Donna Galea-Bateman MBACP (Accred) Counsellor & Clinical Supervisor
I'm a person centred counsellor and clinical counselling supervisor, registered and accredited to The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). Fully qualified and experienced, with an advanced DBS certificate, I offer one to one personal therapy and work confidentially with both adults and adolescents.
As a person centred counsellor, I offer a safe, empathic and non-judgemental environment that supports you to reflect on and explore those issues of concern to you. Through the therapeutic relationship we work together to make sense and meaning of life's difficulties with the view that deeper understanding makes things clearer and gives you the opportunity to affect change.
Counselling is not always about change however, as circumstances of life outside of your control are sometimes difficult to cope with. An unconditional, accepting and confidential relationship will support you to reflect on positive ways forward.
My practice experience includes working with both adults and adolescents in private practice, in schools, with voluntary organisations and as part of the NHS.
As a qualified and experienced counselling supervisor I provide clinical counselling supervision for counsellors at every stage of qualification and for those working in helping professions.
My counselling room is situated in a therapy centre providing a range of therapeutic
services. A relaxing environment located on the outskirts of a village it provides a quiet space. The building provides disabled access, ample on-site parking and comfort facilities.
I am available daytime Fridays and weekday evenings 5pm - 7pm
