New Dawn Counselling 

Dawn Whiteley Dip(HE) MBACP
Integrative Counsellor 
BACP Registration No 381657
Integrative Approach

The basis of my work is from the  Humanistic model and I pull in from other modalities to use tools and techniques to tailor an individual approach for you. 

This integrative approach to counselling looks at the whole person, taking into account mental, physical and emotional needs.

Safe and Ethical

I provide a safe and

confidential space to start your journey of therapy. 

I work within the BACP Ethical Framework to ensure you are kept safe throughout our work together.

I undertake regular Supervision with a BACP registered Supervisor to ensure my practice is considered and ethical at all times.

Space and Time to Explore 

I offer short or long term therapy.

The sessions are your time and so we will focus on what is important to you.

will walk alongside you as we go through the process and allow you the space to explore yourself and whatever you choose to bring.

Individual and Unique

You are unique and what you bring to therapy will be

individual to you. 

There will be a non-judgemental space for you to explore yourself and your feelings.

We can look at other techniques to help you express yourself, so you can flourish and grow.

My Approach
About Therapy & Dawn

Sometimes it's hard to know where to start.

You may be struggling with a relationship issue, work situation

or family problem. Or perhaps you have experienced

trauma, abuse or loss. 

Life stresses, anxieties and worries can mix up our feelings and so having a space to figure these out for yourself can be a great release. 

You may have lost your way a bit, lost your purpose

or lost what used to drive you.

Whatever you are feeling, having a non-judgemental space within a safe relationship can be the start to uncovering a better place to be.


I am a fully qualified

Integrative Counsellor 

and a registered member of the

British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).  

I graduated with a Diploma of Higher Education in Humanistic Counselling and obtained a Certificate in Counselling Skills.


 I undertake Continued Professional Development (CPD) to ensure my knowledge and skills are always up-to-date and undertake monthly Supervision to ensure my Practice is open, ethical and that I continue to learn.

I also work at a local Hospice as a Specialist Counsellor in Palliative Care & Bereavement.
