Hello my name is Donna and I am a therapeutic counsellor.
The decision to see a counsellor can be very frightening, but if you are reading this, then you have made a very brave step with self care and compassion. There are times in our lives when we need someone to talk too and I am here to support you. I will make every attempt to provide you with a safe and comfortable space in which to explore whatever may be concerning you.
My main aim is to provide a safe, non-judgemental space where we can build an authentic, open and honest therapeutic relationship. We will explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions in order to help you improve your own personal awareness. My aspiration is to help you understand patterns in your own behaviour and why certain life experiences can leave us feeling out of control, helpless and confused.
As an integrative counsellor, I am trained and skilled in drawing on differing theories in order to support the therapeutic counselling process while also tailoring my skills to suit the needs of the individual.
I am trained in the following therapies:
- Person-Centred Counselling
- Psychodynamic therapy
- Transactional Analysis
- Play Therapy

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
