Hi. I am Debi Dawson – Change Therapist,
Reiki Master Teacher & Grey Area Drinking Coach

Welcome to Changing Status

Helping you to overcome any negative thoughts, emotions and behaviours, including PTSD, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Fears & Phobias, Habits & Addictions and Confidence

 “Helping you make the changes you want and need”

Working with people and helping them overcome problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviours has been my drive professionally for over 22 years. I am passionate about helping others, so much so that in 2011 I established Changing Status and have been lucky to witness some amazing changes in many clients. I am able to offer a bespoke service using a combination of my therapies tailoring them to your specific needs.  

My main areas of expertise are in helping people overcome: 

  • PTSD and Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Grey Area Drinking
  • Other connecting issues relating to the above, such as, confidence, self esteem, habits, addictions, fears and phobias.

What some of my previous clients have said…….

I had suffered from a bird phobia for as long as I can remember.  And when I say suffered, it wasn’t just myself who suffered, but also my husband, children – in fact anyone who ever went out of the house with me.  It had a huge impact on my life and where we visited as a family.   Two weeks ago, I began rapid eye movement therapy combined with hypnotherapy with Debi.  It was a very pleasant experience:  she is easy to talk to, warm and open.  The rapid eye movement was easy, quick and felt effortless, and this was followed by a relaxing hypnotherapy session. So easy it was that when I left the session, I had no idea how powerful it had actually been.  That evening I visited Clumber Park and had a walk around the lake.  Rather than skirting around the area where the geese were, I suggested walking though.  I was surprised to experience no fear – however I had yet to test this out on my biggest fear:  pigeons!  The next day I visited a seaside town and again was unperturbed by the seagulls.  I stood with my daughter to pay at a beach kiosk, when a pigeon flew down next to me (within a metre).  Previously, I would have run away in terror, not returned to the kiosk and would have spent the rest of the day looking out for any pigeons.  I was absolutely fine!  I was able to respond like anyone else in the queue – I had no reaction!  I have subsequently been for one more session as I just wanted to ensure I could sit outside, at a table with pigeons walking nearby.  I have since been into the town centre, walked passed pigeons and felt no fear or had to run away.   Today was my ultimate test as I visited my hairdresser who keeps peacocks.  Normally, I sit in the car until I can see they are nowhere near the door and run into the salon – I have even had to have the way cleared to my car before.  Today I went to see the peacock chicks and felt no fear as the male peacock walked right passed me a few times.  Thank you so much Debi – you have changed my life.

I went to Debs for a treatment as I had been suffering from chronic stress, fibromyalgia, constantly run down catching every virus going, lack of energy and trapped emotions.
She is the most lovely kind natured lady with very uplifting energy and instantly makes me feel at ease in her treatment room which is a lovely private sanctuary.
I had the iemt treatment which is a quick treatment and instantly made me feel better and removed thoughts and feelings of things which had been imprinted on me throughout my life.
Its miraculous.
Debs was very comforting and I can naturally open up to her at ease and my tears naturally flow and release which is a big thing for me . She is truly gifted and amazing at her job.
Also I had and continue to have reiki. It is a very comforting treatment , gets your body to fully relax and release all negative energy and blockages and gets all energy back flowing so the body can heal.
I had been suffering with a sore throat each time I had cane in to have the treatment and each time it instantly cleared it :))) wahooo absolutely amazing.
I feel better with more energy and less pain than I have in years.
I am entirely grateful to Debs .
Thank you so much you are a true angel. Xxx
