About me

Hello, I’m Dawn. I am a BACP registered counsellor with experience of working with adults, children and young people.

I offer a person-centred approach to counselling that provides a safe and confidential space that allows you the opportunity to explore and reflect on the issues causing you concern as well as developing resilience, self-compassion and coping skills so that you feel better able to manage any emotional distress.

If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me via telephone or email

My private practice is based in a quiet location and is easily accessible. It is close to bus and rail services travelling to and from Cardiff and the surrounding area.
