Dawn Doucet, Student,

I believe in creating a space for people to share their story. I have a warm, gentle approach and think that a large part of healing comes from exploring and processing experiences in a safe space. I like to help people grow and gain insight through supporting them to unravel life experiences and recreate stories and beliefs that are no longer helping them. I draw from a sound base of theories and I relate from a heart-centered and compassionate place.

More about Dawn Doucet

I have worked as a counsellor and social worker for several years, having graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work degree in 2002. My career focus has consistently been on health and wellness. I have worked in the field of addictions, medical rehabilitation, and family support and intervention. I enjoy working with a diverse range of individuals and have worked with people of all ages ranging from children to older adults. My work is based from a strengths and empowerment perspective and I actively support clients to recognize their inner and outer resources and to foster self-compassion. I have a solid base in Solution Focused Therapy and also use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative Therapy in my counselling work. My areas of interest include: addictions, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, self-compassion, sensory processing sensitivity (highly sensitive people or HSPs), expressive writing, transitions and lifestyle changes, personality disorders, and learning disorders.
