Dr Donna Coupland Ph.D.
I am a highly qualified and experienced psychodynamic counsellor. In addition to my membership of The British Psychoanalytic Council I am also registered and accredited as a senior practitioner by the BACP.
I have worked in the NHS as a Senior Psychotherapist, and have been in private practice for the last 8 years.
I offer both short term and long term counselling and am able to help clients with a wide range of issues, including, but not limited to: anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family issues, separation and divorce, affairs and betrayals, postnatal depression, abuse, stress and bereavement.
I also find that a lot of people don't quite know what's wrong in their life, but that they feel that something is missing, or that they are increasingly aware that they are unhappy. I am able to work with you if you don't know what is wrong, but you want some help in exploring who you are and what you want out of life.
You are more than welcome to get in touch just to ask some questions about counselling or therapy, I will be happy to help.
