Dr Donna Rooney (CPsychol, DClinPsy, BSc (Hons), PGcert)
I am a chartered clinical psychologist working within the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire region. I have over ten years’ experience working within mental health, with nine years working as a Clinical Psychologist within the NHS.
Making the decision to enter into therapy is an important one and to ensure that therapy is successful it is vital that you find the therapist who is right for you. You must be confident and comfortable with the therapist, their experience and their clinical supervision. I work in a friendly, approachable and professional way; bringing a collaborative style, to work with you to understand the difficulties that you are experiencing and your goals for therapy. We can then agree the best pathway for you to achieve these. I am enthusiastic about working in psychological therapies and passionate about the benefits that it can bring to your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, emotional regulation difficulties, eating disorders, trauma, loss/grief, relational problems, personality disorders, OCD and abuse-related difficulties, including PTSD and Psychosis. I work with individuals, couples and groups.
Over the last few years I have been working with NHS staff and managers, along with other public and private organisations, to enable them to ensure that their workforce is healthy and therefore working to the best of their capacity. This has included providing organisational health-checks, working with individuals specifically around work-related stress, consulting with immediate line manager’s to support them supporting staff members and consulting with higher management to support a strategic change to develop a healthy workplace.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
