Hi, I'm Dawn Walton and I'm a trauma-informed Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Master NLP practitioner with a Masters in Psychology. I use NLP and Neuroscience to work with you to reprogramme your brain, in a solution-focussed, talking therapy approach. I’ve helped more than 1200 people all over the world, from ages 8 to 88. Are you ready to change? I can help you too.
I specialise in working with trauma - particularly complex PTSD arising from childhood issues. It is an area where I have lots of personal and client experience, and I've developed a therapeutic approach that is incredibly effective. Most clients need no more than 3 sessions to be able to get on with their lives without needing ongoing therapy.
It is said the in the UK 1 in 4 people has a mental health problem. That means 3 in 4 don't. That is simply not true. We are all screwed up. Let's change the way we talk about mental health to acknowledge how normal it is to be screwed up. Maybe what we should be able to say is: "This is my screw up. It is / is not getting in the way of my life right now!"
I experienced a range of different types of childhood trauma, and have battled CPTSD my whole life, without realising it. In 2011 I attended my first session of Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy with its founder, Trevor Silvester. From that moment my life changed.
I am not the right therapist for you because I understand what you've been through. I am the right therapist for you because I understand what it takes to live with trauma, and I understand what it feels like to overcome it and be free and happy.
Through my personal experiences of overcoming trauma, and my studies in Neuroscience and Psychology, I have developed a unique and powerful approach for clearing trauma. This approach does not require you to talk through your trauma, and can deliver life-changing changes in 2-3 sessions. It works exactly the same way when delivered online as in person, so it doesn't matter where in the world you are based, I can help you.
I’m looking forward to supporting you on your journey, whether it’s via sessions with me or my online, self-paced courses.
It’s a big decision choosing a therapist. I’m happy to chat so if you need to know more. Browse my site, message me follow me on my social media sites, or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I am not a 9-5, 5 days a week therapist. I work Monday to Saturday from 9am-8pm UK time. I also email and message in between sessions to make sure you are never alone once you start your journey.
If you've found any of my content helpful, then feel free to treat me to a coffee!
I really love hearing all the feedback I get on how my content resonates with you, either through the "We're all screwed up and that's OK" podcast, the stories, reels, videos and grid posts I share on Instagram, or the Facebook posts. I am more than happy to give you practical ideas that you can apply today.
I am fuelled by coffee so if you fancy treating me then I would gratefully accept!
