16+ Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Hi. I'm John Speirs. I'm a senior accredited and registered counsellor - I support individuals and couples with their emotional wellbeing. I hold private sector experience as a counsellor. My focus involves depression, relationship problems and stress, and the particular problems faced by men, transgender people and women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment appointment enables you to discover if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what worries you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment meeting in Bridgwater, Yeovil or Taunton.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what matter regarding your childhood and/or adulthood you explore. The aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a problem and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Great listener. Twice helped with different issues that came up in my life. Once due to an alcohol problem following a break up with my ex partner and then again following a car crash I was involved in. After the crash I struggled to sleep properly."
