About Donna

In 2001 when I was 9 years old, a family member who was a huge part of our families lives died by Suicide. This completely turned my world upside down & changed life as we knew it, forever. I learned then that you never quite get over someone being taken from you in such tragic circumstances, you just learn to cope & that is my aim as a mental health professional, to get people to a place where you feel you are able to cope with any difficulties life sends your way.  At the age of 16, I experienced another traumatic series of events and again I had to learn how to cope, which took some time and support. From then I became disillusioned with the number of people I could see struggling with issues, unable to resolve them. I felt at this point I could contribute to delivering an easily accessible service in our community (which at the time was not available, hence the online therapy grew), where people could be helped and supported through difficulties they were experiencing, without the run of the mill mental health road, in a way that worked for them, leading to a happier lives.
