Diana Dawson is a M.A., Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), Brainspotting practitioner in BC who sees clients using convenient tele-health, online video, or phone options in British Columbia.
I provide 30 min complimentary introductory sessions to be able to determine if we both feel we are a good fit.
Working with people and helping them feel like they understand themselves and the whys, the where beliefs and behaviours originated from and to feel like themselves in their own lives has been what I have always had a passion to do. I am so happy to be able to assist clients in hearing their own voice to make choices that honor their wants and needs and shape a life that they can find contentment and a change to what they have known before.
Being able to really focus on what is happening for you in your life, and what you would like to change is amazing work. Using a humanistic, strengths based, IFS and the trauma approach of Brainspotting offers the benefits of learning about yourself and how you were shaped, why you feel what you do and how to work with this in the future so that you tune into yourself and make decisions that honor that. To create a life that reflects you, your wants and needs is where we will feel the most at home. We all deserve to feel and live this way.
Helping clients find ways to bring a sense of calm, work with boundaries and to be able to tune into their own voices and needs is one of my favorite aspects of this work. I especially enjoy working with women and teens as often for many reasons, they are not able to really hear their own authentic voice which can lead to so many issues. Being able to help them find this is so rewarding. Through this work, seeing them find ways of feeling less stressed, experiencing more joy and more peace is so much of the reason I felt drawn to this work.
For many clients, our past and often families have shaped our views so much that can lead to living a life that can feel not your own. Finding ways to bring calm into your life while at the same time understanding yourself better can be transformative and so helpful for our hectic lives. Women balancing the increasing demands of the modern family with often less supports and career pressures can find themselves almost lacking experiencing much of anything in their lives and wanting to change this. Teens who find themselves so confused and unable to feel truly themselves, while balancing family demands and social group pressures, who wish to live authentically for themselves can learn to tune in to who they are and find more of themself and a calm in their lives.
A different way of feeling, experiencing and living is possible. I would be glad to show you how.
