Your Counsellor 

My name is Donna, and I've always known my life purpose is to assist others.

This is evident from the various roles I've had in business, marketing and customer service, along with nineteen years working as a Secondary Education Teacher. During this time, I have had my eyes opened to the many mental, physical, social and emotional concerns the youth of today have and continue to experience. I have experience working across diverse cultures and with the LGBTQI+ community.

 

My mission is to assist you on a deeper level to be empowered, find hope, and strengthen your belief in self to improve wellbeing. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, such as Person-centred, Solution Focused, Strength-based, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Emotion-focused Therapy, amongst others. The knowledge, skills and understanding I have obtained over the years will enable me to best meet your needs. 

I am informed in:

  • Trauma and Counselling

  • Mental Health Assessment and Intervention

  • Loss and Grief

  • Addiction Counselling

  • Group Facilitation

  • Working with Couples, Families and Children

  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Skills

My Qualifications: 

  • Master of Counselling

  • Bachelor of Education (Secondary)

  • Associate Diploma of Business (Marketing - MCA)

  • Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

  • Certificate III in Hospitality 

I feel deeply honoured and privileged to assist others, and value the trust placed in me. 

I would be honoured if I am intrusted to assist you.
