I’m Dawn Croydon-Fowler

Understanding Toxic Family Dynamics

Are you struggling with toxic family relationships? Whether it’s dealing with toxic parents, a spouse, or even adult children, I am here to help. As a registered, qualified, and experienced therapist, I specialize in working with individuals facing these challenges. My goal is to provide a safe space for healing and growth.

Addressing Modern Relationship Challenges

In today’s fast-paced world, modern values and approaches significantly impact how we interact. These changes often lead to dysfunctional and toxic relationships. I help individuals and couples understand these influences and navigate their effects on personal relationships. By doing so, we can address the root causes of dysfunction and pave the way for healthier interactions.

Healing from Toxic Relationships

Healing from toxic relationships is a journey, and I’m here to guide you every step of the way. As an individual, I will help you identify and work through the negative impacts of these relationships. Together, we will establish values and strategies that align with your goals, enabling you to achieve the outcomes you desire.

Navigating Relationship Dynamics for Couples

For couples, understanding how modern values affect your relationship is crucial. I assist couples in navigating these complexities, helping you develop a relationship that works for both partners. By addressing underlying issues and fostering open communication, we can create a healthier, more fulfilling partnership.

Building Healthy Relationships

Creating and maintaining healthy relationships is possible, even after experiencing toxicity. My therapeutic approach is tailored to your unique needs, focusing on healing, understanding, and growth. Through our work together, you can develop the tools and insights needed to foster positive, supportive relationships.
