John Dawson Counsellor Reg MBACP
Life can be difficult and challenging at times and having someone to support you and talk things through can help you find the strength to overcome difficulties.
I am a qualified counsellor with over 16 years experience, working with clients on a one-to-one and group basis. I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment to work through difficult and often painful life issues.
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy, which can be tailored to your specific needs.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such work to their Code of Ethics.
If you think Im the right therapist for you then please get in touch to book an appointment. We can discuss your needs and what goals you would like to achieve from therapy. We can also discuss any questions or queries you may have.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
