TESTIMONIALS

Hear from some of our clients

Donna was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn’t be happier. She has been great with my daughter in helping her deal with some issues. She’s very friendly, approachable but most of all made my daughter feel very safe and secure. My daughter absolutely loves her.

I have been seeing Donna Cameron for the past 2 years and have found her to be professional and of high ethical standards in our therapy sessions. She has guided me through my tough times and her personal one on one service is exceptional, compassionate and professional. I highly recommend her.

My life has changed because of Donna. I have anxiety but I didn’t realise all the little things I was doing it make it worse. While I will never live a life without anxiety, Donna has given me the tools to manage it. I’m now in control, not my anxiety. I am constantly referring my friends and my colleagues to Donna because not only do I now have the tools to deal with my anxiety but I have the tools to deal with the big stuff life throws at me. My quality of life has improved radically.

Myself and other family members have attended counselling sessions with Donna at various times when seeking guidance for personal issues including marital, relationship and anxiety related problems. Donna provides a non-judgmental and safe environment where you feel supported and at ease to discuss any issue no matter how personal. I love Donna’s proactive and practical approach to problem solving and I would recommend her to anyone needing someone to help them provide coping strategies through a difficult situation in their lives.

Sometimes we all need some additional support, and a different perspective on our issues. Whilst I was initially reluctant to try counselling, a series of life events left me close to a breakdown – and I found myself on Donna’s couch. Donna patiently held space for me, really listened to me, and helped me to move through the anger and grief I had been stuck in after losing a child. She is kind, compassionate, genuine, and funny – it’s like talking to a good friend. Her wisdom, practical advice, and realness will make you feel both supported and empowered. I pop back in to see her when life gets a bit too much, and often recommend her to people who are going through a hard time.

Donna is insightful, caring and provides practical and sensible strategies. She makes her clients feel at ease and by way of her approachable nature mixed with a sense of humour and empathy. I’ve recommended Donna to a number of friends and family – both male and female and of various ages- who, like me, have been very impressed with her service and who have become “regulars”. I am very grateful to Donna and the team at Couch Therapy for their care. The reception staff are always professional and efficient. This is a great practice.

I was a client of Mrs. Donna Cameron for approximately 3 years. She was very quickly able to figure out the best way to communicate with me and therefore assist me with my issues of a severe depression. Donna was always very prompt and professional to deal with and I’d happily recommend her for anyone having any kind of mental health problems.

I had never been to see therapist before so I was little bit nervous to knock on the door but I am so happy now that I met Donna. She is the person who easy to talk to makes you feel like you’re talking to your good friend. She just doesn’t tell me what to do but listen to me what I want to do/be then guides me and gives me some great advices and tips. I have some issues with my partner but after every session my head is a lot clear and thinking positive. I miss her when she’s on holidays!

Donna Hughes from The couch therapy has guided and helped my Daughter through the most difficult challenges and emotional stages from age 6 to mid teens. Her talent as a psychologist working with both families and children reconnects the family unit. Donna’s set of skills are highly recommended when trauma or uncertainly prevail and you need to move forward in your life. Sometimes it is both reassuring to have that extra confidential person to speak to and offload.

I was feeling nervous for my first visit with Donna but once I met her and we went into her office I found her very welcoming and friendly. Donna is very easy to talk to about anything at all and she is not a judgemental person. I definitely needed her guidance and her thoughts on problems I was experiencing. I had previously been seeing a psychiatrist for the last two years and had not improved. Donna gave me hope that I could get better and I have. My life now is so much better and with Donna’s help I am keeping my depression under control. Although it is now 5 years since my first visit I still see Donna a few times a year to top up her original assistance and to keep me on track.
