Dawn Stevens HPD/MBACP
There are times in our life when we can become stuck, feel totally overwhelmed and find it hard to cope with day to day life. You may feel alone and not want to share your personal feelings with family or friends. I can offer you a safe space where you will be supported and heard and where in your own time you are able to come to your own understanding and awareness that can help you move forward.
I work with women and girls . I offer both long and short term counselling.
I am a registered member of the BACP (The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work in accordance with their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
