Dawn Buckley, Dawn on you
What's it like when you work in partnership with someone who truly believes in you and all you have to offer the world? Someone who really listens to you in detail and then commits to working with you to facilitate your journey to wherever you want to get to.
Believing that we all possess the inner resources to make our lives what we want them to be, it is with pleasure that I join you in a partnership that encourages you to access all your existing skills and talents (however deeply they may be hidden) to overcome any difficulties you may be experiencing currently to create a life where you can thrive.
As a qualified counsellor, coach and business woman, I offer you a broad range of skills and experience to help facilitate the transformation you desire. In a fun and relaxed manner, we pool our skills to help you overcome whatever challenges you may have and to reach the goals that matter to you the most. At times I will help you make sense of what's going on for you, at other times I will help draw out from you what matters most and then encourage you to live in alignment with your values so that your can bring your unique individuality to the world. This is where things start to get really exciting.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a business woman, qualified counsellor and coach, elite sports person, artist and mother of two, I bring many skills to our journey together. My approach places you at the centre of your world and we examine what works for you as the unique individual that you are.
I possess two degrees, one in mathematics from Leeds University and one in counselling and psychotherapy from Greenwich University so can offer a broad perspective on life.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (including it's coaching division) and the Association for Integrative Coach-Therapist Professionals.
I have experience in fast-paced high pressured business environments, in IT, with entrepreneurs, with health professionals, in sports, with singers and artists, with authors, with young people, with parents and people in all walks of life from all backgrounds.
Making the life that you want can be difficult unless you take the time out to really work out what you want and then put yourself in the drivers seat of your life. Sometimes this might need an internal examination of what's going on for you and how to overcome inner hurdles. At other times this might need an external look at what the world has to offer and what it is that you want. My unique and sensitive approach enables us to work together to facilitate your journey and your growth.
Following an initial assessment, we agree a way forward that focuses on your needs and the outcomes you wish to achieve. Confidence building is often a key part of the process along with enhancing your decision-making skills and overcoming whatever hurdles may be getting in the way. Putting your situation into context is often a very revealing and freeing process. I use a large white board to draw out our discussions and to provide a visual manner in which to view situations or problems. I use props and tools that make the sessions fun and enjoyable whilst also helping you move forwards effectively.

Please call or email me to set up an initial dialogue to help determine if I am the right person for you. No obligation and no fee for this service by phone or email.
I offer a half price initial consultation, blocks of 8 sessions at a discounted rate and a 3-hour intensive session for those who want to make progress quickly.
You helped me reach goals that have been brewing inside of me for years but I never found the motivation or confidence to make them happen. I always looked forward to the sessions with you and was delighted with the progress each time. Thank you so much for helping me change my life!
And Galileo’s quote…well it epitomises your approach; where you’re coming from, and right now I’m struggling to articulate it, but I think that’s what sets you apart. I think probably that’s the ideal for the basis of all personal consultation but somehow you take it to a greater dimension. And that’s why I’ve always gone away feeling so empowered and also, normal!
Dawn is an amazing listener and very perceptive in her comments. Her empathy is second to none and she is very intuitive. Working with Dawn always makes a huge difference and her sessions are always very creative. Dawn always asks the right questions so that my mind becomes clearer and I know which directions I want to go in. She gives me the confidence I need to trust my instincts and my decisions. I would have been truly lost without Dawns support and great life coaching. I would definitely recommend Dawn!
Thank you with all my heart for empowering me and giving me the courage to redefine my place in the world. I am so appreciative and thankful. I felt extremely safe with you, able to share private thoughts in complete confidence and with total acceptance from you. I have benefitted enormously and feel more empowered in my daily life.
