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.
