Essence of Change Counselling

Promoting Change and Personal Growth

Providing post-rehab support to empower you on your recovery journey.

Person Centred Counselling

A non-directive approach where you direct the sessions as a means to discover your own way of being, bringing validation, insight and self-discovery.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT is a directive approach which can facilitate an empowering experience as you begin to gain insight into your problems.

Integrative Counselling

These sessions are very useful as it combines the Person Centred and CBT approaches together.

About me

Hi my name is Dawn. I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor and CBT therapist registered with the BACP. I have a social care background of over 20 years, that enabled me to discover that counselling was a part of the support I was already providing within my role. This discovery empowered me to further develop my skills. Ultimately choosing counselling as my profession. I have significant experience of working with people in recovery struggling to move forward with their lives after leaving rehab. I am committed to supporting you through your recovery journey, bringing validation, insight and self-discovery. Working together we will develop coping strategies to manage life outside of rehab. Linking your thoughts and corresponding emotional reactions that ties in to restrictive or unhealthy behaviour, promoting self-healing and personal growth. I can support you with, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, bereavement, trauma, low mood, self-esteem, anger management, domestic abuse, emotional abuse, low self-confidence, social anxiety and many more! If you feel you are ready to work with me on your own recovery journey, or you would like to ask some questions please feel free to contact me via telephone or email.
