Donna Mitchell M.A.

Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology from Rhodes University.

I am registered with the HPCSA (Health Professions Council of South Africa). My practice number is PS0126004. I’m also a registered member of the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) in the UK. My practice number PYL 35806.

My Approach:

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 Before you book, let me tell you a bit more about how I work.

I don’t apply a ‘one-size-fits all’ approach to my clients. Rather I want to get on the same page as you and use the psychological tools that I think will best assist you. 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.

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’ve helped individuals and couples to look inward, to process things holding them back and to stop getting in their own way. Allowing them to live meaningful lives in line with what they truly value.


If you would like to learn more about therapy with me or book a free consultation, you can go to my website: There you will find loads of psychology videos that I've made, the FAQs that I've answered as well as well as all my available times.
