Dijana Dawson Registered Member BACP
I am a fully qualified counsellor with experience in working successfully with individuals from many different backgrounds on a wide range of issues. My main approach to therapeutic work is integrative, which means I use a skills set from different approaches in order to meet the individual needs of my clients.
Depression, anxiety, stress, domestic violence, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, coming to terms with bereavement and loss, coping with lifestyle changes and work related problems are amongst the most frequent issues that I work through with my clients.
How I would work with you
You may be coming to therapy for the first time or have prior experience and in either case it can take courage to reach out. I aim to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space where you’ll be able to explore, discover and work through underlying feelings and issues which may be causing you distress. By understanding more about yourself, and increasing your self-awareness you will have the opportunity to gain fresh insights into your life and patterns of behaviour.
My past experience includes working with people with drug and alcohol misuse issues at NHS Drug and Alcohol Treatment Consortium in Southwest London. I have also worked in schools with parents who have faced many challenges as well as at Place2Be where I counselled primary school age children.
If you would like to book an appointment, please call or email me. During the initial session we can discuss your current concerns and we can decide if I am the right person to help you move forward. If you'd like to continue, we can arrange suitable day and time to meet again, however you are under no obligation to have further sessions.
