Dawn Saxton (MNCS Accred) - Integrative Counsellor
Hello, I'm Dawn and I am an integrative Counsellor offering online, telephone and walk and talk sessions to men and women. I help my clients to overcome various challenges including, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma and stress related issues. I understand the huge impact this has on physical, emotional and mental well-being.
It may feel debilitating and restricting, where your life is controlled daily by these difficulties. The smallest of things in your life may have suddenly become one of your biggest tasks and challenges. Together we can look at positive ways forward to help you manage this, looking at triggers, unhelpful patterns, coping mechanisms and practical ways to take control of your life.
I work creatively which may feel easier than talking. Sometimes expressing words can be difficult and this may stop people from seeking help. I use visual and creative ways to help verbalise any difficult and painful unspoken words.
How I can help you?
Life can be difficult and may feel lonely at times. Sometimes finding the words to explain how you really feel on the inside can be so very hard. Living with these struggles can feel like a huge weight, often making you feel exhausted, lost and lonely. You may not know which way to turn or if anyone will understand how you are feeling. This can feel very challenging and extremely overwhelming.
Together we can find ways to help you move forward, building resilience and exploring tools to overcome obstacles. Making positive changes and gaining new perspectives will enable you to reach your goals, heal and live the life you deserve.
I understand just how difficult this is for you right now, so if you have any further questions or would like to book an appointment, call me on 07915 204031 or click here to send me an email.
I look forward to speaking with you.
