About me

Hello, I'm Dawn and I am an integrative Counsellor offering online, telephone and walk and talk sessions covering South Yorkshire and surrounding areas. I work with Children and Young People aged 9-18 years and Adults. I help my clients to overcome various challenges and difficulties that are impacting on physical, emotional and mental well-being.

It may be that you struggling with problems such as, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, stress related issues or difficulties relating to Covid-19? Or that you are experiencing relationship difficulties, depression, panic attacks, experienced a bereavement, loss or maybe you are unsure of your identity and where you belong in life?

These challenges 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.

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.

Children and Young People (age 9-18 years)

Children and Young People's counselling is for any young person who is struggling with how they feel. Counselling can help children and young people find their way through whatever is troubling them and give them the tools, confidence and resilience to tackle future obstacles.

I can help young people deal with issues, events and the effects these are having on their mental wellbeing.

I work via online and telephone, walk and talk therapy is subject to the Young Persons age. See my website for more details.

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.
