Ryan Dawes, Mphil, PGDip, Reg.MBACP - Counsellor in Glasgow
Based in Glasgow
Services that are offered: Counselling • Students • Young People • Relationships • Depression • Trauma • Anxiety • Stress • Abuse
Hello and welcome to my page. I did my counselling training at the University of Strathclyde.
In 2014 I spent five months living in three Buddhist monasteries/temples in South Korea, Myanmar, and Thailand. I have a meditation practice which strongly shapes how I work. In 2018 I was able to explore my interest in the process of complex trauma arising out of routine or prolonged and repeated abuse within a relationship(s) which led me to explore my own experience of routine abuse in childhood.
Person-centred/experiential counselling is • a confidential space that can offer safety when things are difficult or impossible to bear • a space to help explore new or unknown aspects of yourself.
I aim to provide or offer
• an unconditional acceptance that is safe, warm and respectful of how you are and what you are
• a climate conducive to being with your feelings, thoughts or what is important to you
through following your lead and trying to understand things from your point of view.
I have worked with young people and adults suffering with anxiety, depression, trauma / complex trauma, dissociation, prolonged and repeated abuse within a relationship(s) / routine abuse, ritual abuse, self-harm, suicidal impulse / thoughts about suicide, relationship difficulties and people searching for meaning or change in their lives.
I can meet in Glasgow or online.
I have an interest in Focusing (www.focusing.org) and practice-based counselling research.
