Dawn is a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and is based at our Gloucester consulting room. She works with clients aged 18 and above, both face to face and over the telephone. She offers both short and longer term therapy working within the BACP’s ethical guidelines. Her diverse experience is supplemented by continuous and ongoing training and personal development.
Dawn’s philosophy is based on finding meaning and adding value to life. She believes that together we can begin to unlock our potential, start to make sense of our feelings, connect with our bigger self and realise what we want from life. Clients have remarked that Dawn is a safe, trustworthy, accepting, kind and loving person. She provides a non-judgemental and supportive environment to explore both past and present experiences such as childhood trauma, relationships with ourselves and others, or indeed whatever else is happening in the now, and thus move forward with increased self-awareness.
