Dawn Henley

I am trained in psychodynamic and pluralistic approaches, which means I use an integrative style rooted in humanistic and person-centred values. I believe everyone is unique, and my approach considers your individual needs, goals, and life experiences.

Holistic Approach:

I take a holistic approach, considering your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Counselling, for me, is a journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing. It's a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings.

Building a Strong Relationship:

The foundation of our work is a strong therapeutic relationship. This allows you to share your innermost thoughts and feelings openly. By building trust, I can guide you towards self-discovery and help you establish healthier patterns of thought and behaviour.

Empowering You:

I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore yourself. My goal is to support you in finding your own answers and making positive changes in your life. You are capable of living authentically and achieving fulfilment.

Core Values:

  • Everyone has a need for connection and self-exploration.

  • We thrive when understood, accepted, and cared for.

  • People are resourceful and can build skills for positive change.

  • Counselling provides a unique space for growth and transformation.

Addressing Underlying Issues:

We will explore the underlying factors that contribute to your current challenges. Sometimes, we lose sight of our needs or get stuck in unhealthy patterns. Therapy can help you refocus on yourself and overcome obstacles.

Your Journey:

As your therapist, I facilitate your problem-solving process. You will draw your own conclusions and choose the direction for resolving your issues. Together, we will set goals and develop the self-awareness to achieve them.

My Passion:

I am passionate about empowering clients to reach their full potential. I am particularly interested in human behaviour, the mind-body connection, and how we can retrain our brains for better wellbeing.
