About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Dawn, I offer a warm therapeutic space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences in a safe, compassionate environment. 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

I am a friendly, warm and compassionate person. I feel a deep level of empathy, enabling me to listen and connect to whatever is on your mind. I am very open minded, impartial and accepting. I aim to create a warm, trusting, and compassionate space where you can feel safe to be yourself and talk openly without any judgement or pressures. 

I am a rewind practitioner completing the IARTT training. The rewind technique can help reduce, or in some cases remove, the following PTSD symptoms: flashbacks, intrusive thoughts or images, nightmares, intense distress at real or symbolic reminders of the trauma, physical sensations such as pain, sweating, nausea, or trembling, cure phobias, and reduce anxiety helping the victims of abuse, rape, violence, car accidents, fire, terrorism and panic attacks, heart attacks and other life-threatening experiences. This technique can be incorporated into your therapy journey. 

Sometimes expressing words can be difficult, this may stop people from seeking help. I work creatively which may feel easier than talking. I use visual and creative ways to help verbalise any difficult and painful unspoken words. This is a great way to express your emotions, process any complex feelings and help you to find comfort, clarity and calmness.
