Dawn Croydon-Fowler - Therapist in Nottingham

About me

I believe that therapy is a process not an event where over time you will learn the tools on how to live a happier life. 

That’s what most of us want, is to feel happier.

Life has so much twists and turns. Sometimes you just need some help to get to where you need to be. Here, you are in the right place to learn how to live the life you deserve.

About me as a person

Well, I think when you meet me, you will find I am very easy to talk to, people find that I am friendly, approachable and very “down-to-earth.”  I really enjoy talking to people, and supporting them with their issues. This is my passion really and I love what I do. 

Aside from this I enjoy spending time with my partner and teenage son. I also enjoy day-trips around the country, traveling down country roads to see where that takes you. I am also an avid reader and love photography.


I have worked for 8 years for charities supporting people with their addictions also worked in hostels and charities doing community development work. I have been counselling since 2008 and have worked with a wide variety of people over the years.
