Hi, I'm Donna and I'm so glad you're here. For me, counselling isn't just about tackling mental health concerns — it's a lifeline for those going through relationship challenges, tough life events, or grappling with behavioral issues. Consider me as a caring stranger, someone here to listen without judgment. I am well-versed in discussing a wide range of topics, no matter how sensitive or personal. I understand the unique needs of our community, and I’m here to offer a broad spectrum of services to cater to your individual journey. I also specialise in the areas of grief, loss and bereavement.
I will listen and take your lead on what you need. You are the expert in your life. Through empathetic listening and personalised guidance, I can help you understand and process your emotions, and provide a safe space for expression.
My aim is to help you make room for the memories, thoughts, and emotions you’re feeling without being overwhelmed by them. It would be my honour to be with you on this journey toward the outcomes you seek. My approach is, “one step at a time, one day at a time”. Come as you are. I will meet you where you are at.
