**Welcome to Dawn's Counseling Services in Warwick**
Are you seeking counseling in Warwick? I'm Dawn, and I understand that taking the step toward counseling can be daunting. It's crucial to find the right counselor to meet your needs. Counseling is a dedicated time for you to discuss what matters most, whether it's everyday events, dilemmas, feelings, thoughts, or fears.
With over 14 years of experience as both an Adult and Children's counselor and as the Manager of a family support service at a local hospice, I bring extensive expertise. I've worked with adults, children, young people, and those facing life-limiting conditions in palliative care. I've also managed bereavement groups and workshops for adults and children and have a strong background in training.
I specialize in helping individuals navigate issues like divorce, illness, abuse, stress, trauma, work-related challenges, bereavement, and general counseling.
My approach is grounded in Person-Centered Counseling, valuing the uniqueness of each individual. I particularly enjoy working with children, helping them express and understand their emotions during what can be a confusing time in their lives.
You'll find a safe and confidential space at my home in Warwick, where I offer both short and long-term therapy sessions, each lasting 60 minutes.
I'm a qualified and experienced Person-Centered Counselor and Supervisor, registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I hold a Diploma in Person-Centered Counseling and Childhood Bereavement, and I'm trained to work with clients who have experienced sexual abuse.
Children, like adults, can benefit from counseling, developing valuable problem-solving skills. If you have questions or would like to discuss your needs further, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Your journey to emotional well-being starts here.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and experienced Person Centred Counsellor and Supervisor. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I consider myself to be a warm and friendly person.
I have a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and also a Diploma in Childhood Bereavement. I am also an experienced trainer in working with loss, and trained to work with clients that have been sexually abused.
I enjoy working with children also, as they too find it difficult to express, understand and explain their emotions. Their world can be frightening and confusing, especially at certain developmental stages when they have not yet developed the cognitive skills in order to problem solve. Very often children are not given the explanation or opportunity to work through difficult changes at school, within the family and during their own physical and emotional development. Just like adults, children can benefit from counselling. Its proven to help children develop problem-solving skills.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
