Charlotte Howard-Jones BA (Hons) AdvDip Counselling, Registered Member BACP
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor. This means that I draw upon a variety of psychological therapies to best assist the individuals I work with.Whether you're struggling with emotional experiences, feeling stuck or going through a period of change, therapy offers an opportunity to share your troubles without judgement or criticism. I have worked with a broad range of people with diverse issues and have had many years experience in the areas of loss and bereavement.
Loss can mean a variety of things:
Has someone close to you died? Has a relationship ended or changed? Have your children left home? Have you a sense of lost identity? Have you lost your way in life?
I view counselling as a completely confidential, non-judgemental relationship that will enable you to explore and work through your difficulties and issues.
I work within the ethical framework of the BACP and abide by the guidelines of this professional body in terms of ethical conduct. I have regular clinical supervision and engage in a wide range of continued professional development.
I am available in Taunton Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings.
Please call now for a confidential initial discussion.

Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
