Hello and welcome to my profile.
I have enjoyed working with and helping people for as long as I can remember; firstly as a registered (and currently serving) paramedic, for over 13 years, and more recently as a specialist Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.
As a paramedic I have trained as a Trauma Risk Management Practitioner and in suicide prevention and assistance, and have significant experience in both supporting and managing mental health crises within the community.
As a therapist and counsellor I specialise in assisting those with anxiety/depression-related issues and am experienced in supporting individuals suffering from trauma-related problems. I am currently supporting bereaved clients at Farleigh Hospice in Chelmsford, and trauma/anxiety clients at SECE Mind in Southend, in addition to managing my private client list.
As a therapist, I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society, an individual member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am on the General Hypnotherapy Register.
I am trained and experienced in Rewind Therapy, Kinetic Shift, EMDR hypnotherapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and am able to assist with a wide variety of issues (see list).
No problem is too big or small for consideration - contact me today and let's see what we can achieve together.

**during the Coronavirus restrictions I am offering therapy services remotely, via an online platform or telephone call, or as traditional face-to-face sessions with Department of Health recommended alterations in place**

“I was in such a bad place that I feared I would never return to normal activities, but Dawn’s professionalism, knowledge and understanding had me well on the road to recovery - I could never thank her enough for how much she has helped me grow and heal within five months, she truly saved my life.”

“Thank you so much for giving me your time, listening to me and helping me with my loss... I will never forget you or forget how much you have helped and guided me through these last four months.”:

“I wish I had found you sooner! I can’t believe the difference in myself, and neither can my friends or family, you’ve helped me more than I could ever thank you.”

“I cannot believe how positively affected I have been by my recent hypnotherapy sessions. As a long-term smoker I believed I would never be able to stop: Dawn proved me wrong!”

“Quite simply - thank you! I had been struggling with low feelings of self worth and anxiety, for many years, and assumed that I would always have this issue in my life. Dawn was referred to me by a friend and, after only a few short sessions, helped me to make sense of what I was feeling and why... I can’t believe the difference the therapy has made and how great I feel. I would absolutely recommend Dawn to anyone struggling with their issues.”
