About me

Hello, my name is Donna, and I work as a private psychological therapist. I have 18 years’ experience working in primary care settings as well as within a busy hospital, in medical psychology. I work with many psychological symptoms including long term conditions, and have a keen interest in helping you to move through any 'stuckness' to be able to live your life fully present.

I work using an attachment informed and compassionate approach to allow you to explore your concerns safely. We would then work together to plan therapy with the intention of empowering you to move forward in your life. I work online, via Zoom, allowing you to be in the comfort of your home and be able to attend from anywhere.

As a requirement of my training, I have had my own EMDR therapy and am aware therapy can be daunting. To help with this initial concern please do take advantage of my free 15 minute Zoom session so you can meet me to ask me questions and decide whether you would like to work with me. This is a no obligation appointment.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Additional information

I offer a FREE 15 minute consultation to give you a chance to meet me and for us to discuss what your goals for therapy are. This allows you a risk free appointment of 15 minutes. This appointment can be via telephone or Zoom. Should you opt for Zoom, you would need to register for a Zoom account, which would incur no cost to you.

Further information

I want to learn about what is preventing you from living the life you want. If you decide to book appointments, we will work collaboratively to find a way through using psychological therapy (i.e. CBT or EMDR). I work compassionately with a trauma and attachment informed approach. I am open to you contacting me via phone/email with questions about my approach with no pressure to book appointments with me. I also offer a free 15 minute Zoom appointment so you can meet me, with absolutely no obligation to proceed with me. Take care x
