Dawn Spence MBACP Counsellor, Psychotherapist
Anxiety and depression related to business stress, work and family issues and challenging life decisions?
I also work with conflict in the workplace and with individuals in understanding issues of race and difference.
I work with issues around adoption, fertility, bereavement, depression, stress, premature birth, redundancy, separation and life changing decisions.
I offer short and long term therapy and CBT. it can be a tremendous strain to go through challenging times on our own when all we want is to be able to see a way forward. My training as a therapist is integrative, which means that I have a wider perspective of different counselling styles and I am therefore able to tailor my work to support your individual needs, according to the challenges that you might be facing at any given time, rather than trying to fit you into a style that does not match you as an individual. Whether you are seeking emotional support in or out of the workplace, my aim is to provide a safe and supporting space for you to work through the challenges that you may be facing, so that you can feel supported and heard.
We can sometimes shut down from our feelings in order to cope, whilst pursuing demanding careers, which then leads to potential burnout. Ambition and self awareness when balanced together, can be very empowering and my training in the corporate world and as a therapist, has enabled me to gain a deeper understanding of how to find a way to balance the two emotional states so that we can lead happy and fulfilling lives. whilst fulfilling our dreams.
I also provide a space for the entrepreneur who feels under pressure whilst trying to make things work. It is a space for you to come to during challenging times, as well as times when you are just seeking support when dealing with issues with employees, partners or being in the midst of making career decisions and would like to work through some fears related to these situations that can sometimes make us feel overwhelmed and confused, or when you just simply realise that what you need is a place where you are able to work through your feelings, in order to make sense of things and to be sure that you're on the right career path.
