About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to my page, my name is Donna, thank you for taking the time to read through, as it is my aim to help you live a more fulfilled life. I am a qualified, experienced counsellor, specialising in abuse and trauma. I can help you in the management of issues such as, low moods, relationship issues, loss and grief, self-harm, anxiety, PTSD, low self-esteem, depression, life purpose, and many other issues that may be troubling you. I will work hard to explore with you, a way to understand your worries and address your individual needs. Do you experience yourself feeling like you can not manage all the demands of everyday life? That you are letting everyone, including yourself, down? Or that you wish you could hide under the duvet until this feeling goes away? Do you have trouble sleeping at night, as your mind is racing with thoughts? Have you ever found yourself thinking, why me? What is wrong with me? What have I done wrong? All of these can be irritating, difficult, confusing and can leave you feeling like you have to face life’s struggles alone. If any of these statements feel familiar for you, and you have experienced these feeling on regular basis, counselling may be just what you need. I appreciate it can be extremely daunting when you are trying to find a counsellor that you can trust and connect with, that is why I provide a safe, confidential and genuinely friendly, non-judgemental space for you to explore a way forward for the reasons you are seeking counselling. We will work collaboratively within a good working relationship to utilise the best modality of counselling, so that you can maximise the benefits, and use your strengths and skills in dealing with any areas that are difficult for you to manage right now. I find it is helpful to meet for an initial free half an hour, to discover the emotional difficulties in your life, as when they become overwhelming, they can interrupt you living the life that you feel you want to.
