Dawn Crockford - Adv Diploma, Reg MBACP
Hello my name is Dawn and whatever your reason for contacting a Counsellor, whether it be bereavement, trauma, divorce, anxiety, to name a few of normal life experiences, or just needing to speak to someone out of the family unit, to try and understand why you are responding in a way that is confusing to yourself at times, I am here to help you improve your emotional well-being.
I am passionate about helping my clients work through painful thoughts and feelings and I understand that the initial step of accepting support can be the hardest. However difficult it may be, it is a sign of strength which will support you through the counselling process.
As a qualified Integrative Counsellor, I can pull on a range of counselling techniques so your therapy is tailored to your individual needs, in a confidential, respectful, safe and non-judgemental space. As trust in the therapeutic relationship builds, you will hopefully feel empowered to look deeper into your thoughts and emotions and move forward with hope and new beginnings.
I have particular experience in working with anxiety and bereavement in adults and children.
