Our therapy and counselling services
We work with children, young people, adults and couples across our service.
Founded by Dr Louise McDonnell, as a Doctor of Counselling Psychology, she has spent over ten years in academic training and clinical practice:
“Having spent so much time working in Durham City I really felt a close connection to the area and people and chose to set up my own private practice in the area.”
Louise made it a personal goal to work across different settings and with age groups ranging from 6 – 80 years old+ before deciding to open her private practice. She has worked in secondary aged alternative education settings, Durham University’s counselling service, Holme House Prison, Lanchester Road Hospital, Work Placed Counselling Services and several GP surgeries in Durham.
