Dawn Templeton MBACP Dip Counselling
I have worked with panic attacks, anxiety and depression as a counsellor for over 15 years and also had personal experience of witnessing close family members suffer from panic attacks and prolonged anxiety.
I am a partner at Stress3dom LLP, whose aim is to help those suffering from anxiety and panic attacks. Our unique treatment method provides both a short and long-term solution. It helps to address all aspects of Panic Attacks, whether it be physical, emotional or chemical.
If you are unsure that you are suffering from anxiety or panic attacks, take a look at www.stress3dom.com.
In my private practice, the majority of clients are referred by medical practitioners and GPs. I have worked at a clinic in London and for the charity CRUSE for seven years.
I have previously featured in ELLE magazine and the Guardian newspaper and The Metro Newspaper (London).
When choosing a counsellor it's more important that you find someone you feel totally comfortable with, rather than the particular theories that they use.
I use many different counselling theories. This enables me to work flexibly and creatively to meet the individual needs of my clients as I don't believe that a 'one size fits all'. This can all be discussed in our first session which is free of charge for individuals.
In my private practice on Ashdown Forest, I work with both individuals, couples and older children from 11 to 18 years. I work closely with GP's at a local surgery who regularly refer clients to me. Working as a couples counsellor and also with teenagers are areas of counselling that I'm particularly passionate about.
I offer a caring, empathic and non-judgemental environment in which we can discuss any issue you may wish to bring. Together we can look at the choices available to you.
The counselling models that I work with include; Person Centred, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I have worked as a couple counsellor for over 9 years. I also enjoy working with troubled young people and have provided counselling for local schools.
