Donelle Green



Hello my name is Donelle Green, BA of Psychology & Counselling and M of Counselling & Psychotherapy, and I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I am also a member of the professional association Pacfa. I am passionate about your emotional and psychological wellbeing, and the health of your relationships, with others and yourself. I genuinely love my work and look forward to helping you explore, grow, develop and manage your worries in a supportive and non-judgemental way. The way I work with clients is Integrative, this means that I do not use only one therapeutic method, model or tool to help you understand yourself or your difficulties. This is because everyone is unique, and the difficulties people experience can impact them in many different ways. So, when I work with someone, I do not assume that what is helpful for A also works for B and C. You are much more complex than that and deserve therapy that is not a one size fits all approach. Some of the models, ways of thinking and tools I have studied and trained in, and might use in our work together are-

  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy- the aim of this way of looking at your difficulties is to develop understanding and insight. When you gain understanding into why you may be experiencing the difficulties you are, we can then work toward changing it.
  • Family Systems – this model looks at you in relation to the family you grew up in, the things you learned and experienced there and how these may impact the way you think about yourself, relationships and family and also the world we live in.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – this way of understanding people looks at the way you think and how that affects how you feel and behave as a result. This therapy often involves using tools like sheets to record your thoughts and feelings at home which we then explore in your sessions.
  • Couple therapy- couple therapy helps you to understand your intimate partner relationship and develop more useful and fulfilling ways of interacting with each other. This may include work around the way you communicate, how you manage arguments, how you cope with difficult events that impact you both or any other issue you may be experiencing that affects the quality of your relationship.
