Our experience enables us to offer effective individualized, neuro- feedback and counselling support. We treat a number of mental health concerns, and provide a neutral ground to individuals and families who are wanting to improve their lives.
Our focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan which can include neurofeedback, brief counselling or a combination of both..
We promise to be there for you every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
I am a accredited Social Worker with over 20 years experience in human services and have always been passionate about getting the most out of the brain to improve people's satisfaction with life and reach their fullest potential.
I can work with you in traditional psychotherapy formats such as CBT but can also provide neurofeedback which trains the brain to produce less of the electrical frequencies associated with challenging thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
This process does not put anything into the brain, it just reads the frequencies and provides feedback in a fun way through a television monitor allowing your brain to make necessary adjustments. This is a bit like when you do not realise you have food on your face until you look in a mirror or someone tells you - this feedback is the same, but specifically for the brain.
Neurofeedback combined with psychotherapy can increase the effectiveness of both and speeds up recovery. However, if you would prefer to work with just one of the modalities, I am happy to be guided by you.
I strive to provide families with renewed hope for non chemical treatment and provide individually tailored treatment protocols that are fun and engaging for all ages.
We can provide traditional psychotherapy (counselling) for a variety of issues such as depression and anxiety.
Psychotherapy is commonly referred to as 'talk therapy' where we provide support and strategies to assist you to overcome the situation that is causing distress.
In Neurotherapy (Neurofeedback) we use non-invasive advanced computerised medical technology to conduct an EEG assessment to measure brainwaves in certain parts of the brain.
Through this process we can identify the brainwaves that are causing dysregulation (i.e. causing the behavioural issues, lack of concentration, migraines, sleep issues, depression or anxiety) – and we can then train the brain to reset these brainwaves.
Relationship counselling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and individuals and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.

At the end of June 2019 I was involved in a workplace fatality that deeply affected me. By Christmas 2019 I found myself at home, off work and being treated for PTSD. While psychiatric and psychological professionals have been a great help, it was not until I was introduced to Donna and started neurofeedback that I really started to make progress. Simply understanding what was wrong and most importantly being able to track progress in a tangible way has done more in a few sessions than 6 months of psychologists and antidepressants have. Very shortly after starting neurofeedback my sleep improved, anxiety and tension began to melt away and I am now beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel. There is a little way to go yet, but without Donna's expertise, and professionalism, the road would be a lot longer. For me neurofeedback has been the most effective non pharmaceutical treatment possible.
