About me and my therapy practice

Hello and Welcome.

My name is Dawn. I'm an experienced Integrative Trauma Informed Counsellor & Psychotherapist. I'm an accredited member of the BACP and an accredited professional registrant with the NCPS.

I offer a safe space for you to come and be as you are.

Its not always easy to take the first step and reach out for help. My warm and caring approach will be the support that you need to help you on your journey and bring about the changes you want to see in your life. 

I offer a warm therapeutic space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences in a safe, compassionate environment. My approach is inclusive, neuro-affirming and centred around individuality. 

As a therapist I have a specialist interest in trauma recovery, where I practise using a trauma informed approach. I integrate different trauma techniques, focusing on different paths for recovery working with both the body and mind.

I am here to support you in finding your way home to yourself.

How I can help you

I will support you to explore your feelings and difficulties. I will listen to you to understand who you are as a person and the things that you want from life. Together we can work on change in a safe environment that will allow you to bring all versions of yourself without the fear of being judged.

Talking in a safe space filled with warmth, empathy and compassion, you will feel held, supported and accepted for who you are.

I will help you to explore ways to move forward, finding practical steps to take control of your difficulties. We will look at building coping mechanisms and stronger resilience to overcome any obstacles and challenges. This will help you to make positive changes, gain new perspectives and a deeper understanding of yourself, enabling you to reach your goals, heal and live the life you deserve.

Practice description

My style is warm, friendly and allows laughter and celebration. I have a relaxed approach, where I work in a very open and transparent way. Together we will celebrate your progress, no matter how big or small this may feel. I offer a service that fosters feelings of empowerment and hope.

My favourite thing about being a therapist is in helping people feel less anxious and rediscover that they’re likeable, capable, lovable and able to smile again because so often when clients first come in to therapy, those things often seem so very far away. 

Counselling sessions are:

  • Online via Zoom and Telephone. 
  • My Fees are from £45-00 per 50-60 minutes.
  • Payments are made via Bank Transfer.

My first session

Reaching out for help can feel scary and overwhelming. It is common to sometimes experience a feeling of anxiousness, nervousness or apprehension. Where I know how this may feel for you right now.

I warmly invite you to contact me to book a free initial telephone meeting. 

I offer a free 20 minute initial telephone meeting, where you will be able to ask me any questions that you may have and we can talk about why you feel that you may benefit from counselling.

Having this space allows you to get a sense of how we might work together, your hopes and expectations of the therapy process. I can also answer any questions or concerns you may have.

If you feel comfortable with me and feel I am the right counsellor for you, we can book a counselling session together.
