Dawn Cox, RCC, M.Ed.:
” I see that the complexities of food and body related disorders are surprisingly misunderstood in our culture and there is a great need for support in this area. For this reason I am passionate about being a part of helping others understand themselves and their behaviours better in order to better create more of what they want in their lives.”
Dawn is Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. Since graduating from the University of Victoria’s Educational Psychology Counselling Program with a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology, Dawn’s studies and training have focused on trauma recovery, multicultural counselling, couples counselling and the areas of self-concept and self-esteem.
Since joining the CEDRIC Centre, Dawn has embraced The CEDRIC Method, and has combined it with her extensive knowledge of how the brain works to help clients ‘re-jig’ their thinking in order to arrive at a healthy relationship with food and body image. We are extremely pleased to have her on our team. Dawn is based in Victoria and sees clients at her downtown office, but is also equipped to provide counselling via Skype, with supplemental support via phone and email for those who wish to take advantage of her counselling services from a distance.
Dawn has also been a crisis and long-term counsellor for the Women’s Sexual Assault Centre and worked for 5 years with survivors of traumatic brain injury.
She is also a counsellor and case manager for Lifetime Networks Victoria, an organization that builds safe and secure futures for those isolated and vulnerable due to disability within our community. On top of her work as a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the CEDRIC Centre, Dawn also has a private practice working in the above mentioned areas as well as depression, anxiety, life transition, grief and loss and mood disorders.
