Hello! My name is Don.
I am an easy going person who treats each client the way that I would expect to be treated, that is with respect, honesty and integrity.
My style of approach is to encourage you (the client), to take back control as soon as possible. First of all in something small and gradually working towards the final goal. After all, my aim is to help you help yourself in becoming the person that you want to be – to give you a Life After Traumatic Events.
I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotist. accredited registrant of the National Counselling Society. I am very passionate about my work and often hear from clients how that has benefited them.
I have the experience of working with individual adults, young people and couples. My clients present with issues such as depression, anxiety, self esteem, relationship issues, domestic abuse, trauma, stress, bereavement and loss. Some present with issues which could a detrimental impact on their everyday lives.
I follow data protection policy and guidelines, thus ensuring confidentiality. I am DBS checked and have necessary insurance.
I started my career as a mechanic before diversifying to study and practice law. Since 2002 I have been retraining to enter the field of change work. My private practice, Life After Traumatic Events (LATE) evolved from personal life experiences involving traumatic events. LATE was set up with the vision of educating others who had been traumatised, to help them understand what was happening to them and why.
I have worked with people from conflict zones (both combatants and non-combatants), from areas such as the Far East, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Africa and Northern Ireland. I also work with those who have been affected by trauma through loss and bereavement, domestic violence, assault and traffic collisions.
I work from a humanistic integrative approach. Each person is different and so too is the way I work with each person.
