforms. I regularly appear in a variety of media outlets including TV and Radio. I am honoured to be a regular guest on BBC TV,  BBC World Service Radio on the Outside Source programme with Nuala McGovern, discussing psychological aspects of current world events. I am also proud to be a regular guest on BBC Radio 5 live, including with Colin Murray on the Midnight Medic.  I am also proud to be a regular guest on BBC Radio London and BBC Radio Sussex. These platforms allow me to be able to share psychological principles to help people understand the psychology of human behaviour and the world around them and to understand and manage their emotional wellbeing. I am a regular contributor to many media articles and platforms including The Telegraph and The Huffington Post . Please see my media section for further details.

I am proud to be collaborating with some amazing projects, organisations and charities, with the aim of enhancing emotional wellbeing in a variety of areas and creating change using evidenced based approaches. Collaborating enables me to reach a wider audience and enhance the wellbeing of more individuals than just in my private practice alone.

I also run a number of wellbeing projects in my local community and I am proud to be able to bring my psychological skills to those in need in the community in a purely charitable format. 

I look forward to hearing from you either for individual psychological consultation and treatment, consultancy work including organisations, collaboration on projects with other professionals and organisations, training or media consultancy. Please see my ‘contact’ page for details on how to contact me.

If you are interested in being involved in any of my community projects please feel free to contact me too!
