Donna Wilson MBACP
Life probably feels difficult for you right now. You may be suffering from anxiety, depression, or feel that something is simply ‘not right’, leaving you confused or stuck in old patterns of thinking and behaviour.
It may be unclear what is causing you to feel the way you do or, you might have a sense that the difficulties unfolding right now are rooted in your past. Counselling and psychotherapy sets out to explore and raise awareness of the issues, past and present, that may be causing you distress.
As a humanistic therapist, I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore what is adversely impacting your life. I bring to our work my own experience of being a 'client' in therapy; this enables me to be wholeheartedly beside you on your journey. I work alongside you in the context of a supportive, respectful and collaborative relationship. It may be helpful to know that feeling really heard can alleviate distress and a better understanding of your struggle can lead to lasting change.
Therapy is a deeply personal endeavour, it is important therefore that you feel comfortable with your therapist. With this in mind, our first session is an opportunity to meet each other, consider what you hope to achieve and think about how we might work towards that.
If you feel you would like to make contact you can either send an email on the link above or call me on my confidential mobile 'phone number; 07743 924978. I work from two locations; Banbury Therapy Centre and Brill, Buckinghamshire. Both locations have adequate parking.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a PG Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Metanoia Institute, London. A psychotherapeutic training is lengthy and integrates counselling and psychotherapy approaches. This supports me to work at depth with complex issues.
I undertake regular professional supervision to support my practice and engage in continuing professional development training. I am in the final stages of completing an MSc in Humanistic Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute, London, affiliated with Middlesex University.
Alongside private practice I have worked within local charitable organisations for several years. This reflects my commitment to provide mental health support to those who may not ordinarily have access to psychological services. I currently hold an Honorary Contract within an NHS Eating Disorders Department dealing with complex disordered eating.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abide by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy www.BACP.org.
I charge £50 for a 50 minute session.
I work from comfortable discreet surroundings in North Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
Therapy can be shorter or longer-term dependent on your needs.
