Megan Dawson, BSc(Hons) Psy. Acc.MBACP Reg. MBPsS
BACP Accredited Therapist. BUPA recognised Therapist.
In light of the coronavirus pandemic, I will not be seeing people in person for a while. This will also mean I am not restricted by area locally or globally. I am able to offer telephone or video-conferencing appointments to fit in with your life commitments.
In order to help you to make an informed decision, I have set out below a brief summary of how I view therapy and how I work:
Therapy is increasingly being shown as an effective way of dealing with a wide variety of personal issues. I would be wrong to say absolutely that therapy will work for you or that it is right for everyone, but I do know that I have worked successfully for over twenty years with many people for whom it has made a significant difference - to themselves, their relationships, and how they live their lives.
I believe we are all on a journey towards health, and wholeness, and the road to healing can often be difficult to navigate. Life challenges can result in feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, and loss of control, but these same struggles can be opportunities for growth. I will walk with you on your journey of self-discovery, and together we will uncover your unique strengths, develop coping skills, increase self-confidence, and work toward restoring balance in your life.
My therapeutic approach is integrative humanistic, which just means that I am trained in more than one approach. The strength of my approach rests on forging a genuine, durable and trusting therapeutic relationship, aiming to provide counselling in a safe and confidential environment, where you will be heard, but not judged, nor told what to do. You can use counselling to help you think more clearly, make decisions or changes in your life or come to terms with difficult past or present experiences. You cannot always change your circumstances, but you may find easier ways of dealing with it.
I work with adults, couples, young people, and children from 8+ on a variety of issues.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
