Counselling & Hypnotherapy

People come to Counselling for many reasons. Some may be finding it difficult to deal with a current problem, for example bullying at school or work or the impact of a child leaving home. Others may be affected by some past event that has surfaced and they wish to make some sense of it and sometimes people chose to come to counselling to find out more about themselves. Our team are here to help you face any situation.

Qualified counsellor Pauline Brown, experienced in trauma related issues, PTSD, general anxiety and depression, flexible hours available.

Margaret Capon Solution-focused Hypnotherapist DSFH

Why counselling?

Maybe life has always been a struggle: perhaps you have just hit a rough patch and need a helping hand: or maybe you feel you have no escape from old habits and old hurts, and long for something to change.

I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and safe place, where you can talk freely, explore what is troubling you, and work towards finding solutions; and I offer warmth, authenticity and empathy to support you, as a unique individual, as you look for a new way forward.

I have a particular interest in helping young people and their parents to navigate the choppy waters of twenty-first century life. However, all are welcome in the counselling room, regardless of race, creed, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation or lifestyle.

I have an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Iron Mill College in Exeter. I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and also a Registered Member of the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC).

I have additional training in emotion coaching: the lasting physical, psychological and emotional effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs); working with eating disorders; supporting bereaved children; and working with boarding school issues, both current and historic. I am also a qualified facilitator for the University of Melbourne’s Tuning into Teensparenting programme.

I currently work with teenagers in a local academy school, and also with parents of younger children at two primary schools in South Somerset.

    Solution Focused Hypnotherapy with Margaret Capon 'I sought help with the executive function issues associated with dyslexia, dyscalculia and possible ADHD in order to be in the best place to study for a professional qualification whilst working. I found the results of working with Margaret to be incredible. I can quantify how much my function has improved and how much better I am at dealing with distraction, mental blocks, prioritisation and meeting deadlines without drama. The focus I have been able to achieve without going into exhausting hyperfocus has been unprecedented and I've been able to meet some tough objectives but also remembered to take breaks. It has been a joy to work with a practitioner who has an understanding of empathy with the neurodiverse functioning mind. The positive effect on all aspects of life have been such a boost And have freed up time and mental capacity. A huge thank you! Very much appreciated and happy travels! NP

    I had my first experience of Acupuncture with Lisa for ongoing neck and shoulder pain. I had tried everything but after two sessions it went away completely. It was a very good experience. Lisa really tuned into my body and used a range of Chinese medicine techniques to investigate what I needed. I would definitely recommend this form of treatment. LS
