Dawn Johnston MBACP
Feeling overwhelmed? Stressed? Depressed? Anxious? Relationship problems? I can help.
I have been a practising and qualified counsellor for 15 years, counselling children, young adults, older people, couples and families. I cover the Formby, Southport and Crosby area and provide a professional, personal counselling session in a calming and safe environment.
I have built up a reputable practice, in which i believe speaks for itself through the many referrals i have had from previous and current clients, for which i am very grateful. It has been a privilege to be able to support people in changing their lives for the better, as everyone needs a little support at times.
Changing the lives of people is why I entered this field originally. I bring warmth, a safe and confidential environment where we can both discover which areas of your life you would like to change for the better.
Supervision is a reflective process based on the foundation of building rapport and trust. I like to strike the balance between supporting and assisting the counsellors I supervise, with the occasional tailored and individual challenge to help them think and improve their own practice. I am proud that many of my clients have progressed significantly in their careers, and stayed with me throughout their career over significant period of time.
