Dawn Wasnidge
Bsc, Dip, MBACP

07943 519195



I am a professionally qualified and experienced counsellor, a registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am committed to working within the ethics, values and principles of my profession. I have a Diploma in The Theory and Practice of counselling and a BSc in Therapeutic Counselling.


My decision to train as a counsellor was born from my love of people and the desire to help and to make a difference. My work now involves general counselling, specialist counselling for the NHS with adults on the autistic spectrum, and work within the voluntary sector supporting families around disabilities and additional needs. I have experience of working with clients who have suffered domestic abuse, anxiety and depression, loss, post traumatic stress and those who face issues around difference and diversity. I work with individuals, couples and groups and am able to work with a wide variety of presenting issues.


I love my career as a counsellor and I am constantly seeking out ways to build upon my experience and to widen my knowledge of in all areas of psychological wellbeing. My core training is in the Person Centred Approach which has an underlying ethos of trust in human nature and the tendency towards growth and fulfilment. Through further study and personal development I have also gained knowledge of other models of psychological therapy, including humanistic, existential, CBT and psychodynamic; tools which I am able to use with individual clients as and when they are needed.


As a part of a New Day Counselling Practice I am very lucky to be working with my two colleagues Catherine and Claire. We are able to share our knowledge and experience, supporting each other as we strive to work within the very best interests of clients, respecting diversity and individual experience in a non-judgemental and accepting environment. If you would like any further information about the services we can offer please email or give one of us a call.
