2 Years Post-Registration Experience

Hello. I'm Donna. I'm a registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I assist individuals with their emotional wellbeing. I hold private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. My focus involves Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), relationship problems and self esteem, as well as the particular obstacles encountered by men, transgender people and women.

What to Expect

An introductory assessment meeting helps you to discover if you are comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment meeting in Cookridge, Leeds.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts influence your feelings and behaviour. It identifies and addresses unhelpful thoughts which perpetuate the problems you encounter. The aim of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests CBT for alcohol dependence, anorexia nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), panic disorder, self harm and social anxiety disorder.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which issue regarding your childhood and/or adult life you explore. The objective of counselling is to enable you to talk about a difficulty and find a way forward which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you face. It considers your ideas, feelings and significant events in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or find appropriate ways of managing.
