About me and my therapy practice

My name is Devon McDonald and I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

My training and primary orientation is psychodynamic and I work to the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and Professional Conduct Procedures.

I offer professional counselling facing a wide range of personal issues and challenges. I work together with clients to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours which may be troubling them. I am currently working with adolescents and adults with a wide range of backgrounds.

The purpose of therapy is not to give advice but instead to help you to understand your feelings and behaviour more clearly which can empower you to make changes should you wish to.

I offer a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space to explore your feelings and behaviour in an environment that is confidential and free from intrusion.

Practice description

Many people experience low mood, anxiety or depression at some point in their life. If you feel that things are too much, you may feel overwhelmed or maybe you are not sure how to cope, it might be that it is the right time for you to try therapy. The aim of counselling is to explore the causes of these difficult emotions in a safe and ethical environment. This offers an opportunity to work towards healthier life choices, better relationships and higher self-esteem.

​​Ultimately therapy offers you the experience of sharing with someone who is non-judgemental and empathic and who actively listens to what you have to say. The time you spend with your therapist is purely for and about you. In this busy world, it is a time for reflection and self care.

To make an appointment, you can call me in confidence on 07960 084831 or alternatively email me at devon.mcdonald.counselling@gmail.com.  

My first session

I offer an initial session during which time we would explore together why you have come to therapy and whether we think we could work together. It is important that you feel you are with the right therapist and as such there is no obligation to commit to therapy after this session. If we decide to work together, in order for the therapy to be effective and for trust to develop, a regular weekly session is deemed appropriate.
