Dawn Duckmanton MBACP
Need some help and support and not sure what to do?
I genuinely care about people and feel at times we can all struggle to make sense of what we are going through and need some help and support.
My aim in our counselling relationship is for it to feel warm, understanding, supportive and sometimes challenging. It would be a safe and confidential place to feel accepted and valued. In this space we will work together to explore your issues, re-build self confidence and self worth to enable you to take responsibility for your own choices and positive changes within your life.
I offer individual counselling for adults of any age either on a limited or open ended arrangement.
I also offer counselling for couples.
Sometimes people find it difficult or uncomfortable to try to put their feelings into words so we can work with creative methods and materials to help you to access and express your feelings if necessary.
