Donna Webb - Dee Estuary Counselling & Support
COVID-19 Although I have had to suspend face to face counselling please be aware that I am still offering a secure telephone and video counselling service. Please make contact for further information.
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 to adjust to especially the social isolation. It is important to take care of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. If you are struggling please be assured that I am offering telephone and video counselling which I am experienced in and that there will be flexibility in your appointments and times if needed. Take care, stay safe and keep well.
My name is 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 work ethically committing to supervision for the safety of my clients. I am DBS (Disclosing & Barring Service) checked and I am insured to practice.
Over the years I have worked within a number of agencies offering counselling and support on a variety of issues. I have worked in women's refuges working alongside those who have been through domestic abuse helping them to find their autonomous self. I held a position at SSAFA (Sailors, Soldiers Airmen and their Families Association) for many years and worked with a huge range of issues. Those who used SSAFA's support services dealt with many challenges including homelessness, PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), relationships, bullying, LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender), loneliness and isolation, harassment and self harm.
I also have experience of foster care, teen pregnancies, bereavement, the benefit system, trauma and long term health issues.
Recently I spent time as a school counsellor using play therapy to engage with primary school children. I hope to gain further experience as a children's counsellor in the future.
I will provide you with a safe and secure space to explore any issue you wish to bring to counselling and you will have the confidence to know that the space will be free from any preconceptions or judgements.
I work eclectically as an Integral Counsellor, I will always take your needs into account and recognise that everything past and present in your life is interconnected and how this may be impacting on the present moment. I hope to restore a positive sense for yourself and that your life becomes a more healthy and balanced one. I will use a variety of models, skills and tools. Further knowledge of these models can be found on my website, just head to the drop down menu.
As counsellors we too have to deal with the impact of life's stresses of everyday living and I believe it is important to find an outlet for these stresses. My own outlet is in art and design, music and being outside in nature.

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.
