Hi I'm Dawn, a Transpersonal and Integrative Child and Family Psychotherapist, Spiritual Coach and Shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner.
I am based in Plympton, Plymouth and am working online with Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp Video, Skype and Telephone sessions.
I work with individuals (children, teens and adults) and families and my specialism is Children and Parents.
My aim and passion is to help people flourish. To find your truth, resilience and independence.
The work is collaborative and together we release and transform the core issues that are stopping you from shining your light. To enable you to bring your unique, divine beauty, purpose and wisdom into the world. To live your Truth in Body, Mind, Heart and Soul.
I provide a safe space, using creative techniques as well as talking, to enable an authentic, lasting transformative process, facilitating inner wellbeing, fundamental resource, wholeness, meaning and purpose.
I also offer Spiritual Coaching, a resource to help you quickly ascertain the true root cause of your issue, so that you can continue your own healing journey, aided with this invaluable insight and understanding.
To journey deeper, I also offer Shamanic Energy Medicine, with the Spiritual Coaching, enabling you to experience the core breakthrough work, as well as the visceral process of clearing energy that is holding you back.
All of the work I do is underpinned with over 20 years of personal and professional continued practice in psychotherapy, developmental psychology, mindfulness, body and energy work, I provide a comprehensive, supportive environment in which to explore, heal and individuate.
I look forward to working with you and please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.
Best wishes, Dawn.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have always naturally been a "people" person, enjoying helping others help themselves. I finally sought counselling for myself in 1998, after realising I too needed help in finding who I was and simply feeling happy. It was a catalyst for my journey of healing, self-discovery and living authentically. I continued from there to explore and develop my purpose and passion for self-actualisation and helping others find fulfilment in their journey.
I trained at The Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE.org.uk) in Little Venice, London, from January 2002 and graduated in October 2007 as a Transpersonal and Integrative Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist.
I am passionate about living fully and consciously and continued my training in 2017 in Energy Medicine and Coaching to further compliment the service I offer.
I have worked with clients of all ages since 2002, and been in private practice since 2006.
