Dawn Davies Counselling
Hello and thanks for looking at my profile.
I am a qualified counsellor and have worked from my private practice based on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead and Kings Langley since I qualified in 2009.
During this time I have worked with many hundreds of clients offering long and short term counselling. Working with a wide range of presenting issues helping people to make sense of their lives in the exploration of what it means to be human.
Presenting issues include but not limited to: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement, anger and difficult relationships. Feelings of disconnection from self and others, or feeling disillusioned with life; lacking purpose and meaning.
Counselling offers a unique relationship in a safe confidential environment without judgement to explore and make sense of your life experiences, relationships, or feelings about yourself.
I have learnt so much from my clients and my own experience about what it means to be human. It's not always easy as we try to navigate our way through life and I believe strongly that everyone could benefit from counselling.
In our first session we can discuss your reasons for coming and how we might work together. Sometimes people seek therapy not being clear what's wrong or what they want from counselling, that's OK too! We can be with the not knowing as we explore together.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Registered Member of the BACP
I am bound by the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedures.
In addition to face to face counselling I also offer sessions by Skype.
This option maybe useful if it is difficult for you to leave the house due to child care or other reasons. It also means that you can fit it in around your busy life style and other home/work responsibilities and commitments.
It also gives you the option to work with a wider range of therapists and not limited by location.
Anyone with an internet connection and a PC or laptop with a webcam can talk face to face from your own home.
I offer an initial free half hour session for potential Skype clients to see whether this way of working might be an option for you.
Please contact me via email or telephone if you would like to discuss this option.
