About me

Hi there I’m Dot and thank you for taking the time to look at my page. Just to tell you a bit about myself and how I may support you.

I am currently working in Heswell and Bromborough in private practice as part of a team Workingtogether121 and I am a qualified, registered integrative Counsellor specialising in Cognitive Behaviour (CBT). As well as counselling, I am also a qualified Reiki Practitioner/Master Trainer. Counselling can be provided through services such as skype, what's App and telephone counselling and I have worked with clients who have been referred for counselling through the Employer Assisted Programmes (EAP) service.

I have lots of experience in helping people to move towards a better place of wellbeing and these include supporting clients with anxiety (generalised anxiety disorder), depression, relationships, divorce, self-esteem, bereavement, substance misuse including drug and alcohol, loss and grief including loss of a pet, self-harm, phobias, fertility, school related difficulties, anger management, eating disorders, OCD, addictions, PTSD, work related issues, redundancy, trauma, unemployment, retirement, health anxiety, suicide ideation, bullying, and autism spectrum conditions. I work with all age groups including children and young people and I also offer mediation/couple counselling. In the past, I have also supported and worked with University students helping them to reach their full potential and toward their goals.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 7 years’ experience working in a counselling setting, privately and within the voluntary sector. I have worked closely with young people, students, adults, and outside agencies, offering support and guidance. I am totally committed to my counselling role and consider this as my vocation and one that I am passionate about. I will work with you collaboratively to help you achieve your goals. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a client grow and move towards a better emotional state. My aim through the CBT approach is to help you become your own therapist so you may use the many techniques learnt, empowering you to be and do better thus taking responsibility for your emotional, and physical wellbeing.

Aside from my private work within the clinic, I work with adults and young people to move them closer towards the labour market by providing support with employability i.e writing CV’s, applications and supporting with interview skills. I also coordinate and deliver many training workshops to young people  for example Princes' Trust programmes. My experience also consists of working with staff in an education setting offering them support too when needed.

I hold an  AQA Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (which includes working with Trauma, and Children and Young People), and I am a qualified Reiki Practitioner (The Usui System of Natural Healing). In the past, I have used Reiki to treat staff of The Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospital Trust in Liverpool as part of a wellbeing at work initiative.
