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. We hope that this website will offer you all the information you need.

OUR NEXT TAP TALK - January 18th 2019 OLIVIA ROWLATT will talk on the subject 'Having conversations about sex..'
What happens when sex is talked about in a therapeutic situation? Understanding what happens when sex is talked about allows the subject to be explored within counselling professions. How do those conversations fit into counselling and psychotherapy? What are the different things that can happen when talking about sex in the therapeutic setting? What is erotic transference? What aspects of ethical frameworks are relevant when talking about sex in a therapeutic situation? This talk will consider these questions. Olivia is a relationship counsellor and sex therapist. She has a post-graduate Diploma in Sex and Relationship Therapy difficulties and is an accredited member of the College of Sex and Relationship Therapists.
