Juliet Edwardson, MA, BSc, MBACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Taunton Acupuncture Centre
3 The Parade
With over 20 years experience both nationally and internationally, I work with adults, children, teenagers and couples within a safe, confidential and accepting relationship.
I have a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology and a BSc in Psychology. My experience extends to working with people going through anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues or relationship difficulties, grief and loss, relationship break-ups, life transitions, eating disorders, cutting and self-harm, suicidal thinking, identity problems, addictive behaviours, trauma and histories of abuse and many more concerns. I would be glad to meet with you and see how we might be able to work together successfully.
On the first meeting we have a chance to see if this would be a good place for you working with me. I can offer the option of a free appointment for you to meet me and talk through what you would like to get out of counselling. Most people find that once they have taken that initial step of coming for the first appointment that they are more ready to move forward with the counselling relationship.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is available as is couple as well as individual counselling. I also provide telephone and online video counselling usually via Skype or Facebook.

I trained at a treatment centre which specialised in helping adults, teenagers and children who had experienced traumatic abuse including sexual, domestic, physical, spiritual and verbal abuse. Using play and group therapy with traumatised children.
I spent many years working in academic environments helping people whose struggles were impacting their ability to succeed both personally and professionally.
My experience also includes community work with people who are adjusting to life after a "breakdown" and may have been hospitalised, during a period of unemployment or significant health problems.
Having practised abroad for a few years, I became licensed in America where I also taught seminars on issues such as eating disorders, addictive behaviours, depression and suicide. I have worked with cross-cultural transition and the different ways people of different cultures experience their emotions.
