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 provide an impartial perspective on what you are facing.
By talking through some of your worries, your own understanding and awareness can be developed. To help you move forward, I can offer you a non-judgmental space to explore freely your thoughts and feelings, in a safe, empathetic and confidential setting; recognising the individuality of your values, belief system and cultural background.
I work with individual young people and adults. 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.
