“My father died of Cancer in April 2018 and I thought I was coping. It wasn’t until I sat in front of Dowega that I realised I wasn’t. This beautiful soul helped me come to terms with my grief, identify past hurts and empowered me to believe in myself again and make changes to my life that have brought me back to happy. Calm, quietly listening, thoughtful and giving, Dowega imparts empathic wisdom that really helps you to process your feelings and find solutions to life’s dilemmas. Thank you for everything.” Linsey (Croydon)

“Dowega is and has been a phenomenal support system. She has enabled me to come to terms with the issues I have been facing in a safe, open and non-judgmental environment. For the first time, I have been able to be truly me; no pretending, no brushing things away and no hiding behind smart words. I have grown so much and I know I will continue to grow inside this space that Dowega has provided and consequently outside also. Therapy is not always easy, and during those sessions that are more challenging than the others, Dowega ensures that I’m relaxed and that I go at my own pace – she is always focused on the client. Therapy with Dowega is the best decision I’ve made in 2019.”

“I was at a phase in life when I didn’t know who to turn to as I had concerns about my teenage daughter. Then I had a chance meeting with Dowega whom I didn’t know was a counsellor at the time. It was a perfect timing! I signed up to her service and took my girl to Dowega for counselling. The first session was full of tears…my little girl cried! Emotions that have been suppressed inside of her came to the surface..lol! Wow! What an experience. Few sessions was all she needed and the change in my daughter was enirmous. Her countenance and general attitude has changed for the better. I no longer have concerns. I also had a few sessions for myself…How liberating to be able to piece together the puzzles that led to a better relationship between my daughter and I. Can’t thank Dowega enough for her gentleness and empathy throughout the sessions.”

Visiting and chatting with Dowega over the last few months has dramatically changed my outlook on events and the way that I analyse my behavior.  She has helped me to be kinder and more patient with myself and start the process of looking for the positives that I forget to notice.  Our weekly meetings were always something I looked forward to and I will forever be grateful for the kindness and encouragement that she showed me when I was at my lowest.
