About Me            

Alicia Dawson MNCS (Accred) & MBACP 

My name is Alicia and I am an Integrative Counsellor based in Plymouth, Devon.


I trained as an integrative counsellor after a long career supporting children and young people. I saw how transformative a therapeutic relationship could be, and was inspired to help adults and children to gain control over their own feelings and lives.

The space I provide is one for you to be yourself and not have to hide your true feelings.

Therapy Sessions

Talking to some one who is not a friend or family member can be healing. I offer talking and creative therapies, these are helpful to explore many different feelings. 

I work with adults, young people and am insured and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. This means that I work in an ethical and transparent way and also have a clean Enhanced DBS.

My therapy space is light and airy, enabling comfortable social distancing, in a peaceful central area of Plymouth with ample free parking.


Sessions can be delivered online if preferred.
