Dawn Spiers Adv Dip MBACP
I have over 15 years experience as a trained integrative counsellor ( meaning I look at a clients need individually) working with diverse issues including abuse, anxiety, esteem, loss, identity, addiction and relationships
It is not always possible to talk to those close and sometimes we just don't have the inner resources to cope with the stresses and issues that life can throw at us.
I'm here to support whatever the issue by helping to facilitate the changes you wish to make for a happier life. I provide a safe, non judgemental and caring space to talk.-my training enables me to use a range of modules (psychodynamic - looking at past patterns and humanistic- enabling clients to explore ) . I assist a client in helping develop more self awareness and tools to support them in their therapeutic healing process.
The pandemic crisis we are facing is a serious concern for many and can exacerbate underlying anxiety or stress particularly when having to isolate, face work or other significant life changes. I am here to help.
I have clients referred by GP's both NHS and Private and I work authentically to understand and assist clients in reaching goals and handling issues they may have through short or long term counselling.

MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.
