Dionne Treasure - Bsc (Hons) Psychotherapy and Person Centred counselling. MBACP
As a Person Centred Counsellor a relationship built on a foundation of trust is my main priority this then provides you with a confidential, non-judgemental space where you feel comfortable enough to explore your world.
I offer an initial free meet and greet session, where you are able to see if you would feel comfortable with me to be able to talk openly. After that initial meeting, you can then take some time and either decide to go ahead with sessions or not, you do not need to contact me if you choose not to, the decision is completely yours. There is no limit on number of sessions and frequency is discussed between us to ensure your needs and financial situation is taken into account.
I am passionate that you remain at the centre of our sessions, and see you as an individual who is living and experiencing within the boundaries of your own world, that comes with it's challenges and triumphs. I am a strong believer that the answers lie within us and that there are times when we need someone to walk beside us as we explore, challenge and recognise what may be causing us issues.
I work with adults of all ages and across a multitude of issues including (but not limited to); bereavement, chronic and life limiting illness, anxiety, depression, abuse, low self-esteem, isolation, family and relationship issues, trauma and sexuality, gender and race issues.
I have worked within the NHS IAPT service as well as within the social care sector.
Empowerment and self esteem is a true passion of mine therefore I facilitate empowerment groups for adults and young people as well as mindfulness workshops.
I also offer life coaching. Life coaching supports an individual to overcome blocks by offering specific strategies that are goal orientated to help achieve specific results. These sessions are booked as a minimum of 6 sessions due to the level and type of commitment that is required.

What is counselling?
Counselling offers regular opportunities to explore your issues in an unbiased and confidential environment. Whilst we don’t offer advice, talking things through can help you to work towards solutions to your problems.
How many sessions will I need?
Every client is different and so unfortunately this is impossible to answer. Upon meeting we will discuss your needs and budget and see how best we can work with them. We also regularly review our work with you as a client; this may include discussion around the number of sessions going forward.
What does being a Registered BACP member mean?
BACP is a regulatory body; in order to be a member a counsellor must have completed training to a sufficient standard and undertake ongoing training and development. They provide registered counsellors with an ethical framework to follow in order to ensure an optimum standard of counselling is delivered and a complaints procedure to offer further protection to clients.
Which methods of counselling do you offer?
Whilst face to face counselling is our preferred method of counselling due to the deeper therapeutic connection this method can offer, we can also offer sessions via Skype or telephone. These additional methods can be particularly helpful during illness as they enable a continuation of therapy which may otherwise not be possible.
