Donna Wilson MBACP Registered - Experienced Adult & Student Therapist
Your reason for seeking out therapy is unique to you. You may be suffering from anxiety, depression or experiencing problematic relationships. The reason might be less clear, but you know that on some level you feel dissatisfied with how life is for you right now. Ultimately, what brings anyone to therapy is the sense that life feels difficult in some way.
It might help you to know that feeling really heard can be the first step to alleviating distress and gaining a better understanding of your struggle. Most people benefit from having a compassionate 'other' alongside them during unsettling periods, times of crisis or whilst navigating transition into each new life stage.
Therapy is a deeply personal endeavour; a space for self discovery and personal growth. As a humanistic therapist I work alongside you to support the exploration of your internal life, where you may develop self awareness and resilience. Part of the work may be to explore unhealthy patterns of thinking, feeling and behaviour. My approach is one of support and challenge in which I aim to facilitate understanding and lasting change. Crucially, I bring to the process my own journey of healing through therapy; this enables me to to be wholeheartedly beside you as you embark on yours.
Our first meeting is an opportunity to consider how we might work together to bring about the changes you are hoping for. If you would like to make contact please send an email using the link above.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a PG Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Metanoia Institute, London. A psychotherapeutic training is lengthy and supports me to work at depth with complex issues. My core training has extended to 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 am an experienced student counsellor working within close proximity to Oxford Brookes Headington Campus.
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 undertake regular professional supervision to support my practice and engage in continuing professional development (CPD).
