Juliet Edwardson, MA, BSc, MBACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Taunton Acupuncture Centre
3 The Parade
There are times in life when we can feel overwhelmed, confused and alone with our problems. Counselling offers an opportunity to talk through your concerns and feelings in a safe, confidential, caring and non-judgmental relationship. With over 20 years experience both nationally and internationally, Juliet works with adults, children, teenagers and couples.
A recent client offered this feedback of her experience: "Juliet has literally changed my life. After a lifelong fear of flying I never thought at the age of 50 this was something I would be able to overcome. Working together through the anxieties, after only a few sessions I was able to take control and successfully made my first flight within three months. It has opened up so many new horizons for me and I would wholeheartedly recommend Juliet to anyone."
The first meeting offers the chance to see if this would be a good place for you. Juliet gives the option of a free appointment for you to meet her 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.
Juliet uses offices in Taunton, Minehead, and Dulverton. She works with all age groups from children as young as two, through teenage years to adults in short term counselling or longer term psychotherapy. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is available as is couple counselling.
Please feel free to talk to her if you have any questions or concerns which need clarifying.
