Dawn Fitzpatrick - Counsellor and Supervisor, MBACP.
Hello and thank you for reading my profile to look at the services that I can offer. As a result of the current COVID-19 situation. I am currently offering Telephone Counselling only. Please scroll to this section on my website, where there will be more information. I would also be happy to support your understanding of this way of working, in advance of our first session if you wish. Stay safe and I hope to hear from you soon. Dawn.
Couples. Individuals. Young People
As an experienced and qualified Couples Counsellor, I specialise in working with couples and individuals on their relationship issues. I am also a qualified Children's Therapist and offer a clinical space to children and young people, aged 12 and up.
At the heart of counselling, is the relationship between you and your Counsellor. So, it is important that you find someone with whom you like and trust. I hope that the information found here, and the testimonials that are available to read on my website, will help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
Counselling can provide an opportunity for you to think and talk in confidence about personal or emotional difficulties that are concerning you. It is a time and space to examine, reflect and understand the root of your troubles. In order to explore and develop more effective ways of dealing with them.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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).
