TAP is well known for the quality of the speakers who present to the ever growing audience of people interested in psychotherapy, counselling and emotional and physical health and well-being. From Counselling in the 21st century to past-life therapy; from homeopathy to neuroscience; working with children and adults, the LGBT communities and those bereaved - the range of subjects is wide and speakers expert. Our talks are attended by a wide variety of individuals including, social workers, teachers, counsellors, psychotherapists, nurses, clergy, doctors and people with a purely personal interest.
TAP believes that we have much to gain from sharing individual insights developed in a variety of settings. TAP offers an opening for people in the Taunton area to talk and hear about relevant material, theoretical and clinical. It also acts as a channel through which we can meet people from further afield whose ideas and work are of particular interest.
All talks are on Fridays at 7:45pm. Certificates for CPD are available.
Members of TAP can attend every talk free of charge, but non-members are very welcome. The charge at the door is £8 per person, £5 for the usual concessions (inc. students)
Reports on our talks and any handouts available will be uploaded to the BLOG page. Talks from previous years can be found on our Archives page.
The programme of TAP Talks 2018/19
The last TAP Talk of the season takes place on February 15th ‘19 when 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 2019/2020 Programme of Talks will be available shortly. Why not join TAP or sign up for our mailing list to get the information hot off the press? Email email@example.com or fill in the form on our Contact page.
