Dawn Grover - BA Hons in Counselling and Registered Member of the BACP
We can all experience difficult times in our life when we feel we need a little bit of help to get us through. For many different reasons we also sometimes don't want to, or feel able, to turn to family, friends or work colleagues for support. I have had my own experience of personal therapy and understand that it can feel quite daunting looking for counselling support. Counselling gives you your own quiet space and time to focus on you and your needs.
I can offer you a warm, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to feel comfortable and relaxed to explore your problems. My counselling experience has been working with adults, young people and older adults. I have worked extensively with issues on loss, addictions, bullying, abuse, stress, depression, relationships, self esteem and confidence. This experience has been gained not only through private practice but also working for a number of charitable organisations who support adults and young people with many of these issues.
I work in a flexible way to meet your individual needs. My primary practice is the person-centred approach but I can also integrate other models of counselling which include a problem solving management tool as well as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This way of practice helps me to understand, with empathy, your experience from your perspective and helps us to work together to explore issues affecting you.
I offer one-to-one counselling in your own home, which covers the Tees Valley area, or at an office based in Hartlepool.
Through my own personal counselling I became aware of the powerful impact and natural healing of reiki. Reiki can be used for calming and relaxation purposes or becoming more connected to our mind and body.
I am currently qualified to Level II and can offer treatments individually or combined with counselling.
