Founded more than 30 years ago now, TAP (Taunton Association for Psychotherapy) offers an annual programme of diverse and stimulating evening talks given by people from a wide professional and geographical field on the theme of psychological understanding. TAP provides a forum for professional and interested lay people to achieve a deeper understanding of the human psyche through a psychotherapeutic approach.
