About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Dawn and I am an integrative Counsellor offering online, telephone and walk and talk sessions covering South Yorkshire and surrounding areas. I work with Adults and Children and Young People aged 9-18 years. I can help you to overcome various challenges and difficulties that are impacting on physical, emotional and mental well-being.

I understand just how difficult this is for you right now, where finding a Counsellor can feel very overwhelming. My promise to you is, I will be with you by your side supporting you throughout, walking every step of the way with you on your journey.

Just for a moment, I invite you to imagine how things could be different for you.

Life can often race past us, where we may have forgotten about ourselves, who we are, and what it is we want and need.

Maybe you are realising that you want more from your life and for that to happen, you need to make changes but this is something that is not possible for you to do alone.

Difficulties with Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Depression, OCD, Suicidal Thoughts, Trauma, or feeling sad with Low self-esteem and Confidence can really effect daily life.

Facing these challenges and difficulties alone can often make us feel overwhelmed and unsure about who we are, and if change is even possible. This can feel debilitating and restricting, where your life may feel controlled. The smallest of things in your life may have suddenly become one of your biggest tasks and challenges. 

Together we can look at positive ways forward to help you manage these, looking at triggers, unhelpful patterns, coping mechanisms and practical ways to take control of your life. This will help move and guide you forward, building resilience and exploring tools to overcome obstacles. 

Making positive changes and gaining new perspectives will enable 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 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. 

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.

 Counselling sessions are:

  • Online via Zoom and Telephone. My Fees are £40-00 per 50 minutes.
  • I also offer Walking and Talking sessions (Adults only) in the South Yorkshire and surrounding areas. My fees are £45-00 per 50 minute sessions.
  • Payments are made via Bank Transfer.

My first session

Reaching out for help can feel scary and overwhelming. I know how this feels for you right now as I too have overcome many hurdles in my own life.

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

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