Hello and thank you for visiting dhtlondoncounselling.com. My name is Domonique and I am from the UK. From childhood, I always had a passion to learn. Mental health became an interest for me in my teens, and keen to understand more, I secured my first employment in a residential setting for those recovering from psychosis.
In 2011 I completed my Bsc in Psychology and became a Personal Assistant to vulnerable people. This included those with Learning Disabilities and Autism. I enjoyed this so much I later started my own home-care organisation which was incredibly rewarding. I also began working for Relate around this time, where I delivered the Separated Parenting Programme.
Committed to continue learning, I enrolled onto the Masters Degree in Relationship Therapy at The Relate Institute. I became the Lead Counsellor for a local Charity supporting families and loved ones of those with addiction, later becoming Director, before focusing on developing my counselling career.
Alongside offering Couples Therapy since 2013, I have worked in numerous settings such as a College and University counselling staff and students. I devised support groups for exam stress, and lectured the level 5 students in Counselling. I have worked in the NHS and Forensic settings offering Counselling, Critical Incident Debriefing, Mediations, Support Groups, Coaching and delivering Stress Management Training, and also Private Practice where I have met a variety of people for individual, relationship, and family work.
I am passionate about offering therapy through a variety of techniques, and I adapt the way I work to meet your needs. My aim is for you to feel as comfortable as possible, and for us to work together to tackle any difficulties you may have.
The quote below by Maya Angelou is something that resonates with me:
'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'
I offer a non-judgemental, caring, and empathic space for you to talk, share, and grow.
My main qualifications include:
MA in Relationship Therapy
Professional Certificate in Psychosexual Therapy
Critical Incident Debriefing
Rewind Therapy (For Trauma and phobias)
Fully Qualified in EMDR (Trauma Therapy)
