COVID-19 Although I have had to suspend face to face counselling please be aware that I am offering secure online therapies using a variety of methods including telephone, chat-box, e-mail and video . Please make contact for further information or check out my website and head to the drop-down menu, page Online Therapy.
These are uncertain times at the moment and we are all having to adjust to a new way of living and some of us may find this difficult especially managing our mental and emotional health. Right now it's never been more important to take time for yourself and take care of yourself. If you are struggling please be assured that I am trained and experienced in delivering online therapy to my clients. Take care, stay safe and keep well.
Hi, I'm Donna Webb and I qualified as a counsellor in 2009. I am a member of the BACP and work closely to their ethical framework. I am DBS (Disclosing & Barring Service) checked and I am insured to practice.
Are you constantly focussing on your life hoping you are doing well but lack self belief and confidence? Are your relationships, your career, your education or your health being effected because of your lack of confidence causing you to feel anxious and stressed leading you to withdrawing from the world and leaving you with a sense of sadness?
This may feel like an overwhelming time in your life but I can help you to shift these feelings. I will provide a safe and nurturing space so you feel comfortable and secure enabling you to explore your self-esteem and what it is that may be contributing to how you see yourself in the world.
I work in a person centred way, in a warm and empathic environment which allows you to feel accepted:- encouraging your confidence to grow . Gently exploring, you will be able to express what you are thinking and feeling and if at times you struggle we can work creatively to help you communicate how you experience your world and how this effects you.
Committing to therapy can feel daunting, that is why I offer a free initial session of 20 minutes to see how we get on and answer any questions or queries you may have. This can be done face2face, online via video link or by phone. I want you to feel safe and secure so you feel confident in your choice of therapist.
I have specialism and interest in working creatively with those who find it difficult to express themselves verbally. Maybe you feel very disconnected from your feelings and struggle to express them. Working creatively is a great way to allow you to explore your emotions in an expressive way without having to feel pressured into explaining through conversation. Clients often surprise themselves how connected they are to their "story" once given the space to explore differently, finally having the ability to understand and to accept building resilience and confidence.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
