About me and my therapy practice
My name is Michelle Gunn and I offer a safe space for you to feel heard and listened to. I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor based in Taunton, Somerset. This means I have studied many different theories of therapy and counselling and can blend the right theory and practice to suit an individual’s needs, as everyone is different. Counselling offers a safe confidential space for you to talk, free of judgment and expectations.
Before qualifying as a Counsellor, I have spent the past 22 years working as a Veterinary nurse. This has given me a greater insight into love and loss. I am compassionate, warm and caring. I offer a space where joy can also be celebrated, I believe laughter is a great form of healing.
I blend together different theories and practice, which can help you focus on getting the most of our time together. Some people like to have activities to do between sessions, like journaling, others may have more of a creative mind and words do not form as easily as others. Whatever person you are, we can work together.
Creative work is very healing, some pictures really do say more than words. Being creative isn’t about being able to draw, it’s about expressing how feelings may look or feel if they could express themselves, and this can give a greater insight on areas which may be hidden.
My first session
I offer a free initial session over the telephone/online. This allows each of us to see if we are the right fit for your journey.
After that, sessions can begin weekly, I offer both short term and long term sessions. Face to face, online or over the telephone.
If you feel a one off session could help with your current situation, a 90 minute appointment can be made.
I am also happy to discuss concessions for those on low incomes.
