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. Perhaps you want to attend some of our regular talks, find out more about our very popular annual conference, or discover new ways to network with peers and others interested in the wide range of topics we explore.

STOP PRESS! BOOKING NOW OPEN FOR TAP SPRING CONFERENCE MARCH 30th 2019 9.30am to 4.30pm John Henden and Dr Robert Sharpe on 'De-Mystifying Trauma'. (Note: Dr Frances Knight had to withdraw) See the TAP ANNUAL CONFERENCE page for full details and booking form.
The last TAP Talk of the 2018/19 season is here already! On February 15th 2019 we welcome JANE RENTON to speak on the subject 'Unlocking the secrets of dreams'. Jane has kindly stepped in to deliver the talk after Matthew Harwood pulled out with health issues.
"I had a strange dream..." Are these words of engagement or terror to a therapist? Using Gestalt and Internal Family Systems approaches Jane will introduce some ways of working with dreams. There may be a chance to try some of these techniques out and to explore how to extend dream work to enrich the therapeutic process.
Jane is a BACP accredited therapist and IFS therapist, currently writing about the use of nature in therapy.
THE 2019/20 TAP Talks Programme will be available shortly. Keep checking back for news, or better still join our mailing list!
