Hello and Welcome to Life Designs.


Have you arrived at this site because you are searching for help and answers or do you know exactly what you want? My hope for you is within these pages you will find what you are looking for. If you have unanswered questions please feel free to ask them.

Like many of my clients you may be nervous or embarrassed about seeking counselling, believing adults should be able to cope or that issues need to be earth-shattering to justify professional help. Some clients fear asking for help because it might make the problems more real. The truth is, it's safe to seek help and a sign of strength and self-respect.

By providing a calm, confidential and accepting environment I've helped hundreds of people overcome their difficulties and I can help you too, all you have to do is ask, call 0161 710 2468, 07818 840 841 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

I'm looking forward to meeting you.

Dawn Haworth
UKCP Registered Psychotherapist & EMDR Practitioner

How can you help me?

Events from the past can affect what we do now and in the future, when those events prevent us from living the life we want, it i€™s time to take action. I will help you learn how to:

BulletHandle your emotions.
BulletChange unwanted behaviours and reactions.
BulletCreate motivation and confidence.
BulletRealise your potential and become the person you want to be.

Making an appointment is a way of reminding yourself - you're worth it. If you still find the thoughts of asking for help scary, you might try:

Bullet Ask a trusted friend to come along and wait for you.
Bullet Making your appointment for a day and time when you have plenty of time to relax.

Confidentiality and discretion are paramount; all appointments are arranged and timed so you won'€™t accidentally meet other clients arriving or leaving Life Designs.




Dawn freed me from a fear of being out and about, after just one afternoon I went shopping, on my own for the first time in 4 years.

I hated my job in the factory and decided something must change. At that time I couldn’t imagine what was in store. In less than 5 years I was working in television and starting the career of a life time.
