Hi, I’m Donna and I live in Scotland and feel very lucky to have been trained by Carol Robertson.

I have trained in different therapies – Introduction to Counselling skills (COSCA), Master Practitioner of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Hypnotherapy, Life Coaching, Emotional Freedom Therapy and Reiki. I’m delighted to now add Havening as a fantastic way to support clients and I am at times amazed by how effective Havening is and how quickly change can happen. I also love that I can show my clients how to self haven and the confidence this gives them to be able to support themselves.

My aim is that people feel safe with me, trust that they can open up to me and understand that I will listen to them without judgement and show empathy.

My why is that I am passionate about supporting people with their mental health/ wellness and letting them know that it is safe to talk. Another area of interest to me is supporting people to help reduce the number of deaths by suicide.  (I am also a volunteer Samaritan, supporting people every week on the phone)

I support people with any level of anxiety from low self esteem and confidence issues through to dark/suicidal thoughts. I will help (12+ years old) with any issue from past or present – bullying, trauma, abuse, addictions, worried about an exam/presentation/job interview, confidence/ low self esteem, fear of judgement, I’m not good enough, my head is so full I overthink everything are just some examples of how I can support people.

Majority of my work is one to one client sessions, either face to face or through zoom and I do some online corporate work or with schools.

I have always loved to learn new things and I’m looking forward to expanding my knowledge of Havening by learning from Havening community.
