Donna Sullivan - BACP Registered Counsellor
I'm really interested in people - who we are and why we become who we are. In order to understand ourselves it can help to talk about ourselves, our experiences and feelings. I can offer a safe, secure and non judgemental space where you can do this. Together we can work out why you have reached a point in your life that may be causing you problems, or why you are feeling a certain way. I work with people who are overwhelmed by their circumstances or feel anxious and depressed and find it difficult to move forward. Counselling can give you an opportunity to examine how you can change and improve your circumstances.
I am an integrative counsellor which means that I have been trained in a variety of counselling theories and practice. My approach will always be to start with you and your experience. By getting to know you and developing our relationship, we will together help make sense of what brings you to counselling. Having the space to explore your thoughts, feelings and actions will help identify how you can be more in control, and be able to move forward in a way that is best for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a postgraduate diploma and a Masters in Counselling from the University of Manchester, and am qualified to work with couples as well as individuals. I have a certificate in psychosexual therapy for individuals and couples. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I have a wealth of counselling experience. As well as private practice where I cover a range of presenting issues, I have worked with offenders in prison and at a small charity which provided women's outreach services. I am also trained in trauma work and supported survivors of the Manchester bombing.
I work around issues such as anxiety, loss and depression. I also specialise in relationship issues, and have particular interest in how men and women communicate and share their vulnerability to each other. I am currently employed in helping men and women improve their relationships, and practise as a psychosexual therapist for a charity.
