About Donna Mitchell
So glad you found me hiding amongst all these other therapists!
I know it can be difficult to find a therapist who you feel connected to, someone who you can open up to. That is why I offer a free consultation session, with no strings attached.
This consultation gives you a chance to get a feel for how I work as a therapist. In this consultation we can look at what’s going on for you and figure out how you can move forward. You can also use this time to ask me any questions about therapy that you may have.
You can book a free consultation on my website www.talkfeelchange.com
Before you book, let me tell you a bit more about how I work.I’m an advocate for change when it’s necessary. I believe that no pattern is too fixed, and that you don’t have to continue living a life that doesn’t support your happiness.
I don’t use a ‘blank slate’ approach in which I sit in silence, or nod along repeating what you have said. Rather I engage with you, sharing my thoughts and insights. I will laugh with you when life is funny and I’ll be here for you when it gets you down. I don’t consider myself the expert on your life, I collaborate with you so that we can figure out your best path together.
I am devoted to your process of healing, and don’t apply a ‘one-size-fits all’ approach. Rather I want to get on the same page as you and work with you as an individual. I use an eclectic approach to therapy relying predominantly on my training in Narrative Therapy; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy. This means that I will use the therapeutic approach that I feel will best assist you.
This kind of therapeutic relationship can be rare to find, and powerful to experience. Clients have said that they feel truly heard and understood by me, and because of this they’ve learned more about themselves and their capabilities.
