Hi, I'm Katie and I appreciate you stopping by my profile. I bring warmth, positivity and my sense of humour to the therapeutic relationships that I form with clients. It takes courage to decide to enter therapy and together we will find what helps you the most. The areas that I offer the most support with are anxiety, low self esteem and depression. I offer a free initial discussion because it gives you the opportunity to see if you think we are a good fit. Part of the therapeutic process is the relationship that we build and therefore it is important that you feel safe, heard and accepted.

I specialise in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) along side other integrative therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness and hypnotherapy. The framework my approach is built on is REBT, yet as each of us are different, I integrate the other therapies to suit each individual. Some clients benefit more from rationalising thoughts and beliefs, while some need help getting over the past, and some need help with moving forward. I work with my clients to address issues, create and reach goals, and make the most of life.

I work with clients that primarily struggle with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) symptoms and anxiety disorders. My clients experience contamination, responsibility, religious/scrupulosity, relationship, health, symmetry, and 'Pure O' OCD symptoms. I offer formal assessments, treatment proposals, and I regularly educate and support clients to learn specialist skills, tools and techniques to successfully manage their OCD. This includes learning to diffuse from and accept unwanted thoughts, resist the urge to perform compulsions, and improve self-esteem. I am experienced working with mild, moderate, or severe OCD.

Hi, I'm Jo and thank you for taking the time to stop by my profile. So you've decided to take what feels like a scary yet very important step towards making a difference in your life and are looking for the right help with this - yes? Finding a safe, trustworthy and comfortable place is so important when it comes to therapy and I strive to offer this, either in my therapy room, via video link or over the phone, so that you can get help where ever you are. I'm trained in a variety of Counselling Theories so we can make the therapy fit you, rather than to try to fit you in to a 'therapy box' of one theory fits all.

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. Life can be stressful, challenging and overwhelming.

I work with teenagers and adults who struggle with anxiety, anger, depression, loss, trauma and many other common causes of poor mental health. Talking about your experience in a confidential therapeutic space, can help you to better understand what is going on for you, empowering you to make positive changes to promote your well-being. Using a range of therapeutic techniques, my practice is informed by the needs of the individual client. My primary approach is TA which can help with communication and behaviour by understanding the Self, and thus improving interpersonal relationships and self-esteem.

My ideal client is one of complexity; I plan on to enrol onto a Doctorate becoming a counselling psychologist. I am a qualified counsellor and my knowledge base started 15 years ago when I fell ill. I have had an eventful life, including heart problems, strokes and many other issues. Through therapies, self help and determination I am happy with my life and I would love to share my knowledge. I have specialised in complex bereavement over the past 6 years seeing clients face to face and supporting them through the hard times. There is a need for more LGBT counsellors that understand and help.

Life can often feel challenging and even overwhelming at times. The therapeutic relationship between therapist and client, once formed is a safe, warm, non judgmental space that will allow the client to explore their worries and make sense of your feelings.

I believe that everyone deserves to have the knowledge and skills to improve their mental health, quality of life, and their relationships. It can take a great deal of courage to see a counsellor, so my aim is to offer you a confidential and safe space where you can feel listened to, without judgment, to help you explore your thoughts and feelings. You may be feeling sad, low, or anxious because of a particular issue, or it could be that you don't know why you are feeling as you do.

Hello and a warm welcome. I am interested to hear what brings you to counselling. I will offer you a safe space to share your story and to feel listen to. A space where you feel able to say how it is and you feel understood without being judged. I will be genuine and together we can explore your experiences in our sessions. I believe in humans' abilities to change, to grow and to heal and I feel positive that counselling can facilitate this.

What is going on for you? Where are you “stuck”? Maybe you are looking for somewhere to go to talk things through. Maybe you’re wondering why you can’t get past something that keeps coming up. You may be feeling restless, sad, frustrated or anxious. Working together, we will explore your unique life experiences to help you understand more about your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships. I am trained as an integrative therapist; this means I can draw on a range of humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive theories tailored to your individual needs, creating a bespoke therapeutic experience.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I work with individuals with a range of difficulties who want to improve their lives. Clients I see struggle with attachment trauma, anxiety, depression, somatic symptoms and self-criticism. They often feel drained, have little energy, live with pain, gastrointestinal complaints, and PTSD symptoms. For many, relationships are challenging, and trusting others to access help is a struggle. Through our work together, we develop greater awareness of how they relate to others in intimate relationships, and the impact this has on their body and mind, which helps them to relate to themselves differently too.

I am an accredited psychotherapist & counsellor offering support to adults, couples & young people 16+. How we relate to ourselves and to others impacts our mood, our confidence, our outlook and self-esteem. I work to shed light on how our relationships shape us, and how we can get stuck repeating patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us. Symptoms such as anxiety, OCD and depression thrive when we get into a vicious cycle of relating ineffectively. Counselling gives us a safe space to reflect and explore what has happened to us. It can free us up to think and feel differently about our lives, our choices, our way forward.

As well as online video apps, I work face to face with adults, young people (11+) and couples. Sometimes friends or family are unable to support you so an impartial professional can really help. Powerlessness, change, loneliness, grief and anxiety are just a few of the overwhelming feelings many are experiencing. There is no need to be alone in this. Call for a chat to see if, together, we can find a way forward.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Taunton?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Taunton specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
