Donna’s therapeutic approach is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere in which people can feel safe to explore the nature and meaning of their present difficulties, and so find effective ways to resolve them.
Donna utilises clinically proven and evidence-based therapies. Different treatment approaches are used to best suit the client and their goals. The type of treatment provided can range from brief, focused treatment for acute symptoms or problems, to more long-term therapy for entrenched personality, relationship or coping issues.
