Counselling and Psychotherapy in Taunton, Somerset

Welcome to Taunton Gate Counselling (TCS)

The Taunton Counselling Service, was started in 2010 to provide affordable counselling serving Taunton and surrounding areas of Somerset. It is based on and was supported in its creation by the well established Palace Gate Counselling Service (PGCS) in Exeter. PGCS has been providing high quality, affordable counselling / psychotherapy in Exeter since 1994. TCS is however completely independent of PGCS. The majority of our clients are recommended by their GP's and many other angencies in the area recommend us, but you don't need a referral from someone else to come.

If you are looking at this Website you will almost certainly have some idea that counselling / therapy may be able to help you. We hope these pages will provide some of the information you are looking for and understand why so many people turn to TCS for that help.

Is this for me?

We can feel very anxious about making an appointment for counselling.

Home. Thoughts about not getting help

These and so many similar thoughts can stop us getting the help we need to improve our life in significant ways.

All counsellors at TCS are trained professionals, all have received counselling themselves and none will judge you. Our aim is always to treat people with the utmost respect and consideration from the second you reach our door. A special quality of relationship will form the basis of your work with a counsellor and that will be offered in a safe and confidential space.
