I'm Dawn, a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor. Thank you for viewing my profile, I understand how daunting it may feel for you to contact me. Counselling can be an opportunity to help you improve self-confidence, self-esteem and to accept changes.
I have been working with individuals aged 4 to 94 for over 10 years and provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore your issues, understand your feelings more and develop acceptance or make important choices in your life.
As a counsellor, I have had vast experience of working with young people as carers, looked after children and children in a school setting with many presenting issues. Young people have also benefited from the varied services I offer, including Art and Play Therapy Transition Coaching for all age groups and I facilitate group work on request. I work with veterans in the local area and help many recovering from P.T.S.D (post-traumatic stress disorder) and those adjusting to resettling into the community.
I have experience of working with anxiety, prolonged stress, grief, loss, relationship issues and anger management as well as M.E. and chronic fatigue syndrome. I am also LGBTQ+ friendly.
I welcome you and your commitment so that you can explore with freedom and without judgement, any issues or worries you may have.

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.
