Our Foundations


New Dawn, originally ‘Rachamin’ was founded in 2002 by a group of Christians who perceived a need for affordable, accessible counselling in the community.

We have evolved and grown over the years and now comprise a diverse team of counsellors, working together. Still holding to a Christian ethos we share core values of caring, giving and listening to people in need.


The Centre welcomes clients from all backgrounds regardless of their faith, ethnicity and sexual orientation. It prides itself on being a warm, welcoming and safe environment where people are accepted as they are. 

The business of New Dawn is overseen by a board of directors who are all qualified counsellors.


The chair and vice chair of the board change on an annual basis and all counsellors can put themselves forward for election onto the Board.


The whole team of counsellors, students and volunteers give their time freely to take on various roles and attend regular meetings that ensure the smooth day to day running of New Dawn Counselling Centre.

 New Dawn can receive donations towards its running costs or the Bursary fund that is used to help clients on a low income pay for counselling. Even £10 could make  a difference -please contact us to arrange any donations.
