Frances Tagg MA
Counselling & Psychotherapy in Stourbridge
I have been working in private practice since 2006 having gained my Diploma in Counselling and MA in Psychotherapy at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. My original trainings were in nursing, midwifery and social anthropology. Later, living in intentional communities with children and adults with special needs, I witnessed and experienced the deep benefits of working therapeutically with individuals and groups. This fuelled my belief that we cannot know ourselves without others and we cannot come into healthy relationship with others without coming into relationship with our Self. This therefore lies at the heart of the therapeutic relationship and forms the cornerstone for the work of uncovering buried and lost parts of ourselves, strengthening our sense of identity and unfolding our true Self.
In addition to my one-to-one work, I offer occasional mindfulness and meditation groups. I continue to develop and extend my practice through on going Professional Development, research and training. As an Anthroposophic Nurse Specialist I also run workshops and training courses on themes to do with Health, Development and Well-being.
My special interest in working with adults suffering emotional and relationship difficulties which stem from being sent away to boarding school at a young age has deepened my awareness of the field of relational trauma whatever the cause. I also have particular experience working with people living with life-limiting illnesses.
I am accredited through and registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Association of Psychospiritual Psychotherapists (APP) and work according to their Ethical Principles and Professional Code of Conduct.
