Hello, I'm Donnah and I'm an Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.
Welcome to my page. How are you today?
Reaching out for counselling can seem daunting, but I can support you in making sense of your issues and challenges. Empathy and acceptance without judgement, are central to my counselling approach.
I provide a safe, calm and confidential space for you to explore your difficulties at your pace. Ultimately, to help make sense of your situation, with a view to fostering autonomy for positive change.
I am trained Integratively, which means I combine several approaches to suit each client individually. Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT and Transactional Analysis are central to much of my work, with an emphasis on building a trusting therapeutic relationship with my clients.
I offer short-term and longer-term open-ended sessions. That is something we can discuss during the initial session.
Currently, I can offer sessions via Zoom or phone or alternatively, 'Walk and Talk' sessions in parks around the SM3 area.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
