Donna Yearwood TA therapist transactional analysis UKCP black therapist

Hi, my name is Donna (Dee)

You may be here because life has presented you with challenges that feel overwhelming, and you're seeking a safe space to explore and understand your thoughts and emotions. It could be that you're facing difficulties in your relationships, be it with family, friends, or romantic partners, and you're looking for guidance on how to navigate these complexities.

Perhaps you’re here because you feel like you’re carrying the world on your shoulders and you're grappling with issues such as anxiety, depression, or stress, and you're searching for coping strategies and support. Perhaps you’re feeling as though you’re spinning many different plates and finding it difficult to let go.

Embarking on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth can be uncertain, and I understand that taking the step towards personal therapy might feel like a leap into the unknown and may feel a bit daunting. The idea of sharing your innermost thoughts with a stranger might be unfamiliar and I recognise you may be experiencing a mixture of emotions. I’m here to create a safe and supportive space for you and to assure you that you're not alone in those feelings and It’s okay to feel this way.

If you’re here because you find yourself stuck in patterns of behaviour that you want to change but are unsure how to do so. Counselling can provide a reflective space to examine these patterns and work towards personal development.

I acknowledge the uniqueness of every individual's journey, and I'm here to support you on the path to discovering more about yourself. We can navigate the twists and turns together, fostering resilience and empowerment.

I apply an intersectional lens to my work, paying attention to the social and cultural impacts of our lived experience. Respecting and understanding diverse backgrounds is integral to my practice. I am dedicated to providing a culturally sensitive and inclusive therapeutic environment where you feel seen, heard, and valued.

 

I believe in the power of empathy and compassion as catalysts for change. As well as understanding that our stories, woven with experiences, challenges, and triumphs, play a pivotal role in shaping who we are.

 

My therapeutic approach is rooted in the principles of Transactional Analysis (TA) - a powerful tool for unravelling the layers of communication and understanding in your relationships. Enriched by Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and driven by a relational and integrative approach. In essence what this means is empowering you to reframe perspectives, overcome limiting beliefs, and enhance communication within relationships, paving the way for personal growth and achievement, whilst creating a safe and judgment-free space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, met with empathy, respect, and understanding. 

 

 If you are ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation. I invite you to reach out. Together, we will navigate the challenges you're facing and explore the possibilities that lie ahead and work towards a brighter, more fulfilling future.
