Linda Donnelly- Reg Member BACP. PG Dip - Peaceful Paths
I have a real passion and enthusiasm for counselling and feel it’s a privilege that clients trust me to share their experiences of life. Taking your first steps in to counselling can be a daunting experience. I understand the trepidation and courage required to make that appointment. My hope is that with the grounded warmth I bring into counselling and provisions of a safe space for you to explore difficult thoughts and feelings, I can make you feel more comfortable in your decision. I work in an empathic, un-judgemental and respectful way. My work is supporting you to better cope or understand the issues and the feelings that are overwhelming you.
My experience in counselling has been varied I have worked with anxiety, depression, other mental health issues, physical and sexual assault, working with young people, working with couples and relationships to name but a few. This has provided me with experience in various issues that are brought by the clients of many different background and experiences. I am qualified in person centred counselling, CBT, Relationship counselling, young people counselling and addiction counselling. I currently work in a University, College and a mental health organisation. I have also worked in a relationship counselling organisation, bereavement counselling and addiction counselling.
We can have an initial meeting to help you decide if you wish to continue with me as your counsellor the journey you take on your counselling could be as short or as long as you require as the counselling moves at your pace.
