Donna Louise Shinkins,
MA Psychotherapy & Counselling

In addition to running my own practice I have experience of working within various mental health and charity settings as a counsellor and psychotherapist. I have been employed by the NHS since 2008 as a mental health worker dealing with pyschosis and spend 1 day a week counselling. This is all drawn from a desire for personal growth using innate resources.

I offer individual counselling through talking therapies. I pride myself in being led by client preferences.

I first met Donna in January 2010, her unassuming nature immediately put me at ease and allowed me to feel comfortable confiding in her.
