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.
Our next TAP Talk The next TAP Talk takes place on September 15th 2017:
CATHY TOWERS will speak on the subject 'Filthy Lucre - Therapists' Relationship with Money'.
From Freud's obsession with his poorhouse neurosis to the modern 'heart-centred business' obsession with 6 figure incomes, therapists' relationship with money has been fraught with taboos, guilt and anxiety. Money has been described as "a screen onto which almost any psychological issue can be projected and a magnet which attracts all sorts of emotional concerns". This talk explores some background to financial exchange and exploration of charging for your time (whether in private practice or voluntary sector).
Cathy has 30 years as a therapist in private practice, runs workshops, and teaches and coaches on speaking in public.
