Because talking helps, and being heard matters

Hi, I'm Dawn Boultwood, a BA​CP-registered counsellor, offering online face-to-face  sessions via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime. Welcome to my website. 

Through life’s tough times you might feel that you are facing things alone, or that you need a different kind of support to that which your family/friends can provide. As a person-centred counsellor I can offer you an opportunity to speak with a trained professional who is outside of your situation and explore what is really going on for you. This can help you to process difficult thoughts/feelings, and re-evaluate your concerns making life feel easier and more manageable. As the saying goes, talking helps!

I have worked with people who have come to counselling for many different reasons*. These include: anxiety, panic attacks/panic disorder, stress, depression, low mood/sadness, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, unwanted thoughts or fears, bereavement, fertility problems, relationship problems, family issues, work-related issues, accident/illness, and difficulty coping with a past event.

Online appointments offer a greater range of session times, and more flexibility with the frequency and regularity of sessions. It also allows me to reach those clients who do not feel able to come to my therapy room. I currently have a range of appointment times available.

Please feel free to look through my website. If you would like any further information, or would like to make an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact me.

As such, I work together with my clients to build trust, mutual respect and the desire to work in partnership during our sessions.

It can always be difficult to open up to someone you don't know but Dawn instantly made me feel at ease. She provided me with a warm, welcoming, safe space to work through some difficulties at my own pace. She is extremely professional but very friendly and I regularly left in higher spirits. I highly recommended. – E

When Dawn and I worked together she really listened to me and worked in the way that I needed. I felt very safe with Dawn and very heard. She offered me a space to be however I needed to be, and to offload. The biggest thing for me was feeling that Dawn gave me her attention, that she listened, that she understood, and that she valued me. Dawn was a real help to me at a time I really needed it. I'm doing a lot better now! – G
