Henry Powell Counselling BSc Hons Dip HIC MBACP
Hi, I'm Henry and I am a fully qualified counsellor working in Taunton, Somerset. I provide a compassionate and confidential space for you to explore any aspect of your life. I charge £35 per session, with the first session being free, and I currently have evening sessions available.
I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues, including problems with anger, anxiety, bereavement, childhood, depression, families, affairs, fertility, miscarriage, abortion, post-natal depression, relationship issues, panic reactions, parenting, self-esteem, separation, sexuality and trauma.
I hold a post-graduate Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, a Certificate in Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling, and a Honours Degree in Psychology (joint). I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work within BACP's Ethical Framework.
Regarding my training, 'humanistic' refers to the value of every individual and the belief in their capacity to heal and grow. 'Integrative' means that I combine a number of different approaches. This includes helping you look at patterns in your feelings and thoughts, which may stem from the past and may be blocking you from living from your 'fullest self'. Research consistently shows that it is the client-counsellor relationship that has the largest impact on the effectiveness of any therapy. I therefore work with clients to form a collaborative working alliance and regularly review how they feel the therapy is going. We would take our sessions at a pace you feel comfortable with.
I offer a free initial consultation, which gives us a chance to discuss why you are seeking counselling, answer any questions you may have and decide whether we could work together. If you have any unanswered questions about counselling, please contact me by phone or email; I will always try to come back to you the same day.
