About me

Welcome…

Hello and thank you for reading my profile.

If you are experiencing a difficult or challenging time in your personal or professional life it can help to talk to a qualified counsellor.

I am a professionally qualified counsellor based in Eastleigh. I can provide counselling for adults, children and adolescents.

Choosing the right counsellor can be difficult. I can offer a FREE initial 20 minute consultation, either by telephone or face to face. This would give us the opportunity to chat and discuss your expectations and whether you are comfortable for us to work together.

As a Humanistic Counsellor I offer you the time and space to explore how you are feeling in a non-judgmental, confidential and comfortable space. As your counsellor my role is to listen, support and enable us to work through your difficulties together in a safe environment.

Healing doesn’t mean the damage and hurt never existed. It purely means the damage and hurt no longer controls your life.

My practice is located within central Eastleigh. Close to public transport and there is plenty of parking available.

If you would like to discuss your requirements or find out more about counselling you are very welcome to call me in confidence on 07396 595593 and leave me a message or alternatively you can email me donnalovecounselling@gmail.com
