My name is Fazila Dawson. I am a qualified Relationship Counsellor who works with both couples and individuals. In addition to my qualifications, I have had additional training in infertility counselling through the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA). I am also registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy, a professional body that ensures Counsellors and Psychotherapists work to ensure ethical practice for our clients.
I provide counselling on the Southside of Glasgow from Southside Counselling and Therapy Centre and have started offering online counselling due to covid 19 (for which I have undertaken additional training).
I use an integrative counselling approach, combining psychodynamic, systemic and attachment-based models. This approach understands relationships and human development in the context of past and present experiences and takes into account the broader context we live in.
Working in a warm, gentle, and balanced way and with the client’s objectives in mind is key in my approach. I utilise varied theoretical lenses, psychoeducational material, reflection, and sometimes creative approaches to help clients find greater clarity on their concerns, build self-awareness, and strengthen or develop new coping mechanisms.
